89\' Wrangler Price
Been a while since I've been in here, but I have a question.
A friend at work is asking if $4000.00 is to much for an 89' Wrangler. Good body , no rust. New soft top and half doors, hei ignition, new holly carb., new water pump, engine rebuilt approx. 30,000 miles ago, good shape overall, I told her if it was me, I'd buy. Any opinions?

I paid $3,500 for my 93' Wrangler. Automatic, 4.0L, TLC needed. Overall GOOD condition.

With the rebuild it may not be a bad deal. Thoroughly check the frame for rust, etc.

Got to and do a "private party" price check. It should give her a good idea of what it's worth.

Would depend on other things, like the tranny. If it's a 5-speed, I'd figure in some $$$ to replace it when it goes belly up.

Also consider emissions, if they would need to pass them in your state. An altered system like that may not pass a visual, or a sniffer, depending on how the HEI and holley were installed. Could lead to a big mess for a new buyer, and big $ if they had to put it back to original.

And rebuilds are great, but if the axles and other parts have 170,000 on them, $4K might be high.

IMHO... it's $1500 too high, but then as with anything that's bought and sold, it's worth what you get/give for it!
