The Cruiser is plated, but has not been inspected. It is probably 80% street legal for NY. The propane is tuned well – very little exhaust odor and doesn’t attract flies. As long as I can keep myself from breaking the transmission and engine, it wheels/crawls well.


Some general pics...









I have a bunch more pictures so just let me know what you would want to see.

Really sweet 40 and exceptionally well built. Not pertinent the sale, but do you have any pics of the rear bumper and the double triangulated rear suspension? What did you build the links out of?

Great rig, not sure how I missed your build.

Looking at your pictures makes me miss my 40, I have one with a very close build sheet just rotting away in storage

Good luck with the sale!

Welp my loss is your gain. Since the replacement engine is still not running the price has been dropped to $11k. At that price you're basically getting even more stuff for free. Quality parts, rust free body and good people helped me with it along the way.

Link to photobucket album Cruiser - For Sale Note: Powertank mount and fire extinguisher mount (on cage dash bar) are not included.

I would be willing to help with delivery (me towing) depending on location/distance. Should I get it running before it sells, the price goes back up. As always if you have any questions please speak up.

Oh and the engine does run. The shop I bought it from adjusted the rockers such that there were valves always open, so when it's cranked whatever air was drawn into the cylinder was immediately blown right back out. Once that was fixed each cylinder tested to 150+ psi. It now purs like a 39yo kitten.

The new owner is a young kid, still an undergrad, but has been around Cruisers all his life. Used to get dropped off at grade school in a powder blue 40. He's been super excited each time he's come over my house, and had him over this past Saturday to help put the drivetrain back together and ask a bunch of questions. It should be in good hands.

Ahh the all important question of what's next... I tossed it around for a while. Ever since Goatbuilt came out I've wanted to build a one with Cruiser sheet metal. Unfortunately I know how long it took to build this 40, and new a buggy would take at least that long because of cash flow. Then there was the Grunt chassis from Bent Fabrications, dump a mini truck drivetrain in there and have some fun. But again I want to be wheeling sooner than later. So I'm keeping it simple and getting a semi-built '85 4Runner out of Texas that will get some money dumped into it.

I'm also hoping to be packing up the misses and moving to AZ in the next few years. We went to Phoenix in February and loved it. And when/if we move I'd rather have something that's easily tossed on a trailer versus packing up piles of parts and a chassis in a hopeful rolling form.
