NEED: Willys Wagon Information

Ok, ok, I messed up about 30-years ago, I gave away my Willys Wagon shop manual. The one that has the basic dimensions for the body mounts...
In my defense I haven't needed it in 30+years
Amazingly, I have not found this information on line!
Any one have that page scanned?

TIA

Do you have a Willys Wagon? I love those things. Love the pickups even more.

Not yet. . .
Jaysin said I should consider... What I once had.
He could be like that.
I figured I had time to get around to it. . .
His idea; and a good one.
Even my Wife likes it

PS~ PU Cab is to small for me to be comfortable (to tall) we talked about fabbing a Crew Cab but in the end we narrowed it to the wagon.

For this project I don't even really need the dimensions. The frame/body dimensions would simply allow getting a jump on the project.

The only Willys parts will be the sheet-metal/body, everything else will be the same, functionally; but all new. It just kills me to drop $40 on a manual to get maybe 2-pages of data, when $40 worth of beer would be much more productive

LOL. You have wasted too much time already that could have been spent finding the right candidate and taking any necessary dimensions off it directly.

I'll have this one parked out in the barn because it will be illegal to operate on our self driving highways and byways... I'll just go measure it

Is this it?????????? Page 111 in the manual. Adobe page 209 the way I see it. Tell me this is what you want so I can harass you on how simple it was to Google it.

As nice as that find is, and I thank you

The book I had has a top down view with the Body Mount Locations dimensioned.

I do understand the obsessed part I have been looking for a couple weeks.
My conclusion is that in this digital age there is still some data that is locked in vaporware...

OK, OK......if you take your calipers and use the existing dimensions as a reference then do a bunch of math........................there you have it. I recommend the TI30.

...about as far as I can go for now; have almost all the major components short of the body.

Have to get other jobs moving and completed... May be a while.
