Talked to the owner today, he has not been able to reach his brother who is 1/2 owner, tried to get me to throw out an offer..........what is your thinking as to worth?
My thinking is $500 start and max $750, he says they have the trans and t/case however I have not seen it yet.

I think that's reasonable, right around what I paid for my first, more complete but much more rotted 25. Tranny and transfer are a plus, if you get them you'll want to keep it original. ;) If you do that, you're not too bad off, besides the regular unobtainium (bows, doors, carb, caps, bumper etc.) you're only missing FJ25 specific items like vacuum wiper motors, rear emblem and wheels.
