Cool So new to posting here, 63 J3500 , 62 Wagoneer

Hey guys I just felt like introducing myself, my names Aaron and I'm 23 and have I think ended up starting to collect these fsjs , I do not know a whole lot about mechanics but started working on this 63 J3500 from what I could tell it has a 327 amc and runs and drives fairly well with 60k original miles and being in the family for a good while.
https://flic.kr/p/2nuZBjY
Then after I decided that is running enough to mob around the ranch I came across this.... close to my area.
https://flic.kr/p/2nuZyHk
Lol let's just say I got it delivered for a fair price. Any info or just things to know would be helpful will be making a build post eventually, both the wag and glad have 327 amcs from what I can tell.
Also do the wagoneers usually have willys tags? I havn't decoded that vin yet.
Here are a couple more photos of both of them I belive the wagoneer us a 62? Was a manual and swapped to auto. Sorry for the links couldn't find a way to actually get the host website to url to this lol.

SUPER cool finds! Wow! THe rims on your Wago look like Golden Eagle rims. The finish on your Glad is PERFECT!! What a cool truck! i really like the mirrors you put on there, too. The front bumper on the wago looks like its ready to run some zombies over!

What did you do with the original rims/tires that were on the Glad? Did you sell/trash/give away/or hold on to them?

Let's see if I can get the pics to show up. Make sure your Flickr account allows anyone to see them.

They look pretty cool--great to see more Kaiser Jeeps around

Interesting that you're leaning towards the first year on them; the 327 didn't come out until '65...(not trying to be rude or question your knowledge--they're Jeeps so weird stuff happens to them, and I'm just going off what the stuff I've read indicates).

I say together, as I have an '84 FSJ here, and an '81 CJ5, so bouncing between separate sites to keep up with both.

Yours are both FSJ, but really up to you

Just the introduction page mostly to say Hello, and then "see me on build thread" for all the goopy details.

Again, welcome

Nice to see the next generation keeping these rigs alive and going! There's alot of knowledge here for the old kaiser-era trucks and wagons. Don't forget to check out the tech library and the archive section of the forums.

Here's a link from here for some 327 info: http://www.ifsja.org/tech/motors/engcode327.html
Looks like '65 was the first year, but no telling if an engine swap occurred during that 62's life, although you did say it was in the family for awhile.

Anyway, working on old cars is an adventure..... working on old jeeps can be an epic adventure! Never assume anything, and never assume that what is there is what is /was supposed to be there.

Have fun - and drive them!!!

WHAT?! You're telling me that the open knuckle D44, 6x5.5 rims, diff fluid temp sending unit, Pertronix, Edelbrock 1406, and mid '70s Buick 350 (that's no longer in it) weren't there from the factory? And the Bosch gauges under the dash? You must be kidding

He's not kidding though: Jeeps have weird stuff done to them; everyone started with the same thing, but being Jeeps, they have been adapted to a) what the owner was doing with it and b) their budget And yes drive them...no point in owning something you're never gonna use.
