Default 66 Gladiator buildup

My project, a 1966 Jeep Gladiator Pickup, got it when I was 13, did the tear down, just now getting around to finishing her. She has a 327 Vigilante V8, Turbo 400, Dana 44's F&R with 373 gearing. I'm hoping she'll be done my Jan08, or at the very latest in time for Snowblind!



the body is pushed back so we could get to the engine.

Rolling chassis

A possible wheel and tire combo, old set of Ansens my dad had sitting around and 33" Goodyears

She's gettin her first few coats of color.

My dad aka my mentor, layin down some of the paint, Without him I donno where I'd be, both with the Jeep and in Life.


Not to bad for a backyard job.
