Ok so I just found out someone I know is selling their niner. It has 180K on it needs an e brake and a fuel pump. The body is solid tho and it's in overall decent shape. He's asking 1000 for it. Is t worth it? Especially since I just got done lifting my 5.2. The niner does have a decent dent in the hood and a crack in the rear bumper but that's it. It's dark micha in color

No rust? If it's a New England Jeep, there IS rust. Tap the front passenger rocker panel right behind the wheel with your foot and see what fun falls out.

I would definitely drive it and test the VC (Figure 8's!)

Hoods are Bumpers can always be replaced!

I would personally buy it if the VC is good and there isn't any harmful rust.

Well by no rust I ment like nothing is rotting out. Of course there's minor rust here and there but nothing too critical

for a thousand bucks it doesnt look too bad. you can pull a bumper cover and hood from a junkyard pretty cheap (depending on your area, probably under $100).
