1997 Sahara, Worth it?

I'm trying to get a buddy on here, Looks like a he has came across a great find. 1997 Sahara, 120k, 5 Speed, I-6, runs and drives, the girl (his sister) parked it after getting her new covertable Saab. The body is a little rough, its still sight unsceen. Know it needs a sway bar, brakes on all corners, little bit of rust, seals in the rear. but for $500 how can you say no. The WF knows more than I, So what do you think, well worth the investment?

pretty sure you could get $500 for a grill and doors. So I'm gonna go ahead and say that it needs to be purchased.





























Why are you still here? Go buy it. NOW!

Pretty much anything that can move under it's own power is usually worth $500, the fact that it's a Wrangler is even better. Figure out what it'll cost to get it on the road & drivable, add $500, and see if that is worth spending to buy it, if so, do it! Personally, if I didn't already have Lucy, for 5 bills, I'd do it in a heartbeat!

I'd say he got his $500 worth, he drove it home. just needs buffed, and the inside cleaned.
