I realize that beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I am really amazed at the creative licensing used in the descriptions of FJ40s for sale. As a case in point here is an example of one described as "Excellent." 1977 TOYOTA LANDCRUISER In House Financing For Those Who Qualify -... Holy crap I'd hate to see a "Good!" So is there a diffinative standard, such as Kelly Blue Book, or is it all ad hoc, smoke and mirrors?

I don’t think you realize that very little human input was used for this ad.

almost looks fully auto generated minus the very basics and photos.

but yeah... pretty damn lame.

I believe that is an original Dunlop snow cruiser on that spare. Looks to have never touched the ground.

My roll cage looks a lot like the one on that...

I'm suddenly a little more confident in my roll cage.

1978 model-year.
There isn't a windshield washer nozzle on the windshield frame that I can see, what makes it a '78 vice '77?

Windshield washer moved to the top of the windshield with the 78 model (9/77).

No washer nozzle on the top of the windshield makes it a 77 model. The VIN is listed towards the bottom of the ad. FJ40255505 makes it 8/77, a late 77 model.
