All the factory control arm mounts have been cut off, and there looks to be a bad rust near the tailgate hinges....

What a shame. Inca Gold is one of the rarest of Jeep Wrangler colors. I think it was available for about 6 months.

If the price were right, it might be worth it to save it. It would take a good amount of work and possibly $$$. Looks like the transmission pan has been lowered, and the insert is what rusted.

I have only ever seen one that color in the "wild". It belongs to a friend. He bought his used as well, but around here rust is not a big issue. His is almost pristine.
