Smile 68 CJ5 Gotchas ?

I'm new to the Jeep thing and I'm think'n about buying a 68 CJ with the 225 Buick Dauntless V6 engine. Problem is it's a few hours away and I'd like to know what to look for and what questions to ask to make sure it's not hiding too many "gotchas". (I'm sure it has a few, what jeep doesn't!?)

Thanks for any advice!

well, like any older CJ, Look for rust. area's below doors, floor boards, check the frame for rust area's. make sure the 4wd works. how much is the jeep?
