new carburetor
new fuel tank
new sending unit
new gauges
new tires
new water pump
rebuilt radiator
new hoses
updated wiring harness

The new carb and tank are installed and just need to be plumbed up, a few odds and ends need addressing with most all parts needed are included with the sale. The JEEP will be conveyed with a bill of sale, however the VIN plate is still present (rare for old JEEPS) so you can apply for a bonded title which cost $350 and some paperwork. The JEEP is priced right and with a little work could easily be worth twice as much.”
