79 Cherokee value ?

Hi everyone.
By coincidence , while looking at an online property ad , i saw somthing jeep looking in the pictures of the property . Thinking it may be a car usable as parts for my J20 project , i got curious and found the name listed as the seller of the property , as the realesrate agents did not return my calls . It was a lawyer , selling the estate of a dead guy , and the jeep was for sale . It was a bit long away , but another coincidence had me driving a long trip , that made looking at this jeep only a 4 hour ekstra trip . I just had to go !
It seems to me to be a 1979 cherokee with chief s badges . 360 and 3 speed automatic . It looks to be almost rust free , and the blue interior seem to be all in order . I dont know for sure , as the doors was locked , but it may look like an levis interior ? It seem to me to have the grille used only between 79 and 80 ?

As i know little of cherokee’s , and i never see them for sale at my location , i wounder if members of this forum would have an opinion of what a car like this is worth ? What does a 79 cherokee sell for thies days ?

Not familiar with the exports, over here the rectangular headlights started in '80, and the cherk and trucks got the "muscle" grille. Don't have my book to breakout the Vin for the year. Should be able to do that online.

As to value, tough to say for Norway. Over here if running, I'd guess between $2000-2500 US.
He might take way less just to get it gone. Hit him low and see what the counter offer is. Probably be able to meet somewhere in the middle. You're going to have some work to do, even if running when parked. A lot is going to depend on engine/trans condition.

VIN says it's a 1980
Far as value no idea but suspect in Norway even a parts truck is a rarity?

Grille as well as just about any part could have been replaced in 40ish years.
Looks complete and in decent shape though.

Before you make a offer on the jeep make sure that the engine is not locked up and have a look if there is still antifreeze in the radiator.
(One of the pictures showing green fluid on the intake manifold)

If you looked it over and under the carpet and it looks good and no big rust holes.
I would start with something around 1500-/2000- Euro.

(Overhere in Holland they go for 4000-euro in bad shape to around 20.000 in driveable condition.
The last ten years the value went up to crazy prices for the full size Jeeps

I found some history on the jeep at the "dmv" .
First registered in 1981 .
"current" owner had the car since 1984.
Plates taken off the car in 1997 .
2 owner car.
Also found out that the owner was a jeep enthusiast , and had several jeeps
at another location that has sold already.

I was not able to look inside and lift carpet . i did slide underneath and had a look.
could not see any rust beside surface rust. pretty straight body. chrome look good. window chrome was inside the car and looked ok. interior a bit dirt , but in good shape with no rips.
i have a good feeling about this one.

I agree with Heep. You can't go wrong with an offer of 1.500
