We'll see listing ends today. Here's a video of it after my trip. Puffs a little smoke on startup but clears up quickly.I can already sense David Tracy (the Jalopnik Jeep fanboy in question) itching to pounce on this thing. GLWS!
Alas, I'm kinda tied up fixing up an XJ Cherokee as the typical cheap, entry-level Jeep, because CJ5/YJ/TJ Wranglers with the iconic Willys-era Jeep shape have insane resale value these days. $7,500 reserve, you say? I totally believe that'll be met, given its condition, age, presumably running order, and being stock instead of modded to the gills with insane lift, 35"+ tires and all the other prerequisite mods for rock-crawling that people do to every Jeep with dual solid axles and a transfer case.
To an extent I guess but, you have to consider its no bigger than a Polaris Ranger single cab for a fraction of the cost and is street legal. I have an offer to sell it @ 6,750 not sure if I'm going to accept or clean up my listing w/ more details and list again.I think it's like anything else, you need to find the right buyer....whoever buys it is buying nostalgia.
