Vehicle Model
  1. 40 Series
I’ve had this fine 40 for about 12 years. Her name is Blanca and she has 123,109 miles. She has a clean and clear title. I bought in in the SF Bay area and it is now in Tucson, AZ. I have put about 25,000 miles on her. I would not hesitate to hop in this rig and head to the east coast or wherever actually, it runs great and is full of new or semi new items. It has a fully intact smog system but I don’t know if it will pass a smog test as it is not required where I have had it registered. Breaks my heart to sell her but It is time to downsize the fleet keeping my UZJ100 and LX570.

Some of the items it has from before I purchased it but mostly afterword: Front shackle reversal, 4 inch lift, Greaseable shackles, 4Plus products rear bumper and tire carrier, Full Roll Cage, Bimini Top once roof removed (note that the last time I had the top off I put is back with all new weatherstripping and seals...tightest 40 I have ever owned),Sirius XM Ready, Sound Ordnance Subwoofer, Driving lights, Tuffy console with door actuated interior lighting voltmeter and charging ports, MC4 connectors for solar panel quick connect, Carpet kit over top of Rhino lined Tub (Quiet interior), Factory jack and toolkit, Hi-Lift Jack, Rancho adjustable shocks, tachometer, vacuum gauge, New window regulators, New aftermarket door cards, and more.

Here are some items and the approximate thousand miles since I installed the items/performed the service: New Smog Air Pump 10K....New Alternator 10K....New gear reduction starter 5K.... Cylinder head, gasket, complete valve job 20K....Rebuilt Carb 20K....New Fuel Pump 2K....New water pump, belts, thermostat, radiator, hoses, pink Aisin coolant power steering pump 3K....Rebuilt transmission and transfer case by Georg Esterer at Valley Hybrids 1K....Tires and wheels 4K.....rebuilt distributor, Points, and plugs 8K....New Headliner. Window tint, New windshield 9K.....all fluids 1K....Master cylinder and brakes 15K.
Dare I ask the price you have in mind for beautiful Blanca?
agreed, one of the few left at a reasonable price!
This popped up on my Facebook notifications today, wow what a beauty! Why are all the good ones on the other side of the country from me? I bought a mint 100 series a few years ago from a guy in San Diego and he actually drove it all the way across country to me in east Tennessee. He had just retired and wanted to visit his sister in Nashville so I bought him a plane ticker back to San Diego, what's the chances?
