1969 Toyota Land Cruiser Additional Info:

Frame up resto-mod. I finished it 2 years ago. Everything has been rebuilt or replaced and upgraded. The list is long so if you're serious, I'll send you a build sheet. Dolores has been featured in shows and magazine including Jay Leno's Garage. There are ~$50k in parts and 1700+ labor hours in this rig. I'm selling because it's time for the next project. I built her for use, so there are approximately 10,000 miles (mostly on road) on her since I finished the build. She turns heads everywhere she goes because of how she looks and sounds. She rides very smooth at freeway speeds and tracks straight. Please let me know if you have anymore questions. (I will take the time to orient the buyer to everything she has so that I know she'll be in good hands.)
I took the list below from the build album on facebook. You can view pictures of Dolores' compete build there as well... You might have to copy and paste this link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2794252090948.2146337.1097802468&type=1&l=2f48984923
