Default 82 BJ45 Troopy for sale (red)

Like the title says, 1982 Red BJ45 Troopy for sale. It was recently a wildfire truck in Portugal, decommissioned in Sept. & then imported to Houston by me. I drove it back from Houston.

LHD, 12 v 3b, 4 speed roughly 104,400kms.

I just replaced all of the coolant & heater hoses as they were pretty old. That means new coolant as well, and I'm going to be doing the oil/filter soon as well (or if someone buys it before I do it, then you can have the oil & filter for it). The same goes for the gear oil in the diffs, etc...

Truck runs great & everything works as far as I can tell, other than the light on the dash for the glow system. I haven't really dug into that yet.

Overall it is a clean truck, but it does have some problems that I can see.
1. body bent under the drivers area. Looks like they dropped it onto a rock of something & bent the bottom part of the tub inward a bit.
2.Body is really clean, but the floors are rusty as heck for some reason. I'm assuming the fireman kept a pump or something mounted in the back, as much of the floors (pics below) are in horrible shape. At some point, they installed a diamond plate floor over most of the truck. It is well done & sealed to the original floor, but clearly not original. Not really a problem for someone wanting a rig to take into the mountains, as I think it is well done & will last for years. But definitely an issue to consider if you are wanting a super pristine, restored rig. In that scenario, it will need a new floor.
3. it has some rust spots here & there, beyond the above mentioned spots. The amby doors are really solid, but have surface rust all over the bottom. This should be resolved sooner, rather than later, to make sure it doesn't become real cancer.

Asking price is $17.5k, and willing to be a bit creative regarding possible trades, other than I can't do some sort of straight swap, on it.
Thanks,
Abe

Last but not least, floor & rusty floor pics. These pics are all taken from underneath the truck, as you can't see the OEM floor from above, due to the diamond plate floor that was installed over the top of it. The shiny/silvery things you see are the diamond plate floor showing through rusty holes.

Any questions, feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Abe

Saw this truck just yesterday in Nederland. A good looking truck and a stand-up seller.
