Good news. I have a guy wanting me to do a conversion. he wants the M1009 Mule conversion. I don't have the heart to tell him the price, parts and labor involved. I done it on my own time like cutting wood or mowing grass. I never gave it any thought as to the time and material needed. Glad to hear the M1009 is still running strong. Tough little vehicle. Take care of it and it will be here many years to come.
After a long time in storage the parts to convert an M1009 into a pickup truck and look stock have been sold. I posted a few of my M1009 parts on Facebook market and received a lot of attention and have sold the softback hard top conversion. I don't see me going that route again. and I also have a man in route from Nashville TN to pick up my full convertible parts conversion. If I keep cleaning up the assorted CUCV / Chevy truck parts I have I may get completed in a few more years. Each piece leaves with mixed emotions. But better being put to use than sitting collecting dust and doom. If I'm not here the parts will be meaningless to my Wife. Take Care and Be Safe.
I'm doing the same here...sell it all so it gets used and not thrown away. When my dad passed (great depression survivor and hoarder) we sold tons of stuff. Pennies on the dollar, but I felt better that stuff was going to a new home. In some cases of tools and woodworking equipment, brand new. Some of my siblings just threw stuff away, no sentimental value or appreciation! That really bothered me as some of the older stuff was collectible!
