1982 FJ40 with 150k miles.

VIN JT3FJ40C6C3358431


This is my FJ40. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My FJ40 is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

Without me, my FJ40 is useless. Without my FJ40, I am useless. I must drive my FJ40 true.

My FJ40 and I know that what counts in life is not the miles we drive, the noise of our engine, nor the smoke we make. We know that it is the journey that counts. We will journey.

-The 40Man Creed.

Greetings all. I purchased my FJ40 in March of 2011. I am the 4th owner, and it has been owned by Walker County, TX residents its whole 42 years. It did spend about a decade on a deer lease in Refugio, TX though. A link to when I first started enjoying the madness: LINK. I don't have a current picture on me, but my goals have changed and now I want to get it street legal (I have a PILE of parts). I attached an older picture just because :cool: Here is some info:
1978 FJ40
Production date: 10/77
VIN: FJ40261097
Engine: 2F No SN (Warranty replacement block) with 4/80 build date.
Color: 621 Rustic Green

1963 FJ40L, curious why the tag is stamped 1964 and CA title says 1963. The VIN is apparently for a 1963...
VIN 19854
Engine #F350019, this is from 1968.
Original color was Spring Green

I guess my 40 needs to be added to the list Vin #1FJ40-12837. Data plate & pink say 1962, Frame number suggest 1961? you guys would know better than me. F has been replaced with a 2F #067545 and 4speed. I need to start a build thread, but I did set up a instagram "ole_rusty_sides" (kids these day and their social media)

So true in these words!
It reminds me that it's the journey that matters. This ancient wisdom is well depicted in the poem of Constantine Cavafy Ithaca (1911), inspired itself from Homer's epic work Odyssey. Its message is that "the long journey home to Ithaca, is the supreme aim that every man tries to fulfil all his life long...However, in the end, it is not the goal but the journey that matters, because this journey makes us wise and gives people the richest good: experience, knowledge, and maturity". Its touching lyric words have been translated from Greek into English by Professor Emeritus at Princeton Edmund Keeley:


PS. Congrats mate, beautiful rigs!

the journey is the destination.

Not sure how I missed the @40Man creed... well said!
I think I had just watched Full Metal Jacket before writing this. A fun nuance to the rifleman's creed.

I have always enjoyed the journey. And I'll continue to do so until I reach my final destination.

I think guys that it's about time to register here!

This is my BJ42 (9/1984, last of the breed), German market model (3B N/A diesel, factory H55F 5 spd, front discs, NO P/S) and frame-off restored at a Toyota dealership in Germany.
Instead of the 464 40-Series beige I opted for the 4E9 beige, actually a 60- and 70-Series colour (but period correct).
The steelies are OEM 16' split rims and the skinnies (2nd and 3rd pics) 7.50R16 Avon Rangemaster, OEM tyres for the LR Defender.
OME 2.5' inch suspension kit (thank you HawkDriver for your suggestions!)

Pics in Germany (at the departure/goodbye party) and in Greece (cruising and meeting friends)...
