1965 CJ5 value?

My friend has a 1965 CJ5 V6, all stock with less than 50,000 miles. He may be interested in selling it, and I am trying to decide what a fair price would be. I am thinking of offering $6,000, what do you think?

Yes, V6. The 225 Buick V6 was offered as an option in 1966, this Jeep may actually be a '66, or there are claims that some later '65s got the new V6 also. Any ideas on the value of this all stock, good condition '65 CJ-5?

Much depends on the condition. All stock, little rust, in my area would get ~$4000-4500 tops.
But you're in CA, and Jeeps go higher there...

What are your plans for this rig? If you plan to use it, you should know up front that both the steering and brakes should be upgraded; stock units are marginal/borderline unsafe on today's highways. And the 35A alternator barely makes enough juice to run the radio...

Lots more about these Early CJ5s at the link in my sig. Check out the discussion forums there for more...

Good luck!

Thanks for the info Lynn, I will be sure to check out the forums. I have a TJ now, and I thought that the early CJ might be a fun project, not sure if I just want to restore it or make it trail ready. Obviously, I have a lot to learn regarding the early models.

Well Bob, the Early CJ5s with V6 are great project rigs, both for restoration and for trail.
They are easy to work on, and contrary to popular belief, parts are readily available if you use a resource like the Early CJ5 forum.
I'm pretty sure we have some members in your area...
See you over there

My 69 has been a great project! The V6 option has made some parts extremely difficult to find. Not impossible just difficult. In above average shape in the southeast prices can get higher than your being asked. The earlier post was right on , condition is everthing. If it needs work be sure to consider your budget and check some parts prices.
