Don't even want to comment on the price.

Too bad he painted it a non factory color. ick.

maybe that was the color of his favorite trailer
"I am being forced to sell it due to the decline in the manufactured housing industry and I'm trying to cash flow my company"

and good thing that nice diesel motor had a rebuild at 4700 miles....

I can't believe the bidding price has gotten so high! There are soooo many things wrong with that Cruiser. Most obvious and most significant to me is that it is not a 1979 body. Also the front seats are a weird mix of old bench and buckets.

Since he got it from India, it could well be stock for that country and year.

The pro comp tires should reduce the price by at least $1000, right?

I don't know what I would do with such a Cruiser. I'd be scared to drive it.

Doesn't make sense that it's a left hand drive and came from India since their vehicles are all right hand drive. I'm more inclined to think it came from Canada.

Couldn't that be a split bench? That's similar to the way the stock 60/40 split bench in my truck was, the passenger's seat looked like a bucket seat but wasn't really.

I hadn't paid attention to this thread much but Dave is correct, that is a stock 60/40 Toy bench seat. My 64 had one very similer. Not a bad set but the hinge between the seats was MURDER! You land your tailbone on that evil thing and you could pass out from the pain! That Cruiser is beautiful but there is absolutely no way I would pay that kind of money for it! I (sorry Wes) dislike the 3B diesels still like 3B way more than 22r's but still prefer the tractor qualities of a 2F! :rolleyes: Please forgive me guardians of rust and steel weight.....I have be swayed by evil thoughts and I must repent....

The cruiser gods aren't going to like that. Can't you go back to picking on 22r and re? ;)

I knew I made a mistake by admitting that! I can't believe I made that proclamation when I need smiles from Mt. Fugi guardians the most! :eek: :(

Could it be a 2B? Didn't Toyota go to the 3B somewhere around 1978-1979?

It's an awesome truck but it's a museum piece and it wouldn't be smart to drive it on public roads.

It's price is competitive with trucks in similar condition on the TLC web site. TLC has a 1965 FJ45 pickup listed for sale at $85,000 and up, depending on the restoration chosen. It's not for sale unrestored. They also have a beautiful 1976 FJ55 for $61K. Somebody must be paying that kind of money for these trucks if TLC's web site is any kind of indicator.

It's nice but for that kind of cash it better be damn perfect and it's far from that. bumperettes, spare tire carrier paint, I could go on and on.

How bout the cheesy front seat bracket? If that's any indication of the quality of the resto I wouldn't touch it with a 10ft pole

The dashboard appears to be stripped of most knobs and other things - what gives with that?

It never ceases to amaze me what some people will classify as a restoration. There are so many things on this truck that make it a resto-mod at best.
