Description for Jeep Wagoneer 1974

Here is an extremely rare factory 401 equippedproject 1974 Jeep Custom Wagoneer. Yes, this is the same legendary engine that powered the AMC Javelin AMX from 1971-1974! This Jeep Wagoneer originally came with the GM turbo 400 automatic transmission (now missing) that are available in Denver totally re manufactured for $650. This is a numbers matching engine vehicle. Clear standard CO title,cowl tag, and the cab VIN tag all show the same VIN. AMC did NOT stamp partial VIN's on their engine blocks and used an aluminum tag screwed onto the passenger side valve cover. These were easily lost through time. This vehicle has its original tag still in place. It shows: 701Z02 which decodes to mean: 1974-January-401 engine-2nd day of January. The cab VIN tag shows a build date of January, 1974 which coincides with the valve cover tag. AMC blocks were cast with the engine displacement size in large numbers between the freeze plugs and behind the motor mounts. The 401 casting numbers are plainly visible (last photo). This vehicle came from AZ, then to (dry)Archuleta County, CO and then to (also dry) Delta, CO in 1999, and that explains why it is almost rust free. A little bubbling around the right rear wheel opening that could be welded up and ground down with out having to cut it out. Frame, floor pans, door bottoms, rockers, hood, rear hatch, firewall, cowl, etc all look to be rust free and dent free. All glass except the windshield (available online for $350) are very nice. Has been repainted on the outside obviously as it was originally Fairway Green with green interior which is all still original. It came with 401, automatic, tilt steering, power steering, A/C, cruise control, power front disc brakes (still has its original calipers!), AM radio, clock, roof rack, leather wrapped steering wheel, and bucket seats. Someone stole the gauge cluster from it at some point (no cut wires) and evidently had an issue with the ignition switch in the column as it is missing so I have no keys to start it. The correct 4V Autolite 4300 carb is currently not installed but it is extremely nice and I have it. The engine does turn by hand. I have the original drive shaft and transmission cross member. All grill, lenses, chrome, and stainless are in good shape. Has good BFG tires all around. Even the vinyl wood grain decal that runs laterally between the trim strips is availableby a vendor here on EBay (item #223631581228).Just find a wrecked 74 Wagoneer and pull ignition switch (with keys), dash cluster, install a new transmission and put in a windshield.The engine alone is worth at least $4,000. Look around....these are almost non existent. They are the next rising star ....can you imagine a Bronco or Scout from the early 1970's with a 4V 400+ c.i. engine from the factory???!!!
