A real head turner! My jeep is a 53 willys body on a 78 cj7 frame (car is titled as a 53 willys). The body is all fiberglass, so no rust. There is a 1984 six cylinder 258 engine. Original engine (an older 258) was replaced with this 258 three years ago. Guy I bought it from said it was rebuilt 25000 miles ago. Has the carter 2bbl carb so it takes time to warm up when cold. Has a T150 transmission 3 speed transmission. Geared to go down the highway and go off-roading in the low gear too. Transmission was checked over last year. Shifts very good in forward gears. Does grind when you put it in reverse but only if you do it quickly. 4 Wheel drive works awesome. Has lockers on the front rims. The tires are 35" BFGoodrich All Terrain wheels. The rims were painted in april of this year. Tach and gas gauge do not work. Brand new custom made bumpers were installed in march of this year too. There is so much more that can be said about this jeep! I have an original 53 cj2a hood that I will include only if the car sells for the asking price, other wise I can resell it. Have many other miscellaneous parts that can go with it too. Does have two seat belts installed. There are no doors or tops. Im sure you could put them on if you wanted to. Have a bench seat for the back too if it is wanted (there are no brackets, just the seat).

Has been garage kept. Previous owner owned it since it was put together. He was also a welding teacher so a lot of things are welded, like the roll bar to the windshield (which is metal). Only selling because Im moving to a house w/ a smaller garage and have to sell one of my toys.

Serious inquires only. No looky loos. If you can't drive a stick, this is probably not the jeep for you!
