Hey guys happy to be here on the forums. This is my frst post, so its nice to meet ya all. I am a beginner with Jeeps and while I don't know squat about working on em, I love em to death and managed to collect 3 at one point.
So I'm just going to jump right into it.
I've got a 1968 CJ5 with 3speed and a Buick V6, in already INCREDIBLE condition sitting in my garage undergoing a very slow restoration. Its a sin to keep it locked away in my dungeon like I am, so I'm toying around with the idea of selling.
I was hoping you guys could either tell me what you think shes worth in her current state or give me the motivation and KICK in the rear that I need to get her out on the road again.As for photos, I tried to get into every little nook I could. Some photos I don't even know what I'm lookin at to be honest. Be forewarned I took 88 pictures of the thing haha.
There are also some pics of Alloy wheels, BFG All Terrains, Shrockworks rocksliders, and a SmittyBuilt front bumper for an 06 TJ which are also sitting in my garage but just disregard those they have nothin to do with the CJ.
It has around around 87thou on the clock(unknown it its rolled over or not) very minor rust as you'll see in the photos, turned over and was strong enough to idle about 2 miles including up one nasty hill but stalls when you do pretty much anything else, and as I soon discovered afterwards a serious oil leak(I suspect the main seal I believe its called. between the motor and trans). I have all the guts for the interrior for it and I'm actually finding more everytime I poke around down there. I'd really like to get a value on her if only for insurance reasons.

Oh and if you guys want to nab the Support our Troops picture I have up there, God bless, go right ahead.
I also tossed in one more pic of a Jeep under a tarp as a teaser for ya all. i'll get into that one down the road. Its my pride and Joy.
