    Sealed bids. Cheeseus, just put a price on it. I will never figure what is in peoples minds. You want to sell it…then sell it. Bids indeed…

  2. Dacid

    Typically, the Government pays for their new items. They need to do it this way to make sure they don’t sell it to a friend for five bucks.

  3. Bob in nc

    Local people will have much better idea what it’s worth than anyone else. I’d say it’s worth 4500. If you want to offer more, go ahead.

    Exhaust pipe ends mid body and pointed straight down. Did they use this Jeep to drive around and start fires? Haha

    Chuck: Good point. I wonder if that exhaust has been cobbled together. It makes not sense to have that setup if the jeep was ever being used in a dry area!

    David: I agree with you on the sealed bid process. It creates a clear paper trail that, ideally, wouldn’t favor anyone. And, they don’t have to hassle with the auction process (or its fees). While it doesn’t necessarily maximize the return, that may not be the goal here; The goal may be simply be to give everyone in the community (who has the money) a fair chance at obtaining it.

    There was a 54 CJ3B in a town I used to live in that went on sealed bid…I did not bid because I figured it would go for crazy money, but it did not…went for like $1200. This was 20 years ago, but the guy did drive it away.

    Bob: I’ve heard other folks with similar stories. If you are close and have the money, it’s worth doing a low bid.

  8. Brian Studer

    I live approx 45 minutes from this jeep. Our town sold their cj3b fire brush jeep. By law it was sold by silent bid also. It brought $26,562!!

    What??? Who would be crazy enough to bid that much using a sealed bid? Also, it seems like an odd number for a sealed bid?
