    Hey guys,
    With me going off to college, my parents hoping to escape California, and the Forest Service being a bunch of assholes, our family is selling our cabin, which means the old FJ40 is probably going to go with it :( Love that cruiser, learned to drive on it. Its clunky and loud and slow, but man is it fun!
    Ours is a red 1976 FJ40 in pretty good condition. We'll do some cleaning and such, but it runs very well. The one pictured below is NOT OURS but it looks the same, just a bit shinier. About how much do these old cruisers go for?

    Depends on the condition, seen hacked up ones going for $2k-$3k. Original but in need of work starting from $5k

    If you say yours is a little cleaner than this one ,original ,w/working equip. I'd say that 8k-9k wouldn't be totally out of the park
