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!

164,840 original miles (has had factory tires and suspension its entire life, so the speedo is accurate)
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
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.
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.
