    this one has potential I think...I kind of like the hard cab with no door and no back (but not the small windows).
    1955 Willys Jeep Cj5

    even looks like Dan Stew's color preference

    Yeh James, that one is worth a look. Between the engine and tranny, its a good combo and then the metal looks nice. Not much to do on that one. PTO and winch, nice seats, looks like an even fire with HEI. I'd take a look and who knows, maybe 3500 or less, be a great deal. Go get it. There is always something to do to em.

    If I were looking for one, I probably couldn't find one like this at this price...but alas, I am not looking - at least not for another ecj5. My focus is to spend my money and effort on making mine 'better' (or maybe just keeping it running). But if something different such as a lwb cj6/cj8 or willys wagon (or even the right FF) - then maybe. Its 5.5 hrs away from Denver in Custer SD - so its kind of nowhere. Maybe I should go get it and drag it east and sell it in rust country.

    Wish they would switch the battery and overflow jug, strange to end up with them where they are.

    That was the stock battery location for the 4-cyl jeeps. I'm actually surprised he was able to leave the batttery there after the v6 swap, but it appears to clear just fine.

    Exactly what I thought - but think I would switch them if it was up to me.

    Again the shipping cost would prohibit purchasing. This to me is a good buy. Nothing I would change, except maybe tires. I have a nice set of slotted rims waiting for a early 5.

    Made an offer based on shipping, but not holding out hope.

    Might just happen. Getting quotes. That M170 of mine, just might be going up for sale.
