    So a neighbor (a few blocks down) I never met before catches me today in the driveway and says "I got this old Jeep". We've all heard that before. So he shows me a picture and Its an Early CJ V6. I have a bunch of photos to post. I was hoping to score an OD and I might have bought it if it had one. He would take $800 I think. Tub has some rust but it is very solid for a '66 sitting outside. Tailgate looks great. Has original seat brackets I think. And the Seats!! have you ever seen these with a "CJ" embossed into the seat? Hat chanels had some rust but not awful. the windshield frame is bad and the hood hinges are rusted gone - never seen that before. The hood isn't bad. He said it was "ran when parked". I believe him on that one as everything look complete in the engine bay.

    Those are aftermarket seat covers with the CJ embossed from the late ‘70s. A girl in my high school drove daddy’s restored CJ5 with those seat covers.

    No title but that’s not a problem with an antique in Florida. DMV will give you a new one.

    WOW VA would have your head on a chop block for trying to get a replacement title without an original from the owner. It truly is nearly impossible.

    In Michigan that would be worth 2-3x the asking price easily.

    I had to check the distance since we’re both in Florida. 738 miles and 10 1/2 hours one-way. That Jeep couldn‘t be much further away in the same State.

    You’ll be lucky to make it that fast. Took us over 9hrs recently to get to Naples.

    I'm seriously thinking about getting this. I don't really need it but I have some leftovers to make it a decent wheeler.

    Let me know. I’ll be happy help you get it loaded. You should do the Vice Grip Garage thing , get it running and drive it 200 miles home with no brakes.

    Looks like the HD fan blade on that 225. 6 or 7 blades (I forget) vs the standard 5 blades. Must be a custom fan shroud. Never saw one like that on a JEEP.

    Looks like some brake work is on the docket but that's to be expected. 500 would be a real nice price. 8 wouldn't be horrible if it's a project for someone. Almost looks too nice to be just a parts vehicle.

    Buildflycrash, is this jeep still for sale? I'm across the bridge from you and looking for a parts donor.
