Time to sell my beloved 40.. I rarely drive it anymore.

I've also had various 60s & 80s in the past and still have my 96 80 series w/ factory lockers, OME lift, ARB bar, wench, sliders and my 05 100 series w/ OME lift. So thankfully I will not be out of Land Cruisers!

The one I am selling was my first and I bought it in the late 90s. It was someone else's project of partially assembled parts. Danny Warden in Placerville, CA did some of the work and I did the rest.

I drove it on the street occasionally and did do the Rubicon for a few years and some other runs with the TLCA. The last few years it has been parked inside my warehouse but still driven occasionally.

I have struggled with pricing as I am finding it is all over the board. It's not a frame off restoration type Cruiser. But it is one that could be driven daily to just about anywhere and is ready hit the Rubicon again.

George Esterer from FC Fabrication in Stockton, CA was nice enough to take a look at my 40. I have been out of the loop for a while and it was good to see all his great work being done! He suggested I post here.

So I am asking $12,000.

Here is a link to a lot of pictures and it has a Word document included.
