    I sent a PM asking about the Trans type.....

    I also thought 71 was the last year of the V6...is it possible it is a late 71 model and was titled as a 72?

    Looks like a 71....rear gas tank and flanged D44...if it runs and drives without huge red flags, the price is in the ballpark. I'd like $4000 a bit better, but the fiberglass top is possibly worth the $600 price difference.

    Agreed, it's a 71.
    I spy an HEI and a Holley 4bbl too.
    The fiberglass top is nice in cold weather but has terrible ventilation for summer.

    She's a peach by east coast standards from what I can see. Show up 4 and take it home.

    I'm curious about the area at the driver door where the old underseat gas tank filler would have been on an older model. This area looks like it had the hole for the filler neck at one time and it has been filled. A '71 body should be solid here, with no evidence of the hole through the tub. Unless someone added an underseat tank for an auxiliary tank at some point and then it was removed later on. Who knows.

    And the bright green paint showing through here and there is also a bit of a curiosity. I was thinking that the green was a Renegade only color option from back then but I could be wrong about that. Or it could simply another layer of paint over top of the original color.

    Some '71 bodies came will a fill plate like that from the factory. I've seen several like that. Jeep was a small company and played pretty fast and loose on the assembly line. They were probably using up bodies with the hole before moving on to ones where the hole was never cut in the first place.

    Obviously it's a Ren I or II, every panel still shows mint green under multiple other coats of paint. You can just see the edge of the additional gauge's behind the down tube on the front cage hoop. If that increases the value to you go look, as for me I wouldn't hesitate to drive a measly 100 miles to offer him 3500 for it. The panel closing off the fuel point is exactly like the one I had on my 71' CJ-6, it was held in place by seam sealer, I popped it off and put an under seat tank in it to go along with the factory rear tank.

    I dig the skylight. Check for the solid rear panel with tire carrier.
    Go get it.




    And smash those headlights.

    I think it looks like a great deal for the asking price, especially if it starts and drives. Is it home yet?

    I’ve never seen one with a filler plate. Learn something new around here all the time.

    That is a great deal, I can't believe the ad has lasted this long. Looks like the original tail lights too. I had a fiber glass top like that for a couple of years in the 80's. It has 2 problems. 1) it weighs a lot, so the CG of the jeep gets elevated, makes turns very tipsy 2) In a southern state it is about like a giant toaster oven, too dang hot.
