I have a shot to pick up a 91 fj80 that needs some work. The headgasket is blown, paint fadded and inside needs to be cleaned....it's fine but the dash will need to be replaced as it's cracked. Regardless, the engine having issues is what I have been looking for for a project. He is asking 1900. Would you move on it?

91 still had the 3FE if that matters to you

You said before you wanted to do a diesel swap right? still the case? If so then this could be a good starter. Remember those 3FE 80's had 15" rims, smaller calipers, fwiw...

Shopped around and its just not worth it. Picking up a runnign fj62 in great shape later this week for 1500. Not a 80, but still a great deal/start.
