I just pulled a 70 CJ 4 Speed car out of a garage in NJ that was sitting since then too.

Slightly different rust situation! None up here ..... go figure :-)

Let's see where that beast goes.

What are you actually buying here? Looks like a rusted shell and a VIN only...Looks the the engine was ripped out while it was still bolted in.

Well, the word might be 'bought'  as it is no longer on eBay!

Wow, that was quick.

You're forgetting the space saver spare that is clearly still in the trunk.

Probably offered a price he couldn't resist to pull it. Big job, but repairable, that's for sure.

I talked with the owner this week....the guy I spoke with just bought it and listed on Ebay.  Car was apparently in Miami its entire life.  He has a pending deal for $35K and I could have bought the car if I flew out to Florida.  After thinking about it I had to pass.  With the missing drive train and the rust I dont know if you could save more than 20% of the car.   Its a huge project.

I agree. That's all the money and then some for a basket case B9 that will have more aftermarket and reproduction stuff on it than anything. I'm sure it can be brought back but at what expense.

Even with everything to put this back together, the question would remain about originality when one could compare this to a number of other GB/white gut cars that are available.

I hate seeing cars in that kind of shape, can't image the work needed to bring something like that back... If there was a car deserving of that type of work it would have to be a BOSS 429. But the other half of me thinks we should just have a moment of silence.

If anything, it's just good to have one more documented and accounted for.

Even at $30K its a tough judgement call on that car.  It will take alot of effort to bring that car back....

I have been (almost) there and down that.

The parts chase is endless, the sheetmetal pursuit is a challenge, and if you have never done a nine? Get your boot straps on. That is a very tough, and expensive car to restore to an extremely high level.

I am a privateer who has done three gold concourse nines, and it is a tremendous experience.

Loved every one, at times didn't love em' so much.

Once complete. No questions asked.
