Tired FJ62 Saved from Dump
by Ken Baxter
(Battle Creek, MI)
My son traded a modified bobber to get me my 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser. The previous owner was about to have it towed to the dump for $120/ton, so about $240.
Well, after a little money )mine) and a LOT of work (my sons), we have her on the road and saved from the scrappers.
Yes, the body is rough, but the drive-train and suspension are now solid. I am grateful my son happened to find this beast. I have owned two different 4Runners in the past and he knew I would love this. I do.
Now, if I can just find some of the body parts at a reasonable price, we can have her looking as good as she drives.
