Not surprising. I'd rather pay $21,000 for a nice old vehicle that I understand how it works and can fix it myself rather than pay $21,000 for a cheap modern vehicle that I do not understand how it works and cannot fix myself. That $21,000 old vehicle is also appreciating in value so it is paying me to own it in a way. I can sell it and make my money back. A $21,000 new vehicle depreciates so rapidly that it's basically worthless within 10 years. It costs me a lot more money to own over time.


So sure. Good buy.

And check these out. One for 63K.

https://classiccars.com/listings/fin.../jeep/wagoneer

And my wife found this earlier. Look at the estimate. It does not say what it sold for. I have a 69 X model. I must be rich right?

I honestly wonder how much the 70 I am building would be worth? Not that I or the owner care. And he will never sell it. But I wonder.

The Mecum 1414X sold for 60 grands and it's worth that price, one of a kind early 1414X from a known collector.
On the other hand , in my opinion 63k is too much for a lot more common Grand Wagoneer, even if it's a mint one

A 69 or 70 1414X will sell for less money than an early 68 in a comparable condition, a mint or a barn find example should exceed 20k though

Or it's worth whatever someone pays for it, that is the value. I am happy that they are selling for theses prices and everyone else should be to. They have not been given the proper respect compared to the others out there. It becomes easier to justify the prices of theses older vehicles when new 1/2 ton pick up trucks and SUV's are in the 50-75 thousand range and people don't bat an eye and then drop in value by 1/2 to 2/3 rds in a few years. I say keep some as original as possible and others modified to be a little more modern and user friendly. Its not what I think or anyone else thinks what it should be, the market dictates that.

Yep. Nuff said. Supply and demand. I have mixed opinions on our rigs climbing in value.
A) I love knowing these rigs are in demand enough to go for more money. If I have to bail on my rig, it's nice to know it should sell for more than I bought it for and people are starting to see them as cool old rigs.
B) That means parts are starting to get more expensive/harder to find as rigs that used to be great parts car candidates are now being put back on the road.

Sometimes it's funny to see what people expect to get for their rig. I think they see a clean Wago go for $60K (like the 1414X mentioned above) and assume their junk should should be worth a ton, too. "Just needs a little rust fixed and cleaning..."
There is a NT Cherokee that has been on CL for over a year because the price is in the stratosphere. The price has come down some (still in space) but I think it was $13K or $14K at one time.

on the subject of value:

my favorite saying about old vehicles
or really any material posession is:

"not only is beauty in the eye of the beholder
but value is also in the eye of the beholder"

for example, when i am asked what a particular car is worth
i say, "to some people it is worth a lot,.... to some,... nothing"

some folks would mortgage their house for an old car they like
and some would not give you 100 bucks for it.

i realize that none of this is news to anyone
just my two cents

but i really agree with the member who states how newer vehicles plummit in value,

and honestly i dont see anyone 40 years from now restoring
a 2018 truck or SUV.

but folks may have said the same thing in 1978 when they were plentiful.

take care all you FSJ'ers !
