Figured I might as well start a build thread since I'm not actually getting anything done on this Jeep yet. Current Stats 1966 CJ-5 Tuxedo Park (per the VIN) Engine: F-134 Engine condition: Running. Lots of blue smoke/effective mosquito repellent. Transmission: 3-speed. Seems to work. Body condition: Seems solid aside from some genius who welded in new floor pans and just left the rotting old ones underneath. The support floor "channel" has rusted away and dangles freely under the Jeep in places. Brakes: Not working. An apparent master cylinder leak. Previous owner "just filled it up and pumped up the brakes" before leaving the house. Frame: Not seeing any problems on initial inspection. Other oddities: Someone fabricated in a rack & pinion steering assembly somewhere along the way. The gas tank is a plastic jug in the cargo area driven by an electric fuel pump...with the mechanical pump still in-line. My Plans Undecided? Apparently the tired F-134 is already bored 0.060 over and was rebuilt with questionable effectiveness a few years ago. I have a 2000 4.3 Vortec engine + SM465 that I originally had every intention of transplanting, but part of me doesn't want to see the little F-134 give up. I know the 4.3 would be a much better engine from a drive-ability perspective and the little 4-cylinder is clearly showing its age. Regardless of engine choice, I'll be pulling the tub and inspecting, repairing (if needed), and rust-proofing the frame as best I can. I'll also be doing all of the restorative body work--mostly fixing the messed up floor pan installation and dealing with the few rusty spots. Obviously it will need a full paint job. Not sure about that creatively engineered steering setup. This may be a case where I revert back to a semi-common upgrade for these Jeeps like the Saginaw steering option. However, my FIRST plan, before anything else? Finish getting my garage installed so I can move the Jeep indoors for all of this. My garage is currently a dug out hole in my yard pending some concrete work. More pictures coming tomorrow. Unfortunately, due to the garage situation above, real work won't really begin for a few weeks or so. Thanks for reading!
