Just Buying Defender Tub / Body for Custom Build
I am building an offroad buggy from the ground up. Its currently a combination of a stretched 1973 CJ5, 1986 CJ7 trans / transfer case, and a 1996 Saab 9000 Turbo engine.
Before I put the '73 CJ Body back on, I've been interested in the potential to put a defender body on it. Knowing that defenders are extremely expensive and rare in the US, I figure, why not just throw a defender body on my CJ frame? (Even a rotting junkyard defender will get over $10,000 here).
I did some googling, but could not find any sites of where to order the hood / fenders / grill / tub, etc.
Probably would not get doors or a roof, I'm mostly interested in the front-end and tub.
Does anyone have any ideas or advice for this?
