Currently located in Atlanta, GA as of July 2020, this 1966 FJ40 has been an Arizona car bought new with a 327 V8 swap completed by the dealer when new. This is a one-owner Arizona title car with no accidents or bodywork. I believe the color is Coronado Beige. Patina has been sealed with a layer of clear coat. It has a clutch and wiring issue, that I can fix before sale if it can add enough value.

I don't see many '66 FJ40's on here, in this condition. I'm trying to determine an accurate value of the car, any advice or offers will be considered.

Upgrades:
  • 1968 roll bar
  • New holly 4 barrel carburetor
  • New tires
  • New brakes and double slave cylinders
  • New hoses
  • New alloy radiator
  • New heater core
  • Power steering GMC
  • New interior
  • Full size jump seats
  • Clear coat over original paint
  • New ignition
  • Hei distributor and wires
  • New plugs
  • Mint hubcaps and beauty rings
  • New front bumper
  • New blinker markers
  • Electric radiator fan

Are there any leaks around the top/doors because I do not believe a 66 came with a corrugated hard top. Corrugated tops and non-corrugated tops are shaped differently, Also, I believe that is a 65 or older windshield frame. Would be worth more if you had the original top and windshield frame for a 66 model year.

@SEAWOLF that's interesting as well -- was it a dealer that sold Toyota AND Chevrolet, that would push it closer to probable in my mind..... even more incredible would be a dealer chevy swap at time of original purchase.

Not sure if they sold both, but I believe it was Toyota of Susanville, CA or nearby…I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen the invoice myself. It could have been as simple as “customer states they want this engine installed” and they did it. Not sure really.

Its simply a 65 titled as a 66, very common on these early rigs. Conferr in burbank were doing v8 conversions, fairly common back then. Most purists are not going to want a v8, so that might bring the value down a bit. Incorrect front seats,and hub caps. Otherwise looks like a nice solid early 40. With todays market as crazy as it is, I would think it would bring 20k( fix the clutch and electrical)

I have the same color 1965 fj40, with the same v8 swap, i got mine out of arizona. It has a downey like adaptor that uses the stock motor mounts on the front. I never thought they put a v8 350 from the dealer, but the person i bought it from assured me he got it from the dealer that way.

Based on a few recommendations on the post and a few messages I received, I'm asking 20k for this model.

As noted in this forum, the car is a 1965 model but titled a '66. It's an Arizona-kept car with no rust. The front bezel has been flipped over as well.

Send a message if interested with more questions or an offer. I can take more photos upon request.

Evidently all y'all on this post are too young to remember Con-Ferr Mfg, they had a "Landcruiser only" franchise with TMS back in the 1960's, did 327 swaps into brand new Landcruisers, eventually lost their franchise (messy law suite) due to this.
