Hey all! I'm brand new here, and not currently a jeep owner, but I'm looking into buying a 1962 CJ-6 that someone I know is selling, and was hoping for some advice and guidance. It has only minor rust, just about everything is original, it runs, it has a new soft top, and that's about all I know about it. I realize it's going to be a major overhaul, and I also realize that I'm getting in completely over my head, my question is more about whether I'm getting swindled on the price. The owner says that she paid $3800, and won't take anything less than $3000.
Thanks for any help y'all can give me!

What's the mileage, motor, and drivetrain? Minor rust could mean major hidden rust. Take a look at the body mounts, if it has some kind of carpet, check under that for rust. Without knowing the mileage etc., I would say it's a little steep. Although I've only ever seen one CJ6 around here. They aren't a dime a dozen.
