Default uncommon u-pull-it yard find

I try and get over to the Dorr LKQ every other week or so to see what they have. Usually they have alot of makes/models between the years of 80-00. But this weekend they had a couple of oldies.

Thsi was a 63? Jeep with a ford Small Block and had a twin stick tcase





And this 66 Scout, had a twin stick in it to (having trouble with pics)


Their was also probably a dozen or more XJ's including a couple 97+ mostly complete......but not one damn dodge full size 4x4 (wanted to get a drive slug for the hub to keep as a spare in my truck) They also usually have a ton of FS Broncos and they only had one (first Bronco i had seen with a 300 in it). They had 2 36x14.50 15 ground hawgs that were decent mounted on rims (15x8 5x5.5 wagons), i almost bought those put didn't have the extra $70 they wanted for them

Dana 18 transfer cases of that era generally were twin-sticked.

Not much, looks like they took the steering wheel off. Here is a picture of the two scouts I had, and sold to the same person on the west side. I am curious if the other scout is also there.

I only asked because I googled for directions and all that came up was Dorr Auto Salvage. LKQ only brought up yards in Holland, GR and Kzoo.

Thanks for the directions though. :miff:
