CJ5 purchase

Hi all...
Would like some opinions. Close relatives have purchased this Jeep..Jeep CJ5 1970.. for $5800.
It's solid with only some surface rust around the hinges here and there. The under floor tool box is even solid and intact. Supposedly was restored about 10 yrs ago. Runs strong and sounds good, but has some steering play, needs an alternator and probably an radiator rebuild.
Came with a new and complete wiring harness still in the box and I think a new voltage regulator. Also any other extras mentioned in the ad.
So what do you all think? I have no qualms about the Jeep for a nice toy. Just not so sure about the price they paid, as this is surely not the end of it and hopefully it won't be a money pit as time goes on.
Not so sure about these NADA values, so we seek and do value your input... 1970 Jeep Corporation (AMC) CJ5 Jeep Universal 4X4 Prices, Values & Specs | NADAguides

The link to the CL ad has been deleted. So, without more information, I would say that if they think they got a good deal, then they did.
