The Draggin Wagon build

I know there is going to be a lot of hate in here for this, but too bad.

Its time for a new project. Hopefully this one wont take near the time, or monies, to complete. So far I have $0 into it.

I've never dropped anything so this will be a new experience.

The plans:
'59 willys wagon. c-notched frame to get it on the ground
Body: FREE. stock for now. Chop-top down the road. Have some extensive rust repair to button up first.
front axle: unknown at this point. Searching for something cheap/free that will work
front suspension: unknown at this point. Whatever I come up with to work with whatever axle I find.

rear axle: something fullwidth taht i can get cheap/free.
rear suspension: outboard, raised hanger, leafs

engine/trans: '00 ranger 3.0 ( I know I know… lame in a hotrod. I don’t care. I have it. It was FREE. And will net 20+ MPG)

tires: Currently have a set of wore 32’s free.

timeframe: eventually it'll be done.
budget: under $4k

and the beginning. pulled the wagon body off on sat.:

There is a '51 on the local craigslist. So much want! But too many projects already and not enough time/money.

Once I get done with my cj2, I plan on building a 2wd wagon. My father n law has a wrecking yard, so a lot of my build choices are made by what is available at the time of the build, too.

I love the look of the wagons.

looks like a good start. i have almost the same goals with mine. you might not want the full width rear though, it'll be too wide in my opinion. mine is a '49 and sits on a 2wd ranger frame. the rear is almost perfect if anyting it's 2'' to narrow for the wheels i have now. you may check out oldwillysforum.com for some inspiration. looking foreward to seeing yours come together.

NICE!

I am REALLY hoping to get the tires outside the body. i'm just not feeling the tucked into the fender look. did a bunch of measuring last night and i dont know how its going to be possible though. i need a stupid wide rear end to make it happen. might end up hacking the fenderwells and re-working them so that the tire can be partially in the tub.

what year ranger chassis are you working with? i was thinking last night that it might be easier to work with the ranger chassis i have.

mine is on a mid 80's frame, it was a regular cab truck i think. i actually traded the wagon for some work and the guy put it on this frame then flaked on the work so i got it back. the rearend was moved foreward probably 10-15" and the motor moved back about 8". the only place it doesn't fit perfect is under the front seats the frame comes up so the lower floor(inside the under seat tool box) had to be cut to clear. no big deal really. mine has a 2.3 ford 4 banger that i'm told was built be a guy who raced 4 banger dirttrack cars. it has a turbo head on it so i'll go to a turbo later. supposedly it was a really strong runner and pretty powerful. has a mustang T5 and the ranger 8.8 rear.

to get your rear tires outside the body i'd think you'd have to really modify the fender opening and still end up with the tire under a little. if you really want to chop it up you could narrow the body up a bit and chop the roof to make it really wild

i think i have the axe situation figured out.

early 70's ford vans have a wide 9" with an offset pumpkin. i have one in the weeds, just need to find another one. then i can take the two long side shafts center the pumpkin, retube the long side and come out around 71" WMS. that should be JUST enough to not have to hack into the body withthe 32's

yes i am.

brought the donor truck home sunday. its a '00 ranger that had been rolled hard on the freeway. nothing but body damage though (that i can see so far). i drove it the 5 miles miles home.

thing runs great, couldnt resist taking it out for a few sweet jumps while the power was out and we were bored. im pretty damn impressed how well the thing lands. almost a shame to cut it up. almost.
