Possible purchase

I will be looking at a 1972 Jeep J2000 tomorrow morning.

304, manual, 4wd. All original, 2nd owner, 58k miles on it. Needs brake work as well as floor pans replaced, truck bed needs some sheet metal, two flares have a few holes in them. Cab is in tact, rockers, cab corners, doors and glass, all good. Frame is solid.

Anyone here know of any known problems with this vintage of the J Trucks?

And what are these trucks worth, when they are restored?

PLEASE ADVISE!

Man, I love those gauges. Been thinking about designing one for my JK using those tall numbers like that.

I checked it out...

It is going to require quite a bit of body work. Front bumper valence rotted. Drivers fender and inner well shot. Windshield lower pillar (terminus to the floor pan / both sides) rotted vertically, about 1 inch from the floor. Floor pans, rotted. Bench seat, needs upholstered. Bed sides, rotted at lower body line. Wheel wells rotted, at seams. Bed floor rotted, near wheel wells. Lower tail gate, rotted.

The blue paint, has been repainted by a backyard auto body shop. Serious orange peeling.

Overall, the frame is solid, the drive train seems to be good too. Doors, rockers and cab corners are good. I will offer $500 less than what he is asking for it, lets see if he bites.

From what I understand, CarID offers fenders and wells, along with the associated flares.
The bed, will likely be pulled and as time and money is afforded, the bed will be fully restored. In the meantime, I will install a flat bed, for running it.

It looks like my MIG will be put to the task, this winter (if I buy it)!!!
