    If it gets parted and has the correct rear view mirror with two screws, I need it.

    I doesn't look like a bargain to me at $5 grand.

    Has anyone taken a look at this 40? I did a quick forum search and I'm not sure if this has been posted on mud yet: 1977 Fj Cruiser

    Looks like more of a deal than this one.

    Stump, go get that $5k 40!

    I checked it out but it was quick and it has some issues.
    -Spongy brake pedal
    -Rusted rear drivers side rocker panel
    -Rear passenger seats (drivers side) wheel well rust, where the seat belt bolts into the wheel well, completely rusted through and there is no support for the seat belt bolt.
    -A few oil leaks but definitely the oil pump cover.
    -Wet passenger side floor carpet also moldy
    -When shifting to low gear it did not lock the center diff. (Not sure if it was a dash light or the actuator itself)
    -Lots of play on the steering while turning
    -Will need new tires
    -Some rust on the hood itself.
    -Windows roll up slowly
    Thats all in about a 20 minute visit, didn't drive it far also.

    I assume the price is "a bit" high?

    I don't know, but 1 pic, not top etc, leads me to yes, too high.

    He's negotiable on the package.

    Why am I the only one who feels this is a good deal?

    40s are hard to find, this one doesn't look rusty....

    I am not in the market for a 40.

    I'm on the fence on it. It is closer to running now than mine is after a year of work.
