Does anyone know a good site to be able to determine the value of a 1979 CJ-7? I have checked many sites with CJ's for sale, and the values range from very cheap to very expensive.
I am asking $13,500 for mine - which seems reasonable with the amount of restoration that I have done thus far and the condition of the Jeep. It is less than what I have in it at this point, but any less and I would rather keep it because it is running very well now!
79 cj7 in mint shape is worth about $3500 on a good day. most vehicle will only sell for what the bank will loan.you will never get 13k, I really doubt you will get 7k. you will never get what you have in it
I think $3500 is pretty low if it is restored as much as you say, however 13,500 is an unrealistic number as well. Put it for sale and if you can find someone to buy it for that price great! Otherwise you can still enjoy it while it is for sale. Its not hurting you anymore now other than insurance and registration. If you could find someone to give you 7-10k you should probably consider it if you are really wanting to unload the CJ.
Adam, thanks for the input. I have adjusted the pricing from the first one. I floated it around some with people at the local Jeep club, etc. They said that they would expect it to sell in the $10,000 range.
Correct, insurance is something like $100 for 6 months... I think a tag is around $100 per year. In other words, not costing me much at all.
That's exactly what I plan to do if I don't find a reasonable offer - use it for what I bought it for.
The only "issue" I have now is that when I'm towing it, my odometer increases
Its probably easier on you, but a trailer will be a lot easier on the jeep plus less added mileage to it as you have said. If I flat towed any vehicle very often Id have a trailer. Do you have any pics of this CJ? Post em up!
Ah, nice jeep but not to burst your bubble thats not a 13k jeep. Its not a $10k jeep either. Im just being honest. If you can get 6-8k out of it you should be happy. Otherwise keep it and enjoy it. The ammo box and diamond is not going to help with the sale for your price either IMO. Not trying to piss you off or start an argument, but just trying to set a realistic price on it.
