    Default 1928 Chevy P/U on 1969 CJ drivetrain



    A connection through the ecj5 site is selling this...he did the build himself, and I'll link the build thread below. He is into old 1920s and 30s trucks, but likes to modernize them a bit (if you can call putting it on a 1969 cj5 drivetrain 'modernizing'). He also did some of the classic upgrades to the cj drivetrain that are pretty common, but it'll drive like a 50 year old truck instead of a 100 year old truck....not really my cup of tea, but if it were closer I'd probably go see it in person just to see what the ride quality is really like...for any one really serious, give Sonny a call and know he just dropped another $3k off the listed price (asking $15k now)....
    Here is the build thread:
    http://www.earlycj5.com/xf_cj5/index...pickup.143645/

    1928 Chevrolet Capital Truck...... This could also be called a 1969 CJ5 Jeep ... in Disguise. The Running gear & suspension is all out of the 4x4 Jeep. The frame was lengthened and boxed, from the original jeep (wheel base 83") to the Chevy truck, (wheel base 124")
    The Engine is the famous, Dauntless V6, 225 cu in (3.7L) (which has 160 HP & 225 lb Torque)... backed by the jeep T-14A, three speed manual tranny..... Dana 30 front axel, Dana 44 Rear axel, both with 3:73 gears..... makes this truck cruse comfortably at 60-70 mph..... smooth ride On or Off Road.....
    NEW: three core Aluminum Radiator, Hoses, Belts and Battery.....
    All new wiring and fuse blocks through out.....
    New Distributor, Coil, points, condenser, plugs and plug wires..... Rebuilt 2G Carburetor....
    New Fan (never gets hot)..... but has an extra 12 volt fan mounted for extra hot (above 100 degree F) days....
    Transfer case and 4X4 manual hubs work just fine, (as they should)....
    Recent Metallic British racing green, Paint, Black fenders.....

    NEW: Jeep Bucket Seats, and real Leather Upholstery.....
    Speedometer & fuel & temp Gauges.....
    Wooden rim steering wheel......
    Heater & defroster......
    Entire Truck Cab Firewall & Floor, is insulated and sound proofed.....
    Dual muffler and tail pipes.....
    Safety Glass installed all around.......
    LED interior & Dash lights, Brake & tail & turn signals, and backup light....

    NEW; Brake lines throughout, Master Cylinder, Wheel Cylinders & Brake shoes....
    New, Bright Halogen Head Lights (high & low beam).....
    Completely Rebuilt Jeep Steering Box, New steering Dampener.....
    Hydraulic Clutch, master cylinder & slave cylinder......
    Wood in the floor of the 6ft Truck Bed.....

    This is not a Show Truck... (although it is the favorite at car shows) It is a Daily Driver... built to be used and Driven.... handles real well, On or Off Road ...... One if a Kind, Hand Built 4X4Truck......
    The Price is $18,000..... (I have way more $$$$ than that invested) Need to sell.....
    I might trade some if the cost, for....... a 1929 to 1934 vintage Car or Truck, Original Survivor... that is in original running condition..... perhaps an older restoration.... contact Sunny @ 505-99zero-six008
    All the 'bugs' have now been worked out of this project.... it is finished & running beautifully....

    Interesting.

    Perhaps toss a note to the ecj5 admin - it'd be nice if they allowed visitors to see pictures... "You must be logged in to do (SEE) that."

    Thanks for sticking some pictures up here for us (and the world) to enjoy.
