Hi all,

I am looking at an 80's fj60 and was wondering what these things roughly are worth. It looks to have the ususal rust in the ususal places and have way too small tires and wheels, but what are the other things to look at? It has less than 200 thousand kilometers on it as well so, that may be a factor. I have a 4runner but am unfamiliar with these trucks, other than by reputation. Looking for any and all opinions.

FYI, the factory diesel 60's were either an HJ60 or a BJ60 corresponding to the 6cyl 2H engine or the 4cyl 3B engine, respectively. Value is highly dependent on condition. Where are you located? pics would be good!

So it turns out that the truck is an 83 with the 3b and a five speed manual. Very rusty underneath. I'm located in Ontario so it has seen 23 winters of salt, etc. The engin only has 135,000 kilometers on it though. So i'll try an offer and see what happens i guess. Anyone interested in the engine and tranny\transfer?

My thoughts exactly on the rust making the rest of the vehicle worth little. I may try to pick it up for the engine tranny/transfer and may look at transplanting it into my 4runner, or just put it up for sale here.

That's right, try to make a quick buck on us Cruiser fanatics :)

I sold my 85 BJ60 with 484K km's on it this past summer for $3,200 US. It was a great driving rig and was rusty. Not beyond repair but rusty. The guy that I sold it to, is restoring it. He is a better man than me.
