Features and Specifications
1972 Jeep CJ
This 72 cj5 vehicle was built by Miller's Classics in NY. He recently passed away so his vehicles are now very highly sought after because high standards and workmanship . My uncle commissioned this vehicle to be built to his specifications at a cost of $89,000 in the 90's. He used it rarely at summer fairs. The engine is a built 390 from a correct era AMC AMX with a nice cam and other upgrads. It has 2 1/2 ton Rockwell axels w/ differential disc breaks. It has Carter duel quads on a ofenhauser manifold. The winch is a Ramsey 8000 lbs ( needs hand controller). The rear wheels turn hydraulicly and when you turn the front wheels the opposite way, since it's always in 4 wheel drive: the truck will spin crazy in a circle. It was insane, i do remember that!!! (Rear hose connection to the ram needs a O ring or thread sealent). Hood opens hydraulicly as does the rear tailgate. The 44in dirt dawg tires are like new, so yes I use a little step ladder, entrance is 50 in off the ground. Extensive use of stainless everywhere. Everything is hand made and custom. The frame is 10"x 1.5" channel that is powder coated I think, or baked acrylic. The Jeep has about 30 hrs on the build. When my uncle passed he left it to my cousin and when he passed away recently he left it to me. The truck needs 4 zipper axel boots which are 75 each on ebay. My whole family have always been car nuts. My uncle was a 4x4 nut my dad built mustangs and I build VW buses. This vehicle would cost 125k to build now. It's a pure steal and is registered and titled in CA in my name for the road. Would I drive it on the road? Maybe with street tires and mud flaps on it.... Thanks again.
