Ok so I have ended up with a 1970 FJ55 that was originally at the Safari Park in Escondido. She has some character and might be able to help someone out with something they are looking for.

I will be up front I am not much of a wrecker or shipper so would prefer local pickup but if you want something shipped and post pictures of you truck so I know it is going to a good home I can probably motivate myself to make the effort.

Also I am not an FJ55 Guy, I have had a grand total of two of them in my shop in my entire life so happy to post pictures but I have no idea what is factory and what is not.

As far as price goes make me a fair offer and we will do a fair deal, not looking to get rich I paid bugger all for it just didn't want to see it dumped when I know they are hard to get.

Tailgate handle still intact? If so, let's make a deal.

It looks to be but I am far from a 55 Guy so I will get some better pictures of it and make sure it isn't foobar. Is there anything in particular you would like to see / test ?

Not really. If it is broken, you will know it the first time you use it. We can continue the conversation privately. Just shoot me a PM when you get a chance to test it out.

So they usually have locks on them ? This one just has a small handle looking thing.

Whats it worth and I am guessing you will want it shipped ??

Not sure which 55s had a locking vs. non locking doors, but I have a locking door and it's a pain since it uses a separate key

$30 shipped?

As opposed to Gas money how about 2 stick of 1 1/4 DOM 0.120 wall :) I need to make some tie rods, happy to take 4130 if you have it lol

Please contact @landcruisnman for any further Pig Parts ... unlike me he probably knows what most of them are
