1948? Flattie Ava, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6500

(07/28/2014) This is back up for ‘possible’ sale. It’s an unusual build. It’s listed as a ‘1948 willys jeep m38’.

I was posting some other items and thought I would post this vehicle and test the waters. I’m not really wanting to sell this just got it up and running. It is tagged road legal (barely) It always draws attention and looks. It is a reproduction m38 willys flat fender tub. sitting on a 1978 ford bronco frame that has been bobbed. There is a 6 inch rancho lift with 35″ tires. The engine is a 1976 ford 400 big block! the motor weighs almost as much as the tub! It is a beast sounds good and runs great. It has a hydro boost brake booster. The hood was raised two inches and the nose was stretched about 8 inches to accommodate the motor, nice 4 core radiator, doesn’t get hot. Full roll cage attached to the frame. 5 point harnesses. It does have a heater and a manual wiper on driver side. New windshield that can tilt out. Painless wiring box. All new wiring. lights work. There is a locker in the rear, not sure on the gear ratio. the 4×4 works. It has a c6 transmission with b&m shifter. I believe I know what this is worth and I know what I have put into it. I’m very curious what someone else would be willing to offer for it. Please no low ballers I know it is worth more than a “plane jane” wrangler so don’t make offers less than that! If you are looking for a one of kind rock crawler that is street legal this is it! It is not a show vehicle it has just enough patina & roughness that makes it look good and you don’t mind taking it off road. Yet, it still looks good at the local drive in too!”

    Maybe a reproduction tub, but looks like an MB/GPW and not M38: drivers side tool indents, rear shock towers, and tool box lids. Front MB/GPW grill, too. Looks pretty amazing overall 🙂
