Default 1973 FJ40 with 2F, 4spd, PS

Sold Sold Sold

Selling my FJ40 on Craigslist.

For Sale Early 1973 FJ40 with early 1979 Engine/Tranny swap.

Price: $9,600 (US)
Odometer: 82717.9
Location: Durango, Colorado since December 2012. Spent most of its time in New Mexico.
Phone: 9 seven zero - five 7 zero - nine five three 5.
Reason for selling: Bought an FZJ80

This is a 9/72 (early 1973) FJ40 with a 1/79 (early 1979) 2F engine, 4spd Tranny, and Power Steering.
Original paint except where I added an aux fuel door, changed location for the shifter hole for the 4spd, and filled misc. antenna holes.
All glass is original. A few stars in windshield but not in line of sight. No cracked glass.
I built this for a mild wheeling rig and semi-daily driver. All mods where for driveability and human comfort.
Have all receipts for items purchased. Used OEM parts as available. Did work myself or with help from the local Land Cruiser community.
Driveability is excellent. I would have no problem driving across country.
