Pretty original, OG paint, with a little 30 year old touch up, very very little rust, good seats, brakes, too has holes and I bought a patch panel with sunroof!! 🙂  tranny, gas heater works but needs tinkering…rebuilt the original engine at Painters a half dozen years ago, stopped driving it because it seems like the motor is about to loose a bearing!!

    It’s definitely a good one and lovely Patina; I checked it out a fair bit when I was there. Prices on TS are pretty strong! I’m guessing it may be easier to sell in spring though!!

    I’d love to buy it, but not in the big life plan right now 😐

    Do you guys think I need to rebuild the original motor to sell it? Throw in a runner motor with the deal????

    Maybe build some shelter. Our sun and snow is a killer. I think the sun does more damage here than the moisture.

    Seams like a running driving fair condition one easily pulls $6-$8k.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Would certainly sell better if it ran and had no issues!

    Drop a couple grand and loose a couple months if it isn’t ready for summer driving.

    Yeah, maybe I should throw in the runner Motor I got from Andy and include the original for the nerdy guys 🙂 but Damn! That means I’m gonna spend money and time to make my car a driver again and when it rolls I’m not gonna wanna sell it!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    The idea of KCW doing up a Thing… interesting. Wondering if the JJ would bite, and how long it will take… Be the best one out there… Give me a call Rusty, 254.493.8074

    I think there was a Thing at the shop for a while, but the owner just never pulled the trigger to go for the full build ?

    Yeah we started a thing project in like 2010. Did a bunch of custom work, got it to the point of being ready for sand blasting and paint.

    While waiting for the next phase, it got left outside in a snow storm, I posted a picture, the owner got pissed and took it home to southern CA. That was the last I’ve heard of that project.

    Kind of a weird deal…but whatever.
