Looks good, that was a very complete CJ2-a and not rusted out. That's a rare find!!!

Frame looks great.

What are you doing with the original drivetrain parts? I could use a good shape L-head if you are getting rid of it.

I contemplated the Toy drivetrain into a Flatty as kind of retirement rig, but just can't get myself to shame the Willys that bad......( it is a cool build though )

Looks like a cool project. I always thought a 22RE would be a nice engine for a flatty. Looking forward to seeing the buildup.
