Default **PLEASE DELETE**500+hp 401 clean glass CJ-5 project, dunes or cruise

Well it has been sitting in my shop for a few years and I dont see having time to finish it with 2 jobs and 3 kids.I have a 1974 jeep CJ-5, frame is great. It has a 4wd hardware fiberglass body and a nice orange paint job with a small SVO scoop.I ran it on the dunes with a 360 and t-15 with NOS and kept breaking transmission. so I pulled the 360 and bought a 401 to build. I copied the hotrod build "500 hp for under 4k" they got 520 hp, the only difference is I had the block line bored and it balanced and added roller rockers. It has never been fired, it cost over $6000 to build but it has set covered for a few years so it should be disassembled and inspected before running. I bought headers and sidepipes and had them jetcoated crome. I have a DUI ignition for it also. I got a th400 with the advanced adapter to dana 20, it has a B&M shift kit and 2800 rpm stall converter, I cracked the corner of the th400 housing but bought a spare th400 to swap the guts into. It has lots of crome and stainless on it. It has a NOS 175 HP kit. the motor was built to handle it. It has a full cage tied to the frame, 4 " lift, and brackets on both side of the axles if you want it bigger.It has 33x15.5 x15 swampers on crome wheels, glass racing seats.
It needs about a week worth of assembly, motor and trans installed, needs a carb around 750 cmf and a radiator.
It also comes with 2 parts jeeps a 304 3 speed cj-7 and scrambler 6-auto both rusty and rough but have spare parts and brackets, also all my spare CJ stuff in my shop, bellhousing, extra axles
This is a great oppertunity for someone who has some spare time and ability, 10 years ago I would have jumped it the project but life changes as you get older.always stored inside

Finally selling the 5 huh? Good luck with the sale!
Someone is going to get a sweet setup for the dunes. You have almost that much just in the engine alone.

p.s. I havent seen the shop that clean in a long time!

Actually I have more into the motor and accsessories than I am asking..such is life. The shop is clean for the same reason I am selling the jeep, no time. I haveen't done any projects in a while just basic maintance and I am lucky I got the XJ done over the winter. So.. Jon make sure your jeep is just how you like it before you have any more kids,4 years ago $2000 for paddles no big deal, now $400 for a locker and the world is going to end and I am selfish.

To awnser the question "whats the least you will take?" its $4800 firm, or partial trade for a 3/4 to 1 ton 4x4 or HD car hauler/ equipment trailer, if it doesnt sell in a few weeks it will go into the the warehouse until I have time to finish it someday.
