My 1978 CJ, found in Bryan/College Station last November. Pure luck !! Drove her home the day before thanksgiving, gave less than $ 5 K. So far I have replaced the gray 1997 dated Bestop with a new black one, replaced the seats as they were all torn, pulled out the carpet and insulating stuff.
I was able to score some OEM steel wheels dated 1977 from a buddy, and put the pro comp A/T's on. A carb adjustment in the spring and recently replaced the original output shaft on the dana 20 t=case.
All in all I am lucky, and planning on keeping her stock. I-6/258, 3 spd T-150, all gauges work. THe heater core was leaking a wee bit so I bypassed that.
