“Early production, according to some JEEP experts, this has early engine block, both good rears, locking hubs, god gauges , has oval pad behind oil filter, and 3 speed standard trans on column, we almost had engine running, we lost spark when rotor fell apart, decent frame, poor tub, and no title, and I cant find any tags on the body or frame, there is a number on the engine. and it was a funky green under the crappy brown that it is now.
No paperwork, repeat no paperwork, I am willing to lick my wounds after a dip in lake stupid for buying this thing at 1500, 1100 is the price.
This Jeep is in Bangor Pennsylvania, yes Bangor Pennsylvania, and its an hour from where I live, so not running around and meeting at 9 pm for a looky loo, if you are interested, I am more than happy to answer questions, and meet to sell it to you, if you can find one for 200 please buy it, or even 300 go for it.
If you don’t like the price you can buy it for 100 at my estate sale when im dead, cause buying crap like this is gonna kill me. No longer collecting cars or projects, not interested in trades of any kind, or crypto currency, or motorcycles, or dune buggys, or tools.”

• Dana 18 Transfer Case. SM420 to Dana 18 conversion creates a robust gear train assembly for broad use in severe terrain or tame roads. It is one of the most steadily popular manual shift transmission conversions into Jeeps, providing a very compact gear train, a supreme crawling gear.
