Truck has sold and is heading to Colorado. Thanks all to your interest and comments
Selling my dream truck due to health reasons.Help me out here.I bought it a year ago from Hilltop Cruisers in Sundre Alberta Canada where Ryan took special care on keeping it an unrestored original.OEM parts were installed such as lights,mirrors,seals,front fenders etc.He went thru the truck from front to back makeing everything operational.No expenses were spared to make this truck a great running driving rig.We started with a truck with low mileage(72,000) that had been in storage for nearly 20 years.Except for the front fenders being rusty at the lights and nonstock mirrors installed this was a solid no rust truck.Ryan had OEM fenders which he painted and installed.He removed the nonstock mirrors,repainted the doors inside and out,installed new gaskets window tracks etc and reinstalled the doors.The only body part that isn't just right is the top of the cab.There was holes in it for some type of bracket.I found a brand new OEM top which I have not installed yet.Interior is very nice and has the original floor mat.One seat cover is a little torn so I bought all new covers but haven't put on yet.Had gas tank and radiator redone.Guys,This truck even has some of the original paint on the underside of the cab and frame.The box isn't brand new perfect straight but it is solid and no rust through.Looking to get $25,000 out of it which is way less than invested.We all talk about if only a guy could find an unrestored original that isn't rusted out or butchered,but that could never happen.Well,here it is.

Health Reasons.

Sorry for coming off too strong with health issues but I would ask all of you to help me get this truck sold.Thanks in advance for your help and concerns.As far as what the truck is worth lets assume a fair price for it would be 10 to 12 thousand dollars without repairs considering the unrestored condition it was in.Then consider what it would take to make it the truck it is today.Do the math.This truck is a road ready fun to drive head turner.If it helps I'll take 2 thousand off the price and sell the seat covers and brand new OEM top seoeratly.

Think the price for your truck is fair.
Most people don`t do the mathematics, to buy a truck in a good shape is always the cheapest way to drive one.
Good luck and all the best

Reasonable Offer

This great truck has not sold. Will entertain any reasonable offer. By comments from many of you the price is fair. Are things just not selling. Would appreciate your input. Thanks

hhhhmmm i wish i had the coin, that is a really nice looking cruiser. i dont think that your price is too much just....you need to find the right buyer for that price....is it worth it? yes, but with the way things are you will just have to hit the right buyer who has the coin in his jeans and it will be gone

An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay. That said, I really think the TLC ship has sailed as far as commanding good prices for a well maintained rig.

I think you rig is worth what you are asking, but I am also not in a position to purchase a $25,000 FJ45 at this time.

Best of luck in the sale.
