Re: jeep value

Not seeing it, I asume it has the frame rust at the rear spring hangers,,,, I would probably not go look at it for 800, but it is worth what ever you have balanced with how badly you want it.

I have bought similar rough jeeps for less than 300 with titles,,, but they turned into parts jeeps.

Re: jeep value

I haven't looked at prices on old Jeeps lately, but $800 seems high for that:

- In '73 there's a good chance that it's a 232 instead of a 258.

- Even in good condition, the frame isn't much. The later CJs are fully boxed.

- A Dana 20 TX is a good piece, but there are tons of them around.

- D30 with drums isn't worth more than the cast iron value.

- A really rough '73 body is, well . . .

The only good part that seems to be there is the back axel, worth a couple hundred maybe.

Re: jeep value

I see almost nothing of value.

If you are into frame up restore it is worth $800.

NO POWERSTEERING!!! - Maybe worth something.

I switched to a manual steering because if the motor dies or you have to shut down the motor down you can still steer.
Also add a great workout.


If the frame is rusted, it might be to late for her.

Re: jeep value

ive bought similiar jeeps.. and there is no way i would pay that for that jeep.. probably around $300... if it came with a title.. and decent tires.. like stated above.. only thing worth anything would be the rear axle... and its narrow track... i guess its what you need from it... or want off of it...

Instead of leaving so fast you should have asked him where he gets his drugs. [img]images/graemlins/neener.gif[/img]
