Seats are from a 68 Firebird. And the diamond plate covers a lot of ugly. I've had this thing since 1989 and it's been an ongoing project ever since.
Now, a little foreshadowing...Here it is in the Summer of 2015, up in the Bighorns. This was two weeks after the first time it drove under its own diesel ...

There are lots of leaks on it so may need a gasket job also. What is the highest I should go at a auction without paying more then whats it worth ?? Thanks
Has anyone ever seen a combination like this? We are planning on selling it and are wondering how effective it could be considering how light the Jeep is.
I did not want to bend the column top so I stopped. Any thoughts on what to do??
