1992 Willys

No, it's not a mistake - 1992 retro Willys:

Been lurking here for a while but it's time to post.

Had my first Jeep [1968 Kaizer cj5] 33 years ago.
Moved to Harley-Davidson zone [have fxdl 1995 for the last 15 years].



For 5-6 years looking after good Willys wagon/panel and 2 years ago 2 years ago I purchased All-Storm Jeep having in mind to use it some day as a donor to make full upgrade to Wagon or Panel [the wheel base is only 2cm' shorter] .
The jeep is 1992 Jeep YJL made in Israel as All Storm. It became my winter/mooving the kids daily drive.



Since I have it I'm keep thinking: instead of buying Willys, work on it for some years, [spent all that money…], why not to make a 'Retro All-Storm Willys'?

I started with Willys wagon hood, grill and fenders and I'm in the process of making out of them a fiberglass molds.

My goal is:
Stage 1: to take off the All Storm hood, lights, grill, bumper and fenders and to install the modified fiberglass parts.

Stage 2 [next year]: to duplicate/fabricate Wagon roof. Windows/side panels and to made fiber top.

What do you think?
Did any of you sow something like that?

Scrambled Willys

Looks from the back like one of the Alaskan Postal Jeeps/Scramblers

You are right.
The guys at Automotive Industries Ltd http://www.ail.co.il/Index.asp got the new 1991-1992 Yj and made it to fit the I.D.F needs - longer, stronger and with top.
my best guess is thay took CJ8 frame+ CJ10 grill and haed lights + postal top and modified CJ hood, put all in big food processor with the new YJ parts - and you can see the outcome

Actually the Storm1 is a wonderfull JEEP but most of the people just put Wrengler YJ hood and grill, shorten it and take off the top:

Well, you are right - if i was in U.S.A.
But living in Israel - most of the Jeep boys/girls know the Storm, dont like it as it is and driming on the "American Wrengler"...
