1986 cj7. 1 owner 4550 miles

The local fire dept I'm on is looking at Selling there 1986 cj7. It is 90% orginal. Has been painted red from black also replaced the radiator. Tire are still originals. This jeep is one owner and always kept in very good condition. There is zero rust and with only 4,550 miles. We don't know what the jeep would be worth. So I'm asking for some help on finding out what to ask for it.i know pics would help I do have some on my phone that I could send to serious people. Any Other info contact me. Thanks. We're in ohio

What's the trim package? (Renegade, Laredo, Base model, etc) 4 or 6 cylinder, manual or automatic? Hardtop, soft top? Dana 44 rear? The tires would be so dry rotted by now they'd be unsafe at any speed over 20 MPH.
Sounds like a good find though

Wow, in the right market it could fetch big money. To lots of folks a bone stock Jeep is worth much more than a modified one, especially low miles and rust free like that. There was a special edition paint job stock one one up on eBay a bit ago that hit $50,000, but it didn't meet the reserve. Think that was a bit ridiculous, but hey....

So it's a manual, 6 cylinder standard trim package.. And I'm telling you the tires are not dry rotted.. It's lived inside a heated building with no direct sun light. Also there are not doors or a top no one remembers there being any when it was bought new. The dealer might of kept them because the dept did not need them.If you want pics email me and I'll Send them to you thanks. Do you guys think with out seeing pics it would go for 35,000 to 40,000?

I would say that would be high. More like 15-25k.

Now if the jeep was original paint, then I would bump that up to what you are thinking.

The last original low mileage 86 on here sold for $16,000. That was a base model, 4 cyl, with original paint with hard to find factory accessories like the SE brush guard.

Since yours is a respray, that definitely detracts from the value. Also, condition of the interior and what other original components (besides the top) may be missing.

Oh and those ridiculously high bids on that other Jeep mentioned above was for a rare Super Jeep.

Ok so do you think I should just list it on eBay? Or where else could I attract people that are looking for this kind of jeep? I need to get this thing out there so people can see it. Just trying to figure out what's my best options.

Ebay, or a really big classic car auction will bring the most money. A local guy had 2-3 low mileage 60-70's CJ's and he wanted $15,000 or so for one. A clean, rust free, low mileage CJ is a rare find.

Collins Brother Jeep has a low mileage 82 CJ-7 and the are asking $30,000.

^^ This. ^^



Obviously any ultra-low-mileage CJ is going to increase the value, particularly rust-free and well maintained. But "90% original" is in the eye of the beholder. A base-model CJ could be ordered without a top or doors, or a back-seat. I can't imagine a government agency, intending to modify the Jeep as soon as it took delivery, would want/need any of the trim packages. This one already doesn't have original paint, and will probably have been set up to fight brush fires, in addition to having all the typical fire department diamond plate screwed on everywhere, holes drilled for lights, wires run for communications, bumpers changed for practicality, tailgate removed, etc. "Original tires" (and rims?) may also be original for the fire department rather than OEM equipped. Pics will obviously answer all these questions, and a former fire Jeep has some cool-factor in and of itself. But I don't know that I'd start tossing around eBay or Barrett-Jackson record-setting numbers for any typical fire department CJ.
