Drag Jeep Visalia, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Racing • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8950

“This Jeep is the best of both worlds. We have enjoyed running in the dunes all weekend, letting the kids drive it all over. Then turn the bottle on and run 4.70’s at the sand drags. The Jeep has ran as fast as 4.68 at 69 mph. The drive train is a mild small block 400 which runs on pump gas, with a Mikes 400 trans w/brake and a 9″ Ford rearend with a spool. The nitrous set up is NOS which is right now set a about 150 hp. The nitrous has safety fuel pressure shut off to protect against damaged do to loss of fuel pressure. The electronics are MSD 6AL box, MSD Pro Billet distributor, MSD Pro blaster coil and a MSD 2 step box. The fuel system is a Holley Fuel pump with adjustable fuel pressure regulator and Holley carburetor. The Jeep has been remarkably reliable and consistent.”

Rapid Transit Lives . . .

• CATEGORIES: Features, Racing • TAGS: , , .

Damian wrote to tell me that a favorite drag jeep of mine, Rapid Transit, is racing under a new owner and a new power train. It looks like it uses a Bobcat hood and (likely) body.

He writes, “believe it or not this jeep is still around in the cleves, ohio area and races regularly, but it is now a center seater 2wd and has a small block chevy, i race with the current owner and also do photography.”

You can view Damian’s photos on Facebook. Below is a comparison between the old and new racer.

1959 Wagon Rio Rancho, NM **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Jeep Rods, Racing, Willys Wagons • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $19,950.

“I have an absolutely awesome 59 Willys Wagon Pro Street. It has a professionally built full square tube chassis and a Mustang 2 front end with rack and pinion steering. The 14 point cage was certified for 8.80s about 16 years ago. This was a drag car converted to a 9.0 second pro street car. It has a full roller, blown small block 400 punched to a 406 with an 8 quart oil pan, MSD ignition, E curve distributor and Wiend 671 Blower . Included are two 750 demon blower carbs and Dart 230 pro heads. Has NOS (never hooked up, never tried). The trans is a built Turbo 350 with a 3500 stall converter. Also has a 15 gallon fuel cell, wheelie bars and fan cooled oil and trans oil coolers under the rear. Dana 60 with 4.10s and detroit locker. Engine and trans have about 700 miles on them.

Wheels and Tires: Front and rear wheels are draglites. Rear tires are Mickey Thompson 33×19.5×15 Sportsman Pros. Front tires – Front Runners

HP? How does 650-750 sound?!?! And that’s without the 250 shot of nitrous! Can you say better than sex?!?!?

So let’s talk about what all of the above would cost. Buying the vehicle before engine and other grades – $30,000 with full square tube chassis, rack and pinion, etc. The engine alone would cost approximately $22,000 (with blower, etc.) NOS $1,000. Turbo 350 trans with stall converter another $1,500. Oil and Trans oil coolers $1,000. So all in – to build it yourself (AND THAT’S IF YOU COULD FIND ONE!) would cost you $55,000+!!!!!”
