1977 Honcho - 401

Postby MNHoncho » Sat Jan 05, 2019 6:18 am

I'll get some pics, but wanted to see if anyone has interest in a partial project. A lot has been done on it.

The frame was blasted and painted, all new suspension (shocks, springs, bushings, etc.). It has a 4" lift on it. Cap was painted, but needs some repair work. Engine was completely rebuilt, I probably have over $5k into the motor alone. Transmission was rebuilt (TH400). New intake, carb, etc. I have a new wiring harness (EZ) for it. Door panels and bench seat have been re-covered. It basically just needs to be put together and some more painting. I was going to do a custom dash, so I also have $500+ in gauges for it. Dash is ready if someone was to wire it all up.

Looking for offers, it's sitting in central MN today.

It's been sitting in its current state for 8 years -- since my first kid was born. I now have 3 kids, and see little chance of finishing this until they all leave. It needs to go to someone who will get it back on the road (or off road).

I also have a t18 transmission out of a different jeep if anyone is interested.

Projects are always an interesting buy. Finding the right person to take it on might take a bit of time. But there should be some interest for it, especially since it is a Honcho. Pictures will help.

I remember that build. It was a great looking truck. Too bad that the progress stalled out. It was destined to be a great truck.
I thought that I had emailed you in the last year or two about progress.


Links to pics are still up at ifsja under the username mn_honcho. (The old pics).

Yeah, I sent a pm on July 7, 2018. What do you know.

Wish I could afford it.
