I know of a person trying to sell his 1970 FJ40. He is the original owner 67K miles. He replaced the engine to a 75 2F bacause of valve problems on the original F145. Pretty sure the original motor is still around. Original paint and seats. Ramsey PTO has been added as well as a aux gas tank. This cruiser has been in AZ since new. I may be around the 40 this weekend and can take more picture.

Wow! Thats pretty.
Is that extra filler for the factory aux tank? or is it aftermarket?

No OEM aux. gas tank for the FJ40s that I know of this one is after market. The filler neck is a lot nicer than the one in my 61/68/73 cruisers. The main use of the cruiser was to drive up to Northern Arizona to go hunting over the years. The owner in now to old to go go hunting. He is now trying to sell off his toys. I will also being getting some of his cruiser parts to sell for him. He is a WWII vet who flew in bombers and just trying to help him out.

You can see the date stamp from when I took these pictures. That the last time I seen it. I did start it at that time. It is registered and insured to be on the road. Before I backed out the license plate I noticed the tags were still current. I probably could test drive it this weekend. Really don't want to. Would be to temped to buy. All really have way to many 40s. None of my are as original or clean as this one.

Be a shame to pass this one up. Be a bigger shame to do anything other than bring it back to its original showroom condition.

It is kind of a interesting rear bumper made out of heavy angle iron. The hitch was used to pull a 1/4 ton military trailer he use to own. I will check to see if he can find the original reflectors. I believe he has bumperettes and a rear step.

Very nice! I'd think someone out there would bite at 10k, or just under.

Swap out the rear bumper and put the reflectors/bumperettes back on and that would be the most stock I've seen.

BTW what is the black knob on the left of the steering wheel?

I would think it would bring around $10G. I bought my 77 in Tucson when I lived there and AZ cruisers are some of the best I've seen.

Wow, that is nice. I wish I had seen that one before I bought my '69 in AZ. That one is in great shape.
