Improve to sell
So I'm eventually going to sell my 1974 Cj5, but I want to find out if theres anyway to increase its value before I do so.
The reason I want to sell it is that as I was doing research I found that it has the original AMC 304 V8 and 3-spd transmission and xfer case. And so, this I figured, would be an excellent vehicle for somebody to restore and is not something I have the time to spare for. I want an offroad vehicle that I can modify any which way I'd like to as well.
It has its issues, though nothing major. I've attempted to trouble shoot the wiring harness for a headlight issue and I located it to the switch, I was reconnecting the connectors to the switch (the knob is glued to the switch so I couldnt take it off without destroying it) and I accidentally touched and shorted a wire, the kicker is that now the headlights work although they turn on and off when you switch on and off the brights. Plastic speedometer gear in xfer case is worn and barely works, very small fuel leak in the top of the tank so minimal fuel lose and easy to repair, drivers seat duck taped, tub floor needs new liner, alternator has a shard missing but doesnt affect operation, fuel gauge is faulty (probably gummed), wiring harness just looks like crap, steering links pop when turning through certain points, fog lights dont work havent been able to figure out why.
The good. Runs like a champ, the engine was rebuilt before my grandpa gave it to me and has probably just about 4,000 miles on it (I have no idea how many miles the jeep actually has because the gear's worn). Transmission has very smooth clutch and shifts with no slip when fully engaged. Xfer case has the 4H, 2H, N, 4L and all work. 33" BF Goodrich, alluminum rims I believe. No cancer from what I've seen, I'll probably inspect and clean it further soon. D.U.I distributor. Original drum brakes on all axles, replaced the shoes recently and the flexible lines also flushed and bled the systems with all new fluid. Original carb. Power steering.
Let me know what you guys think I can/should do.
