Wow that is nice. You know they probably paid half that, too.

Probably... Looked them up, "wholesale" dealer in Tallahassee. Anyone know what the rust areas are on Cruisers? Always loved them...

Nice. We're they trades or were they sought out? Would be curious to get this groups thoughts on old FJs??? Regardless of where your loyalties lie, this is gorgeous. And I assume the Japanese built them quite well...

$21k and already starting to rust. FJ40s are just as bad as D90s with rust. I guarantee youll have some nastiness starting up under all that shiny diamond plate. Its pretty cool but not $21k cool.

Thats not a real FJ. Its something Icon builds. You can make one yourself. Aqualu makes the frames and bodies.

Sorry I grabbed the only pick to come up, the 45's had a few thousand four doors made! Along with two door trucks!

Youre talking about the 45 wagon. Those are definitely cool trucks. Not many left since they rust so fast. I like 60s. I had a sweet 83 BJ60. Probably shouldnt have sold it but needed the extra money for school. All Cruisers are appreciating. Even rusty 60s are going for $4k to $6k

So if I ever come across a "dime a dozen" 40, where are the rust areas to look for? Just seems like they are still "findable" in barns and used car lots...

Typical rust spots are the rear quarters. Front floor pans and inner front fenders. My buddy has had a few and those are the areas I always have to fix. 22k for that truck it better cook you breakfast and blow you after!!!

Basically any area covered with the diamond plate has probably already rusted. In one of the photos of the front floor pan you can see the floor is pitted badly and has just been covered up with black paint. Also a few photos of the rear seats you can see rust appearing in some of the seams. Realistically with the current market you can get an amazing FJ40 in the $15K range with a little patience. Toyota never used a very good steal quality with these old rigs and they will disintegrate before your eyes unless you are careful.

Yea that cruiser to a cruiser fan is the equivalent of one of those "strangerover" eBay monstrosities to a rover fan. Looks nice to the non aficionados but so many little and big things wrong with it.

I had a 78 FJ40 for a while. Loved that truck. It was rusting all around the rear portion of the frame and cross member. Also the paint was bubbling up on both rear quarter panels above each tire. Usual spots for a vintage vehicle in Illinois.
