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!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย 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!!

    Itโ€™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! Iโ€™m guessing it may be easier to sell in spring though!!

    Iโ€™d love to buy it, but not in the big life plan right now ๐Ÿ˜

    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.ย 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.

    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.
