1989 Jeep Wrangler Value?

I am looking at buying a 1989 Jeep Wrangler in fair condition with a 4.2 and manual transmission, Can someone tell me a rough estimate of what it is worth? Kelly blue book only goes back to like 1991. Thanks.

i'd say somewhere around 2500 if it's fair. 6cyl prices are a little higher but it's carb'd so you have to weigh that option in as well.

The guy is asking 1500 for it, he did say it needs a diode or something, he said without it the jeep will run a little rough at highway speeds. Anyone know what hes talking about? I know nothing about carb vehicles.

diode????

a 4.2 barely has ANY compter crap.... let alone any diodes....

sounds like it needs a new carb... which will be common for a 4.2 if it has the carter.. chekc the frame area around the shackles, check the body along the bottom of the door, lift the carpet if it has any, the floors may be rotted out.......

oh ya it will have a ax5 prolly... .expect to replace it as well

does look pretty clean tho....

for 1500 its prolly not a bad buy... expect to replace the carb, maybe the trans depending on what your doiong with it..

the 4.2 is a solid engine ONCE its running good, but that takes some patience and time and money...

be a good starter for sure

Bought an 89 a little over a month ago in Duncan BC Canada for 3000. Good/fair condition.

Like others have said. Check the frame for rust. Judging by the the pics it looks like it could be a good deal (assuming the frame is solid.) Considering it has a hard top and full doors you could part it out and get most of your money back. In my area the full doors would fetch $500 and the hard top would also fetch $500.

$1,500 is a very fair price, if it's not falling apart from rust.
