    Well.... I put my Jeep up for sale today... ( it is also posted in Early CJ5 classifieds) DSC08704.JPG DSC08703.JPG DSC08706.JPG DSC08708.JPG DSC08694.JPG DSC08700.JPG DSC08712.JPG DSC08723.JPG DSC08705.JPG
    1928 Chevrolet Capital Truck...... This could also be called a 1969 CJ5 Jeep ... in Disguise. The Running gear & suspension is all out of the 4x4 Jeep. The frame was lengthened and boxed, from the original jeep (wheel base 83") to the Chevy truck, (wheel base 124")
    The Engine is the famous, Dauntless V6, 225 cu in (3.7L) (which has 160 HP & 225 lb Torque)... backed by the jeep T-14A, three speed manual tranny..... Dana 30 front axel, Dana 44 Rear axel, both with 3:73 gears..... makes this truck cruse comfortably at 60-70 mph..... smooth ride On or Off Road.....
    NEW: three core Aluminum Radiator, Hoses, Belts and Battery.....

    This is not a Show Truck... (although it is the favorite at car shows) It is a Daily Driver... built to be used and Driven.... handles real well, On or Off Road ...... One if a Kind, Hand Built 4X4Truck......
    The Price is $18,000..... (I have way more $$$$ than that invested) Need to sell.....
