"Well $hi@! I got it all apart and now I can't get it back to together again."

Quote from the e-Bay posting "i bought this about 4 years ago an was running at the time,has not ran since then." Maybe because you took it apart??

It's not really a rolling chassis if it doesn't roll.

You can't touch a nicely done CJ around me for under 6k. A rust bucket runs about 2k, every now and then you'll come across a great deal.

>> " this jeeps brakes are froze up meaning the tires will not turn and will need a winch or way to get up on a trailer. the way it sits now is just a rolling chassie " <<

... if the brakes are "froze up" & you "...need a winch ...", then .... (wait for it) ... how exactly is THAT a "... rolling chassie..."?

His logic is like his spelling.

It went for $800 and you can maybe feel sorry for his situation.

Good luck to him, sounds accurately described and he did not want $26,000.

For only US $21,450.00, you too can have a shot at this one. As a rare added bonus, it has 4 wheel drive and removeable face stereo! wow!!

As shown in the photos below, you also get a residential water cutoff valve, electrical tape, and some rust on the brake booster ("totally restored", of course):
"Interior color: Black

GARAGE KEPT- ONLY 7100 MILES

It looks like the seller is also throwing in a door, custom painted in back, guaranteed not to match the orange paint job. Maybe one of the other 2 sets of doors matches.

It's not a horrible looking Scrambler overall, but the asking price is not at all realstic.

There are probably some good parts there, but if you've had to takers after several months, it's probably time to start dropping the price.

heh.. the engine is "THE ENGINE IS FULL OF EVERY BELL AND WHISTLE YOU CAN THINK OF.." but it's missing the carburertor. That's an important part but maybe not considered an official part of an engine?

That's really ugly. You have to admire the seller's honesty and his apparent ability to have built the thing though. It would be interesting to know what the reserve price is, because in my opinion that's what could make it laughable or not. If the seller wants $25,000 for it, then that's a joke. $3,000 might be more reasonable.

I bookmarked that auction last week cause I was curious if anyone would even bid on it. Will be funny to see what the ending bid is on it.
