I'm going to have 3 cars and have decided they're all going to be cruisers. I was thinking a 40, 60 and an 80 but I just love the 80 body style so much. So here's my question, I found a 1991 cruiser with 210 K I'm interested in. He bought it in 1995 with 40k on it and a salvage title. Hasn't done much to it, hasn't had any troubles with it. Seems like a fine looking truck and the guy seems like he stayed mostly on top of normal fixes. He wants $3,500 for it and I don't see many around for that price.

With all this said would you look for a FJ62 over this or does the price seem fair enough to make it worth while? Anybody in NM that can take a look at this one for me?

Seems high for 210k AND a salvage title. I got mine for $3500ish with a clear title and 165k (last year). That does look cosemetically better then though..

See if you can get him to drop it a little. . .

Yeah that was sort of what I was thinking, even at $2,000 it would still need $1,000 in work so I think I'll pass. You just don't see a ton of deal on cruisers and the Sub-$3,000 isn't really there.

Oh sorry, i apologize. Your sig line didnt show the 96 so i didnt know you had one. Well we had a 92 once, same color. My brother wrecked it at 50 mph, fell asleep at the wheel....not a scratch, to him that is. They are still tanks.
