Looks like you have channelled the body over the frame on the wagon above? Real hotrod stuff and I like it is looks way better and be more stable than the blue pickup up which looks scary that high. I know which one I rather be in on a side slope.
Got any pictures on the inside with the channelling?

Thanks Gojeep, There is no firewall or floor boards installed yet, I should have the engine and tranny back in this week and then I can work on the floor pans, with the rear Tcase clocked there will be nothing hanging below the fraim rails but drive shafts.

Currently have the body off of my 57 Willys Wagon. putting in a chevy 4.3, sm465 to a 205 with a ford 9" and a waggy 44 front. 4.10 gears, posi in front and mini spool in rear with 32x7.50 tires. running RE YJ 2.5" lift sua in front and a mix of GMC Jimmy and 1/2 ton ford van springs in the rear soa. everything is stock width because i'm keeping it under the fenders. it works out to be roughly a 4" lift which looks sweet and it's still really flexy

I just learned about this thread. Here's the specs on my '59 Pick-up as it sits right now:

283 ('63 Vette donor) with TPI from a '91 Z-28
SM-420
Dana-18/20 hybrid
Ford 9-inch front and rear (4.86:1) Detroit in the rear and TruTrac in the front

Future projects include doing away with the front leaf springs in favor of an early Bronco 3-link (I'll more than likely wrist the front axle at that time as well), installing the Double-Torque gear splitter/overdrive (basically an older, cast-iron case version of the A/A Ranger), and an Atlas 3.0...

This is my new Willys wagon.....paid for today. Should be on its way from Cali to my home in Delaware some time next week (I hope....auto transport is crazy).

The truck is basically a shell with seats inside, and the paint job is ok, but was a quickie.....lots of red paint overspray, they painted the window rubber, paint on the radiator, etc. It has a very good running but unkown V-6 in it with a 4 spd manual trans......no transfer case or front driveshaft. Still I figure for what I paid its a good start.

Yes, it is a wagon.....the windows have been filled in.

I'm HOPING to take the body and mount it on a K-5 blazer drivetrain....complete. Following are some of the specifics from someone who managed to do just that with their wagon......mounting it on a '73 Blazer without having to move the engine or any mounting points.

All of his driveline components are in the factory Blazer positions.......he indicated it was a tight squeeze with the radiator, and he had to use an electric fan and modify the headlight housings, but otherwise it fit.

Blazer pedal brackets were bolted to the Willys firewall. Steering column was shortened between the firewall and steering box. Then he cut the frame off in front of the front spring hangers and the overhang off the rear. He just used the original Blazer wiring too.

I know there are people on this forum that have done similar swaps......and some have indicated they had to move the motor back.....or other adjustments. I'd really like to hear anyones specifics on this K-5 / wagon chassis swap.

I've also included a pic of the other guys wagon.....its the one in primer. Its for sale at an asking price of $4500 if anyone is interested in Coalville Utah

Well for now just a small block chevy with Howell TBI, 350 tranny mated to a 205 t-case with 5:88 gears. I have chevy springs up front and gonna run TJ coils in back with a 1 link grader ball setup. 39.5's on it now for mock up but prolly gonna run at least 42's or 44 boggers , still need to find a D60 for the front. Full cage, I squeezed the ass together about 6" and chopped the winsheild frame 5" , wheelbase is at 108 for now, may go more. Whats left of the frame has been boxed and the rest is 2" DOM.

I am kinda skeptical when it comes to that setup for your rear. But that means you are going to have to prove me wrong. I am thinking that their is going to be an extreme amount of load in so many directions with that one anchor point. But hell look at a hitch on a trailer.


I will be watching to see how it works when it is all said and done.

I have seen these set ups work really well, its pretty common to see them in the south you know with us poor hillbilly folk and all. We make do with what we have. Set up correctly these things flex like crazy. And I have seen the trailer hitch set up on rigs also. Im kinda scared of that set up myself.
