The Old CJ2A Page Message Archive

Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

: It is only important if it is important to YOUR grand scheme. Glenn has the right idea. It may be a good selling point if someone such as yourself is looking for that, but as far as making it worth ALOT more, I can't see it. Just remember these aren't Duesenbergs we're playing with here.

: In the overall grand scheme of collecting some 'Classic' vehicle, this is more toward the 'entertainment' end of the spectrum. Don't get in to collecting Jeeps as a means of supplimenting your 401K! (depleting your 401K could be closer to the truth)

: Enjoy what you've got, get matching tags if it's important. I think Barett/Jackson's Auction has done about as much to mess up the old car hobby as it has to help it....just an opinion.

I agree with all that has been said. There is a small portion of these jeeps that are comanding higher demand and price (early column sift) but at this time it is not a BIG difference unless you have a untouched origanal with early ser.#. The main thing I have to say, these Jeeps were ment to be used. Have fun with yours and you can allway fix whats wrong. PS I painted mine with a brush and can fix any of those branch scrapes in about 15 min. and always looks good.
