I just scored this 1978 BJ40, was stored for the last 5 years looks ok fuel is bad from sitting was driven in to temp controlled storage. Vin tag missing so no paint codes etc. Frame looks good. Let the adventure begin.
Thanks for letting me in.

Looks like it might be from central/south America?
It was in storage on Marco Island i bought for 12,500. I may have paid too much but frame good body good everything else I found in this price range was trashed but if I did pay too much oh well.

Wow, frame and body look pretty decent for being stored down that way. I bet with draining the fuel and new filter she might start up!! I have had to replace tanks on some older ones due to rust in tank but get it running first and see what you have when you drain tank.

Congrats and welcome to the addiction:flipoff2:

I have thought about hidden messes will have to deal with them but I’m happy I’ve been looking for a long time and really wanted a diesel

Did you go over it with a magnet? Hopefully it didn't have low budget bondo bodywork done at the same time. Looks CA/SA to me. No heater, dash pad, or roll bar.
