Depends on who you sell to. A non-car guy is going to see that rusted tub and think your car sucks. I would check <a href="http://www.ebaymotors.com" target="_blank">www.ebaymotors.com</a> for similar cars, but my guess is $1000.

A site I like to check is <a href="http://www.traderonline.com," target="_blank">www.traderonline.com,</a> you can specify a nationwide search or just within your area to see what comparable jeeps are going for. The regular "auto trader" section only goes back to 1982, though, so you may have to try the "truck trader" or "classic car" section to find any 1976 models. Also, Hemmings Motor News (www.hmn.com I believe) is an option. I like e-bay, too, but unless you check the "going, going, gone" section, you don't know what the final bid was.

You may find some values, but what you actually sell it for when it comes to that, largely depends on who the audience is at the time. You may get some people willing to buy it for parts for like $500, or you may get more than $1000, if someone sees it that is looking for just that exact Jeep, and doesn't mind going through it, but will pay more than normal to get that particular one.

Jeeps are somewhat hard to figure, price-wise, especially the older ones. They are worth whatever someone is willing to pay, which is USUALLY, almost always, more than any Blue Book you will find. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

Well,
I will tell you this. I bought my 75 cj5, 304 V-8, about 5 years ago. The blue book was $900.00 but the guy was asking $3500.00, My banker said to jump on it. He said you cant go by any retail value estimator. You just have to give the guy what he wants for it if you want it. I hav'nt regretted it since, I love it. Even though I had to totally rebuild it about 5 month's after buying it.

I have a 77 CJ7 right now that is an auto and is completely rebuilt frame up. UI have been offered 7000 for it but being a jeeper i couldn't sell it. But if everything else is in good shape minus the body you would likely get around 1200 for it but most wont pay for that much. Most people want something cheap. But if the body is rusted to death then you will most likely have a fellow jeeper buy it since he know what it could be

I just bought a 77 CJ7 with a 304, auto, quadratrac, 65000 orig miles, rust free, hardtop, Levi edition. This one cost me $6800 but I think it was well worth it. I have put another $1000 in it (soft top and other misc). I agree, it's worth what someone will pay you for it.
