I found a 79 CJ5 without a title that seems to be in good shape. The body looks decent, but i don't have any pictures of the frame. The tires look farily new as well. No gas tank, but he has it running off of a tank in the bed. It has the 258, 4 speed, and not sure of the transfer case. He is asking 1500. What has been your experience with owners? He knows he can't do much since he has no title (long story about it, it was a repo and no one ever claimed it). So can you negoiate alot with your sellers? if i show up with 1000 or 1200 and a trailer, you think we would move?
I plan to part it out and keep a few parts for myself.
