    Apart from the overly elaborate firewall wiring someone did a nice job on that.

    No-wheres near worth the money of course, who buys an old jeep from a dealer at dealer prices?

    Yeah that firewall wiring. I just don't understand that. Looks like you accidentally drop a wrench on it and short everything out.

    Is that a painted over patch on the rockers? Absurd money and the can location does nothing for me. Plus those wheels :sick:....

    Tennessee and Phoenix, Az aren't very close to each other on my map. Also, more than $1000 less money in Phoenix. This one could be a scam, only with retail-plus price.

    My guess Craigslist bought it from the other guy, painted the motor and fixed wiring and now wants a few $k more

    If he gets 16k for it then I'm definitely selling my '59. I have a kid to put through college next year.

    Good sleuthing. That ad says it “was purchased from a dealer in Arizona about two and a half years ago”...so that dealer ad is really stale. Nothing to indicate it was sold at all.

    I don’t know anything about Bring A Trailer...could there be a reserve price not listed? Be funny if it went for the current price, which is $3100. :rofl:

    They say there is a reserve but it is not listed and don't say if it has been met.

    It got up to $8,800 on Bring A Trailer but didn't meet the reserve so no sale. If that one is worth $8K then mine should be worth 10 or more. Nice to know.

    That's funny and sad about the auction results. It's nowhere near worth the asking price. What a money hole. Poor owner. :lol:

    No kidding. The paint is working against it--what an ugly pea green, or puke. Reminds me of scenes from The Exorcist.
    Then too is the odd placement of the Jerry cans and tools. Too much like a G.I. Joe toy.

    Ugly, monstrous bumper whose added weight is certainly a bear for that poor 4-banger.
