“Bought off Bring a Trailer for $11k over a year ago and was told it was in perfect shape, guess what and no surprise, that good old boy from Virginia lied through his teeth!!!

Anyways, I’ve had several Jeeps and this one has one of the nicest rust-free bodies, as well as complete and original gauges, E-Brake Handle, Seats, Motor and Trans. The engine has been completely rebuilt by a top shelf mechanic that works on my entire collection of rare and High cars such as Porsches, Mercedes, and muscle cars. I bought this as a beach cruiser, around, town summer fun car…

It’s now turnkey and ready to drive anywhere safely and worry free as long as going to anywhere is under 55 MPH as its original and that’s the top speed on all these old jeeps. If you’re looking for a freeway flier commuter, you’re looking in the wrong spot. This is a fun, rare, unmolested, non-rock crawled, or hot rodded nice old army jeep. Throw a $100 tow bar on it and take it to the desert, Mexico, mountains or wherever. Parts are cheap and plentiful on dozens of websites, even amazon. Good thing is, I’ve already fixed it all!

Just brought it home from the shop, starts, drives straight, tight steering and stops well too!

work just done includes:

Rebuilt Overhead cam hurricane 4 cyl. engine
Brand new YF carburetor from Jeepster Man, not some Chinese POS
New Steering Box
New steering assembly, torsion bars, idler arm, drag link, all bushings.
New brake shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders, drums turned, stops like a jeep now.
New Master Cylinder.
Full Tune up, including new wires, plugs, points, rotor, condenser, cap and Plugs.
All fluids flushed and topped off.
New Tires
Rebuilt Generator converted to 12 volt and charges fine.
Aluminum 3 core radiator.
All light, signals, brake light, gauges and gauge lights work as they should.
Bearings, hubs greased, and all good.
4×4 and transfer case works as it should.

Newer Soft top with zip down windows rear window, clear with no yellowing and soft not brittle or stiff.

Registered until Feb. 2023, clean title not salvage, in hand and in my name.

I hate to sell it, but I’ve got way too many cars and need the garage space for my higher end cars. You’ll see I’m not lying if you come to check it out. All my cars are turnkey and well maintained as I drive them to shows on the weekends, an take my 5-year-old daughter so I don’t mess around or take shortcuts and put her at risk or freak her out because it won’t start or breaks down on the side of the road on BFE.

I’m a straight shooter that got screwed by a good ol boy off a well-known national site. My pain is your gain! lesson learned. I’m into this thing for at least $20k or more.

Selling for $15,000 or reasonable offer. Cash talks, please no tire kickers, low Ballers, or CL Time Bandits.”
