1985 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60

1985 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 60
Silver with blue/gray interior
237,000 miles
4 speed manual transmission
Rust-free body and frame, Runs great, 4wd engages perfectly, Old Man Emu (OME) lift, clean original interior -- clean title in hand!
I love this truck and can't believe I'm selling it, but a 2nd child on the way means a 4Runner or Highlander makes more sense. This truck looks and drives awesome, turns heads, and generates thumbs up wherever it goes. I've been daily driving it since November. I bought it from a fellow FJ60 owner in Chicago and the carfax shows its earlier life in Florida, Georgia, and Colorado -- which leads to its rust-free body and frame, which is increasingly difficult to find in the Midwest. It has high miles, but these 2F engines run forever with proper maintenance.
It's a perfect car for a newer driver: super cool, but big and slow. They are basic trucks and I've had fun learning how to work on it with the help of a great online community: IH8MUD dot com

It functions great, but does have a few fixable issues that comes with being 31 years old. The interior dome lights and rear wiper do not work, dashboard has cracks (can be covered with pre-fabricated cap for about $100), paint shows its age.

*Seller's Note 9/2/16: I did not know about the Insurance title claim until the vehicle report was posted on eBay. It was not included in the accuVIN report that I ran prior to purchase and will forward to interested parties. I want to be transparent. Truck is in excellent condition for being 31 years old and I have a clean Illinois title in hand that does not state rebuilt or insurance claims.
