1968 wagoneer in South Atlanta

What's up, everyone. My name is Josh, I live on the south side of Atlanta and I just picked up an all original 1968 jeep wagoneer with 36,077 miles on it. It has a 232 inline 6 with three on the tree manual trans. I only drove it 8 miles from where I bought it to my friend's house until i can finish building my garage to tackle the jeep.

I owned a 76 Cherokee chief about 15 years ago. It was Chevy powered and rode like a dream.

The plan is to put the jeep body on a trailblazer ss chassis. There's a lot of measuring to do before I do anything, but i know all of the dimensions are close.

Apparently my pictures are too big to post.

First off, Welcome! That sounds like an interesting project.

Second, you need to upload your pictures to a host site (imgur, flikr, ect...but, dont use PhotoBucket as it no longer works) then embed them in your thread in order to post pictures here.

Well, since the 68 wagoneer build is going to take a while, i decided to buy a 77 Cherokee chief to drive while I work on the 68.

The 77 Cherokee chief is all stock with 135,000 miles on it. It's a 360/turbo 400 quadra-trac. The short term goal is to get it road worthy (fuel pump went out and the tires are from 2007) with the intention of a 6 inch lift (rustysoffroad) and a 6.0 ls that is currently in a 2001 sierra c3 i own.

In my opinion, if the 1968 Wagoneer has only 36.000 miles on it and is in a decent shape, keep it original.

You will invest a lot of time in a project like that, but I doubt that in the end the resale value will be much higher.

You can host your pictures somewhere else and embed or link them here... then we can give you our unwanted opinions on whether or not you should proceed.
