Default ‘52 Willys Pick Up

What do you do when you’re hauling calves home and your bride sees a old truck beside the road and says “I want that”???
We turned around and bought this.

I guess her plans are to strip it to the frame and start over with it. She says she wants the original looks but all modern goodies and comforts.

Probably get rid of the four wheel drive slow stuff and install V-8, auto,and 9"rear end on new suspension with coil overs.

I'm still gimping around after getting my new hip for Christmas so I won't be rushing into any thing for a couple more months. I told her when she gets the seat out of it and gets rid of all the critter droppings and sanitized we can start stripping it down.

I think it might be fun building it with() her if she doesn't run out of money.

Default Air ride

Instead of coil over go with air ride, you get a good ride yet pump them up and you can haul the hay.
