1967 cj5

Got an '87 Wrangler. Can't get enough of it.
Now people are talking to me about the Jeep and even offering to sell me theirs!!!!

I've got a chance to buy a '67 CJ5. The guy told me it had electrical problems, so some of his friends decided to rewire it.

Long story short, doesn't run.
He wants me to make him an offer, but I'm not sure what I'm getting into.
Been sitting for a while, covered in leaves and whatnot.

Any ideas about a fair price?
Not much info, I know. He's sending me pics tomorrow. I'll post them for better price reference.

But, any ideas..,,

Where is it? The body and frame are probably shot as are most CJs that have been sitting. The bodies went galvanized so they get pretty thin...

Sitting in a backyard in smalltown Hawkinsville ga.
Thought it would make a nice project.
He says it was running about a year ago. Let his kids play around the property in it.

Are you good with working on your own Jeep ? do you fix everything on it ? First thing I would do is to check really good for rust. I made the mistake of buying an old Jeep with a ton of rust. Check the frame for rust and cracks around the steering box and leaf spring mounts and body mounts. Check the body in all crevices, especially wheel wells. There isn't much in the way of wire on those, if they tried to rewire it and couldn't do it, somethings wrong. It should have been pretty easy. Check the gas tank for rust. I do love old iron but make sure # 1 , you can afford it, #2, you can do all the work your self or go back to # 1. I can tell you it is very satisfying to have one of these old Jeeps on the road. Good luck ! let us know what you do and don't forget, we love pics. Here is my old iron

Totally depends on what you want to do with it......DD...probably not....... fix up rig....yeah.

Make sure you FIT in it first of all.... they can be SMALL for larger framed people.

ANY of the problems mentioned can be fixed, but if you are not inclined, not able, nor financially capable..... avoid.

I picked up a CJ7 3 years ago for $1000 that has less than 60K miles on it.... inline 6, 4 speed, hard top and hard doors.......BUT.... it is a project..... not a driver.
"For Gawd's sake, put a RELAY in there or you could burn the whole damn Jeep to the ground" ...this quote brought to you by people who do not understand the law.....Kirchoff's, Ohm's, or Faraday's.
Violation of KISS shall always ring false in TRUE engineering. - ME___
Had 75CJ5, 89YJ, 93YJ. Have 82CJ7 & 95YJ____Not one burnt yet due to lack of relays.
