I just looked at old pics of the 69 survivor I recently sold and the bracket was pewter
interesting, the blue one listed sure does look like original paint
I need a mop to clean up the drool from looking at your garage of toys.I can tell you that the rear step was never silver and always black.
As for the spare bracket could have been a mid 69 model year change. Very minor change and doesn't even show with a hub cap. Toyota decided just paint then all pewter.
In my collection of parts I have the new take off rear steps from two 63 FJ40 hard tops and the bumperettes from the same cruisers. Those are painted beige. These from the original owner of my 70 FJ40. Were off his and his father's first FJ40s.

Thanks, it ended up being a bit of an adventure. Tony owned it for 27 years and it lived up at his cabin in Northern Minnesota. Took me about 6 hours to drive up there and it was below zero, single digits most of the day. Just as I arrived my trailer blew a wheel bearing (glad it didn't happen loaded or on the highway!) We pulled the 40 out and went over it, it has its warts and needs to be baselined, doesn't run well, but has potential and its all there. Tony is a good guy and helped me procure trailer bearings and we got it buttoned up in the cold, loaded my new 40 and I trekked back home. 18 hour day with 14 hours of driving. I`m pretty excited to have a 40 again and Tony was happy it was going to an enthusiast. I'll start a build thread at some point in the near future.
Bluemud, don't sweat it. This 40 is a project. Wouldn't have made for a very good first car or daily driver.
