SOLD Wanted: NC FZJ80 or LX450

  • Thread starter roflbox
  • Start date
  • Watchers 4
Year
1997
Vehicle Model
  1. 80 Series
Mileage
12345
I have scoured Craigslist, FB, and the classifieds here, with no luck.
I am interested in a FZJ80 or LX450. (triple locking not required)
I am based in the 919 zipcode.
Model years: 1995-1997

I am looking for a 80 series that has:
limited to no body rust and chassis rust. (A little surface rust in a few places, but no rot)

High mileage (220K and higher) (with documented headgasket replacement)
Or
Under 220k miles.

I would not be too concerned with a vehicle that needs mechanical work.

Strong preference to an unmodified / blank slate, or lightly modified vehicle

Please DM me or post here with what you have.
Strong preference for a local transaction in NC.
Thanks!

I cannot afford what the low mile triple locked pristine builds have been going for recently :(

top of realistic budget is 12k (for the right cruiser).

Would prefer to buy a unbuilt 80 series for cheaper, and then be able to add some of the fun things to it myself :D

$12k is not a realistic budget for a rust free triple locked FZJ80/LX450, no matter what the mileage

It can be done. I've seen some really nice low mileage Cruisers going for $12K and in excellent condition but those are getting harder to find.

My 1997 is up to 18K for my stupid/can’t resist to sell price. As soon as someone is willing, the price goes up to $23K.

@roflbox I wish you luck in your search. There are still a lot of great cruisers out there at a decent price, it just takes a lot of time and the willingness to move immediately. Read the FAQ for the 80 series and be willing to travel.

I also do not have an aversion to a cruiser that has mechanical issues (head gasket, ETC)
