    Wanted  speedo 3/69 through 9/72

    This is for a 8/71 but I believe something in the 3/69 to 9/72 will work. Screw in cable no indicator lamps on speedo. If the guages don't work, that's OK - just need a functional speedo to fix my broken one. Thanks

    Uncovering the original paint - aka how do you remove a lot of rattle can

    71 FJ40 A work in progress...

    Well it's taken me about a year to take the jump and bring a 40 home, but today was the day. It's been pretty hard to find one that hasn't been too modified, but I think this is as close as I'm going to get. It's an 8/71 that seems to have lived in Northern California for most of it's life...

    Completely stock FJ40 images (1968-1974)

    So I'm looking for a mostly unmodified 40, pre-1975, and struggling to recognizing what has or has not been modified. It's mostly the subtle changes like lights, reflectors, mirrors, that I'd like to understand. Does anyone have any example sites/images of completely stock 40s? For...
