Looking for some advice...

Hello everyone, how's it going?

I have to sell my 1977 CJ7, have to, can't afford to keep her. Just bought her April 2010....

My question is, what is she worth? She runs strong, have had carb replaced, body is probably a B- considering the year spotty rust here and there, nothing too cancerous in critical areas, frame is an A, Welded in new floor on driver's floor, has soft top and soft doors...I have her in Philadelphia.

It's 99% stock, I love it, but need the $$, I would appreciate your input so I don't give her away for cheap...I think it's a nice jeep.

Have a good weekend!

Jeeps are like real estate, location is everything. I'm in Texas and Ive never seen a decent, stock CJ7 go over $5-6,000 (although people try to set a high price). I buy them and sell CJ7s all the time, from your description, and if you were in this area, I would set the price around $4,500 to $5,000. You could also start a little higher and negotiate down to your bottom line. If you sunk alot of cash into it, don't plan on making it back. Building a jeep is good to do if you're going to keep it, otherwise you're not really building an investment vehicle. Check on craigslist for similar jeeps to compare to. Even though I buy/sell at least one CJ a year, I still look around at prices before setting my sell price. Good luck!
