Question 1989 YJ, good buy?

Im posting this for a friend

I'm thinking about buying a YJ.

It's a 1989, 4cyl., 147,000 miles, cosmetically ok for its age, (some dents and faded paint),the first time he tried to start it it took more than a couple cranks(carb problems?), second time it started right up.

he's asking $1500 but I'm hoping that I can get the price down some.

from this info do any of you think this is a good deal?


ps, I didnt have a camera for pictures

i got my 89 YJ for 1100. it is a 4.2L and 145k on it and pretty much everything on the jeep was replaced mechanically speaking, came with 3 tops, after market stereo setup and extra new OEM pieces for it....he was asking 1600 at first too.....

how did it run? was it driven regularly when u tried to start it, or had it been sitting for awhile?
