Restored Jeep Prices - Ballpark?
In recent conversation with "Senior Management," she mentioned (in front of a witness, I might add!) that someday owning a restored MB/GPW might be "kind of fun, for a summer drive around". Where I come from, this constitutes "permission!"
I know enough to know that doing a restoration myself would be a lot like building my own airplane: I could do it, but the "getting there" wouldn't be pretty, in the least, and take a lot more years than I would like to spend.
So, that leaves me with looking for an already-completed restoration. I've done enough research already to understand the different levels of restoration and am even in mind that an M38 or M151 might be a reasonable alternative.
Any thoughts what are good "ballpark" prices for already restored and road-legal iterations of these beautiful babies are these days? I've looked a couple of places and they seem kind of all over the map.
Thanks for your advice, I need to start a "GI Jeep Fund" and it would be nice to have an idea.
