60s Jeep with F-Head 4 cylinder

I'm thinking about getting an early 60s Jeep with an F-Head 4 cylinder. The Jeep and motor only have 33,000 original miles, and the motor has all new gaskets/seals etc. The only issue with it is it has no top, and the shifter sometimes doesn't stay in 2nd gear.

Some questions...

What is the top speed going to be, it's a 3-speed f-head?
How can I get leaded gas or an equivalent alternative?
What top hardware is needed as it has no top hardware or top.

Overall it is in good condition, everything works, no major rust, a lot of stuff redone and everything works fine. What is something like this worth?

Top speed well that depends on what jeep you actually have. Give details about your jeep and repost your question in the Cj forum.

Better to be "dead and cool" than alive and uncool.
