I took a plunge this week and bought a 1980 CJ5...well, more like all the pieces in a basket, if you will. I think the pictures kind of tell the story but here is a quick rundown:
Original body, fenders, hood, frame, etc. All is in very good condition, considering.
New GM V6 and tranny, just sitting on frame.
Soft top (original it appears, but looks like it will crumble when picked up).
Doors are there.
Grill and dash in excellent condition.
Original seats but one is pretty shredded.
Lots and lots of parts in boxes...I have no idea if it's all there until I get it back to my shop, pulled all apart and inventoried.
Guys, I haven't hardly turned a wrench in 40 yrs. I bought a '95 YJ a couple of months ago and it's "ok" but just really isn't what I wanted so I'm selling it and tackling this. I have Jeep friends here locally to help and I'm sure I'll be asking questions here in the forum also.
Hopefully not a bad deal for $1,200...heh.
Here are a few pics of how she sits now.
