Default 1973 FJ40 with 2F, 4spd, PS

Sold Sold Sold

Selling my FJ40 on Craigslist.
http://westslope.craigslist.org/cto/4000138742.html



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.

You have NO IDEA how much I wish I had some extra cash lying around right now.

You forgot to mention that it has OEM 40 series power steering from a '79 on it.

For those of you who don't know (most of you in RS), I helped with the engine swap stuff. Mostly I did some bodywork to put the aux tank in. I almost cried when I cut into the sheet metal to put the fuel door in, because the body is just so incredibly straight, original and mostly rust free. The pics make the bodywork look a lot worse than I remember in person too.

I'd like to say good luck with the sale, but really I want a pile of extra cash to fall into my lap, and then this would be coming home with me. Yes, even though it isn't a diesel.

GLWS!

Dan

That is a nice 40, sorry you had to let it go.

Just curious, as mine is pretty similar (minus some of the mods and not as clean). Did you get your asking price?

It will make life easier without having to maintain an extra vehicle. But I had to take some after it drove away.

Yes, got asking price. Included extra parts: a 2F carb + carb fan, set of warn hubs, and misc. small items.

Confusing: "New owner explains why it did not stop to chat as I was cutting firewood"

Hmm? New owner was going to do Durango -> Ophir-Telluride-Imogene -> Durango. I thought that was a long drive, especially in a "new to him" vehicle. I hope he changed his mind and ran Endlich Mesa.

It had a IH8MUD sticker on the driver's side rear window, right? If so that was it.
