1986 Jeep CJ7 value

Asked by Ronthomas611 Jan 13, 2017 at 01:33 PM about the 1986 Jeep CJ-7

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

Hello all. I have an opportunity to pick up a 1986 CJ7 for
$1500. The Jeep is in great mechanical condition , runs
well and passes inspection . It has some normal rot , but
for the most part the body is sound . I'm concerned about
the frame which has some definite rough spots , some
holes and significant rust and also rot . I'm not sure if
that's a good price considering and what the cost would
be to repair . It's a 1986 Jeep renegade 6 cylinder .
Thanks for any advice .

A photo of the rust would have been nice, but based on the information, If you need to buy a new frame they run about $2,000.00., body work and a new paint job $4,000.00. the truck in good condition is about $7,000.00. Me with all the work, I would pass and save my pennies and buy something better...
