I have been looking to purchase an FJ 40 79-83 with a good 2F, 6cyl engine, 4 speed. While en route to look at what I was told was a cherry '77 (I know out of my stated range but who could resist looking over a great one) I came across a '80 BJ 40, with a 4cyl, B diesel engine. The speedometer is busted and the odometer stopped turning God only knows when at 192,2xx, no rust. It runs ok but while drivable it would be completely a project vehicle not ready for reliable driving for a number of months. I have never owned a diesel and as a total newbie to the forum and restoration world I have no idea regarding the rep or history of the BJ 40s. I would like the opinions of those assembled here regarding which you would choose and why. As an assist, I have a dual purpose for this vehicle, as a daily driver and camping and exploration of light to moderately tough trails. As a daily driver, I planned to keep the Toyota engine and make the necessary mods so that it could comfortably cruise on the highway at 75-80mph without fear of coming apart at the seams. I was able to get the motor number and chassis number for the BJ to the extent that that info impacts on your view. Thanks in advance and I look forward to reading your responses.
