    So I'm Cruising ebay and find a 40th in antique sage. Seller claims this was the only color available. I shoot off an email correcting him..dark green was available. This is his reply:

    "Are you sure the green ones aren't gray market? If
    not I guess the Toyota guy was wrong"

    Yeah, the "Toyota Guy" is often wrong. :D ;)

    Sage and that yucky green though I've seen several other colors with the external 40th decals.

    ... did I say "yucky"???

    I meant that georgous 6M1, emerald green. Reminds me of my lovely wife's beaaaaaaaautiful eyes. There's a good reason the majority of 80 series are painted emerald green and that's because it perfectly accentuates lines of the world's most beautiful truck. All the prototypes were emerald green. Most of the diff lock vehicles are emerald green. What a wonderful and appropriate paint choice for a real man's off-road vehicle.

    I love emerald green. :)

    I'm trying to decide which color I like better; the Brown of your nose or the Green of the cruiser. :eek:

    Green still bites and is the second worse color, only behind bird white. That said, the proper color of the 40th's is Sage. Any trucks that are white, champain etc are obviously only 40th wannabees.

    Hey now - why you gotta rip on white, they've got the "thickest" paint (didn't you read the post ;)). Anyway - pulled up next to a green 40th at a light yesterday, I think it's the first one I've ever liked.

    alaskacruiser,
    Unless they were in bright sunshine you could easily confuse an emerald green truck for black. The very, very reliable sources insist that sage and green were the only 2 factory colors for the 40th edition. The CE came in all colors and it's always possible that someone repainted to black.

    NO GENUINE black 40th's, period.


    Black collector's, possible.

    >> In a perfect world... the proper color of the 40th's is Sage... with lockers...

    Ah, yes...

    In fact, I've never even seen a green one - pictures, yes - but not in person... though I've heard some rumors about them from certain members on this list :D
