Just picked this up the other day for a couple hundy. Buildup starts as soon as I finish the 4.0L & 5-speed swap into my '68 Jeep pickup.

I'll drive it with the stock 4-banger while I build the rest of the Jeep. Putting on a CJ front clip, dash, etc and then lifting it a little for 37s or 39s, 1-ton axles, and so on. Once it's done I'll toss in a 550hp engine, auto tranny, and an Atlas t-case. Should scoot up a dune pretty good or hit a rocky trail with no drama.

Dummy, must be plenty of them out your way. Around here, you'd pay alot more than that for something with half the body/frame rotten away.
Just unloaded one similar with hardtop and harddoors.....

I am an old truck nut too, I can't get enough of them. Here is a photo of the current project 56 Chevy 3100 which is nearly complete (Are they really ever done, I think not!!!). I am getting ready to start a 47 Chevy Truck.
