BaT Auction: 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 at No Reserve

This 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser spent time in Connecticut before being acquired by the current owner in 2015. The truck was subsequently refurbished with work including corrosion repair, a repaint in white, an interior refresh, and replacement of the carpeting. Power comes from a 4.0-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case, and equipment consists of factory 15″ steel wheels, manually-locking front hubs, a snorkel, mud flaps, and power windows. The brake fluid was flushed and the engine oil changed in preparation for sale. This FJ62 is offered at no reserve by the seller on behalf of the current owner with a clean Carfax report and transferable Rhode Island registration.
