Norm, I got a good chuckle from the "battery" string - thx!  (especially since I worked my way through high school by working in an auto parts house).  I also laughed out loud over the "cooking / mechanicing role reversal" comments!  Did you daughter-in-law ever adjust to the dyslexic christmas lists???

Reading this thread makes me want to spend a few weeks in Iowa helping Patty fix up her jeep.  I'm not sure how I'd explain that to Dr. Laureen though...

That's a great looking CJ5 - I hope that things turn out well.  Patty, if it doesn't and you decide to bail out, pls let me know. I've always been fond of CJ5's and Laureen and I will be bringing an empty trailer home from Phoenix at Thanksgiving....

Scott my guess is that a few weeks is the minimum it would take to get that old jeep running. :D

If you folks need a resting spot on the way back from Phoenix stop on in. Not sure the route you take but we're about 40 miles north of I-80 if you go that way.

Ya know.......what that thing needs is a 350 Chevy and and a juiced up 400 turbo tranny ;D ;D

No, the jeep won't be target practice, but we are considering a combine shoot, since no one will let us borrow their silo.  ::) Thinking about dragging a junker down into the field behind us when the corn comes out.   8)

Norm, thanks for the offer.  We'll probably come across on I-40, unless Patty throw's in the towel on the jeep!

Funny you should bring this thread back up to the top.   

 I have the jeep stored over at our old house in the garage. The two old guys never got it to run again, so I hired a crew to haul it home on a flat bed.  My cute little yellow jeep is nestled in there with the younger son's '67 Camaro and a few other toys that don't run.

My older son and his wife moved into the house last summer, and just happened to notice the garage was full.v :o   He really notices it when his cars are parked in front of the full garage . I told him it build character to scrape the ice & snow off his car every morning.  :)

I figure I will save Willy the Jeep for my grandson to tinker with. Maybe he will get it running someday... I would like nothing better than to see that yellow streak coming down my driveway...unless maybe I was sitting next to him riding shotgun.  8)   I can see it now, Granny & Grandson out cruising in the yellow Willy.

Wow, it's been a little while since this thread got bumped to the top.  :) I was never mechanically inclined nor took interest in it much. If it didn't run it got towed and maybe one way. :D ;)

Not being judgmental or anything here.....  ;)

My brother is a wannabe, but about as far as he gets is parking old cars and trucks in the yard once run by the folks and dreaming about getting them running or trying to get more than they are worth. Thus they are still sitting there.  ;D :D Must have favored grandmother's crowd, with all these old rusted out 1950's cars hidden by forest growth in the back of the lot. He also has a V8 Camaro, 1993 model, and gets all riled up at dealers that tell him it's worth about $7500 and depreciating. He never drives it in winter and hardly in the summer. Now if it were a 60's Coravette, that would be a different matter. But, who knows in 20 years, eh? ;)
Move'n on.

I got a 460/c6 in the garage that'd make Willy go goooood....   ;D

The grandson may not need to ride wheelies with his first ride...

Got me a 460 in the old F250.  Has an Eddlbrock carb, Eddlebrock heads, performance pistons and other goodies.  But it is still my trusty old woods truck.  You should see the look on the faces of the kids who pull up along side, as I am ambling down the road, and they try to blow me away at the stop sign.  It is funny!  :D

Thanks Sawguy, but I don't feel bad....I make a fool of myself all the time on here showing off my knowledge!  :D   By the way, I don't know what a C6 transmission is either.  ::)

I have been asked what is wrong with old Willy and why he won't run. Well I really have no clue whatsoever. I can't even tell you what the two old guys did to it except cash my check...

 I just keep hoping he will magically start up again one day and purr like a kitten. (and yes I do believe in fairy tails too! )

Since I started all this confusion...  A C6 is a 3spd. automatic used in full
size cars and trucks from the late 60's till the mid to late 80's. 
This particular one is highly modified for drag racing with a reverse
shift pattern, manual shifting and a trans brake for full throttle launches.

FYI, Trans Brake locks first and reverse together so you can go to full
throttle on the starting line and when the light changes, you take your
hand off the button switch and WHAM!!!! you launch at wide open. 

I dunno why the guy built this combo for a pickup.  I bought the complete
zero mile motor/trans for the price of the camshaft and valve covers on it. 
He was going through a divorce at the time and needed the money.     
I bought on a lark and I'm not sure what to do with it now.  If I could find
'68-'72 short box F100 I'd chuck it in there.  I'd tame down the trans and the
camshaft though.

Typical F250 gas mileage - 8mpg empty or loaded

Part of the reason my main truck is a diesel, gets 12-15mpg, and I make my own fuel!
