The Story

This was my toy truck prior to getting married and I just don't have the time
to invest in it anymore. This truck underwent a 2 year rebuilding and
modification period where all of the above mechanical work was done. I then
drove the truck for about 7 months and then rolled it four-wheeling. Since
that time I have had all the body work done and the truck repainted but I just
don't have the energy to finish putting it back together to sell it. I'm
selling it as is with everything necessary to put it back together and drive
it. Actually you will need to get new weather stripping for the doors/hardtop
and new flares as I tossed the old ones and planned to replace them with parts
from cool cruisers. I estimate it would take someone familiar with cruisers
less than a week to finish putting the truck back together and be driving it.
This is one of the most capable Landcruisers around the combination of the
smooth fuel injection of the Chevy motor, low gearing of the nv4500
and Dana 300 and the dual air lockers make for an amazingly unstoppable truck
unless you exceed the laws of gravity as I found out. I have over $16,000
dollars in this truck and if I put it back together I would be asking
somewhere around that price but to save myself the hassle and time I will sell
it as is for $9,000 or reasonable offer. If you are familiar with cruisers or
any four wheel drive vehicle this is a good opportunity to get an incredible
truck for a reasonable price. Please call or email me with any questions.
