Default 1968 Jeep M715 monster truck. (now $5000)

Price drop! $5000.00 obo


Also interested in cash/vehicle trades.

Okay, here we go.

I have a 1968 jeep m715 for sale. I have many pictures that I can email.

Let me start off by saying this truck belonged to a friend of mine that has passed away. I don't know everything about it, but ill do my best. This is a project truck but needs very little to get going, it's a monster truck!

Here's what I know.
2-1/2 ton Rockwell axles.
Axle brakes and ebrake.
428/429 ford big block with matching transmission from 1974
Runs on propane. Has 2 forklift size tanks.
New plugs and wires. Comes with a brand new distributor with built in coil.
Twin stick transfer case.
B&M 3 speed shifter.
20 inch wheels, 47 inch tractor tires.
Has a roll cage and has the roof removed. He was planning on having a canvas top made.
Steel bar doors and original doors.
1 extra tire.
Removable steering wheel.
Racing seats and harness'.
Hydrolic steering

So here's what I know about what's wrong or needs work. Ill try my best not to miss anything, please feel free to ask any questions that I haven't answered and I can take any pictures you might like.
Seats are ruff but usable. The body had dents throughout as you would imagine a real 4wd would. Front fenders are cut, I don't know how much.
Isn't currently running, it was parked for a year in upstate New York before it was shipped out to my house. It's been parked a year now. I suspect the timing is the issue, but I don't know. Especially considering that it runs on propane, I'm out of my depth. She is ruff, and has seen better days, but she's a functional beast.

I know he payed almost 12k for it 3 years ago. It's not running and I don't want it to waste away any more. I'm looking to get 10k or best offer. I'm a motivated seller and will hear a reasonable argument. Comes with a bill of sale only. We never found a vin. It's not been registered ever to my knowledge.

If you want to see it in person or try to get her to start that's fine with me too.

I can be reached via email nutnice at gmail for a quick response.

Email for pictures.

Location, Colfax CA. Close to the rubicon or Lake Tahoe.

I can't post photos from my iPhone guys. Please email. Even if you just want to see it and aren't necessarily ready to buy. It's a pretty rare and rad truck..

Hey guys thanks for the compliments etc. this is one hell of a truck. It's all there, just rough, but with some elbo grease you will own the baddest truck around. 2 tires and likely a timing issue is all it really needs to drive over the top of a hummer..

BTW, folks that are far from here, when this was shipped from upstate New York the cost was around 1500$. Not as much as you would think. My driveway accommodates a flat bed, that's how it got here..

It's not registered. It was purchased by my friend out of W. Virgina. It then went to New York, then Colfax ca. Never was registered by him and the previous owner had never registered it. Off road vehicles are commonly sold with bill of sale only.

I don't have any video or pics of it in action. My buddy basically test drove it and had it shipped to a shop where he lived in up state NY, he moved back here and it went to my house. Per the ad, I tried to get it going but lack the knowledge of propane motors.
