It is a better deal than mine that I picked up for $1500 in NJ (although mine probably should have gone to the scrapyard instead of under the knife)

On a side note though - is that a bottle of urine in the driver's foot well?

Looks like it might be an original Laredo. It has the clock. door panels, console, steering wheel, grab bar, and chrome grill. To bad its so far gone.

I love the toggle switch mounts with zip ties under the dash.

I don't $1500 is that bad. Little buffing and bondo and you could get $50,000 for it

Fixed.

I agree, though, you could part that out and make your money back.

Grill cover: $100-200.
Grab bar: $150
Laredo dash with gauges: $200+
Center console: $100+
Top: $400+
Doors +/- panels: $400+
Laredo steering wheel: $100+

And that's just the parts that are simple to remove. Those seats are junk Rugged Ridge, though.

How about this one?
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Will...00885801331%26

No title or engine for $1375 and the guy says it would be perfect for a rat rod project.

I'm inclined to think it's not a bad deal, especially since you could probably get it for less than he's asking. For a person who is looking for a real project, it looks like that Jeep has enough to work with.

Here's a pic from the auction:

.
As a mobile lab for HUTCHMETH (tm)..I don't need no stinking title. Besides, it's cheaper than blowing up a trailer every few months!

I agree, could be a good project and not all states require a title for older vehicles...

Okay, yeah, I missed that part! That does present a potential big problem. One might have to pair this with a titled pile of rust and try to get a salvage title or something.
