Did want it, wanted one since I was 16. And the catch is, I do maintenance around his farm, fix his trucks and stuff and I get the Jeep and all associated parts.

If you intend to keep this for any length of time and intend on wheeling it any place other than the grocery store...

You will see, you'll see.

yeah it will defiantly cost money here and their. even if you have a lot of parts. all the little this will add up quick. i got recites upwards to 700 in just little odds and ends in to my last mud truck i built. but what is all their looks to be in good shape. i don't no a lot about jeeps but my friend and his older brother are real big into them and i have learned a bit with then we we started building his. i dont no how long it has been sitting like that but i would deinetly check the frame tap on the frame with ball hammer and see if theirs any soft spot. the thing with jeeps is thier frame is fully box so it likes to hold moister and likes to rust so youll need to path all the spots first befor you start building. here a few pics of my frien jeep we found a few soft spots and patched them all up.

Drivetrain, fuel delivery system, wiring harness doesn't appear to be there. no seats. I wonder if there is a cluster in it?

Seems like fenders are the least of your worries.

You will have a sense of pride when it is finished though.
