Yikes! I just noticed that amp wire! I also like the stock carburetor with the chrome lawn mower air filter.


So there we were

Yep, and he's got the fuel filter in upside down.

This "completely rebuilt" '76 is up for auction again, starting at $16,000 with a Buy It Now price of $20,000:

Among other things, this Jeep features:

-Working Wipers
-Working Head Lights
-Working Tail Lights
-Working Turn Signals

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...m=160634507914

For $16 to $20K, I'd better get a newly painted valve cover and no exposed wires. Geez..

If I'm understanding the photos right, it looks like they replaced every part. Seems like the seller is also including labor in the price as well.

Granted the pitman arm, tie rod/draglink and sway bar are chrome, it looks like it's just a cover/fake leaf for the leaf springs...

My real question is why do you need coil-over shocks on a leaf sprung jeep?

Are you F*&king S@^ting me???? $60K! I need to show this to my wife to put my jeep habit in perspective for her.

Oh, and this is the kicker "Jeep was never taken off road." If I had droped $55K in suspension upgrades I sure would have taken it wheeling at least once.

I don't get it.. $54,000 for what... a low miles Wrangler which has never been off road? I could sink $5500.00 into my CJ and make it more trail worthy than that thing.

It looks like the current owner paid too much! The Jeep appears to have been modified by this place: http://www.aev-conversions.com/

This one is laughable if the seller thinks he's going to get the money out of the deal.
