Excellent work being done there, Fazal! Do keep us posted on the progress.
(OT: interesting to see 'Toledo, Ohio' mentioned on the Willys. I used to visit the city very often,since my University was just 25 miles from Toledo).

Somewhere else on this board I think I've seen a build-up thread for that strange looking Willys in the back. It's actually a HAND BUILT Willys MA, only few original known to exist.

Quality is not a question, these men know what they're doing.

That is a 1500 cc Ambassador petrol engine. Definitely not Isuzu.

Right on. The airfilter is a bit noisy on this engine though. Old memories!
