Car description

First of all, this is an AWESOME Jeep! You will not find another that gets you so many compliments and "thumbs up" at this price. So let me tell you why this price will not go any lower, and also why it isn't any higher:
The reasons it is worth every penny:
It has a solid running V-8. It neither burns nor leaks oil. The transmission shifts immaculately (no grinding) and the 4 Wheel drive works flawlessly. It has a brand new exhaust system to accentuate that loud, 1977 V-8 rumble that Jeep people love so much. It has a high performance ignition system. 32" tires are new, as is the spare on the back. It comes with the soft top, a set of canvas doors, the cool half doors in the picture, and a set of full metal doors. It also comes with a backseat that is not installed (seat is also a different color). It has a solid frame, which is as rare as it is important in a 42 year old Jeep. Sure, there were trouble spots in the frame when I bought it, but those have been repaired with quarter inch welded steel. That frame is as solid as a battleship now! I drive this Jeep every day. Mechanically, it is as solid as they come! Finally, it has the ORIGINAL Paint!
The reasons it is not listed at $15,000:
I love the Patina. To me, a Jeep is SUPPOSED to look rugged and ready for action. Because I love the rugged look that comes with any unrestored 42 year old vehicle, I left it that way and spent my efforts on the mechanics. YES, the body has some rust. If you find a 1977 JEEP without any rust selling for $6500, tell me where it is. I'll buy it immediately!
If you love them rough and rugged, as I do, it is perfect and ready to roll just the way it is. If you are considering doing a restoration project, here is what you'd spend money on:
-Floorpans and bed pan: What is in there is solid, but it is tacked in sheet metal. If you want it factory condition, you'll cut those out and weld in new ones. If you just want it solid...it is solid the way it is.
-Seats: It has the original style seats, but they are old and beat up. Again, it's an old Jeep. Seats without tears are for Barbie. But you'd replace them if restoring.
-Fenders: One fender has a patch on the outside, and a hole on the inside where the original horn mounted. They look rugged and awesome, but if you want fresh new ones replacements cost $250 apiece.
-Tailgate: It opens and closes just fine, and you cannot even see it beneath the big spare tire. But if you are restoring...just replace it.
Various rust spots: You see the pictures. It is no rust bucket, by any means, but there are a few spots here and there on the tub. A few hours with some fiberglass filler, and you can have it ready for paint. Again...I love the look, so I left it the way it is. If you want shiny and restored, well, that'll be your choice, as it will be your Jeep. It's a matter of taste. Remember, this Jeep is priced about ten grand below one with that work already done.
-Blower motor: It worked perfectly, until I took out the dash to try and get to the speaker. When I put it back on, the blower didn't work anymore. I must have disconnected the wire to it by accident. This you'll want to fix whether you are restoring it or keeping the Patina.
That's it. Ebay sales are, by their nature, "sight unseen," so I have taken care to tell you the good and the bad, in as much detail as I can.It's a very short list for a 42 year old Jeep. And if you are a Jeep guy, you know parts are cheap. I could do those things, slap a coat of paint on it, and easily ask 15 Grand or more. But that isn't what this Jeep is. This Jeep is for the guy who wants an extremely low priced Jeep, but doesn't want any mechanical problems. For THAT guy, this is the PERFECT Jeep! The fact that it looks absolutely AWESOME is just a bonus!
There. I have been as thorough and honest as I can possibly be. The last thing I want is for someone to buy it and expect it to be something different than it is. Compare it to a completely restored 77 CJ that will cost you two or three times as much...and it doesn't match up. Compare it to any other Jeep on the market at THIS PRICE...and it is better than ANY other Jeep you will find! You can buy this Jeep and start driving it to work on the day it arrives!
Shipping is on you. Sales are final, and money is due within 3 days. Jeep will be handed to your shipper with a signed, notarized title in the glove box, ready for you to fill in your name. It is listed locally, so it becomes yours the moment your money arrives, but not a second before your money arrives. Your money is immediately going into a new van for my business, so be sure this is the right Jeep for you before you buy!
Oh yeah, and people will ask...
Could you drive it home? I mean, I drove it four hours to Raleigh and back just the other week, and didn't have any problems. But it is 42 years old. Any 42 year old vehicle could break, so you have to use your common sense when making that decision.
