Evaluation: Showing 21,873 miles that are represented as actual. Small dent on the front of the hood and the decals on the hood are faded, but the rest of the graphics look good and the original paint is holding up well other than some cracks around the hinges and below the windshield. Tidy engine bay and very solid frame. The top looks brand new and the seats may be newer replacements. The nifty colors and the low miles just about make up for the square headlights, and although a beach cruiser isn’t quite at home in Indiana, this thing has a lot of charm.
Bottom Line: Although the market for vintage trucks and SUVs is in general super-strong right now, first generation (YJ) Wranglers are still pretty cheap. That’s largely because most people don’t like the headlights and because most examples have lived a hard life. The Indy bidders recognized this one for the exceptionally clean Jeep that it is, and lifted their paddles to a top-of-the-market result.
