Jeep runs and drives well. It has had some body work done on it but it is very solid. Tires are good with omly about 30% wear by my estimation. All of the work described in the bullet points above has been done since I have owned it. I cannot speak to the life of the Jeep prior to my ownership.Electrical system works but could use some work to run wires and install gauges. I have included pics of the dash with the wiring that needs attention, I simply do not possess the patience. Great project jeep, all parts are here! Ready to roll for someone with the time to put in the TLC. The new parts that have not been installed are included and included equal ~$900 by themselves. All parts are here to finish her up! She's pretty bare bones...like blank canvas **please note** Mileage is unknown as the gauge has been replaced once and needs installed yet again. It's almost 40 years old, so I will not begin to speculate. Engine is from a 1984 Jeep, and is a 4.2L straight six. Fun summer time cruiser already...
