Rebuilt by Adams Metallizing in Lancaster, CA

Newer axles from a 1975 CJ5

Power steering
Power brakes
Hydraulic clutch
3 speed manual T-15

New in box windshield glass
New in box steel dash
New in box black soft top with soft doors

Everyone kept suggesting high performance parts when rebuilding the motor. I had to remind everyone what it was going back into. That light weight body does not need a high performance built motor. The stock 327ci has enough to power that little jeep anywhere you need to go. By not being high performance it wont be temperamental either.

Comes with a box of extra parts, original axles, etc”

I spoke with Calvin about this Jeep. It underwent a frame up refurb with lots of new parts from Ron Fitzpatrick. The paint job was custom done by a local artist and is clear-coated. He’s only selling it because some back surgeries have made riding in it uncomfortable. Contact him via email at lorrainelg @ charter.net (remove spaces around @) or via the phone at 541 772 6089.
