    FJ60 to 140 Conversion question

    I have an opportunity to consider a 84 FJ60 and swap guts with FJ80. IMO nothing beats the classic look of an FJ60/62 in the land of LC. It is the iconic look for this legendary wagon,. Are there any benefits if I start with FJ60 vs FJ62 body if I want to go the full 140/142 conversion?
