    Default For Sale: 1977 FJ40 Flat Black "Custom Assault" version...



    This isn't mine, but I'm helping a friend out who in turn is helping her neighbor out trying to sell this. I think a bit of backstory is warranted.





    This vehicle was purchased as a "dream vehicle" for my friend's neighbor's Husband. Honestly, he paid way too much for it ($47k) but it was the vehicle he wanted and he thought it was worth it. Sadly, the Husband passed away early last summer in a river accident while fishing, and the vehicle has largely been sitting since. The wife now has this vehicle sitting in her driveway that is a reminder of her late husband and just wants it gone. After talking to some more reputable Land Cruiser people, they realize its not worth anywhere near what they paid for it, so the price is reduced heavily to $19,500.


    I don't know the full story of the vehicle, but the short version is that evidently some Hollywood executive type saw a Landcruiser in a Tomb Raider movie and liked the look of it, so he hired someone to make one for him. Its not a movie prop, but its supposed to emulate one and still be something you can drive around and 4 wheel.


    The body is super clean with very little rust (a bit on the bottom door sills but the actual tub is clean), its got a bit of a lift, 33" tires and a stock engine. It currently has an ARB Bumper with a winch too. Soft Top looks nearly new too, as well as the seats and other aspects of the interior.


    Here is the Craigslist add for it.... http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/5287173473.html


    I promised my friend that I would post up on a few sites for her, so if this looks interesting to you then definitely contact her via the contact info on Craigslist.
