Willys-Overland Motors started production of the CJ (Civilian Jeep) way back in 1944 as a non-military version of their dirt conquering Jeep. Production continued all the way through 1986 when AMC replaced it with the YJ Wrangler. There was a long wheelbase CJ-8 pickup variant that was available with a cool Scrambler graphics package, but Jeep never built a crazy 4-seat long wheel base variety with the footprint of a boxcar. But somebody did. Find this 1984 Jeep CJ Stretched V8 swap here on eBay currently bidding for $7,100 reserve-not-met, located in Cockeysville, MD. Tip to Bardzik.
You might think that maneuverability, u-turns, parking garages, and such would be a problem until you realize that few normal objects are barriers to this thing. Can’t make the turn, just run over the curb, you probably won’t notice that stuff that is happening in the next zip code behind you where the rear tires are chirping over stuff.
The V8 under the hood is a 5.7 liter (350 cubic inch) Chevrolet small block…you know, the one that is shoved into just about every custom creation ever built?
This thing has enough leg room to put Yao Ming behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and still have room for a 24 pack of beer under the seat.
