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!

Seems like a good deal. I live in Burke and can check it out for someone who is serioua about it.
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.

Buy it now almost $1K for a pair of old style doors- wow!!!!
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.

Hacked up dash, rusty engine and bay, mismatched body and frame, bent and dented right rear 1/4, no doors/top, drum brakes... My guess is $3500, tops.

Are our axle housings really that small? Seriously, I don't remember. And, I can honestly say I've never seen an engine bay coated in bed liner. Might be a bitch to ensure good grounds!
