    This was a California vehicle, rust free fj 40 with a 327 Chevy conversion. Original desert tan paint. The vehicle was in an unfortunate accident and repair costs are beyond me. Body work alone is estimated to be $4,000. The engine not smog legal so it has been removed. Transfer case was moderately damaged. Many other parts are in great shape, and rear of tub is totally rust free.

    I would really like to get this thing out of my garage in total. I dont want a lot of money I just want someone to haul it away. Many parts have been removed, cleaned and stored to prevent any rusting. Orignial radio still worked when I removed and stored it!

    Any good homes out their for this treasure?

    Where are you located? Are you parting it out or selling the entire thing? Are the hardtop sides any good? I need a driver's side panel if it's in good shape.

    Sorry, Im in the SF bay area, california.
    I paid the insurance company $1500 to save it from the junk yard.

    Rear body panels are in great shape, Sorry the roof is not good, due to rusty rain gutter.

    I may be interested in the rear tub and the rear wiring harness. Is the tub complete from the seam behind the seats? What do you want for the tub? harness? Are the hardtop sides in good condition? Doors?

    Thanks.
