I just scored!

$75! All with the center caps and tires (although tires are junk and will get replaced).

Perfect condition. All they need now is a polish and shine!

Good score. I like those much more than the turbine wheels.

Agreed. I had a set on my old '77 and I've always loved them. Much better than the turbines IMO.

Turning every stone with persistence. That's what it takes. I was actually looking for old junk wagoneers with a decent engine so I could pull the engine when I came across an ad on craigslist for odds and ends on a vehicle that was already pretty much torn apart. I always have an eye out for them but low and behold, there they were! And $75 to boot!

Here's the actual ad:

Little hidden gems.

Not sure if that was a cb radio or just an old radio. I didn't really look at the dash. Besides, he said someone was coming to grab most of the dash stuff anyway.

I should have looked closer at that radio. He's got some good round headlights with decent housings as well.

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

That is a good buy considering I have sold several of those for $20-25 each w/o caps. When you ship one it is usually around $17-25 so it is easy to have $50 in just one. Congrats, also my favorite 6 lug wheel.

So I have a question. Obviously I will be selling my other wheels (the turbines). I notice that TGW has refurbished aluminum gray wheels on their site for $350 ea! Yowzzaa. Those are like new I understand but with a proper detailing, mine aren't far off. So what would be a fair price to sell mine for (without center caps)? Is there really any market for them?

I'm not looking to make much and I would really rather just help a fellow Jeepster get some good condition wheels if they need them.

It will take the right person to buy them for anymore than a $100 set.
