    I guess for reference...I paid 3900 two years ago for an FJ60 with a clean interior (dash cracked), no rust but some body work needed...and an strong engine that needed some love (cooling system, carb tune, etc)...ended up starting a complete tear down/rebuild but for about 1000.00 in work it would have a been a clean driver...was an ALB NM truck...I just didn't want to deal with rust...
    I agree prices are really rising on the wagons...I thought I paid way too much when I bought mine but now I see PHX CL ads for double what I paid...crazy

    so let me ask you this since original discussion was for how much are you paying for FJ60, anf FJ62. I am in north east, and rust is major issue here as you all know, I am looking at another 1984 FJ60, has 135K on it, there are some body rust , not major, owner already changed cluch, timing belt, and new tires, new Master cylinder. burn little oil, 3/4 quart between oil chnages, his asking price is 5995$. I am not sure what they sale for, what would be the starting Negotiated price?

    Thx

    Default Half of the asking price...

    is where I'd start offering if the vehicle in question is worth even that much. You can always increase your offer, it's a lot harder to go back down.

    I'd be concerned with any vehicle with that kind of mileage using that much oil if the oil is being changed every 3000 miles. If he's been changing it every 5000 or even longer, not as big of a problem but still needs to be addressed if it's burning it and not simply leaking.
