For Sale Southern California 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 GX

Vehicle Model
  1. 60 Series
1989 FJ62 White $35K OBO - no trades please - link to google photo album below

Current mileage 290,9XX

Original owner had the car until just under 267K miles. Widow sold to a guy in WA. He drove it from Sparks, NV to Tacoma, WA. I purchased 12/2015 and drove it from Tacoma, WA to Los Angeles, CA.

I have a stack of maintenance receipts from 12/1998 to 2/2015 from the original owner. Like clockwork, this couple had the oil changed and tires rotated every 3,000 miles. If you would like to see a summary of maintenance with shop name, date, and mileage, just let me know. Since I have owned it, I have continued with proper maintenance.

Paint is not original. There was a respray done with the original owner. See google photo album for pics of minor rust spots and paint condition near front turn signals.

Immediately after purchasing, compression numbers were checked. 170, 180, 175, 175, 170,180. The oil galley plug fix was completed. All fluids were replaced. Valve adjustment.

Vehicle runs very smooth, and I don’t hesitate to drive it long distances. Driven from LA to Cabo and back, multiple trips to Northern Baja, Utah, Arizona, Northern California. No problems.

Everything works. AC, Heat, Stereo, 4x4, defrost, wipers, radio antenna, etc.

Original dash was cracked but I replaced with another. Original driver seat has a tear but I removed both front seats and replaced with BMW 3 series seats using a kit from TOR Fab. Carpet, door cards, rubber, rear seat, and headliner all in great condition. Added front tuffy console with 12v aux power outlet for second row. Added Toyota grab handles to each door to match stock driver side.

No rust on the frame. There are a couple small paint bubbles that I took pictures of in the Google photo album.
