    Seems to me that this car has seen alot of neglect in it's life,... will hopefully restored using OEM parts and back on the road shortly.

    Storm is right. This was a neglected jeep but a daily driver in this condition.

    It had Nissan 2200 diesel engine which was not the part of deal. Rear axle is Pajero, front is not in use, no 4wd. Original rear axle provided with jeep.

    Body and fittings are all original though in poor condition.

    @ahsanmq
    Not that much 'becharri', it is a real tough job to dis-mantle and restore a 50 years old Willys.

    @nascar
    Yes it is Lahore registered.

    @Aridsoul
    Your price estimate is near to what I paid for it.

    @saad_q .

    Please do not put a diesel engine in this vehicle.
    Try to rebuild the original Engine, if possible.
    This is an excellent piece of Machinery.
    Obstacles are those frightful things you see when u take your eyes off your goal.

    Jeeps never get old. Rust never been a problem, U can rebuild the body tubs and all Jeep Parts & Accessories R easily available.

    Saad-q, U have found the lost treasure & try to re-build this baby as a great off-roader in a reasonable budget.

    I can C U have started it very well and wish U good luck for UR Jeep Project.

    Will U be putting the same Nissan Power Plant if U R looking for other options then go for 2L-TE or 3C-T.

    What about transmission, suspension and axles? I will advise U to go for Rocky's 5-speed gearbox. Also Rocky’s transfer case as it has an offset rear output shaft like the Willy's original, you can keep the stock axles.

    Any ways U may have UR own plan but if U need any help then do contact me.
