    1974 FJ40 - Just Delivered - A Lot To Do!

    I’d say they’re Land Cruiser friendly. Used to work across the street when I was in college.

    Intro to an Aug ‘73 Original Owner FJ40

    Nope, just ugly vinyl on-top of ripped factory black/grey covers.

    Intro to an Aug ‘73 Original Owner FJ40

    Sorry, separate Fan Switches (Front and Rear) only on 73 models. Those original white seat covers are trashed, have the Cruiser Corps corral seats now. :cool:

    Intro to an Aug ‘73 Original Owner FJ40

    Congrats! Awesome story to go with it. Lot's of 73's popping up on the board recently. You'll find there's a bunch of 1 year only equipment (back-up lamp, front and rear heater switches, headlight switch) plus it started the transition to bucket seats, early 73's didn't have the roll-bar, not...

    Project Old Blue - 1973

    Guess I haven’t posted in awhile. Not much going on, other than picking up a nice floor mat from @Irish11. Little offset from the 4spd cutout, but very cool. Need to get back to working Old Blue, get the brakes sorted this winter, hopefully...

    ‘75 gas tank in a 1/‘73?

    On my 10/72, I used the CCOT replacement metal tank. Blocked off the red arrow (return) hooked up supply to blue arrow. My gas tank straps were a little short, had to use 1” rubber bumpers to strap to the floor ( didn’t have original bolts).

    Wanted 3-speed shift boot retainer ring for a 1973 FJ40

    Unless you have the later 4 SPD tunnel, you’ll need to probably use some rivnuts to secure it.

    Wanted 3-speed shift boot retainer ring for a 1973 FJ40

    There is no retainer ring. The boot slips around the tunnel very poorly.

    FJ40 advice needed

    I’m in Spokane with 2 other 40’s within 1/4 mile of me. While there is a healthy number of 40’s in the area, the “club” never seems to get organized. I’d be happy to help point you in the right direction if you come up this way.

    Driver seat mount help

    Loosen the side seat rails from the bottom cushion, mine were pinched inward not allowing lineup with the mounts. Disregard: you’re trying to flip it.

    Towing an FJ40 on a U-haul trailer.

    An FJ40 will fit just fine. I purchased these straps on Amazon. Running 33’s, and just used the U-haul ratchets. Yea it’s an extra $55, but I have them for next time I need to transport. US Cargo Control Extra Large Tow Dolly Basket Strap - Car Dolly Strap with Flat Hook End Fittings - for...

    Considering buying a '69 FJ40

    I'd explore the site, look at what some guys are doing with Patina builds vs. full refresh. A legit soft top and new bows will cost in the area of $3.5k. Replacing warn out suspension, brakes could be 2k. Who knows about the motor, tires, cooling system, wiring, clutch? When it was last road...

    Considering buying a '69 FJ40

    Yea. The factory soft top door hinges allow the doors to be easily removed by sliding out of the hinge attached to the body vise unbolting or driving the pin out. The Vader light is just to the right of the glovebox. It’s a hooded map light on soft top models only. I think we need more pics to...

    Considering buying a '69 FJ40

    I’d say 6-8k range. If it’s California surface rust. I spy FST door hinges and a smidge of Vader light. So should be a soft top with added hard top. I’d ask if there’s parts stored away. You’ll get prices all over the board, it’s all about what you’re comfortable paying and knowing what you’re...
