    just stumbled upon these pics at a Philippines trading site..
    seller claims it to be an original toyota trailer.. looks nice, also nice idea if you have a tub left, some handy skills and in need for a BJ/FJ40's matching trailer.. ;)

    haha yeah just my thought as well, and after looking several times at the pics it looks like they welded a plate in the former tailgate part... probably like i just mentioned, a reused bodypart transformed to a trailer..

    well i hope i inspired at least 1 or 2... :)
  4. I like it. I would like to do that, after I finish my fj project. Seems like I have seen this before??

    as you can see production definatly went into the 1960's...this being the 1205th one made

    from what i can tell production started sometime after the original procurement for the "National Police Reserve Force" maybe 52-54? original order made no mention of trailers

    alil more history:
    as for "weapons carrier"...Toyota was making them all the way back into WWII as the KB and KC trucks...at the time of the order by the NPRF they were using the BX (08/01/1951 2wd) and then BQ (09/1952 4x4 truck) as the weapons carrier the BQ would then become our better known weapons carrier ...the FQ10 and FQ15
