I found a 1987 MJ with 175k miles for $2,500. Minimal body damage and no rust. Interior is shot and the motor needs a lot of tune up and seals. It does run but is not roadworthy... in the words of jalopnik "nice price or crack pipe" for $2,500?

I think it'd be a fun project to build and then sell a year or so from now to build the next one.

It depends on how much it costs you to make it look and run good enough to sell it and make a profit.

With that much wrong you'll never get your money back out of it. You might break even or a little over, but not near enough to account for your effort.

Well I offered $1500 with the hope we'd settle around $1800... so far it's been an impasse.
