Any thoughts on a price for a central Mississippi jeep?
Having just had a complete frame off restoration done over the past 3 years and replacing pretty much everything with the exception of the frame, grill, tailgate, winshield, & axles, I find the the $3k-4k laughable!
Just looking over the list of equipment, the tires, suspension, seats, & top should cover the $3k cap easily!
Thanks for the comments. I have owned many and looked at thousands, this is NOT a $3k-$4k Jeep, but with out pictures it is hard to give an estimate. (I still have the first jeep I ever bought (1980 Cj5) that I love and never plan to part with. I restored it many years ago and know the cost that comes with a restoration (time, emotions and $$).)
I have been looking for a CJ7 and/or a Scrambler to add to the collection for quiet some time. This CJ7 already has the work done, and yes it is purple, but it is not a bad purple.... I drive by this thing every day on my way home from work, will stop sometime and get a few photos for you guys.
my arugument for the 1800 is, a frame off restore adds no value to the price, its look nice but the bank doesnt have a classifcation for frame off. It has a 283, that mean the original motor was worn out so the whole jeep has miles on it. There have not made a 283 since when, mid sixty, thats a old motor, why was the motor rebuild 2500 miles ago, worn out. new transmission, old one worn out, all the body covering rinx. I see no extra value on this than one that been sitting in a yard for ten years. I see more value in one with original motor transmission and 100 k miles. think of a value that a bank would loan you money. so to me it just an average 33 year old jeep 1800
