Having a squiza at a 40 for sale in a car yard this morning and noticed 3 window wipers on the front , would this be a STD thing , it was a late 80s model with square bezel and padded dash and tacho unless it was put on during rebuild

yes they were on the non-usa market LX model BJ42 along with PS, AC, Tachometer, 5 speed manual, and a folding rear bench seat along with sliding rear windows.

If this thing has all of these its a rare rig but a shame they decked it out with all that chrome and painted the white top yellow. Darn, why do all the best cruisers go to people with money and terrible taste

I think the FJ40 LX also has 3 wipers, but the tacho would indicate a BJ42 LX. These also came standard in Aus with chrome wheels. Looks like a RHD from the pics, and it looks like the apron is missing the LX badge.. I'm curious what they are asking for it? (If you don't take it I'm looking for another one..)

Hi All:

Yes, late production BJ42 LX (1983 & 84 IIRC) sold in Australia came with three windscreen wipers.

I have had the pleasure of restoring to white LX FJ40s last year the first one is 1984 5 speed.



The next one is 1982 4 speed



they are a 6 seater heres what the seats in the back look like



And I have just started a 1982 4 speed Mustard yellow one for this year no pics yet as its all stripped down and should be finished in about 6 months.
