My two cents....The owner was right, "it's a steal." In other words he'll be stealing your $$$$. I'd question a coverup "rattle can" paint job. It almost screams covering up rust or poor bondo work. If you are serious check it all for rust, etc.
There are deals to be had out there. Going to come down to how serious you are and how long you're willing to wait. I hunted for over six months for my YJ.
