FJ40 plus parts.... sold...

It's just not a good time for me to have a project right now, and I can't seem to stop spending money on "great deals", so the project has got to go. I have a solid, running and drivable 78 FJ40, a complete 78 parts truck, and an 85 FJ60 with a solid drive train. All these must go. I would prefer to sell as a package.

The 78 driver, is from Utah and is very solid. It's not perfect, but would be a great driver or wheeler. There are some bubbles on the rockers, and that's about it. The floors are perfect. The front fenders look like they've been repaired with a bit of bondo. Mechanically, it could use a little tuning. I've driven it a half dozen times to work, and have not had any problems. That's about a 40 mile round trip. The only thing I've noticed is the idle will change. Some days it idles perfect, other days it will idle high. I think the carb just needs to be cleaned or rebuilt. The rest of the fuel system is pretty new. It had a brand new tank and lines installed before I bought it, and I just replaced the fuel pump a few weeks ago. The po also installed all new brakes front and rear. They work very well. Comes with a hard top with ambulance doors, the soft top from the parts truck, and a bikini top. I only have full hard doors for it.

The 78 parts truck appears to be complete, and has some great parts that I had planned on pulling for the good truck. It has a pretty nice soft top. It needs some zipper attention, but there are no holes or tears. It has an aftermarket carb, which eliminates all the emmissions and vacuum crap. It also has a header, and a pretty new 4" skyjacker lift kit. You can still read the part numbers on the spring packs. I have no idea what condition the engine is in. It didn't have a radiator or fuel pump when I got it, and the transfer case was apart. The body is pretty rough. The entire tub has panels riveted on, to cover the old rust. The front clip, and cowel are in pretty good shape. I had considered keeping the frame and front clip and back halving it.

The 85 is strickly for the engine trans and t-case. All are a easy swap into the 78.

Every thing is located in Grand Rapids

I've attached what pics I already have on the computer. I'll take some more later. If you have any picture requests, let me know.

More Pics... http://www.flickr.com/photos/2338212...7606171810652/

I AM NOT looking to part these out at this time. I would prefer to sell them all as a package.

Prices are all over on these things, but I think the driver alone is worth 3-4k. I would like to get $4000 for the whole package plus $500 for the trailer if all bought together.





I have this listed on other sites and forums for $4500 + $500 for the trailer. Automatic discount for GL members.

I'll let you know. I've had a bit of interest in everything as a package, so I won't be seperating unless no one comes through.

Thanks.
