Wanda is no more

I recently traded my little blue Levi Edition Renegade 1976 CJ-7 (Wanda). She was a stock CJ7 with the 304 and T-150 transmission along with a Dana 20 transfer case. She ran and drove quite well and didn't have 'too' much rust.

I ended up trading her for two Willys Wagons. An almost completely stock 1949 Wagon (below) which needed an engine; and a 1961 Wagon (bottom right) which was put on a 1975 (or so) Power Wagon frame (with all its drive train) but has a few things that need to be worked out before it will be a reliable driver.

Honestly, I still haven't decided if this was a good trade or not. I do plan on selling the '49 regardless at this point. I definitely don't need as many projects as I currently have.

As for the '61.... I'll play that one by ear. Either way, if I keep it or not, I can say I've owned a Willys (or two).
