Default 52 Willys M38 38" swampers**GONE**

Im feeling this out so here goes. Im thinking about selling the ole willys. Heres a description.
Engine: 85 buick grand national engine with 9.75:1 pistions.
oiling tricks include drilled timing cover and crossover tube in rear of engine. #1 cam bearing in rear cambearing journal for metering of oil.
Brand new crane cam
Engine has 20 miles on it tops
Holley 4bbl intake and Holley 390cfm carb
Hei ignition.

TRANS: T176 from 82 CJ7
CLUTCH: Flywheel is a buick flywheel drilled professionally to accept chevy 10.5" pressure plate
Pressure plate will have to be matched up, i dont know the application. Clutch disc is chevy 11/8" 10 spline
throw out bearing is from a 88 mustang gt
standard mustang pilot bearing
TRANSFER CASE: Dana 300 from 82 CJ7
BODY AND FRAME: 52 Willys M38
FRONT AXLE: Scout dana 44 shortened on the long side(width is that of a wide track CJ)
chromoly inner axle shafts and outer passenger side shaft.
456 gear with mini spool
knuckles are 86 CJ
Rotors are 79 f150
calipers 71 chevy blazer
pads 71 chevy blazer
hubs early bronco(all steel inners, very heavy duty never ever broke one)
REAR AXLE: 86 CJ7 Dana 44
456 gear with mini spool
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: Complete from 82 CJ7 with chevy 151 engine. GM electrical system.
EXHAUST: Headers from a buick regal. All stainless 409 with dynomax turbo tubes. custom fit system.
STEERING:GM power steering conversion with 4 bolt camaro steering box. (needs a new p.s. pump reservoir this one leaks where it was modified the proper bolt in one is available)
Tilt steering wheel from 82 CJ7
TIRES: 38x12.50-15 swamper TSL. One of em in the back rubbed the fender on full cross up and chewed it up a bit.Tire is still good but i would use it as a spare and get a replacement.
Misc: Full cage tied into the frame with the nerf bars(removable cage)
4 point Rjs harnesses
New Buschart chain control clutch linkage advance adapters
8000lb Milemarker winch
Im sure there is much more that i dont remember. This is an ultra reliable rig, and is impressive on the trail. Needs a little bit of work but basically can be wheeled the way it is.

THINGS I WOULD DO: finish cutting the fenders in the rear
finish re installing cage (just put new floors and body mounts needs a couple of holes drilled and a couple spacers.)
get new power steering reservoir
put the old springs back on to get the front back up (springs are included)
Replace the clutch (its been awhile since ive done it, it doesnt slip but hasnt been changed in a number of years.

$3500 or best offer. Located in Dundee.

I'ld get this in a heartbeat if I could convince the "other half" we need another toy...... Just about exactly what I am looking for too. Maybe I missed it, but does it have a title?
