..unless you’re headed to Central Ohio’s National Trail Raceway, that is.

A 575hp small-block Chevy under the hood of this rear-drive Jeep has to make this one of the most terrifying cars to appear on the pages of CarOfTheDay.com. The short wheelbase, light weight, and minimal rollover structure will make this a scary handful to drive in anger.

It’s on eBay in New York for $13,500 or offer. 1977 Jeep CJ-7 red front quarter1977 Jeep CJ-7 interior 1977 Jeep CJ-7 red rear quarter
