Description for Toyota Land Cruiser 1960

Where to start . . .
I have a "1960" "FJ40" Toyota Landcruiser with a H diesel engine and a 4 speed manual transmission, 2 speed transfer case for sale. It's a badass truck for the right person.
I have put the descriptors in quotation marks for a reason: the title and registration say 1960, but I am pretty confident that is not totally correct; the title and registration also say FJ60, but this has the 1H diesel engine in it. For the LC afficianados, please don't send me corrective emails--I know that the BJ/HJ letters are indicative of the diesel and that the H was never put in the 40 model, only in the HJ45 truck model.
So here's the story . . . the good:
The motor does turn over and run and the truck looks great. The transmission and transfer case seem to be in working order. There is NOTHING electric about this truck. It is a Costa Rican model (thus the odd VIN#) that was used on a Coffee Plantation and there is virtually no rust that I can see. The glow plugs operate from a "Wilson" switch, and the EDIC has been bypassed for a manual diesel shut-off cable. Super simple.I suspect, though I do not have verifiable proof, that it was originally an FJ model and the Costa Rican owners pulled the 2F gas motor and replaced it with the 1H it currently has in it. I do not know the true mileage.It has been painted a great color of orange, though the paint job is not the best. It's exactly what a Cruiser fan is looking for, and it won't take a whole lot more money to get it into a good place. It's not a $30k truck, so I am not asking that for it. As you all probably know, the engine and transmission alone are worth my asking price. By the way, I do have the passenger's side front seat; I had it out when I took the pictures.
Now the bad . . .
I bought this truck from disreputable P-O-S unit out of Jacksonville, FL who shall remain nameless . . for the time being. I was told a) that the truck ran fine and b) that the body was in great shape. Well, that was only partially true. The body is in good shape, but the truck arrived at my door with no fuel in the tank or in the system. For those of you who have worked on these trucks--or any diesel, you know what that means. For those of you who haven't, it means a hassle. The engine does turn over and run--fuel gets from the primary filter through the injection pump and to the injectors--but I cannot keep it running and I have neither the time nor the inclination to work on it. Other expenses crave my attention.
So, I'm putting it up for what I have in it: $11k. You're welcome to make me a reasonable offer with the understanding that I think (as the market attests) that $11k is reasonable.
I currently have the truck in the shop addressing the fuel delivery issue and I am currently [still] waiting for the State of NY to mail me the NY title. If it does not sell "as is" for this price in the allotted time, I will fix the fuel delivery issue and add that to the BIN price. If it's not exceedingly expensive, I will have it fixed and amend the asking price.
You are welcome to email me via eBay with any questions. As is, Where is. I can help load it on a truck, but the buyer will be responsible for making shipping arrangements. It's pre-owned, so there's no warranty and no return stated or implied. Please ask questions before bidding. Thanks and good luck!
