Twin V8 Mail Jeep On Craigslist Makes National Headlines

A custom 1983 mail Jeep is causing quite the stir across the web. This vehicle has been mentioned on popular websites ranging from Barn Finds to Fox News. It is listed on the Chesapeake, VA Craigslist for $15,000. Despite the extreme appearance, the owner claims it drives and handles well.

Two rebuilt Chevy 355 cubic-inch engines power the stretched Jeep. Both engines have a Holley 600cfm carburetor, new electric fuel pumps, and new aluminum radiators etc. A single 3 speed Chevrolet Turbo 400 transmission backs the dual motors.

The chassis is made up of multiple components from several different vehicles. The stretched frame gives the Jeep the appearance of being a mile long but it is actually the length of a compact truck.
