I'd buy it if I could. I'd restore it to military configuration and a camo paint job - no way would I try to turn it into a J-truck. I might change the drive train though -- I'm thinking a nice AMC 360, 390 or 401 like out of a late 70's full-size Cherokee would be about right.

That's an M-715. The biggest and baddest Jeep ever made. :D

 

:agree:

 

Here's one in action. You'll love the ending. :D

So many Jeep's, not enough time, money, or space to put them.

That video sold me, except for the country music. :popcorn:

 

I laughed when the camera man said "that's embarassing" right after the 3 trucks started moving

Antwan, good to see you're still around. Funny, you just sold the MJ and now you're looking at this old dog? Can't get it out of your blood can ya?

 

LOL, hell yeah you should! And if you don't, let me know cuz that very well could finally get me down to L'burg. That could be a great day: get to meet you, go see that guy's private MJ collection you told me about a year ago, pick up that bad ole 715, and celebrate with a few beers and a Cheesy all the way, a bowl with, and a glass of the James at the Texas Inn!

 

Does it run? Any other issues you know of?

 

 

Jeepco, that ugly ole cab is what MAKES the 715 so cool brotha! :D

Wahoo, yeah we need to get together one weekend so I can show you that honeyhole! but I just can't help it, its almost like an addiction. I felt like $#!& when I sold the manche but the wife has given me the green light to buy this one so I am going to pick him up this weekend if we don't get that storm Hanna. Thanks guys for the feed back, This is truly one of the greatest sites on the net :USAflag: jamminz.gif

The M-715 preceded AMC's ownership of Jeep. The AMC 199/232/258 engines are all externally identical. Manifolds are all on the same side, and except for having a mechanical fuel pump they all look just about like our 4.0L XJ/MJ engines. The M-715 had a much older engine that was a Jeep creation.

Thats no 258. Intake is on the wrong side, and its got an automatic conversion, should be a 232 4spd with a Dana 200 case.

 

Someone's tried to have their way with it but the most important parts are there. $600? Why isnt it in your driveway yet :D

 

I wasn't gonna say anything about the 258 comments etc because I figured what I assumed (that I didn't think those had 258s) was wrong because someone truly in the know would point that out almost immediately. But what really caught my eye was not only the fact it was an auto, but the shifter looked like it was right out of a Cherokee. :popcorn:
