Realistically, given current market values - what do you guys think this truck is worth. Not trying to poke fun at the seller - rather get a snapshot of what is going on in the FJ40 market. He's been trying to sell it for a while, so clearly the market is not meeting his price. However, I have seen some crazy pricing in 40's at the hands of crazed hipsters trying to get into the 40 cult - but this is clearly not what some hipster is going to hand over their cash for as it present no opportunity to pose in as they can't drive it. LOL.

I am constantly scanning Craigslist for Land Cruisers, as far out as 6 hours away and 40 60 and 80 prices have all been climbing steady for the past 2.5 years. The 40 are increasing the most. I am talking about asking prices, which are far different than selling prices, but still rising. A 40 that was $3,500 3 years ago is well in to $6-8K now ASKING PRICES.

The one above, not much body that is there that is clean, I suspect the doors to be in the same shape. There are more frames floating around than tubs so a running roller is not that unique.

$500 tops if I was buying and that would only be because I had a buyer for enough parts to cover my initial investment and transport costs.

NCFJ and others - I agree 100 percent.

I want this truck to stretch the frame - rather start with something not nice. I have a 69 frame that looks new but would rather not cut it up.
