    Guys,

    I am looking to buy a FJ62 with the following:

    1. No to little rust
    2. Good condition
    3. Must have working AC
    4. Good daily driver
    5. Must have transferable title

    That's it. I have found a few on here but they geared more for hitting the trails or trailer queens.

    I just need a good driver that I can load up the kids and head out on adventures.

    I am looking for cruisers that I can fly to purchase and drive back to Texas. Thanks!

    Response to "Plenty in Texas"

    Mike,

    Where? There is a $14000 one in Houston. None in Austin. None in San Antonio. None in Dallas. One in Temple that needed work.

    The closest one I've found is a great one in Atlanta but it doesn't have AC.

    If you can tell me where they are in Texas, I'd appreciate it.

    I have one I'm just about to post, but I'm in BC. The truck is from OR/CA.

    It's up.

    BTW--the AC blows cool, not but cold. I only have one can of freon here, and it takes more than that...and I know nothing about the retrofit. But the system seems sealed just not as effective as it would've been in 1989 :)

    If you are not in a big hurry a friend in about to sell the "raffle 62"

    It is probably the most restored/tastily modded 62 around. I wish I had the room for it.

    That's a nice cruiser, Maverick!

    Lowell- The one thing to really watch on 62s is the auto tranny. They go out and are difficult and $$$$ to reliably rebuild. That's why I got a 60, FWIW.

    Yea but the 62s have fuel injection
  18. I know you're looking for a 62, but I just decided to list my '87 60. It's in great shape but is not modified and certainly no trailer queen. It's been a daily driver for me and is totally reliable. AC works fine, but it is a 4 speed manual with crank windows and manual locks.

    I'm in the Southern tier of New York just on the PA border of I-84. Not so close to TX, but thought I'd put it out there for ya.

    Ain't that the truth, my rebuild was $4000. Next time I am going to convert to a H55f and save some cash!!
