1978 FJ40 for Sale or Trade
The first two pics are how it looks now for summer. I have the hard top stored in my garage.
New 350 crate motor (last pic) was installed in december. I am looking for the exact specs on the motor but it has scorpion roller rockers, comp cam push rods, scat crank, all clevite bearings, machined aluminum valve covers, edelbrock 2102 performer rv cam, polished performer intake, mild porting on GM heads, new edelbrock carb. It has now 2,000 miles on it. The truck overall has about 130k. I have used it as my daily driver for the last year and before that it was just my toy. I have a new baby and it's not practical right now. I need something with 4 doors and AC living in las vegas it gets hot.
I am really looking to TRADE or SELL this FJ40. In reality it's worth what someone will pay for it...but I think this truck is worth between $8,000 on the low side and $12,500 on the high. I am looking for 95-05 4 runner or FJ80, FJ60. Hopefully with less than 120k miles. Let me know what you have or make me an offer.
