That '7 looks a little too nice to be stuck in a junkyard.
If it's the 7 I'm thinking it is, it's a cash for clunkers vehicle. It's rougher than it looks, floorboards have lots of rust, but here are MANY good parts on it. It shouldn't have ended up there. The real PIA is that the yard can't sell it, only parts. Because it's a C-for-C, they can't sell the body, frame, or motor. So there it'll sit, rotting away. Shame. Funny thing is, the yard doesn't even know it's there. I went in asking about some of the parts on it and they claimed they don't have one. I argued with the manager for about 10min. because I kept asking about the black '86 and kept correcting me about the red '96. I finally showed him a picture on my phone and he just shrugged and said he can't do anything with it because it's a C-for-C.
Is this one at the same yard? I didn't see it there. All I found was a black '90, a TJ, and the '86 CJ. All are C-for-C. I have a major need for a tub and frame and that one would be perfect.
I envy southern junkyards, in the north, they dont keep the old stuff, infact last summer (not this one that just passed) scrap was 285 a ton to the public, most yards crushed everything they had and sent it away to be melted down. The local yards are scarse.
me and my friend picked this up about a week ago and we are starting to rebuild it. we mostly got all the body of and it will take some time to save some money and to rebuild it since it had been sitting in a garage for 22 years.
