Got this gem for a reasonable price. It was running when I loaded it on the trailer. I got a lof of work to do on it. First is to rebuild the motor. It knocks under load. I got the front end tore down. And will be pulling the motor soon. Will upload pictures as I can get computer access.
  

I got a 1950 CJ3A work in progress.  had a 1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport with 6" lift Running 33"s. Locked and Armored up.

Here what i have done so far. The wiring is complete disaster. Will have to order a complete wiring harness for it. Will need new guages and lots and lots of body work. The frame has lots of surface rust but no holes. Its in good shape. It will take lots of time since i dont have the income to do this quickly. Got to save up for even the small stuff. But in the end I will be happy that I restored a CJ3A to call mine.

Looks like a good jump into the tear down.  The battery tray sure comes in handy at this stage.  A built in tool shelf. Smiley

I got the motor tore out. It's gona be a big expense or over haul
so it be a while before I can get it running again. One the good note. The clutch was recently replaced. It's still fresh.

Took the pan off. I'm not sure what the person was thinking. I found out why my motor was knocking. Spun rod bearing. Look like they used 2 bearings stacked together. And they pistons been bored .60 over aready. I'm setting here debating on trying to find another block that's had not been bored over.
