    JB's ride is an exceptional exception to the rule. He has put a lot of time and effort into making his wagon a perfect all-around rig.

    Along with the wood dowel, the CAD, (cardboard aided design) works fantastic for holding brake rods in place and sheet metal design.

    A hydroboost makes a world of difference for engines that don't produce enough vacuum for traditional braking systems. A guy who built a radical street Camaro with a nice thumpy cam couldn't figure...

    The trailer is a little much for the Heep, and not a trailer brake connection and too many hills through town, not a good idea. Too many young children walking the route in front of us, so it will...

    Bmorgil is correct in his observation. You can use the CJ3 frame for the 2A without any issue. The motor mounts will match up with your 2A engine.

    Our 2A had a snowplow mounted, and over time it...

    P.S., I never heard another word from the guy on the door handles or the center divider for the windshield.

    As optimistic as I can be to say that everything can be fixed with enough time and money..... This would a tough project to take on. Not too much there to work with.

    It can go either way. My '63 was all plastic and rubber coated wire, even on items up under the dash where nobody had ventured since the factory. There was no sign of cloth covered wire anywhere. ...

    Good deal on the windshield frame. Most wouldn't know the difference on the 2A frame and the MB/GPW frames, so it will do nicely until you find the right one for your build.

    That is definitely good news there. It doesn't happen often that the original engine has been retained, with the serial number intact.

    John,

    I used to live in Big Lake, MN. I had fairly great luck with the NAPA in Buffalo MN. It would be worth a call to see if they are still doing customer work, (it's been 18 years since I've...
