Vehicle Story: My Wampum Willys- bought from guy in Utah that had purchased it off an Indian Reservation in New Mexico- It was being used as a Fish and Game vehicle, and the first owner seems to have loved angle iron, as it’s used to fix everything! Shackles, hitch mount, even some cross bracing. The Wagon is 90% stock, with the PO (not sure if it was the New Mexico or Utah owner) implanting a well-worn Chevy 350 motor- Since I purchased it, I’ve replaced the fuel system and electrical on the 350, and sold the PTO winch and bumper for a new apron and blade bumper. Trying to stop the rust and remove the rot. I hope to make it a daily driver one day. Currently it runs great, even if the 10-gallon gas tank can only take me to the store and back. Just got it in primer and plan to get color on it within the next year. Near future fixes include a new Total Cost Involved Universal Pedal assembly (the hack-job clutch and brake have to go!) and a Painless 18 circuit electrical kit. I dream of an NV-4500, Atlas II transfer case and Dana 60 axles…..
