Actually on the work bench last night... the garage was freezing cold and the temperature outside was 80, so when I opened up the doors, it got all sorts of wet/damp/humid at the same time... got to love this time of the year.
Anyway, this reminded me somewhat of a MM picture and I had a good laugh. the camera lens seems to have gotten the moisture effect somewhat.
1986 258 4 speed. Pretty clean for a SE PA Jeep. Plans right now are fix it up a little and sell in fall for profit. Not sure if that will happen. Will start a build thread even though I don't plan on doing much to it. It drove pretty good 40 miles home reaching 67 mph not scared doing it. First thing are wiper blade, lower column bearing, master cylinder gasket, and dimmer switch all should be here tomorrow. Then state inspection, only had 52 miles since it was last done in August 2017.
It is, frame is super clean, its not all rusted and flakely like my last all original 85 CJ7 I sold that had 46,000 miles on it. Clean garnet back seat and wing window dash pad with no damage. Thinking about selling the pad and rims to offset help offset the purchase price.
Well not Jeep related technicially, but the hauler that gets em all was a bit sick... one bearing was going out and the other one was seizing up... felt like it was stuck in 4wd with pulsing in the steering and a lot of strange brake like noises... all set now, drives like a dream.
Also threw in a new air filter and checked the pressures... rolls so much nicer now.
While this was going on, I am still working on the latest project and getting it dialed in... was checking all the lights and it was cool to see an all original dash with the blue lights that all matched unlike a lot of my other ones... picture doesn't do it justice.
Also, all the gauges work... I know... I know, hard to believe
