I am interested in purchasing it, but I don't know a great deal about jeeps... I was hoping someone could weigh in on what the value of this vehicle would be. I can tell it needs a lot of TLC, but I have restored enought vehicles to know that having solid starter vehicle is a major plus.
The guy also has another block, heads, rods...etc to build another engine for this jeep as well as original extra hubs, head lights and other items that goes with.
He is asking $4,995 for everything. I have no idea what one of these are worth. If someone could provide an idea on value as well as what areas of the vehicle I should look at closer, or a good web site where I could get a quick lesson on value and what to look for. He did note that it had the original intake and air filter set up on it which he seemed to think was rare and valuable. The block was craked when he got it, so he replaced that about 25 years ago with another original.
Any insight would be helpful. I wasn't looking for one, but would love to have a little piece of history to work on and restore. Another guy has a 1942 White Scout Car for sale in the area as well. I looked those up and they look interesting as well, but a Jeep would be cool.
Any comments would be appreciated. I know he has had a few lookers, so time is my enemy. Here are some pictures from the ad. I made them a little larger...hopefully they look good:
Thanks in advance:
