Hello ;Trying to post link but unable,Looking at 1981 cj7, inline 6 ,rebuild title, nice paint,listing says a 2006 tub was put on (im thinking he means yj but not sure) 36 " tires 4" lift. Report says it had minor to moderate left front damage. Owner is asking 4000 starting bid.He also says no rust. Thanks for any input
The ebay add comes up under 1981 search its blue and in OHIO
"...have put a new valve cover on it and a blow out on it."
Okay, why? and what is a 'blow out'?
"It looks like a show car."
No it doesn't.
"The tires are new and worth about 2500 bucks."
no, they're worth what someone will pay for them.
"No rust at all on the car. "
This is not a car.
"This car runs great for around town, but has never been tested for any long trips or everyday driving. It is definatly a second car toy, not an everyday driver. "
'Everyday' driving is around town for most people. A vehicle either runs right or it doesn't. If it has problems, then you need to detail those to potential buyers, or else offer such a low price that people will accept the risks.
Finally, the title is listed as "Title: Rebuilt, Rebuildable & Reconstructed" which is a big red flag. You might check your local and state laws to see what this means and why. Perhaps the thing was totaled.
I would get a close look at this thing in person before handing over any money. I would of course seek a much lower price than the guy is asking. There are a lot of questions here. It could be a perfectly viable CJ, but you need to get a good understanding of what you're getting into.
