SOLD Thanks everyone for your interest!

I have a 1984 FJ60 with a Mercedes turbo diesel and automatic transmission installed... Comes with a Toyota t-case (not installed) and a pile of spare parts. Engine has a rebuilt head with zero miles. 5-cylinder 1985 model out of a 300D.

Lots more pictures are online here. (http://polarweasel.org/photos/v/other/testing/1984+FJ60/) It's in really quite good shape. Hell, the headliner isn't even sagging at all!

OME heavy springs and shocks front/rear.

Ramsey 8000-pound winch in a small bush-bar mount.

3.73 gears, Lock-Rite in the rear.

BEEFY custom rear bumper with big shackle mounts tied to the frame, side protection, and tire carrier on a trailer bearing pivot.

33x12.5 mud tires (rollers, not much life left) on black wagon wheels, not the white rusty ones in the picture!

Body is generally good. Glass good (crack in windshield). Nice big FJ62 mirrors. Interior pretty good, with 3-point belts in the rear. Cargo drawer in the back.

It's a project. I can give you a CAD drawing for an adapter to divorce the t-case and hook it up to the Mercedes tranny, or you can get an adapter from 4x4Labs.com to mate the engine to a Chevy tranny.

$1000 OBO (SOLD). I'd like to sell this soon, and I have no way to part it out, so please don't ask for parts, but please do make an offer?I'll consider all offers!

So that one is yours! I drive past it on the way to work. I wondered what the story was with it. It sounds like a cool project but not something I want to take on right now.

Any rust? Miles on the block?

Any rust? Miles on the block?

Some rust. I can't remember exactly where it all is, but I know there's some in the rockers, and some in the rear arches. Overall it's not bad at all.

Probably close to 200k miles on the block. When we took it all apart, cylinders were clean. New valves and guides in the head, rebuilt professionally by a mechanic in Loveland. New timing chain and guides when we had it all apart, among other new parts. I daily-drove the car it came out of for a few weeks before I pulled the engine, and it ran well with good power.

This was a serious project until a divorce, move, new job, and finally loss of shop space and lack of funds made me give up the dream.

I also need a new front axle (at least the housing, if not a complete bolt-up-and-go assembly) for my BJ42. My third member, birfields, hubs, and disc brakes etc. are good, but the housing itself is bent. If you've got a housing or full front end assembly, and can help me install it, the price of the 60 could go way down. :grinpimp:

(I also need help finishing up a turbo project on the 42, and if you have the tools and knowledge to rebuild a PS pump and an H41/42 tranny, let's make a deal!)

I may be very interested in trading a BJ44 front axle and some odds and ends for the rig.

I have a few Q's:
Old engine? and tranny?
Interior color?
Pictures to me at kraig @ colorado . net ?

Thanks!

Kraig,

I'll get you some pictures later today. Old engine (fuel-injected 2F) and tranny (4-speed) got sold to finance the build. Interior is everyone's favorite sexy brown.

Money talks, BS walks. Get your coalitions and partnerships finalized and put firm offers on the table :D

This is sorta fun, we should do our own RS E-bay auctions more often.

UB, I'll give you the 60 and fifty bucks for Wild Rice. :)

By the way, are you guys wanting the winch, too? I've gotten a couple of inquiries about selling that separately.

Keep the offers coming! Let's make it vanish on Sunday!
