1987 YJ, hardtop and hard doors, original paint and stripes

3-spd auto, rebuilt 8k ago

Spent it's first 10 years in Florida, thick undercoating underneath

Have old receipts, bikini top, soft half doors with the wrong style latches,
Light bar (no lts)

Body in good shape for the year, replaced front floor pans, fenders are rusty and some filler in the old side flare holes.

Will need patch/ repair work at RR spring hanger eventually

The Good: Weber carb runs good, started fine all last frigid winter

Drove to Alpena last year, 5 hr issues. Just takes a while running 65mph with no overdrive. Took the kid to Fenton back in September, sat in traffic for the Ren Fest, turned around and came back after 2 hrs in slow crawl traffic, he wasn't happy.

Good starter Jeep or base for your next project

The Bad: Stated rust issues

Glasspack muffler is noisy inside

Blower motor is a little noisy

Will need some tires soon

Could use a posi-lok for frt axle, vacuum isn't working right @ case

Will need a couple seatbelts for the back and driver's latch assy.

Had a lot of plans to do things to it, had some issues come up and I need a better daily driver ( in the garage, need money to fix)

Can send more pics from phone on request, PM me....
