    SOLD

    Mostly complete Jeep for sale, needs body installed, the chassis is assembled and in good shape.

    Before I pulled the body off I had driven this around the neighborhood a bit, it it drove fine, steering and brakes are good.

    I pulled the rusty body off of this jeep and found another tub with less rust. The passenger floor board and tool box floor have rust holes, I think the floor of the old tub can be used to patch it.
    The VIN tag is still on the old tub and I have the title for it.
    The windshield frame is rough but serviceable, it needs a tailgate and chains.
    The engine runs, it has a new clutch and radiator though it needs carb work.
    I replaced all of the clutch linkage when I replaced the clutch however the link rod ended up on my '73.
    New brakes were installed sometime before it was parked and I bought it but it needs a master cylinder.

    The wiring will require some work, it's been hacked up and modified by previous owners. It is repairable.

    I have a two barrel manifold from a newer 258 and a few Motorcraft carbs, my plan was to build one good one. That plan will require a new exhaust manifold or header.

    The gas tank needs cleaned but it looks good inside, I have a new fuel sending unit.

    I removed the bent rear cross member and bought a new one through Classic Enterprises with the inner reinforcement for the tow mount. This still needs to be installed.

    The prior owner bought new front and rear seats, there are no seat mounts for the rear.

    Original 3 speed trans with a twin stick kit for the transfer case.
    The axles are 3.73 ratio, I have a set of used 4.27 gears along with some other axle parts.

    There is also a SM465 trans that can go with it, it was given to me so I thought I'd pass it along.

    Let me know what pictures you want, I didn't feel like digging everything out just to take pictures.

    Needs:
    Some rust repair to the passenger floor board
    Tailgate and chains
    Tires
    Some wiring repairs
    Clutch linkage rod
    Master cylinder
    Carb work or replacement
    Battery

    I don't know what it's worth, $3000? Make me an offer, I need the space more than the cash.
    Located near Carson City, NV.

    I should mention that presently the gray body is not secured to the frame.

    I've been trying to figure out the best way to transport this long distance, a box truck and flatbed trailer come to mind.
    Or I suppose the body could be bolted back to the frame, placed on a trailer and the spare body carried either in a truck or secured on top.

    All the other parts could be stacked in both bodies.

    Ratchet strap around the body and frame, do not strap it to the trailer

    How are those plans coming along? :D
    I will be headed through CO in April, I can drop some of it off on my way through if that helps.

    I'd like to get this moved, if there is no interest here I'll try Craigslist.
    I'd rather not let a bunch of local strangers in my shop to look at it.
