Haven't posted for a while... Currently fixing up my (new to me) 80 CJ5. Drive train and steering are (now) in good (read: safe) order. Need to do body work (remove cancer, sheet metal welding, etc.). But, enough about that. Retired friend down the street called me up, seems a neighbor of ours is selling an older jeep and the friend wants us to possibly buy it together. Currently the seller is out of town, have no idea as to asking price. The friend thinks we could pick it for a song and, (with my so-called experience, yea, right ;-}) fix it up and, maybe, sell for a proft. (Notice all the qualifiers). Took a look at it after work Friday...looks pretty darn good. Appearance 1) It is a two seater, split bench seat with the spare tire mounted on the right side of the tub. Engine is a 4 cylinder. 2) The shackles are not the two piece variety, but, are what appears to be L (or C) shape round stock with greasable zerk (?) fittings. Looks original. 3) The front springs seems to be a factory spring reversal in that the main eye is in front, the "hangar" is in the rear. The rear springs appear to be a conventional set-up (Hangar to the rear, main eye to the front). 4) The tail gate has "Willys" embossed in it. It has "through the floor" pedals (as apposed to my '80 hanging on the fire wall), a "twin stick" transfer case, and the fuel tank filler is on the drivers side with what appears to be an underseat tank. No rear seat. Overall the body appears smaller than my '80. 5) Tub looks like the original paint...no evidence of rust through, rest looks solid. Could this be some kind of former postal jeep...especially with the spring hangars and the "spring reversal" in the front? Any clues as to a year/other tell-tale signs to look for? Thoughts, comments, facts...possibly some suggestions as to either value or somewhere to look (Jeep Traders?) Thought it would be of some interest.
