    HISTORY/COMMENTS:
    This is my holy grail. I have loved the Scrambler since I saw it as a kid when it first came out. Difficult to find one in decent shape at a reasonable price, I found this one with a good frame, V8 already swapped in with upgrades but the body was rotted. But the price was reasonable, so the cost of buying an new body was in the budget. The plan all along was to find one to restore. And that is where this one is at. Only a rolling chassis right now, frame has been blasted and painted, new suspension and steering, rebuilt axles with upgrades and new stainless steel brake and fuel lines.
