100% 1965 Jeep Willys CJ5 Value?

I could use some help with pricing my 1965 Willys CJ5.
It is 99 % rust free, a little sureface rust here and there.
3 speed on floor, shift fine.
100% complete
Original motor-rebuilt 2000 miles ago.
77000 miles on ODO.
original blue paint is still on the inside - outisde has been camo'd
Complete origainal factory hard top and doors
Decent tires.
All numbers match and has a good title.
original paint is still on the tool compartment under pass seat.
This was stored inside most of it's life.

This jeep is just about 100% could use a paint job but that's about it.

I would really like a CJ2A so I am thinking of selling it. Kind of hate to because I will not be able to get a 2A as nice as this one. but that's what I'm after.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

the market is terrible right now.

I just saw a really nice '61 with 37K original, restored to original color, f head, pto winch, and ready to, offered for 5.5K. In the pics it looked really nice.

the hardtop is a plus, the camo paint is a huge minus obviously.

often EZ off oven spray with green scrubby pads will remove all but original paint on really old lacquer'ed cars, then compound and polish original paint, of course this requires testing, a bit of the shakes and commitment to see it though.

I'd keep it, IMHO older jeeps that are stock(ish) wont fetch more antiquey prices for about 10 more years, more attrition and shifted collector interest needs to happen, such as when the world gets tired of 80,000$ Chevelles.

In my mind the words "100%" and "some surface rust" and "camo paint job" do not mix. You can either have a pristine original condition low mileage Jeep that is 100% or you can have a decent condition Jeep which has some flaws and some serious negatives (camo), but you can't have both.

^^ X2.

post up a few pics though, so we can help you a bit more.

from what you've stated (and based on the limited info) I'd keep/build the 5
