MISCELLANEOUS: Jeep was bought and shipped from California in poor running condition due to clogged converter, ad carburetor and heavy build-up of carbon due to bad emissions system. All of this was removed and the Jeep is now a basic vehicle with engine, arburetor, ransmission and exhaust system. Now runs like a Jeep should!! Jeep had a non-working A/C system which was removed; compressor motor still under hood for serpentine belt operation (A/C parts available if wanted). Keys do not work on full metal doors or half doors; new Posi-Lok system bought to change Jeep from vacuum to mechanical $WD (not installed but will be come with Jeep if wanted). QUESTION THAT WILL BE ASKED: Why are you selling it? I am 69 and only bought this as a project car to help pass time. I'm done and it is for sale. Only serious people please. I have more in it than I will ever recover and don't need help selling it. Thanks for looking!
