I'm curious if any of y'all have bought one of these or restored one yourself? And/or paid to have it restored? I would like to finally make the move on one in a few months and want some advice.....or would like to hear some opinions. Pricewise, in regards to a 66-72 Bronco restored, you're looking at $20K easy (and up to even $40 or $50K), but can find a busted one for $3K up to $5K or so. However, is it worth it to pay to get the work done? I've heard body work is the most expnsive, but I've got an old dude in Abilene that would do body work and a nice paint job for a reasonable price....assuming the old F-150 looks good in a week or 2 when I get it back. I've also got a good transmission shop there who would do work on the cheap when I offer straight cash. Homie. Hot hands in the dice game! Am I out a ton of cash to have a motor dropped(if one is pulled, but included in purchase) in one? Or rebuilt? $3K? Maybe more? Next, I would have tires and rims....maybe a rollbar? Nice tires and new wheels are going to be $3500 or so. Upholstery and then electrical work, rewiring, etc. The main issue with a lot of old Jeep's, Scout's, etc is getting the new brake lines or something so they're not the old school brakes that aren't as safe. Or so this is what I've read.... Options(in preferred order): 1. International Scout ii 2. A. Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 B. Ford Bronco 3. Jeep CJ-7 From what I can gather, I'm out $10-$15K if I do/get work done myself or purchase one in pretty good shape, by bird dogging one online or in person and making a legit cash offer and they want to sell for a lower price. Some cool old rigs out there, like this one....but people think a bit too much of them... https://elpaso.craigslist.org/cto/d/fj40-land-cruiser-1977-get-it/6411833909.html Here's a cheap one(Haha)....but still solid. https://santafe.craigslist.org/cto/d/landcruiser/6447507800.html Bronco's: Rust bucket, but they still want $3K. Got that 3 on the tree though! https://houston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1973-ford-bronco-early-bronco/6454838929.html So Solid! With a solid $26K price. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/ctd/d/early-bronco/6454354639.html A true project...but I like it for some crazy reason https://oklahomacity.craigslist.org/cto/d/1970-ford-bronco/6424112095.html Here's some f***in' muscle for ya Wooderson! I don't like the fender flares though. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/cto/d/1967-ford-bronco/6435483194.html International Scout 2's: Not sure if the dbag is included. Hope not. Cool rig, but like $14K cool, not $22K cool https://dallas.craigslist.org/ndf/cto/d/rare-international-scout-ii/6432049929.html A true project, but I love the stance and wheel/tires. First thing I would do is paint it...you know, so I can actually see it....wink. https://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/cto/d/international-scout-ii/6425833259.html It would be a lot cooler if that was burnt orange. Still, a very solid rig and I don't think his price is bad at all for what he has in it. Too pricey for this guy though. https://austin.craigslist.org/cto/d/international-scout-4-sale/6433496299.html The Darkhorse: I love these old 4Runner's and this one is clean and original. I love the paint color, but would drop the running boards ASAP! https://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/cto/d/1988-toyota-4runner-sr5-4x4/6453629465.html This one is less pricey and needs a few things, but not bad. https://houston.craigslist.org/cto/d/1986-toyota-4-runner-4x4/6446767057.html Any thoughts? Feel free to let me know. Thanks gentleman and ladies.
