Just picked up a new project. I really don't need another crazy rare cruiser project. I have the never ending FJ-50 and the stalled 1FZ-LV. I don't need another pickup. I have a Tundra dd and a D350 tow rig. But, this one came my way at the right price and in the right place and the pieces fell into place. And as the modern poet Todd Shaw has said Life Is...Too Short Luke can correct me where I'm wrong but I believe the history of this truck is the last owner was a high school son of a metal worker. They did some repairs to the cab and fabricated a replica of the bed. They also painted over the factory green, (it is an OG truck, originally green) with the gray and fancy 80s stripes. LukeZero found it poking out from behind a dumpster after it had sat for many, many years and rescued it. He dragged it home and began a major truggy project on it. His title date is 02. He parked it in the lower level of his really cool 1920s-era car dealer building and began working on it. Recently he traded a mill for a buggy and the 45 was put aside. Then he lost his way and sold everything. I was second in line for the 45. After looking at extensive pictures of what is not bad rust for the midwest, but terrible for TX, buyer #1 sensibly opted out. I'm not so sensible. https://forum.ih8mud.com/vehicles-trailers-sale-wanted/430168-1964-short-bed-fj45-project.html As of a few hours ago I am the proud owner of frame number 16634. A fixed top SWB FJ-45 with some issues. The title says it's a 66, the VIN tag says 65 and the frame number says early 64.
