“Toyota Land Cruiser restoration shop offering this 1972 FJ40. I bought this for a customer to restore to his spec, but he got anxious and bought a high end completed Cruiser from me instead, so I’ve decided to sell as I need to sell a couple of them to help finance my two mint Cruisers that are almost completed going to the BJ auction in Reno this Aug. I bought this 72 a couple months ago in the rural high desert of Idaho. This was a barn find. I bought it from the original owner’s family. This truck was parked in the 80’s with believed 67,xxx original miles when the original owner died. The family responded to my wanted add, I had to drag it on 4 flats nearly 5 miles through the sage brush to get it to my trailer. (pic below shows). This truck does not run right now, there was a weak attempt to get it running by the PO a few months ago. The carburetor was removed and is in the front seat, that is where the attempt ended. I will put on 4 tires and wheels that hold air for transport. Finding any stock type Cruiser for restoration is hard at this point, hence the reason I drove 450 miles to get this one. If you are looking for a stock rig to restore to original spec, this is a perfect candidate.”
Wish I lived in Idaho and owned property five miles from anywhere. That’s a crap load of sage brush.
