I have a chance to buy a 1982 Jeep Scrambler. It is in Great condition. The motor is not running right. The owner just wants to get rid of it for 15,000. What are your thoughts?
I own 3 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. I just thought it would be Cool to put up a picture of my 1998 Street legal Military M998 Hummvv.I have always admired them from a distance, but would probably never buy one as either a daily or casual vehicle. Just as I would never again buy a single cab PU. Just no room.
If it fits in you budget and you have a place to keep it inside, go for it. If I had $15K laying around, I probably would just to protect it. There weren't many to start with and one in good condition is quite a find. Even if you are not a Jeep guy (from your avatar).
6 out of 40 Scramblers were sold under $15k since 2016 on Bring a Trailer, there rest above that amount and then some, so even though for those of us that like a deal, $15k is probably decent for a rig in that condition, especially if you can wrench and body work on it yourself. But us being us looking for a good deal, start a little lower and see what they say. My buddy sold his in worse shape than this 3 months ago for $21k.
