2007 Sahara 1xx,000 miles blown engine

Hello all just wondering what would be a fair price for this 2007 Sahara jk project hard doors soft op only 6 speed blown 6cyl "motor knocking" a friend from work parked it about a year ago with the intentions of engines swap and never got to it his wife wants it gone...
What's it worth???
Thanks Chris

It is worth whatever KBB, Edmunds, or NADA listings say it is worth less the cost of a new engine and labor to replace it. KBB says $12k, but there are other factors: It has been parked for a year and there could be unknown problems galore.
The new engine and labor to replace would be (my estimate) about $3k. The unknown problems are, by definition, unknown. I would knock at least another $1k off and offer the owner $8,000. You still could come out on the short end.

Gotcha I was gonna offer 3k but that might be a little insulting. I want to come out ahead if I'm gonna come out at kbb price I wuold rather just save up and less all the headaches... Thanks for the input Newman!!
