FOR SALE Toyota Land Cruiser FJ80 (1991), excellent condition, 14 photos, May 2016 in Argentina or Chile, US$9.500


1991 LHD Toyota Land Cruiser (FJ80) conversion to overland/expedition vehicle including ARB bull bar, winch, snorkel, three-inch lift, four extra lights, custom-built platform for bed and storage, and rear cargo carrier with additional gas cans and bicycle mount; a complete list of modifications is below.

The Cruiser is currently in Peru en route to South America and will be available in either Argentina or Chile in May 2016 (with Washington, D.C. plates)

I have spared no expense to keep it in excellent condition. The odometer currently shows 153,000 miles; I will put another 7,000-8,000 miles on it prior to sale. The tires will have approx. 40 percent of tread left and a full spare and crank are included. The exterior is 80 percent; aside from two rust spots on the hood, three flaky spots on the roof, one hand-size dent in the rear bumper, one surface scratch on the rear passenger door and a few minor dings, the body and undercarriage are in very good shape. The interior is in good shape, clean and has no odors or major tears. The dashboard cover is cracked due to sun exposure but all switches, levers etc. on the dashboard work as they should. The heated rear and third seat rows have been removed and are currently in storage in the U.S. but can be included in the sale if desired (buyer pays for shipping only). This Cruiser gets a lot of compliments and its AutoCheck score is ten points above the typical range. A complete list of work done by the previous owner between 2012 and 2014 and by me since September 2014 is included below.
