Thank you,

Since it is an original 52 Willys, not common these days and a 3rd generation family heirloom...just do not try and get it fixed by any mechanic.

Once if it loses its originality...then it is virginity lost!

If possible try and get it to Hyderabad by truck and get the required jobs done here. I will assist you with the best mechanic, body and paint guys.
It all depends how much you intend to spend on her.

Its your call. It has the potential to turn out as one of the best in its class if it is original.

I am assuming by the missing parts that it has not seen the road for atleast ten years, if so..it is not as simple as starting the engine and running it even if you can, unless a comprehensive mechanical job is done on your Jeep, this is what most Jeepers/ restorers would advise.

BTW, Machlipatnam (Machli bunder) means a lot to my family.
