1948 Jeep CJ

I am going to do my best to list all the information of this build.
It was originally built in the 90's by a guy named Jim Frens in Reno, NV.Rebuilt again in 2012/13 for the 2013 Ultimate Adventure by Kenny Smith in South Carolina.
Engine: Buick 231 V6 (Grand National Block) with Howell Fuel Injection D.U.I. Distributor (Rebuilt 2018 maybe 500miles just changed out break-in oil)Transmission: T-18A 4-Speed (Rebuilt 2018 500miles on since rebuild) Quicktime Shatter-Proof Bellhousing, Advance Adapters chain drive clutch kit.Transfer: Dana 18 w/ Herm overdrive Warn (new in box not installed)Front Axle: Currie Built Dana 44 w/ Detroit Softlock, 5.38 gearsRear Axle: Currie Built Dana 44 w/ Detroit Softlock, 5.38 gearsFrame: CJ5 (exact year unknown)Suspension: Hybrid M-38 main leaf springs with '71 CJ-5 secondary leaves front & rear SOA, adjustable Rancho shocksTires/Wheels: 35x14.50-15 Nitto Mud Grappler w/ 15x10 Chrome spoke rims new spare tire/wheel (been in storage)Poison Spider Spare Tire CarrierBrakes: Hydro Boost (Cadillac Eldorado) w/ Front & Rear Electric Line locks (can be operated by switch in cab)Steering: GM Saginaw box w/ GM pump all custom and tucked awayGauges: Autometer ULTRA-LITE 2 w/ GPS SpeedometerCJ-5 Gas Tank with custom mount and filler neckFull Roll Cage, Racing seatbelt harness, JAZ Bucket Seats, Rear Storage custom rack/boxRigid Off-Road lightsWinch: Warn M8274 & Remote (New in 2018) w/ Synthetic RopeNew Battery (Jan 2019)New Top/Doors Bestop Tiger Top just installed Dec 2019 and Kayline Bikini TopOriginal Harrison Heater in cab (Heats up perfect in winter driven to work a few times)
The title is listed as a 1948 CJ2A, But the body is repro with both MB / M-38 tool indents. Never seen one like it before. It does have an original 2A tailgate. MB Grill. The paint is Metallic Teal in color
Spare Parts:New Currie custom cut axel shafts and bearingDual Battery BoxCustom Skid Plates that cover all of the drive trainEtc.
This Jeep has been proven capable on the 2013 ULTIMATE ADVENTURE Driven from SC-TN-GA-AL-FL from trail to trail.
The rear pinion seal is the only leak that I have noticed and its very small. The oil pressure on the fresh rebuild is perfect at around 50lbs.
I am being as honest as possible, there has been more done to this Jeep than I'm listing. In a build like this you can see all the custom work and time involved. The amount of man hours put into this rig is incredible.
I am willing to negotiate on price if the winch is removed or the overdrive.
Buyer pays all of shipping delivery or I can work something out on a local pickup.
