61 USMC Mighty Mite

It needs work.

I am selling my 1961 Jeep Mighty Mite. It is in very restorable condition and has very little rust. Possibly one of the most hi-tech Jeeps ever built, the Mighty Mite remains a little known enigma. The power plant of this little beast was an all aluminum air cooled V-4 engine. The engine was built by Wisconsin engine under contract for AMC. The 108ci engine would run on 80 octane fuel and would produce 55hp at 3600 RPM and 90 lb-ft at 2-3000 rpm. The engine drew air into the carburetors through intakes mounted on the side of the Jeep back by the cowl and often would have snorkels attached to give the Jeep a better fording depth. The engine had a mechanical fan that drew air through the front of the Jeep and over the engine while the exhaust gases were actually routed through the tubular frame and out a rear mounted tail pipe to expel the gasses from the chassis. The power from the engine was then routed through a 4 speed transmission with a "granny" ultra low first gear. Mated to the back of the transmission was a sort of splitter box to route power to the front with the flip of a switch.
