Black · 8 Cylinder · 44,125 miles

Fellow toyota lovers, this is a great weekend warrior for someone looking for all the function on the trail and still turn some heads while around town. Short story, I've got a 1976 Jeep in the backyard with a new motor in the garage. I need to put money and time in one direction. My wife and kids asked me to chose and the jeep has sentimental value and quite honest the parts are cheaper.

Back to the Landy, It's got a new chevy 350 vortec crate motor, new toyota 4 speed manual transmission w/ advanced adapters bell housing, new transfer case, new drive lines front and rear, new 4 core aluminum radiator. New brakes, new clutch slave cylinder, new electrical relays and aux fuse panel. ARB on board air compressor and front air locker. All the major mechanical are in good/excellent condition and replaced within the last 2 years. The first $12-$15K of your build budget and 2 years of time is done. It starts everytime, blinks, brakes, turns, and cools itself without any improvising on your part. Its legal, safe, and most of all reliable. 

Emissions Update- It has passed the maricopa county visual inspection for emissions. I'm working on the tune to get it to pass the sniffer. It is a legal non-catalyst version and it's a challenge to get 8 cylinders to run as lean as the original 6 and compare to other vehicles in the same year group that typically had catalytic converters. It may need classic car insurance in leu of passing 100%. 

Other goodies, recent Besttop softtop and soft doors, CB radio and antennae, 5 point harness/seats, fully welded roll cage, full size spare tire. It's trail proven and has been to Crown King and back in the middle of summer without overheating. The paint is a heavy coat of matte finish black. It's a daily driver if your willing and has been fully proven to haul two boys, one dog and two bikes to Soccer Practice, Football Practice, the community fishing ponds, and grocery store. My other daily driver is my mountain bike / road bike. About the only way I can justify the gas in this beast is to ride my bike to work two days a week. 

If your looking for "that" one that sold at Barrett Jackson for $80K, this isn't it. If your looking for the comfort of coil springs, air conditioning, bluetooth, and navigation, this isn't it. This is nostalgia not JK nausia.

It IS from 1978. If it hasn't been replaced recently it is subject to being just plain old. It drives exactly like a 1978 with 12.5 inch wide tires. It could use a new headlight switch ($80 Wow!) if you want the dash lights to dim properly. Bring all offers, clean/clear title in hand. I put an asking price but the rig is worth to you what it's worth, come take a look and make an offer. I gladly negotiate face to face with qualified buyers. I'm available most M-F evenings after 5 and weekends by appointment.

Thanks for looking!
