1979 Toyota Land Cruiser Bj40

I am posting my 79 Aussie bj40 for sale. She is a champion and has never let me down and these BJ's are scarce in the US. I posted a while back then, decided to keep her... well a few things have come up and I need to repost her for sale. She is registered in California and never has to be smogged... so for anyone that has tried to register a diesel in California knows how hard that is.
The Good:
13B engine... that is 10 B's more than she came with from the factory.
Unfortunately none of those b's thought to bring a turbo along for the party.... so 13B
upgraded to Front disc brakes
Secure Lock box in the back in place of jump seats.
In the last few years I have done the following work:
New dual battery isolater
New rear drive shaft
new transfer case
New Clutch and flywheel
New thermostat
New springs
New Shocks
New driver side seat upholstery
new Masterbrake cylinder with brake upgrade.
Extra Birfields (New)
Extra Bumper (new)
All old drums and brakes included with purchase
3 of the 4 old leaf springs and shackles and brackets also available
All glass in great condition
Full Float rear end
5K in receipts for work done in oz before purchase.
extra fuel filters and assorted cruiser stuff.
I have bikini top with mounting bracket.
Yakama Roof Rack
RHD and fun to drive.
extra radiator hose
aussie trailer hitch
I replaced tie rods and tie rod ends.
Sand Dune Beige
22-25 MPG
Secondary fuel filter set up.
runs great on bio-diesel.
BF Goodwrench All-Terrains- 60-70% treadlife.
Large bull bar,
Extra set of lap belts,
extra fuel filters,
was my daily driver for 3 years then had to get a car with car seats for the kids. Can go anywhere, but has primarily been a pavement princess as kids keep me close to home.
Title in hand
The Bad
Passenger seat has rip
no headliner
need to replace left ambulance door spring latch in rear- part in hand
small spots with light rust. Nothing major
RHD and fun to drive- may not be some peoples taste but I like her.
If you want more pics or video of anything let me know.
If you are the winning bidder and want me to drive her to you, I would be up for one last road trip before she finds a new home.... not across the country but within reason. Can save you some money on shipping if so.
