Well, after many years of not touching my old jeep (15+), I finally decided to get after rebuilding it. First, a little history. I got this when I was 17, bought it from a local guy not knowing what it was, but just wanted a cool little jeep for on the farm and in the bush. It was a hack job at best, most everything didn't work. It didn't steer or stop, or start for that matter, but I was able to get it going decent enough that it was usable off road. The nicest thing was that it had a beautiful running rebuilt 225. I had become a member of this site years ago and used it as a great resource for information trying to figure out exactly what this jeep was cobbled together from. From what I figured out, is it had an approx 52 cj3a body grafted onto a 1971 cj5 chassis. It has the 225, t14, flanged 44 rear and 27 front with 4.88 gears, and I had put an Aussie locker in the rear, and a 2.5" procom lift cause the stock spring were sagegd right out. It also had a broken Husky overdrive on it, which I was able to repair with parts from Herm. So knowing what the chassis was, and that the flatfender body was pretty much junk, I began collecting old jeeps with the intentions of getting enough parts to put together the cj5 body that was supposed to be on it, and make it a nice usable jeep. Now being that I am in northern Alberta Canada, jeeps aren't that plentiful out here, and the ones that are here pretty much evaporated into rust years ago, so it has taken me a while. So that brings me to the plans I have for this jeep. The biggest thing that was holding me back was trying to find a repairable tub for it. I have for parts a 56, 60ish, another 71, a couple intermediate jeeps, and an 82+. I will post pics of the parts jeeps if anyone is interested. There's some decent goodies on some of them that are worth saving. I have a half decent intermediate tub that will be the basis for the build, once I fix the rusty floorboards. The tub from the other 71 is rusted beyond repair. I think the intermediate tub will be a better choice for me anyway, as this way I can do a saginaw or herm steering conversion easier, will have hanging pedals for the brakes and hydraulic clutch conversion, and will have a better heater than the 71 came with. I also plan on putting 11" drums on the rear, and one of the intermediates has a 30 front i will be swapping in, re-gearing, and converting to discs. Lots of work to do, but we have long winters here and it will give me something to do.
