I haven’t paid much attention to old CJ values lately, is $13k reasonable for this?
I'd rather not the 'glass tub but it's certainly better than rust. Love they kept the snorkel cut hood though. I can't pay five figures for a Hurricane 4, but it seems clean. But I'm also more of an AMC Jeep fan with the later CJ-5 than the Willys and Kaiser stuff (at least to own).
@just-jeepin My dads brother was bedridden with polio for his adult life but that didn't stop his hankering for a Jeepster. So these have a soft place in my heart.
I figure its legit as the pictures match the location,. It looks like the pictures were taken last summer. My bet is it is an estate sale. I am not put off by the engine substitute. A straight Chevy 6 looks like a good match. At least it isn't an iron duke4 or a small block.
@civicwagonengineer Bingo. Our local parking cops used a Liberty, which was the replacement for an XJ. They now have an AWD Fusion, which seems like a down grade. They idle probably a full 8-12 hours a day.
@just-jeepin The color is correct, but it's also an auto and the low mileage combined with old age is concerning. Despite that, my BAT estimate is that it will sell for something close to the purchase price for an equivalent new JL.
@just-jeepin I used to have a fleet (5 cars, 1 pickup and 3 motorcycles), that filled my driveway, garage and shed. At some point it all became very time consuming, with maintenance and repairs, not to mention a big drain on my savings. Sure, I enjoyed each and everyone of them, but it stopped making sense when my entire weekend was dedicated to their upkeep.
