Is finding three rusty cylinder bores "progress"?   Arguably, since it led to sending the engine out for rebuild machining.  Bummer, it was a good running engine with very little cylinder wear.  Keeping it relatively stock.  Mild cam, nothing fancy.  Converting to studded Rockers Since Crappy Bridge Rockers Cost As Much As Doing It Right.   And No Idea Why My Phone Suddenly Decided To Cap Every Word.  Thats Annyoing  

Pro tip: make sure your air cleaner wing nut has rubber washer under it.

Body is at paint waiting for warmer weather so shop heater has a fighting chance to maintain painting environment.  If say any day now painting should commence.

I like it. So what makes it a Super Jeep? How many/few were made? One year only? I have a '75 CJ5 with the big steering wheel. Even after I went to power steering, I kept the orig wheel. That little wheel on yours looks difficult if you have manual. Looking forward to finished pics.

Here is the dash, as it was when I took delivery.  Very customized with fancy ash tray.  Lost in the windshield frame was a NORML hat pin Wink.  I think the dude who owned this thing originally was an interesting fellow.  Also quite a variety of match books, golf tees, golf pencils.  Note the aluminum Hurst shifter handle, mounted fighter joystick style.  Seats were from an early 70s Trans Am, I believe.  Tiny wheel entire unsuitable for manual steering and wide tires.

Replaced the flat springs with a 2.5" lift, new wheels, 32" Swampers, then noticed a leak in the gas tank.  Seemed really hard to drop from below so this happened:

That led to a whole bunch of more work.  Completely redid the chassis, pretty much everything except body work.

Could restore the heater, if you can get the control board ironed out. Or put in heated seats😎

VW/Porsche used eberspacher brand heaters in the same type of way. The air coolers needed extra heat. Though much maligned by mechanics and owners that didn’t have a clue, they were great. In my youth, my VW 412 provided flat flat lay down area, ‘spatcher the heat, and pioneer the tunes, when the wagoneer was apart and there was still life to be livin...

911 Porsche’s had them.

Now, in the marine world, eberspatcher(espar) and wabasto are household names in heaters. Particularly also big rig heaters, for when the rig is “sleeping”.
