View Full Version : New project...62 willies

Customer dropped this off friday. The students and I are going to do quite a bit of stuff to this one. Wish he would sell it.

So, all I know is that it's a 1962. What would this fall under as far as numbers? Like CJ3B or whatever.

You can see more of it in my gallery HERE (http://www.glfwda.org/forums/index.php?act=module&module=gallery&cmd=user&user=180&op=view_album&album=27)

That is cool Tim. :bigemo_harabe_net-64: What kind of stuff are you guys going to do to it? I think that is a cj-5. The cj3b had flat fenders.

Like Joe said, it is a 5

Looks to be in really nice shape considering it lives in MI.

Do you need some D44 axles for it? It would suck putting money into that old D27 front.

Well, looks like we're going to be rebuilding the engine...2 and 3 hav only 52psi for compresion. Might be a head gasket but the owner wants it rebuilt. Body mounts are blocks of wood and pieces of tire so it'll get new mounts. Polly new springs and a bit of wireing. I knew it wasn't a 3b I just wasn't sure if you called it a 5 for that year.

I think he wants to keep it sorta stock so no 44's Pat. :P

I am still trying to get him to sell it to me :D It is in REAL good shape. It has no rust holes at all...anywhere on it.

you answered one of my questions...what front axle...d27 huh...the front lockouts are cool as heck. Large easy to turn knob. Only problem I can see with them is that with those tires on it, they stick out farther than the rims so damage on rocks would be a for sure thing.

The frame is solid...no problems there.

I dunno...haven't looked. Would that be a good or a bad thing? I don't know much about these old things.
