SOLD, thanks for your PMs and interest!

Rather than wax poetic about this amazing 1985 Land Cruiser FJ60, I値l let the facts speak for themselves. I知 listing this soon-to-be-yours Toyota landcruiser for $10,000. You got questions, PM me. You want to buy it, call me. You have a late model, low-mileage short-bed Double Tacoma, let痴 trade, and of course, I値l add a wad of cash to the deal for that Tacoma.


Purchased from 2nd owner (she purchased it from original owner, who was a friend) on 9.24.08 with mileage at 127,650 (and yes, I am that anal, so I have all the service records and have kept this baby impeccably maintained).
Current Mileage: 144,xxx (engine rebuilt on 1.25.99 at John Elway Toyota at 75,466用revious owner, not sure what happen and radiator replaced on 8.17.00 (88,869)用revious owner, not sure what happen) so that means under 70,000 miles on the rebuilt engine

Toyota OEM H55F 5-speed tranny (135,180) Yeah baby, it痴 got that coveted 5 speed. Please note the pictures show a 4 spd shifter knob because it looks so much better than the 5 spd. knob, but the proper shifter knob is in the locking Tuffy Center Consol

What it needs:

Attention to cancer on one door corner (see picture)
A good home, preferably with a child and dog, that plans to take good care of it, spending nearly every weekend in the mountains playing

Hey LargerOne, the rig is staying in the club, so it will continue to be around. Marco, Nakman, FJBrady, thanks for asking. Recovery is coming, very, very slowly. The left knee did not heal well following the accident in August, so we went back in and did surgery two weeks ago. Hopefully things will heal right this time.
