Did you ever look at a Jeep CJ and wonder what it would be like if you deleted its ability to go over speed bumps, not to mention going off-road? Well, here's your answer. The seller calls it the Testabassa SR.
The work here seems to be well done, but we question the project's intent. For those morbidly curious, the seller has provided a video of this beast in action. There's no doubt this is oddly appealing, but is it worth $49K or more?

As the seller says, this is truly one of a "kink." Despite aggressive tread, there's no off-road ability here.
It's still unusual up close.
In case the driving setting is too high, the air bags let this sit even lower.
Rear is, well, basic.
This beast appears to feature a full set of guages and perhaps the tallest shifter we've seen.
Seating area is as spartan as one would imagine. Center console looks a little "wood shop", but it works. For anyone wondering, the squiggles on the metal surfaces are likely what the builder would call "grinder art."
Here's the SBC with Edelbrock dress-up items. If well-built, the 420HP claim isn't completely crazy, though dyno results would be interesting.
This Jeep is truly one of a kink, a beast, a monster. It gets more attention than anything also on the street.
Frame and chassis are from a Jeep Willys 1975, this car doesn't need a smog check. Street legal.
