For Sale: 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 in Valencia, California

Vehicle Description

Great Rero -Ride!  lots has been done, some more additional needed

* All the Smog Equipment has been removed by a prior owner, so cannot be registered in California (please check your State to confirm local regulations)

Odometer is wrong due to the last owner replacing the console and it came to me with ZERO miles.  

Drives well, starts easy and moves smoothly.  Not looking to profit, just break even on what I put into it and let someone else finish the restoration.
