1977 Stretched CJ-7 Crawler Scranton, PA eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-7, Unusual • TAGS: .

It looks like there’s a pile of money put into this unusual rig. A couple things need fixing.

“This is a high-dollar build custom 1977 Jeep CJ that is just unreal! People come from all over to see this and get a picture with it. It is an extreme head-turner!! It will snap necks! The local police love it and offered to give me an escort wherever I need to go with it! It will dominate any 4×4 show. I own a car lot and use it for advertising. It is perfect for drawing business in.

It is an all steel body with the obvious mod, two extra doors! There is no roof with it. I was going to build an aluminum roof but never got around to it. It’s always been garage kept. The tires are 52 inch. The rims are 20 inch. It has a gorgeous small block chevy 350 with 350 turbo trans. I’ll add additional info about the rears tomorrow. I need to double check. It has air suspension. There is about 12-18 inches of travel with air. There is $60,000 invested in this. I use the term invested loosely… You will be investing though. This is an investment for your business or personal collection. The loss has already been absorbed by the original builder and myself. I can’t really call it a loss because it did it’s job. I sold a lot of cars and trucks due to the increased traffic this thing brought in.

Things it needs: the steering box mounted more sturdy. The mount flexes. It has a leak in the air suspension.

Please Call me before buying it now. It is a custom Jeep and I’m selling it as-is where is.”

1946 Willys CJ-2A. Notes: WILLY’s!!!! This is a 1946 Willy’s CJ2A Rock Crawler. This thing is cool. It has a well built Chevy 350 Motor with a 4 Speed Manual Transmission. This thing is sitting on 1 ton axles with a welded rear and locked front and 38″ Super Swampers. This thing has some serious get up and go. Like most older Jeeps, it is a work in progress and needs some finishing touches, but it runs and drives and is ready for some fun the way it sits.

1961 CJ-3B Madison, OH $2800


It’s a project.

“Here is a heavily modified old willys. Just about everything on it has been upgraded. Obviouslt the whole rear has been replaced with a tubular cage. I made it to offer great rollover strength but still mimic the classic body lines of the original willys, hence the curved door openings and the opening to fit the original willys tailgate.. The suspension uses Wider YJ leaf springs all around. reverse shackles up front and a 3/4 elliptical system in the rear, which allows for major flex. The old screw type steering was replaced with a heavy duty Saginaw box and beefed up custom linkage all over. All 4 wheels have been converted to disc brakes with stainless lines. the drivetrain however I kept stock, first, because of the nostalgia factor of keeping it willys, Second, because it has proven itself. Back when this was a normal jeep I could plow tons of snow and not slow it down at all or drive down the freeway at a fair speed. I have not started he engine in a few years but I’m sure it will crank over.
As I said, this is a project so it needs finished. Off the top of my head, it needs driveshafts put in, sheetmetal installed as the floor and sides (optional) brake lines run, pedals installed, amongst a few other things.
I am losing out big time asking what I am for it, but we all know you never get what you put into them. I just need to clear out some projects. You can call or text me at 4 four O-31 nine- O 47 O”
