Huh? 17hp homemade jeep … $1200


I hope the 17hp fact is a mistake.  I can't believe someone's asking money for this thing …

"You are looking at a homemade willys jeep made out of very heavy steel plate and a toyota rearend, With a heavy duty transmission with hi/low forward and reverse. Even has a working winch and headlight and tail lights that work. It has a 17 hp twin Kohler engine. runs and drives but needs carb cleaned and belts tightened on clutch. asking 1200.00 OBO or will trade something of equal value."
