1977 CJ-5: Good buy or no?
I'm looking at a white 1977 CJ-5. Has a clean interior all throughout. Racing style seats. Newly rebuilt AMC 304. New seals on the transmission. New u-joints. 3 speed manual. New soft top, and the original hard top is included. New tires. Redneck ram power steering kit. I believe it has aftermarket shackles and suspension that sits it up higher. The problem is that there is some rust on some parts of the undercarriage but it could be only surface, but it was hard to tell. It lacks a heater core and A/C. Also, I don't know the mileage on the Jeep prior to the rebuild. The guy's asking $5,000, but I'd like to not spend that same amount in repairs, and I need something that's somewhat dependable. Is that a good buy?
