Default what do you think about this 80?

Its a 94 144k, Lockers, white, Been in a wreck, one front fender is a different color, and not quite lined up too good, running board is kinda jacked(but those will be gone anyway ).. Kinda Smelly inside, and a bit dirty, but should clean up alright.

Birfs are not making noise, and dont look too leaky. but the main issues is with the Shifter, i have not driven it yet, but he said the shifter was not working properly (getting suck in Park)

Its only $5000, and im thinking about picking it up to replace my 4 runner.. any insite would be great.. Ive been looking for a bit and would love to pick up a nice LX450 or 96-97 Cruiser with low milage, but this sucker is 1/2 the price, and i dont mind getting my hands dirty fixing her up a bit

You have any pics Trevor?

You know how to do a front axle so thats not a bad job.

You could hem and haw about the tranny and get it for $500 maybe.

A blown fuse will cause that "parking lock" to engage...I think it's the tail-light fuse...or maybe it's the radio/cigarrete lighter fuse...anyways...it's most likely the fuse.

I saw a lx450 in ga I think on rockymountain cruisers for 5k, with 80k miles. Might be worth looking to see if still around.

georgia be warm and sunny with no salt.

The shifter not shifting is most likely a blown brake light fuse. I wouldn't mention this to the seller though. I'd use it for negotiation. At 5k you are almost in parts rig territory. Anything under $4k is what I consider a parts rig. At 4k you can make your money back selling it off piece by piece. That doesn't mean that it is only good for parts but should you get into some sort of bind you could sell it off and get your investment back and you'd learn a ton about 80 series in the process.

IF you are looking here is one I found on autotrader. Has some roof damage and not sure how bad it is. Looks like a tree hit it or something, but worth a look for anyone looking. 102000 miles, locked, and asking for 6k.
