Hi All,
I'm selling a 1978 FJ55. I did a bunch of work to it and it was my trail/cruising rig til about 4-5 years ago when I got a crawler 4runner. Clear CO title, runs and drives. Been sitting since, not a beauty queen but very minimal rust.
2F str8 6 engine: valve job, 350 carb, mallory ignition, high flow exhaust (no cat req'd this year), GM internally regulated alternator, recored radiator, reliable!
Stock tranny/transfer and diffs/gearing
Just before parking had Coyote Cruisers put in full susp kit with heavy duty springs all around and shocks of course. Aussie built/Fj55 specific kit. Not much actual lift but sits up nice and high in the back and is stiff/strong. He (John) did about 1K of front end work also.
Chopped top and rear windows with custom welded diamond plate mini flatbed and aluminum diamondplate over cab. Could use some work here but its pretty solid. Dash is intact but generally kinda rough interior...rhinolined at one point.
Tires ok but I would replace them due to age. Around 85K on working OD. Nice place to start as a project, I just don't need it and I want to fund a new trials moto.
Looking to get around $2300 but will negotiate.
It's just north of Ftc by Budwieser area.
Cheers, and thanks for looking.
