My Beer Buggy

I know I should post this in the for sale forum, but I think it fits better here. I am selling my "Beer Buggy" I have recently rebuilt the entire truck, the engine is the original F-Head that has been balanced and blueprinted with new Pistons, bearings, Valves, lifters, Cam, springs etc.. The transmission and transfer case have been rebuilt as well. It has a Clifford Header, and a Weber 2 BBl carb on it as well. The brakes have been replaced from the ground up, the wiring has been completely redone. It still has the original "Cleveland" styl U joints on the front drive shaft, I made Oilite bushings to replace the needle bearings as parts are no longer available for that style. If you wanted you could replace the yokes on the front axle and transfer case to upgrade to the common "Detroit" style joins if you wanted. All the gauges work, it runs down the road nicely. It is still running on 6V the generator has been rebuilt. The original wheels have been Powder coated and are in excellent shape. I honestly don't know how many miles it has, as the speedometer shows 1400, the engine was in very good shape when I pulled it apart, but I cant imagine the miles were original. I replaced the fuel tank with a poly replacement as well. The steering linkage has all been rebuilt and it has new leaf springs all around. The back half of the body is all made out of Red Oak and cleared with 4 coats of Automotive High Solids Clear. The only thing the Jeep does not have is Windshield Wipers, I have the motor, but one of the mouting tabs is broken off. The linkage under the dash has been rebuilt and is ready for a new wiper motor. I have not installed shocks, but driving it up to 50 MPH it does not really need them. The seat is leather and out of a Chrysler Town and Country, it has a few blemishes but fits nice, and is comfortable. I have installed Seat belts as well. It has new exhaust with a glass pack muffler for a little attitude. It will hold 128 bottles of Beer and Ice in each side box. I fiberglassed both boxes so they are watertite and hold water. It is a great Party/Picnic vehicle and great in parades as well. It runs cool and is very reliable (Well as reliable as an old Willys can be lol) As far as I can tell it was originally produced as a Chassis/Cowl, and is not a cut up Wagon. The block off plates on the door hinges and the welds at the top of the A pillar look to be of a "Factory" quality, not hacked, but not too nice either. I am asking 6500.00 for it. My E-mail is
