If you have been following along with our installments, you'll know that the Colonel is a '51 CJ-3A, powered by a vintage flathead, sporting Bilstein shocks and Deaver springs. There is hardly any rust, and the body is straight, although the paint isn't perfect, it sure looks nice and rates probably 7/10. The old Jeep has a rear seat and YJ seatbelts. We have added a Tuffy center console, Advanced Adapters Saturn Overdrive, tach and Line-X to the cargo area. The stock diffs have been stuffed with lockers front and rear, and the brakes are 11-in units all the way around with custom Stockton wheels wearing 30-inch BFG M/Ts. While in my possession, the Willys has enjoyed wheeling from California to Moab.
This is the rare chance to own a vintage Flat Fender and a piece of Four Wheeler history. I thought I would offer it up to our Four Wheeler readers first, but it will probably be up on eBay by July. Serious inquiries only can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
