    1956 DJ3A street modified

    I've had this one for quite a few years and have rebuilt it several times.
    This time will be the last, for sure.
    1956DJ3A 2 wheel drive flat fendered Jeep
    Glass replacement body.
    Original frame, boxed and integrated brush bars and roll bar
    350CID Chevy, .30 over, 10.5 forged pistons,
    Strange Engineering Dodge 8 3/4 3:91
    Muncie M20 4 speed.

    So you know I'm not your average Willys owner.

    Welcome Cahaldo!

    Very nice build! I love the side dump headers and the roll cage.

    I love it! Nice looking Rod there. The rear tires look sooo bad As@. That has to be a jumpy little bugger! The old school "Ram Intake" and big finned aluminum covers are very nostalgic looking. That has to be a hoot.

    When I was 17-21 I would street race, light-to-light. All these cool dudes with their g/f's would laugh at a rickety old Jeep- until the light turned green.
    All built by me, with noted exceptions where I got great help.

    Changing the Willys world, one race at a time.

    Welcome cahaldo. Saw your story on the other thread. You've got a home here brother. I am wondering about those flat tires. I have never, ever, seen those ones on a jeep. I mean, they go straight. And this thing, though lowered, is still a box on wheels. You must be an incredible driver. Hats off on the concept! What's it like driving comparo with a street rod?

    I love sleepers. Roll up to a light with a grocery getter, a 3/4 ton pickup, or a flat fender then leave them behind. Grumpy Jenkins campaigned an International Scout 800 in the late '60, so you never know what the other guy has until he light goes green.

    I have some fun stories from years ago. This time, it looks fast, is built tight, and is a detailed, good looking ride.
    When I was 11 I had a T Shirt with a blown Jeep with Rat Fink on it. Driving in a hayfield in a '48 Jeep with seat cushions so I could reach the pedals won me over.

    I had a chevvette, factory automatic with am radio, and a gravel driveway, at that age. God I miss those roll up windows. It was so much faster when they were down.

    5JeepsAZ.... too much! A Chevette, we called them "Shove Its". One of the favorite upgrades was to take a torch,welder and tubing to a "Shove It", and install a large cubic inch Chevrolet.
