Yah, nice old Jeep but the first thing to do is nail down exactly what you've got there. I don't know enough about older Jeeps to even try, but maybe somebody else here can.

Then determine how much of it is original. Do the numbers match?? Do you have the doors and all the other stuff that's supposed to be there?? Does it run??

It looks to me like it needs a frame off rotisserie restoration. You need to take some pictures of the underbody too so people can see what they would be dealing with. If the frame is rotted out, it won't be worth much imo.

Sorry dude but I don't think you have what you think you have. Thats looks like a 1968 CJ5 and it looks like it has some fire damage, your not going to get all that much for it. The tires are military issue, so unless somebody took an old '52-'57 M38a1, got rid of the fulltime 4wd,installed the Warn hubs,gave it a bad paint job,installed a rollcage it's probably a CJ5 (civilian Jeep). $1200 - $2000 CDN. In the shape it is in now, I'm sure there is some rust issues as well. It might even be a Cj7 or a mixture of the M38, Cj5 & Cj7.

If you are trying to sell to an army jeep restorer..it's worth not much...maybe $1,500.00 To someone wanting a jeep to fix up and have fun with...try $2,500.00 My honest opinion being an army jeep guy. Rick.
