What's It Worth?


Recommended Posts

I've just had someone ask if I was interested in selling my mj. I have no idea what it's worth. It's a stock 91 6cyl, 4wd, 6.0 5 speed with bucket seats.

 

I know they say it's worth what you can get for it but I don't want to ask for something that's way off base.

 

Thoughts?

Pics.  Looks pretty good to me. Depending on unseen rust and mechanical condition, and if it's been in the South all it's life, and it's an HO, I'd say an easy $4500-$5000. Maybe more.

It's mechanically sound and no unseen rust except that the 4wd won't work because the vacuum lines were melted against the tail pipe.  I'm guessing that's worth about $1000 off?

 

I've pulled the carpets and check the wheel wells all the time.  I've owned it for 15 years and as far as I know, it's been in the south all its life.

 

Had no idea she was worth that much.  I doubt he's going to offer that but I don't plan to take anything less at this point because I'm in no real hurry to sell.

So, I talked to the guy who's interested and he says the ones around here (Memphis, TN) are only going for around 2K which is all he's prepared to offer.  I'm not really in that big of a hurry to sell so I'm thinking I'll pass on it.

Last time I bought a replacement for that vacuum harness it cost me $17. Today, we don't replace it -- we lock the front axle in the engaged position and don't worry about it. That little "issue" isn't a $1000 deduct, it's a half hour fix before you sell.

 

I wouldn't sell that truck. You'll never be able to replace it for near what you'll get for it.

Here is a minty one- http://atlanta.craigslist.org/eat/cto/4392475306.html just south of you.

 

MJs in the $4-6K range don't sell well in the south, the one above has been listed for months.

 

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/cto/4432102630.html typical for the $2500 range.

 

http://knoxville.craigslist.org/cto/4388500034.html he'll never get what he is asking.

 

 

IMO......your's is in the $2500-$2800 range.

 

Advertise in the rust belt.......you may get more for someone willing to drive down to pick it up.

 

 

 

Problem is........for those who have $5k to spend.......they ain't buying 25 year old MJs. Money is getting tight.

Not to derail your thread......

 

In '83 I bought a 66 Dart exactly like the one in the pic, drove is through high school.

Was looking for a 8.75 axle last night and came across this- http://swva.craigslist.org/cto/4409864775.html

 

Identical car that is a basket case for $7K.........who knew........30 years ago?

 

 

 

Used cars/trucks are getting real hard to find and expensive.

 

 

Every time I see someone here.......yes HERE! cut up a MJ, I cringe, point my middle finger at the screen......

 

I appreciate the fact that you did not sell to some jackwad who intended to cut it up. :)
