Nice restoration or 'kit' car it would seem.
The sales pitch is complete bullshit.
'Over 95% original' WITH :
"all new" wiring, canvas, brakes, depot rebuilt engine, NOS engine
parts, transmission, new body, etc.
I wonder just what 95% the owner is talking about????
86/00 CJ7 Laredo, 33x9.5 BFG Muds, 'glass nose to tail in '00
88 Cherokee 235 BFG AT's - Gone to the rust pile...

I personally think that all Jeeps of this era are overpriced because
what can you really do with them? They can't haul "stuff" like a
pickup and you can't haul people like you could with a car.
But....that's just me.
Even though most parts interchange with the Willys jeep, please
remember that this is a Ford jeep and it will probably command a
higher price. Still a lot higher than what I would be willing to pay.
It's not necessarily what you can "do" with them. It's more of what they
represent: the origins of the current Jeeps, the revolution in automobile
design, design for a specific purpose but almost infinitely flexible to
accomodate a different task, and the preservation of history. Civilian
vehicles (especially from that era) are not available with options like
machine gun mounts, positive crankcase pressure systems for fording water,
armor plating, exterior mounted pioneer tools, etc. Besides that, military
vehicles are just freakin' cool looking.
