FOR SALE: 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60

See 75+ high res pics below. See even higher res pics here.


1985 Toyota LandCruiser FJ60 out of Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was purchased by the Dad back in 1985 and he gave it to his adult daughter a couple years ago. Before giving it to his daughter he spent nearly $5,000 to get it safe and running. This FJ60 is all original and in excellent mehanical condition.

1-owner FJ60s are hard to come by. This one is in good shape, but like all vintage Land Cruisers, this one has a few issues including:

-A bit of rust

-Dents by the passenger side rocker panel where it appears someone hit a rock on a trail (we’d recommend a simple metal repair and rust repair and then LineX the rockers and 1″ or so around the wheel wells. It would look like this.)

-Dent by rear drivers taillight and a couple small dents on the bumpers (you can still get original replacement bumpers from Toyota)

-Interior carpet needs to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Roughly $1000 to have it done or you can do it yourself for $600 with a full carpet set replacement you can get online

Needs a carb adjustment: runs just fine, but needs to be dialed in. Driven from Albuquerque to Colorado Springs (300 miles) a few weeks ago and ran just fine the whole way.

-Leak coming from the rear main seal. Typical leak…9/10 Cruisers have this leak. $20 part, but most folks wait to do the clutch to replace.

-Small tear in headliner near the back cargo area; headliner could use a cleaning

Here are pics of the dents, minor rust spots, and other issues
