A recently running '79 304 for $25. Found this on CL, 5 minutes from my house in the shop of an older guy thats getting rid of stuff due to moving soon. I wanted a motor to rebuild but still be able to use my Jeep so this was a great find. I already started tearing into it.

Aussie Locker for a Dana 30 - $100. Pretty good since the running price around here tends to be $150-200

back when I had my CJ5 I found a guy on CL giving away a fiberglass hardtop and doors for a CJ5. said his buddy left them in his garage and he wanted them out of the way.

but the latest steal for me is my new 73 Commando...

rebuilt 304, t18a w/granny 1st, twin-stick dana 20, dana 44s front and rear w/4.56 gears and both locked, roll cage tied to frame and lots of homemade body armor. it had 33" boggers on it that were basically new and a 33" BFG AT that was brand spankin new as a spare. he also threw in a full Holly Projection TBI kit (used, but all there...).

the guy was asking $3k for it when I test drove it. there were a few issues here and there, so I figured I'd offer him $2500 and see what he says. I didn't even get a chance to make the offer because he texted me the next day asking me if I wanted it for $2k...

um, yes please.

Cracked my aluminum valve cover, and went to the internet to find a replacement. Found an aluminum valve cover, stock head, intake, and exhaust. All for 50 bucks. Talking to him at his house that night, I called him within the first half hour of him post on CL. Great deal and timing.

Build it, Break it, build it again.

My best CL find - A full cutting rig - 175 cf oxygen bottle, 310 cf acetylene, cart, victor torch, striker, tips and a tip cleaner, $190. Couldn't touch any one component for that total price. Required new gauges (which I had).

My favorite CL find - a 1949 Chevrolet 3800 Truck, dual rear wheel, stakebed. Was put up in a barn, and ran without hesitation upon introduction of fresh gasoline. $600 and a 19 hr round trip to pick it up in Wichita KS

My latest deal - a Fisher stereo system, in perfect condition with 2 large speakers, amp, tuner, cd player, tape deck, and turntable for the shop. Probably a $2000 system new, $40 bucks. Plus I'm about to list the tape deck and turntable on eBay for $20 each. If they sell, its a real good deal!

What I'm shooting for now - looking at a oak dining table and 4 chairs tonight for $100 and a TJ cage for $50 tomorrow. We shall see...

Got a black and decker valve and valve seat grinder with a toolbox full of stones and stuff for 500.
And then from a mechanic that was retiring I got a kwik way model f boring bar with the complete tooling set for 350 plus a hone and piles of other tools for a additional 100 (among all that was a valve spring tester and they seem to go for over 500, just need to calibrate it)
