$50K Scrambler, anyone?

http://seattle.craigslist.org/oly/cto/2204379524.html

I've seen this in person, and it's definitely a nice rig-but...

$50K nice?


just thought I'd share

Righthand drive and a world cab, it must have begun life as an Alaskan postal. Might help justify his price if he advertised it as such, there were only around 200 Alaskan postals ever made. Even so I've never heard of one going for anywhere near $50K.

I'll take $45,000 for mine, any takers?

People seem to think they can get what they put into their Jeeps.....this is never the case!! Well maybe if they get lucky but I doubt it. There comes a point when you cross the selling threshold.

62,000 fixing it up? Don't care how much he sunk into it, not worth 50,000. Particularly with it being RHD and an old postal Jeep.

Realistically, maybe worth something in the teens, uniqueness is only worth so much.

How come all the good deals are on the wrong side of Seattle?

I could see that for $25-30k to the right buyer. It does have a lot of nice stuff on it.
