1963 Willy's Jeep Tuxedo Park
Chrome steps too...
A diesel Tux??? Chrome tail-gate chains as well.
I keep looking but why do you say it’s a diesel? I like the gloves used as a cowl seal
EDIT: I see it now, down in fuel type
Tux chrome bumpers took a beating didn’t they? My front bumper is good but my rear (driver side) is slightly bent. It just seems most Tuxedos I see have mangled bumpers. I like the look of this one! Would that have been Presidential Red, Cap’n?
Indian ceramic, I think.
I doubt it is a diesel....was there ever a Tuxedo Park with the diesel engine? That would definitely qualify as rare...
Doug is correct. The steering wheel is painted stock too...
I didn't see diesel. That needs to be checked out...
can't decide if it looked better with the green rims or white
but those seats got to GO
yea I would like to seen engine compartment too
Which side of the motor does the exhaust come off the perkins? The exhaust looks like a typical F-134 I only see one choke cable though I was pretty sure the diesel had a different looking fuel shut off valve.
I don't think they ever put a Perkins in a Tux from the factory. This has a late '66-up hood (and 1 front fender) and yes, that is Indian Ceramic (kind of a salmon pink). The white grill is correct, as well as the chrome speedo ring, side steps, and the rest of the Tux trim. This looks like original (faded) paint from the correct 4 WD stencil on the tailgate.The Hall 701's look nice. This even has footman loops for the top instead of snaps.
Pretty much a time capsule!
This looks like a great resto candidate for someone who wants a stock Tux
Yes it could be..
Bet something fell on the front...
Diesel is a typo. No stop cable, glow plug button or diesel data plate. If I'm not mistaken, these were all above and to the the left of the steering column.
I got an email back from the seller...
Still needs to be saved...
Interesting that it not three on a tree. Doesn't have the correct dash for it so it must have come with a floor shifter...
I don't have lots of data points on the MKlll Tuxes, but there were some variations. It seems the early production run had the cane shift, chrome side steps, and no badges on the hood. The later ones (close to the MK lV version) had the column shift, black painted steps, and MKlll hood badges. They were all Indian Ceramic/white grill, and have the painted steering wheel. They were just part of the regular production run as far as serial numbers go, so no real records on them.
I'm actually going out to look at (and likely buy) this tomorrow. Been talking to the seller since the weekend. Had planned to go up Saturday but had some car trouble
Assuming I get this I'm likely going to replace the seats. Anyone know where I can source the original split bench?
Awesome! Keep us posted
