This jeep is a head turner and a lot of fun to drive.
Like any vehicle driven regularly there are a few dings and things that can be replaced, I will list everything you may be concerned about below and I will be critical
First, the speedometer and fuel gauge don't currently work, I do have a replacement unit that should work by replacing and mixing current parts.
Steel doors and full soft top have never been installed, although I have all the hardware and frame, it will need put together. I also have a family style roll bar from a YJ that needs painted and a full fiberglass hard top with a sun roof and lift gate that needs a little repair and paint. I will throw these in at the right price.
A small crack is about to form in the drivers seat and a Levi's button is missing. There are a few chips in the paint from interstate driving and a nice sized scratch in the drivers side rocker panel (photo included). Emergency brake has never been hooked up and I've not taken the time to clean up the wiring under the hood so one may want to organize that.
Shocks are older and would make a nicer ride if replaced: myself nor my wife mind the ride so it's not terrible. There is no air conditioning and I have never ran the heater, heater coil was bypassed many years ago.
Since the last paint job, I have replaced the following.
Professionally Rebuilt Edlebrock 4-barrel carburetor. All lighting and light wiring, Battery,solenoid, alternator and starter are all new along with some electrical wiring. Breather/air intake and valve covers, radiator reservoir are new along with the master cylinder. Drum brakes work great and have been serviced. Windshield is new along with a mirror and an interior matching console is included.
This is a nice jeep that you can ride from 10mph to 85mph with no worries. I had a value placed on it from a local vintage dealer and he valued it at $10k as you see photographed, NADA books it at an average value of $8,500 with a 304 or larger motor so you will not be disappointed in what you get with this purchase.
Text or call with questions, I have a short video of me starting, revving and walking around the jeep as it idles I can send you along with any additional picture requests. 304-545-0455
