Rokjeep that could be a 327 it was an AMC motor called the Vigilante. It was a well proven motor that had been in use in the Nash rambler as a 250 cubic inch motor. It was bored and stroked to 327 in 1965 for use in the Wagoneer. It put out 250 horsepower. 1968 was the last year it was used and it was only used in the Wagoneer that year and in no other vehicle. In 1968 they started using the Buick Dauntless 350 V8 It was basically a 225 v6 with 2 more cylinders. It had less horsepower than the 327 but more torque so the seat of the pants feel with the 350 was much better and people liked it better. The 350 was available until 1970 in the Kaiser line, then was replaced by the AMC motors in 1971. The 350 was available as a special order for about half of 1971 (had to get rid of the ones on the shelves.)
The tranny would be the TH400 as mentioned above and the t-case is a 2 speed spicer 20. It is a nice t-case and is easily modified into a twinshifted case.

EVERYBODY is pro-gun, some just don't know it. When an anti-gun person is in trouble, the first thing they do is call 911 and demand that they send somebody with a gun!
