Well this could be interesting!

Josh told me you were looking at one and I see now why you were so interested. The hurst option is sweet. Had no idea they ever did that...guess didn't do it long.

I say go AMC V8 instead of 350 but a V8 is a V8...

I already have a built 350 in a barn. Just needs to be cleaned up. The Hurst Jeepster came with a TH400 so the SB Chevy is a must.

That factory roof rack is a pretty penny too. Rare factory options are nice.

If it was me and it really is what you think it is, I would restore it and sell it for alot more money. I am the king of cutting stuff up, but even I know when not to. Its yours so you do as you wish, I just believe you'd be leaving alot of cash on the table

14 bolt is stronger and how many people can say they have a 14 bolt front? A 9 inch is also an option they have spider hi nine housings that are drool worthy.
