My buddies looking to buy a LC here in Kelowna...

72 FJ40, 123k (I think), bone stock, engine seems strong, tub is gutted from rust and the frame is cracked through near the rear spring perches (both sides)
The guy is asking 1600

Opinions?

now I am no expert but I do know that the steel on those frames is almost a quarter inch thick. In order to be cracked in front of the hangers like that I would say that it has been ABUSED hard. he could probably find one in better shape for less. just my opinion

wheels, passenger side, roof, drivers side, wheels. am I broken? no . that was fun!

I hiust went through the same thing while looking for another project.
Thats to much money for one thing.
Cruiser frames can rust where that one has rusted, when they do it's junk.
I however do have a very nice frame for sale!!!!!
Walk away from this one, if you want a project try looking for a 75 or newer.
This way you can get the 2F 6cyl with the much better oiling system, ambulance doors, 4-speed tranny, disc brakes, stronger frames, ect.

Well, he bought it this afternoon when I was in class

Anyways, he ended up getting it for 1325 and I guess the guy had some landcruiser frames sitting in the yard (like 3-4 of them) and he threw that in as well. Don't know why he didn't mention it earlier though...

Anyone have a project one for me for a cheap price???

It seems that I worded my last response wrong..

He got one frame thrown in on the deal. But he said the guy had a couple more in the yard (as well as some steel replacement tubs). I can try to get that guys number if you want. Or you can drop by his shop if you're in Kelowna at all

Sorry about the repeated messages.
I guess I was stuttering.

Where are you exactly?
Near the trans canada?
Trucking the frame isn't very costly if I can find someone to throw it on with a load.

I totally understand the need to source your parts locally.
If you want to know the price just make me a low offer, that would probably be the price.
