Jeep was originally purchased in 1960’s and used extensively on vineyard land.
The condition of the frame shows some rear cross member damage and the front cross member has a rust hole in it but all is within your normal “fixable” range of condition.
The body tub tool box floors are rotted through and there is patch work to the floors in places.

Front seat frames back rest repaired with newer tubing
No rear seat
No top bows or brackets
No body handles or hardware

Ford truck wheels- 16 inch rims- 650 mud and snow tires in poor shape (no spare)

Period correct reproduction Temp, oil pressure and voltage meter and key switch.
No nomenclature plates.

Engine and drive-line:
The engine shows a compression reading of
1- 100 lbs
2- 86
3- 85
4- 100
The engine may need a valve adjustment but appears to run fine. Components work off of the original 6 volt system.
The heat riser is stuck and needs to be serviced.
The transmission shifts and performs normally.
Some oil seepage mixed with dirt is present but no major oil leakage on the ground.
Proper air cleaner, cross over tube, oil filter housing. The carburetor is a CJ (636-SA) Carter in good running order.

Conclusion:
The running gear and motor are in good usable condition. The body is good for hunting and gathering but obviously not for show. A full restoration is possible but the Jeep would need a lot of correct style components.
