That's a really low budget for a stock 1997 if you want one in good condition - maybe you can find one or two at $25k, but if that's the very very top of your budget, you should consider saving a little longer, as even at $25k you should budget another $5k at least for immediate work (just in case). Also, take a look in the For Sale Vehicles section here for what $15k gets you in any year...not much most of the time. 1997 commands a premium because they were all auto.

Best of luck.

it is possible to get something for this money ... but you wouldn't find it here .... you'd have to buy it from someone who didn't have an idea of the value.

It has been done but will require lots of work an patience.

Oh yeah it can definitely be done - don't get me wrong! - but yeah that's a low budget for 1997s, was what I was trying to say. And when they do come up for "cheap" usually someone just buys it to flip it.

Increasing that budget to $30k will help you out a lot.

These "want to buy" threads should probably be moved to another area.....like maybe the wanted section. It clutters up the actual For Sale Posts.

I know the market. I owned one for several years and sold it high. I helped my brother buy one in 2012 and now I want another one. I can normally find them here in Texas but most of them have holes punched in them for wires or accessories. Im looking for a clean body. Im going to put it on a galvanized frame and put a diesel engine in it over time.

If you want to put a diesel engine in it, you may be better off with a pre-OBDII vehicle as it would be much more valuable if you ever intended on selling it.(emissions)

I know of a stock 95SW @$24 and I know of a ZF auto with Defender center console for about $2. If this is on any interest and fits in your budget you can PM me. Prices are firm.
