I've been looking to buy a cj jeep for awhile just for a project to fix up and ride around in - i live on a farm so it would be kinda fun. Anyways I found a 1977 cj-5 for sale by my house and was wondering if the price they are asking is an ok price or what.
heres some of the info:
360 motor from a wagoneer (year unknown)
front fenders are fiberglass
little rust/bondo on the side panels beneath the doors and a little in the back - not much.
dash lighs dont work
3rd gear grinds when you put it in gear
comes with the soft top and bikini
Seats are wrecked - need replacing
all it needs to pass inspection is an emergency brake. We took if for a test drive today, it started up like a champ and everything worked perfect driving it - it went like a rocket too
The guy selling it only took it out about a dozen times off-road so hasnt been used much lately.
I know its a little hard to tell what its worth without actually looking at it, but im not all that familiar with cj's and I really dont know anyone around here that does. He is asking $2500 or BO....Im thinking he will take 2k. Can anyone give me a little advice on this - whether you think its a good/bad deal with what ive told you and/or other things i should find out before making a decision.
