Sounds like the hunt will be on for a cj and a c6!

Oh no - don't do it. Nothing causes you to hate Cougars more than working on a cj and C6. Great for developing hernias, new skills in applying bandaids and exciting new ways to use universal joints on your socket set

Don't forget about it being a great way to figure out how to spend more money on parts you had no idea you needed!

Well; I got the beast home today, After I took this cell phone picture I put it up on Jack stands and checked the underside out. I found I had missed the passengers quarter has been replaced. I is a fairly good job. I also found it does not have the "N" case center section. But it looks like it had a set of 4.11s with a locker. I then removed the seats, I had thought they had been recovered. But they are in fact Mustang seats. The back seat still has a paper tag on it stating the manufactures name and "Mustang" on it.
I got the carpet out, No Build sheet. The carpet has been replaced and all the sound deadner is gone. It has some surface rust on the floors, I will clean that up and seal it. It has a drive shaft loop and lake wood traction bars. I also found a big electric fuel pump by the tank. I had thought it did not have a California tank, but it does. With some big pile of sealer of some sort over the location where the plastic vapor return mounted. I plan to get rid of this tank before I get it running any way. I don't know why I didn't notice the XR-7 instruments when I was looking at the car, so who knows what the wiring looks like. I do have a complete 70 standard harness here.
I have been getting some information of CJ power train parts that will work here. I may have a Cast Iron tail shaft C-6 lined up. Other items I don't have as good of a feel on yet.
But this will only get a good cleaning up and then it will be placed on the list of projects that I need to get done. I have to get the 71 Blue Up-beat cloth interior car put back together. It is close, I hope to get the power train bolted in this month. But I also have a kitchen project coming together too. That should have been done a week or so ago, but the contractor is not ready with the new counters.

Glad you got it home OK. Hope you didn't have too much trouble getting it out of that backyard.

Great update, glad you got it in the garage and had a chance to really check it out more. Too bad about the build sheet, but you never know - there might be one hiding in there somewhere!

I have found a couple stapled to the back side of door panels. So until any possible hiding place has been searched...

That was done before we got there. His dad did pull it out on to the street for us.

Today I found a 9M13 date 428 Police interceptor. It came wrapped in a nice 72 f250...
