CJ3B Value ???

I was told about a CJ3B that could be bought, don't know what the owner is asking yet. I do know the body is very rough and rusted, all running gear is supposed to be there, the engine is stuck. That's about all I know. What's a fair price in this condition?

Forgot to mention, I do have a price in mind that I'm willing to spend and it ain't much just curious what everybody else thinks. The guy may want me to make him an offer, I just don't want to insult him with what I'm thinking it's worth.

Depends on how rusty, condition of the tranny, etc.
For the picture I formed in my mind, $500 tops.

Depending on how bad the engine is stuck, you might be able to free it by pulling plugs and putting some good penetrating oil down onto the cans, it may soften the rust enough you can break the pistons loose by hand cranking the engine... I know many who have done this successfully.

Good luck, keep us posted...
