Here is what I am looking for:

Pre-76 FJ 40 Land Cruiser. I want a rig that is NOT in need of a major restore. Little things here or there are OK, but I have a new baby, and I cant spend all my time in the garage. Of course I would prefer one with an engine swap on 33's or larger, geared, locked, etc. Must be street legal. PM me and let me know what you have.

Im not interested in any other trades. Ive wanted an FJ40 for a long time, and Im content with my 4runner, so I am willing to wait. Thanks

Please Reply to this thread or PM me. Thanks!

What is it about pre-76 that floats your boat?
In California we dont have to smog our vehicles if they are model year 1975 or earlier. I dont want to deal with smogs, especially if the engine has been swapped.
10-4 that. A built 1sr gen would be ideal for my family of 5, but not until my built '77 40 is sold...
Thats what I was hoping for, somebody who wants to change into a wheeler that can fit 5+ gear.
I think my soft top is a '75...i'll have to check the door tag tho.
I got it in new mexico a few years ago. The stock 2 f was rebuilt by the po, I have all the reciepts.
I swapped in an h41 and early tcase.

I'll look and get back to you if it's a '75
Also PM send me some details and pics. Thanks
send me your email plz?

i checked at lunch, it's door tagged sept 05. but titled 76. i suppose i could get that changed if cali goes by title over door tag. it's got a disc brake front end that i presume is original to the vehicle
hard top and doors, and a pakistani oem soft top and bows.

Yes, selling it is an option, but I love the rig, so for some reason trading it for my dream rig just seems easier.

However, I would sell it for $7500
Will do. I will be out of town until Saturday. Where are you located? Thanks

I'm still interested in a trade! I only wheeled it once this summer on a mild "6" rated trail!
Its been a while, and I think I have driven it once in the past 4 months- runs perfect... any interest?
i have a 72 fj40 -locked rear with 35 mtr, 488 gears also have 4 speed and power steering ready to be installed
call me @ 679 7455
