Default Volunteer to look at an '83 FJ40 in Englewood?

A buddy of mine in Iowa has found an '83 FJ40 in Englewood, and would like a knowledgeable cruiserhead to look it over in person for him. The truck looks very sharp, but he'd feel better if someone were there in person. PM me if you can help out. I don't know the timeframe required to see it....

I've attached a teaser pix. Can't say I have seen a lot of '83s with a plow frame on them!

Thanks!

I would look but not much of a cruiser guy. I am sure there will be a few people stepping up. I have seen a few 40'speople with plows, nearly bought one this fall but it had no title. This one looks nice.

That picture looks really familiar but I don't know why

IMO Zepp or Ricardo or Matt or Martin or Brian and some others would be who I'd want to go look at a 40 for me...I own one but I wouldn't trust myself to go look one over

I may need a break from studying on Sunday, and Englewood isn't far away for me. That would make #3 '83 FJ40 that I know of in Denver, so I'm slowly working my way up to the reported 200-300 in existence in the U.S.

Very rare animal indeed, and looks to be in decent condition, shame it has a plow mount on it

If your buddy passes, I might be interested. I am in no hurry or actively looking.

I am not all that up on the 40's but I work down in englewood so might be able to stop by. Do you have an area or cross street?

I was actually in Denver today, picking up some tires from NattyBumpo, so I stopped over there to try & take a look, but that place is only open on Saturdarys, "by appointment only", so nobody was there. The truck must be inside, as I couldn't see any part of it.
If you are posting up the contact info, does this mean your buddy is passing, or is he still interested/considering it?

Also, I can't fing the ad in on Hemmings website. Is it still valid?
Best,
abe
