Overview

This 1983 FJ60 is in very good condition with lower-than-average miles, and minimal rust. The interior, including the carpet and the original upholstery, is very clean and in excellent shape. Features an old-school Pioneer AM/FM Cassette deck radio with matching Pioneer 10-Disc CD changer installed under the driver’s seat.

Highlights

  • Low miles, only 154k original miles
  • Coolant, temp sensor, thermostat, thermostat gasket, and thermostat housing gasket just replaced
  • Start right up
  • Rare sky blue color
  • Interior in excellent condition
  • New carpet in the rear
  • This Land Cruiser has spent most of it’s life in the dry climate of Colorado
  • Thule cross bars (no key for it though, sorry. You can order one online though for around $10).

Known Issues

  • The previous owner tried to fix the windshield wiper motor and ended up buggering up a delicate clip where the motor mounts to the window wiper crank arm. I have the part, just haven’t had the time to fix it. If you take care of it, I’ll take $250 off the price of the FJ.
  • Needs a carb rebuild and the timing could benefit from an adjustment. Estimated around $200-300.
  • Front axle leaks a smidge (typical issue). I usually rebuild the front axle and thus fix this issue when it’s time to do the brakes up front.
  • Rear main seal leaks a smidge (typical issue). I usually replace these only when the clutch needs to be done (It’s a $25 part, but almost a full day’s work to replace).
  • Paint is fading a bit and there are a few scratches here and there
  • Headliner torn in the back right corner. Might be able to be stitched?
  • Choke cable needs to be hooked back up (whoever rebuilds the carb can do this easily)
  • This is not an issue, but it’s worth pointing out…there is no A/C on this FJ60. It wasn’t removed…it was just never installed. It was an option in 1983, and was not ordered on this FJ.
  • Front windshield cracked. Around $150 to replace from any local windshield shop.
  • Windshield reservoir squirter motor not working (unsure of the issue).

Seller’s Description:

I rebuilt this FJ for my son to drive so I spared no expense in going thru the complete drive train were all pulled and taken apart and went thru. Every worn part was replaced and a complete gasket set for every part was installed. Everything was steam cleaned and repainted. Every hose and belt was also replaced. The radiator was professionally steamed and checked as well. it fires up after sitting for a month and runs great. It has a very few spots of rust starting to develop on front fender but its minor. Over $3,000 in just parts were spent in getting this Fj in top shape. it comes with bikini top and a hard top with ambulance doors . The only thing this cruiser needs is a new stabilizer shock and that’s it.

SOLD! 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60, 164k miles

SOLD! 1984 Toyota LandCruiser FJ60

This 1984 60 Series FJ is in very good condition. Used at a cabin as a hunting vehicle in the mountains for the past several years, it has lower than average mileage at only 164,840 miles.

Even though it’s been rhino lined on the outside, according to the previous owner the rhino liner was not applied to cover up any rust and the body was rust free before the application was done. Going around the body and inspecting it closely and banging on the metal in the usual problematic areas appears to confirm that the body is indeed in very good condition.

This FJ60 is ready for daily use!

[metaslider id=12296 percentwidth=100]

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Valve cover gasket and valves adjusted recently
  • New WARN hubs
  • Lower miles at 164k
  • Mostly original
  • 1-2″ lift with 31″ M/T tires with lots of tread life
  • High lift jack mounted to front bumper
  • Rear rifle rack
  • Old school chrome roof rack
  • Mechanically strong; starts up every time
  • Body has very little rust; only spot seems to be on the inside of the tailgate
  • The head looks like it has been removed and bead blasted; so assuming the head gasket was done not too long ago as it’s nice and shiny and from the valve on down, free of any oil leakage

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • A couple leaks in the usual places; nothing major and nothing most FJs don’t have
  • Idling a little high; could use an adjustment
  • Clutch pedal needs adjustment

PHOTO SLIDESHOW:

[metaslider id=12298 percentwidth=100]

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Two toned silver color – not sure if this is a factory two tone, but the paint job is so good on the darker tone, that it’s really hard to tell
  • Original paint
  • Body is very clean and straight
  • Interior is all original and unlike most of the FJ60s out there, it has no tears in any of the seats including the problematic left side of the driver’s seat
  • Newer Kenwood radio with AM/FM/USB/Line In/Pandora; newer speakers in front
  • New front windshield
  • New plugs and wires, carb rebuilt, new water pump, new radiator, new air and fuel filters, new shocks and bushings, rebuilt smog pump, and new shocks
  • A/C blows cold
  • New window tinting (which is tight and looks great)
  • Little things like the fact that the center hubs in the back that say “Toyota” are in Mint condition with no fading of the paint
  • Power steering in excellent working order (most FJ60s need the steering pump rebuilt)
  • Runs 70 miles per hour down the interstate.

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • The only rust spots are near the lower part of the passenger door on the fender and a couple other small spots that are superficial. Makes for a great candidate for a full restoration or to drive as-is.
  • Rear bumper has lost some of the chrome on the top part, but is still very straight. New Toyota bumpers are still available through Toyota and throughout eBay.
  • Has a small crack on the top of the dash smaller than a dime and a few pin holes near a couple of the vents; all things considered the dash is an 8/10 as most of the factory dashes have giant splits in them. You can always purchase a dash cover, as well.
  • Driver seat is dirty; a professional upholstery cleaning should resolve this
  • Rear speakers are now hooked up properly. Not sure if they’re blown or simply just not hooked up right.
  • Door panels are a 6/10. They have some fading and cracking of the vinyl material. You can still find good used ones for around $100 a piece and they’re easy to install.
  • Original leaf springs are flat (as are most FJ60s). Replacement leaf springs or lift kits readily available.
  • Needs an alignment; the steering wheel is a bit off center when you drive it straight down the road
  • Choke light burned out ($5 light bulb)
  • One of the previous owners must have installed something on the dash, because there are four holes left of the glove box. A talented auto detailer could repair this and touch it up.
