1947 Willys 439 CustomFull custom, ground up build with high end store bought parts. it is registered and in my name as a 47 Jeep, even though the the whole thing was build new just a few years ago. There has been no expense spared on this Jeep. Body is a very well built thick fiberglass that's in perfect shape. No rust to worry about with this Jeep. The frame is a late model Jeep frame that has been boxed and reinforced throughout. Engine is a 350 Chevy 4 bolt main, steel crank, forged pistons, decked, lined, bored and balanced. Cylinder heads have been completely gone through, including larger valves, springs, retainers, studs and roller rockers. Quiet gear drive with a mild street cam for hours of idling. Aluminum radiator with temp controlled electric fan; never gets hot even after running all day. Electronic ignition, Hooker Headers. Chrome or Aluminium everything possible on the engine. Transmission is a professionally built Powerglide, with a manual shift valve body, aftermarket transmission cooler, and heavy duty torque converter. This transmission is bullet proof! Drive shafts are new with heavy duty U joints and retainers. Front and rear differentials have 4:11 gears. Disk brakes in the front with Warn hubs, and drum brakes in the rear. Wildwood master cylinders with stainless braid throughout. The Chassis has an aftermarket front sway bar that is easily disconnected for trail riding and full articulation. Power steering with remote reservoirmake turning the huge Super Swampers turn easily. The suspension springs are medium in the front and firm in the rear. Dual shocks (chrome) in the rear, and single (chrome) in the front. Steering linkage (chrome) is very tight with no play at all. This Jeep drives very well and tight going down the road. The wheels are Micky Thompson polished aluminium, Tires are 35" Super Swampers with good tread on them. Both front and rear bumpers are set up to be use as air tanks if needed. Fuel cell is located in the rear along with the battery under the polished aluminum diamond plate cover, which uses half turn fasteners for easy access. Full roll cage with padding, Bucket seats are in great condition with heavy padding and Simpson quick disconnect seat belts. The gauges are digital and all work except the speedometer and fuel gauge. I don't think these were ever hooked up. Oil pressure usually runs 45-55 psi depending on how long you have been driving, and the temp only gets up to 195. The dash is spun aluminum, has a tilt steering column and there is a master disconnect switch hidden behind the dash for extra protection. There is also an alarm. I have had the Jeep for a few years but rarely have the time to drive it. Usually when i do, it's in parades, or the local car shows. I bought it down in Pismo Beach where the previous owner did the parade thing, but also took it out to the dunes. It has never seen rain or snow, and has always been garage kept, hooked up to a charger and started every few weeks to keep things lubed up. There are a few paint nicks here and there, but nothing major. With huge tires like these nicks are going to happen. I wish i had the time to use her more, but i don't. I don't want to see it just sit there so it's time for someone else to enjoy. It only has about 5,000 miles since the build. Be prepared when you drive it to get lots of looks, pictures and questions about it. Our kids love it and think it's a big toy, which i guess it really is.
