I have a serious question /o/
I'm looking around to buy my first vehicular device and I stumbled across this turd for $900. the guy lives in middle of no where and considering the factors I feel like that price could come down a bit. anywho, should I even go and look at This turd or not and if so what do I look for and what should I pay?
it's a 75 jeep mail truck (CJ5 with 2 wheel drive and right side steering. it has the AMC straight 6 in in and an automatic 3 speed transmission.) I'm not looking to restore it or anything. most likely gonna chop the roof and paint it olive drab like a 40's willy. what do???

Oh you thought i was serious
Make a deal with him
Runs - 800
Doesnt - 300/400
Take a look under the car check how much rust is on the chassis and if theres any oil spots under it, if youre not a good mechanic bring a friend who is who will give you a good rundown on the condition of it as a bargaining tool
I had one of those at work as a "hack"- i.e. drive around the place for assignments.
Drafty. Crude- like forklift-tier controls. Rolls EASILY- had it up on 2 wheels despite being careful with it.
ok. I'm pretty good with checking them out but is there something in particular that goes out on them? like I know Cherokee always have transfer case seals go out. also, why should I chop the top? I've seen chopped ones and they look just like CJs. does it affect the integrity of the truck?
I mean this is my idea of what to go for. but is the main reason for no chop the fact that they're rare?
