Cheap Rig Help

So,this is how it is........
The chances are real good my Green machine wont be fully ready by deadline...end 'o Feb. Seems the more i get done,the more cr*p I find to do before im satisfied. SEVERAL of us on this board have this problem



To my question:

I found myself a good 'temp-toy' but after actually walking up to it,it seems to be...well not what I expected.

This is what I could see from the road...
Old,well used,flat fender jeep
maby 31" mud tires
some lights & a 80s style el cheapo cage
some real bucket seats(also 70s or 80s style)

Then the quick walkaround found
Could be the front clip (not in the best shape) is the only thing Willys
the rest o the rig is mostly 'hand made',ill call it....ok,ugly
Its really what appears to be Bronco II or ranger under the skin.

I dont know ANYTHING about these Fords except how to spot the parts.....It was 5 spd & V6 with the lil boy axles


BTW-I could get this running machine for 3 or 4 Bills.....

I think it would be fun for at least a day But could I make it last that long?

Or you could just take that "3 or 4 bills" and put them into your rig.......don't by some POS and then end up not being able to get rid of it or tearing it all up or something.

Just send me the money so I can get the scout ready.

If by "3 or 4 Bills" you mean $3 or $4, then go for it, you could actually make a profit for scrap. But it doesnt sound like its worth much more than that.
