This one is in your 'hood.

OH yeah,

I have seen this one; did you notice the asking price $6000 USD [not pesos].

I think that is way to high for that Cruiser and it is out of my budget.

I have pretty throughly saturated the Craigs list market. Thanks for the heads up on a nice cruiser!

Surprised you haven't found one then as it seems like there have been a lot on CL recently. I'll keep my eyes open.

Here's a couple more:

Thanks for the links; now is a great time to be buying!

Part of the problem is I do not have transportation to visit the seller and I am on a budget. Trucks appear to have high miles and quite a few issues—in my price range.

I have a good lead on an 84 60, with 250k miles. He has disclosed that the power steering does not work and he has been driving it without fluid. So, I would need to make the repair and I have been quoted $550 to replace the power steering pump.

These types of issues have made the purchase difficult. If I could spend another $1000 or so; it would be great!

Yes, that works but I have a feeling I would need to refinance my home to be able to afforded it. Wait, I do not own a home! :)

What would you like to get for that rig?

Great truck, what I am looking for.

It is an 85 FJ60 that was purchased in Oregon last year. It has 203,000 miles on it and it runs well.

The body is one the nicest I have seen, that was why I bought it.

It has had pretty much everything mechanically checked or replaced with new; the list includes:
Master cylinder
Rear brake cylinders
Rear shoes
Spring and hardware kit
All belts and hoses
Air cleaner
All driveline fluids have been replaced with synthetic oil
New Sony cd / mp3 / iPod ready deck and speakers

The interior is pretty nice too

The bad parts:

The truck sat for a few years with little or no fuel in it at one point, so the tank has some rust. I have a spare tank that was in really nice shape, as well as a box of POR 75 tank repair kit to flush and seal, that can go with it.

There is a small spot of rust on the bottom of the drivers front fender

I would be looking for $5800.

I also have a 2-1/2 lift kit that has not been installed that can be sold separately or wrought into the deal.

Email me if you want pics

Canadian dollars, holy sh**...does anyone know where I can donate a kidney[?], and I will be right over!:D

My max is about $3000 and that is the very maximum. Thanks for the offer and it is a great rig; I am sure you will find a buyer soon!

My buddy in golden is looking to sell his 82 Fj60. It runs pretty well and has an electronic ignition. Body is in really great shape. It is white with about 3" lift and 33's. There is a new headliner and my friend just lined the interior floor with bedliner. The one kicker is that the rig is desmogged. He is askiing $3000 and it is located in Golden. I would buy it if I did not already have a 60. Let me know if you are interested. You can call me at 720-272-1385.
