I paid $2000 for my '76 Renegade. New paint job, seats, Alpine stereo with iPod adapter. Hard top, no soft top. Tires were newish, and interior was good. a little bit of rust on the drivers side floorboard, which I need to replace.
Had a 2 bbl Holey conversion done. No power steering or brakes. Also, just found out that the gas tank leaks. Need to get that looked at tomorrow.
Engine (258) is in good condition, so is the tranny (4spd manual). Steering components needed to be replaced, which is expected for something this age.
Just providing this information so you have something to compare it to. Also, I live in Colorado, where older Jeeps command a premimum.
Hope this helps.
