EXCLUSIVE: Jeep Projects from the Georgia Collection

As part of the large Georgia collection we’ve featured here on Barn Finds as an Exclusive, I wanted to create a post specific about several Jeep projects that are available. These are a mixture of parts vehicles and restoration projects, although I wish this tree-damaged Jeep Wagoneer Limited could be brought back to life. It’s optioned to the hilt and has a very nice interior, but took an unfortunate tree strike to the center of the roof. Take a look at some of the other Jeeps below and be sure to scroll through the gallery to see additional photos.

The is the interior of the tan Limited model, which features a locking rear end and a 360 motor that still turns freely. It does have some mild rust but nothing significant, and it was a running/driving truck when it came into the yard. The seats are still firm and the interior is dry, and the door panels are also holding up nicely. There’s lot of good parts here, and possibly a good project if you’re able to bend the roof back into shape.

Parked next to the tan truck is another Wagoneer, this one being a standard-issue, non-Limited trim. The body is quite tidy on this example, and I can’t tell if the black paint is a re-spray or a factory finish. There’s no major rust to report and this one also features a 360 (come to think of it, I think the next Cherokee does, too!) The interior is likewise holding up nicely and there’s more pictures of it in the gallery below.

Here’s a cool Cherokee Chief “S”-trim model, which has an interesting past as a former show truck. There’s still a huge wall in the cabin that formerly housed about six subwoofers, but the speakers are long-gone along with the seats and console. Still, these two-door S models are coming back into vogue, and this one would make an excellent restoration project with perhaps even the potential to make some money on it down the road.

Finally, we have a truck that’s been captured in previous posts: it’s a Gladiator J3000, complete with the factory winch bumper and a manual transmission. The Jeep also has the AMC 327 V8 under the hood, which did run and drive when it was parked. Rust is minimal, with just some noted on the trailing edges of the back of the cab, and it will need a bed if you plan to haul anything. Please check out the rest of the pictures below, and contact me for more information or to set up an appointment to view the trucks.

    Good place for them,,,kidding, kidding, settle down now, I know there’s a huge following for these, and lots of great parts. To bring one back from this stage is a big task, but if current trends continue with vintage 4×4’s ( FJ’s and 1st gen Broncos, etc), these will probably be the next 5 figure vehicles, and nice ones probably already are, so a great find for someone. I didn’t have the best luck with mine, but no denying what great vehicles they are.

    The Gladiator would be my first choice even if it doesn’t have the bed. If a bed that’s in good shape can’t be sourced from anywhere, an aftermarket stake bed with removable stake sides would suffice for me.

    I would get both the tan one and the black one. Cut the roof off the tan one. Cut the roof off the black one and put it on the tan one.
    My ex and I had a 1972 tan one. Great vehicle.

    Can we stop calling this a “collection”? The term implies some care and feeding, which these derelict vehicles did not receive. I collect vintage brochures. Would it still be a collection if I threw them out in the yard to rot?
