Thought I'd share this for fun. Thoroughly unrealistic price (even dropped to $12.5k) for so many mods and condition, but a looker. Save it from being a "mud runner"!
For when the ad goes...
Not mine. Interesting, mostly original and cheap. They're asking $2,300 now.
Pics for when the ad is gone:
"Stewardship" first appeared in the English language about a thousand years ago.
www.etymonline.com says that steward was from the old English "stiward, stigweard "house guardian, housekeeper," from stig "hall, pen for cattle, part of a house" (see sty (n.1)) + weard "guard" (from...
I already have two of Mark's fine early reproduction brackets on one rig, but hope to find one OEM bracket for Miss Kitty, to complete her classic look. Condition isn't too critical, I'll repair it as necessary.
It looks like the one pictured. They aren't any wider than the frame, as opposed to...
Not mine. Looks like fun. You could do it. You know you wanna.
For when the ad goes away:
"Stripped body and frame. Great project. PO was going to build into wheeler with 350. Auto tranny and buildable 350 included. No seats, doors do not go with, basically a tub sitting on frame."
Pre-dates my merely early Jan. '64 build.
It's the type that takes a metal cover, which I don't have. Very nice condition. All the screws move and all the washers and lock washers are there. Price drop, $45 shipping included in US.
Figuired this might be the place to ask.
Don't ask how said gas got into said brown water container.
It was only in there momentarily.
I've been washing and rinsing for a few weeks now. Can still smell it. Can it be made clean again?
I didn't really know what a rust free 46 year old body could be until seeing one in
Idaho. Later I spotted this rig offered locally on CL, a spring green FJ40 with Arizona roots and original paint. The seller pulled a disappearing act and I'd nearly lost hope, but now she sits in my garage...

I realize I've posted a few of these. Sorry the Vida OR one was unresponsive. This one I went and saw while traveling. Owner David is a heck of a nice, straight up kind of guy and he's flexible on the price. It has body rust but is stock and complete. He may have...
I need the '63-'65 version of the oval pad, TEQ symbol, 250 mm adjustable wrench. It should say "Made in Japan" on the reverse. As shown from two of @wscbill 's photos.
For trade I have the earlier, pre '63 wrench (oval pad, TEQ symbol, _no_ country of origin). The dark one pictured.
Update: Always wanted a spring green FJ40.
Didn't know I ALREADY HAD A BEAUTY RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE!
Tried some citrus paint remover on the outside, and the dark green and a gray primer comes off like it's water soluble. The factory green looks _good_ underneath. Protected over time by cheap...
