Year? Flattie Waco, TX $2000

• CATEGORIES: MB • TAGS: .

This has some odd mods.

“This Jeep is being sold for parts. It was bought for parts to fix another older jeep but this one has had some custom modifications from the past owner who used it as a farm vehicle. It has a V-6 and a manual three speed transmission with 4WD. The differentials and transmission would be excellent for off road builds. This jeep is being sold as is and in one piece. It does not have tires so the buyer is responsible for loading and transporting the Jeep. I am ready to get rid of this jeep so the price could be negotiated.”

Vintage Willys Jeep sitting on a Chevrolet Truck 4×4 frame custom built. Vehicle is in good condition, it has always been stored inside and not exposed to weather. Although the vehicle has been sitting inside for several years, after putting fresh gas in the tank the Chevrolet 350 Engine was cranked and it does run. It will go into gear and would lot drive but the front brakes are stuck and will need some work. The vehicle does not have a battery so it will need a new one. The vehicle was put together to run in tractor pulls but never was used for that purpose. It has been in used parades and on display but cannot be driven on the highway as this vehicle has been heavily modified.
