He had pulled it apart because he heard a noise from the engine and before he could put it back together he passed away. It has NO rust on the body or frame and has been sitting in her garage for the past 15 years untouched. All the parts are there engine, trans and transfer case are pulled out. She is looking for $1,000 for it. Any thoughts on if it is worth it or not.
Im not a Jeep guru, but for a $1000 and low miles Id say take it. Its a classic Jeep, enough said. Check out JP magazines June and August 2011 issues, they do a build up on a late 60's Commando. The August issue builds up the original 225ci Dauntless V6 engine.
