Prob wants 10 grand for that. I hate when people have a reserve. I won't bid on things when I see a reserve.

Bought one awhile back and drove it around for awhile. Fun but I could barely drive it with my long legs. When it rained, the seam in the middle of the hood leaked and the water would sit on top of the flat four and leak down into the crankcase. Even with the engine seizing up once in awhile, it still ran and drove with only the right front and left back brakes working. Just too small for me.

they are small. i am only 5.6 and although i can drive with the windshield up, i prefer to have it down as i'm so close to it in the upright position.
also, the seat isn't on a slider track, so for the larger guys, the steering wheel would be in your gut.

also, they only go about 40mph, at least mine does. they have 5.13 gears, so there's no top speed.

with all that said however, i love mine. (49 cj3a)
