Another rediculous Craigslist ad, with question!

I found this beauty on CL the other day & it could easily make tops in the ridiculous CL ad thread. My questions are: This can have either the GM V6 or the 4Cyl right? Also, they say it has a 5 speed transmission AX5 or Ba10-5, or could it be either? Mine is a '91 so i never really got all that into the older configurations...

So i called on the ad, here's how the conversation goes:

 

Her: Hello?

 

Me: Hi, my name is Dave & i was calling about your Craigslist ad for the Jeep truck.

 

Her: My what?

 

Me: :huh???: Your Jeep truck?

 

Her: Oh the Jeep, it's a good truck.

 

Me: Great, do you know what engine it has?

 

Her: It's a five speed.

 

Me: :nuts: Okay, but do you know what engine it has.

 

Long pause.

 

Her: I think it has the standard one they came with back then.

 

Me: Does it run?

 

Her: (Very confused) Well, no. The battery for it is in the trunk of my car.

 

Me: Could i come look at it?

 

Long pause.

 

Her: You can come look at it.

 

Me: When are you available?

 

Long pause.

 

Her: I'm available anytime.

 

Me: Could i come today?

 

Long pause.

 

Her: Okay.

 

Me: Where is the truck located?

 

Her: It's not at my house, do you know where the Ace Hardware is off Vine?

 

Me: No.

 

Her: Well, you can meet me at my house, & i'll take you over there.

 

Me: Okay, I'll have to get with you on this one.

 

:dunce: I think i 'm going to pass.

alot of these type of deals play out very well, i would go look at it.

 

my trucks ad said "84 jeep pickup fourbyfour runs $400" it had no pics, i called the owner and they knew very little about it.

 

i got curious and went to looked at it and drove home in a decent looking 89 shortbox 4X4 sitting on 31" tires :cheers:

 

the best deals come from the people who don't know what they have.

Ive had this same experience, but was unable to look at the item for sale because the owner didnt have it ready...... Well then why did you put it up for sale?????

I hate to break the news, but............I'm 99% sure it has the GM 2.hate in it. Take a close look at the tailgate in the pictures. See the emblem in lower left hand corner? I'm pretty sure that's the "V6 2.8L" emblem. :(

 

I'd still go take a gander at it though, if it don't run just find a 3.4 L from a camaro.....direct bolt in and a lot better of an engine. As long as it doesn't have much rust and a decent body, go for it. jamminz.gif
