After owning a 100 series for 18 months and learning more and more about the pedigree and rich history of the 40 Series, my search was over and I pulled the trigger on my new 1978 FJ40. She was picked up today and heading my way. I will be searching and relying on this great forumn, just like I have for my 100. Here is just two pics without the full roof rack. 100+40=FUN.

By the looks of it you only have one modification to make on her and it is the cheapest one you can do..

I will volunteer to be the fine collector...$10 should do it. I will send you my paypal account so you can promptly make payment.....enjoy the insanity and if you are married hope your wife is prepared for strange packages on the door step and car parts on your kitchen counter.

It looks like the hood is from an earlier year maybe. The bumpers are for sure, and it looks like the hooks are going the wrong way?

Love the color here too; the square tube bumper not so much.

Hood appears to be from a 72 thru 74 model. The hooks are correct. The earlier hooks locked forward when not being used. They unlatched and twisted around to hold the windshield down. Not sure if it lines up correctly with the offset hinges on the later windshield but should be close.

Great looking looking cruiser either way.

:cheers:

the emblems on the apron look to be early 70's emblems.....? not the fatty disco lettering found on the late 70's???
Nice rig though...
X2 on the tube steel bumber.......(no likey!)

Thanks for the welcome guys, and the warnings and opinions- love it. I guess it is time I told my wife - before the new "woman" in my life appears. (seriously, have not told her yet, waiting for the right moment and think it may need to involve large doses of red wine).

Anyway, look forward to getting it a little better. Not going for the 100% stock look, but I need real seats right away.

The edging is Raptor lining. It is also on the deck all inside and in all the wheel wells. The video is on YouTube. Just search for "yellow fj40" and you will see the sellers video.

Your so screwed....the fact that you didn't tell her means you were afraid to even make mention of it because you knew she would say.....absolutly not......I hope you are joking....LOL:bang:

Can you video tape it when you tell her...and post the link on you tube...I will bye the :popcorn: Good luck and I hope she likes to smell like a 70's tail pipe. I bet the money you spent on it was supposed to go to new granite counter tops for the kitchen...Oops.
