97 Anniversary 80 for sale in Orange County. Low mileage, locked, good price. Looks fantastic. I’d be all over it if I was in the market. Ugh, so much want!
1997 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER 40TH ANNIVERSARY FZJ80
Sold it to a friend of mine when I moved from New Mexico back to Los Angeles. The truck ended up in NYC.
When I got to LA, I bought this truck, which I had for about 4 years. Just sold it to a guy up in Bishop, CA, who uses it to explore Death Valley.
Used medium/heavy OME spring setup for an FJ60, $300. No affiliation. If I still had my truck I’d be all over this...as a matter of fact, why am I even browsing for parts anymore!?
Agoura Hills (near LA)
I moved to the Laurel Canyon/West Hollywood area about 6 months ago and occasionally drive by this 80 series. Would love to meet the owner and chat. If no one recognizes it I'll go knocking on some doors!
For posterity's sake, I did the fuel tank recall last year at the dealer in Santa Monica, CA. It took them about a month to gather all the parts but they did follow through so I don't think the recall is dead.
Thanks again all, the company just canceled on me, they decided to go in a different direction. Truth be told, this is the third time I’ve been contacted about renting it for a shoot. The last time i lost out to a Vanagon- the director felt it exuded SoCal life more than a 60. Not sure what...
Thanks for all the great suggestions all! I'll report back on what happens. Nothing's confirmed yet, but I've basically agreed to proceed if they want to go this direction. I will keep all of the suggestions above in mind. Maybe this will be my truck's 15 minutes...
OK thanks. They'll provide proof of insurance and the driver's license info, but to your point, getting some type of proof of the condition it's in would be nice to get in writing. Like the scratch and dent diagram with a rental car. I'll look into it, thanks!
