New to me jeep

Been wanting one since I got my license 13 years ago- let me know how I did- 78 cj7 with a tj body and ford 302 engine- it was all hooked up except for the power steering pump, clutch/brake assembly and master cylinder- spent 2 days putting it together and $100 for clutch/brake assembly from a wrangler and its running- problem right now that it is geared for mudding- what something like this worth- has no dash heat ac or any instruments but I can do that!!

That's a TJ tub and front clip. Given the amount of work involved to put it on a CJ frame, if it was done right, it appears you have a solid rig there. Any details on what axles are under it? Transmission/transfer case? As with anything jeep it's only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it and the location/condition play the largest part in pricing.

I believe Dana 30 in the front 20 in the rear- it's got a 4 speed manual tranny- here's with the fenders and new top installed

One thing to note from your last picture.....the body mounts at the very back appear to have been eliminated. If it were mine I'd put those back in before you go beat on it.

I've never seen that done - swapping a TJ body/front clip onto a CJ. I've seen the opposite - CJ front clip onto a TJ. Usually the goal is get the classic look (CJ) with the new amenities, e.g. rust-free, fuel injected, disc brakes... No clue on value.

That's exactly what I was thinking, it's not a great picture but I would guess a AMC 304.

Somewhere out there, there's a 78 CJ7 with a F.I. 4.0. Your Jeep creates balance in the Jeep world. I've not that done - a TJ body on a CJ chassis. Post some more pics and details.
