For Sale 1997 Built 80 Series, 3x locked (Tampa, FL)--$17K OBO (1 Viewer)

Tampa, FL

Up for sale is one awesome, well built, much enjoyed 80 series! If you want to overland, explore, camp, travel, bug-out or just simply look like a boss this rig is for you!!! It can be a street queen but please don't punish her like that, she deserves better than that. Only selling because I have a new project and need the driveway space/$$$ for the next project and already have another built rig.

I am the 4th owner of this expedition ready 80 series Land Cruiser and have service records (3in thick!) from all prior owners. She was kept mostly stock until the 3rd owner started modifications to improve off road capabilities. When I acquired her (Dec 2015) I took her a step further. I completed body repairs/paint (color swap from red to black), interior refresh, stereo/speaker upgrades, added a Slee rear bumper, Front Runner roof rack with tons of accessories, snorkel and much more... Has more LEDs and lights than anyone could possibly need and is a head turner everywhere it goes. She is triple locked and has been a blast to drive…runs great and will go anywhere!

*Camping, recovery gear, extra parts and additional accessories can go with it for a turn-key ready to explore vehicle but are not included in asking price. To be honest I don’t need any of it…I have another built rig loaded with gear and don’t need two of everything. I am willing to let it all go for a package deal.

If only it had a turbo and OBA?!? Don't suppose you know anyone that could fix that problem???

This is my old truck. At one time I had one of the original York OBA brackets and a compressor but decided it wasn’t something I wanted to mess with and sold them off.

My plan if we had kept it was an LS swap..

So you wanna buy it back? We considered an LS swap too but that motor runs fine!

I'm surprised it doesn't have a SC. Good looking rig! GLWS
If it doesn’t sell...ya never know, but I would have to get rid of my burrito box aka exhaust manifold food warmer. It is a bit of a conversation piece with the hood open.
