Found a cj6 whats it worth

I have been driving by this farm for the last 14 years staring at this old jeep with a weird cab on it and about 6 years ago I stopped to ask if it was for sale and the old man yelled at me and said no...leave....long story short he passed away and she said she would sell it....it has a half cab with a meyers sticker on the inside. Its all there but has been sitting for 25 years (he parked it in 85 when the brakes went out I want it but don't know what its worth. Any ideas? The frame is in great shape and the floors are completely solid with very minimal rust on it

Anything that has sat for 25 years is worth next to nothing. You WILL have to replace every component assembly that needs to move.

That said, I would be racing you to her porch to bid on it.

There are some things you will learn while holding a cat by the tail that can be learned no other way...

I had number 4xx. The first few had left over military frames, this one should as it's only about 100 before the one I had. Make an offer and go from there. Being one of the first ones, I would hate to chop it up, they have some history.
