Seems like a good price. Are parts expensive for those? I imagine they would be.

Thats a fair price, I've seen that one listed before. Trouble is theres prolly no floorboards, motor is prolly shot, tops aren't cheap and niether are tail gates. It's always a plus to get something complete over cheap to me. I'd give the guy $700 but not to do anything but keep a few pieces for my mando and part/scrap the rest. But good find in my book.

$750 is too much but $700 is cool? The ad says the floorboards are shot, but claims the engine ran and is not seized.

By that I meant i'd buy it, but not to ever look for it to see the light of day again. By the description I took it that the motor was questionable. Most commando's have little or no floor left, so once you get past that I guess anything is restoreable.

Exterior looks good to me. Likely if I had the extra cash right now I would be on it like flies on shit.

Then I would DD it after a little work.

I guess I got burnt seeing some really crappy ones that needed a silly amount of work. Figure body, needs at least floors, wouldn't put much stock in the drivetrain, missing pieces and its been sitting in the weeds for like 8 years. It's gotta be rough up close. Somebody go check it out for us.

even for a shit box if you have one that needs parts that's a good find, the rear 1/4 panels look like they are in great shape! Wish I could have found this before I sold mine, my right rear corner was all banged up and needed the tail light bucket. Either way I'm sure justjeepsters.com has the floor panels that are needed and other parts that may be needed.
