Hi there,

New first time Willys owner.

1962 (I think)
Willys Wagon
4x4
Ramsey PTO winch
Small block chevy powered

Planning to use around the house and ranch, want to be able to haul parts and supplies and drive through the pasture and woods.
Updating the suspension, brakes, electrical and servicing the engine, for the rest she is like she is (not too pretty)

Planning to set it up for flat towing so I can drive the suburban on the road to and from my hunting place.

Welcome!

Looks good from 30 ft you say? I have had many projects like that myself. I'm shooting for a 20/20 with my wagon...........

20 mph , 20 ft away looks good........closer you get and/or slower I go - the more you can see and the worse it gets!

I still have a ways to go , have to be able to go 20mph first!

Good Luck! :mrgreen:
