scrap yard find- need price on a CJ5
I was at a local scrap yard getting some parts for my YJ when I saw a old CJ5.
I have always wanted one but somehow never got one.
It is an old CJ5. The body is shot, the front clip isn't bad though, the frame looks mint. No noticeable rust through or heavy rust. It has a T90 tranny, spicer 18 T-case w/p-brake on the output shaft. I think the motor is the 225 buick odd-fire. It's a v-6 anyway. The axles are much bigger looking than the 27a's on my Scout so I think they might be 44's???
The scrap yard said they don't care what it is they are only interested in scrap weight and they said it would probably be around $400-$500. Is this a fair price considering the tub is mostly all plywood and it isn't running??? thanks.
