: sounds like you are on the right track and commited to keeping the Jeep. If you are able to do an objective analysis of the mechanical components (engine, brakes,clutch, etc) then you will have enough info to start from, if not have a old time mechanic do it for you. once you know what, if anything, you will need to invest into keeping it running properly, you can decide on the body. arresting the rust and giving it a paint job sounds like all you will need to do if you are headed back into the woods with your son and you want it to look better on the street. just keep in mind that some day you may want to teach your grandson how to drive it, and you want to make sure it is still there. have fun!
