“This is my pride and joy that I built for myself not to flip but now after completing the build I never have time to use it so I finished it 3 years ago and as you can see it has just over a 1000 miles on it and most of that is driving around town!! I have taken it across the Rubicon 3 times and across Fordyce once. I DO NOT trailer it every time, I drive it straight up I-80 thru Lake Tahoe to the Rubicon and back home it is registered street legal although it is pushing it with CHP!! I can tell you that pictures do not do this Willy’s justice you will not be disappointed to see and hear it in person it is very clean and capable of any trail.

Everything is new on this build, I have every every receipt and as im sure you know this is WAY over 50% off what i have into it, im not ready yet to go public with what i have into this!! The engine was built by a well known local engine builder everything in or on the motor is new I have every receipt and it runs like a watch it is carbureted and it has never flooded out on me one and I have tested it.

    Oh man… If this was posted 18 months ago before I started my current project I would have held my nose and flew to California immediately!

    Hi Maddog,

    I haven’t seen it relisted on Craigslist recently. I have updated the post. If it is relisted on Craigslist, I will drop you a note.

    Something special! USA did not produce auto’s in 1944 to enhance our effort to win the war.
    They did hower turn out Jeeps. I will take a 1932 5 window ford for the thirtys. This 1944 jeep (NICE) for the fortys. A 1957 chevy for the fiftys.
