Value of a a nearby jeep I'm interested in.
258 engine with automatic trans. 30 thousand on engine and 140,000 in all 1989 jeep
Sahara comes with hard and soft top as well as hard and half doors. Appears to have
some rust and paint damage. interior seems to be in good shape. However needs 4 new
tires. Seller is asking for 3500, your thoughts on price.
Based on all of the info, you provided (assuming the replacement/rebuilt engine is in condition and runs)...(I wouldn't consider buying it personally) BUT if I were, I definitely would NOT pay more than $1,000-$1,200 for it. You got to replace ALL 4 tires at approx. $100-$150 or more each for GOOD tires + deal with the paint/rust damage. Seller's price is ridiculous IMO...I'd keep shopping around, if I were you!
opps..meant to say if engine is in GOOD condition and runs! Plus the color is a blah brown too!
Man, I don't get Wranglers at all- OK- I get that they are cool and historic, and fun to drive- but they are all way overpriced, as transportation- I guess this makes them toys for people with too much money- too bad, I'd like to have one, but all the posers have driven the prices up on all of them even the worst ones- like this one- that's about as cheap as you'll find one unless it is a smoldering wreck
The only thing I TRULY get is the Jeep's WWII history...it served our soldiers well...Also, it's a great off-road vehicle. I'd been a passenger in one and it was the most choppy and uncomfortable experience that I can recall. IMO, not suitable as a daily driver (unless you live in a mountainous area or the desert). Guessing that it's a hit with the surfer boys too...LOL!
