Guess I'm years ahead with my 68. It got the jungle copper mine look back in 1985. Neighbor painted in exchange for some HVAC work I had done for him. Wanted an olive/brown color and this is what I got. Guess I can finally take out of the garage it been hidden from the world in shame.

I always wanted a copper colored car of some sorts, maybe an original mini-cooper. But not that thing 😂.

It'd take some effort/cubic butt loads of dollars to un-fornicated that beauty.

(edit)- I glance through classifieds here, Craigslist, and Hemmings occasionally, even though I'm not looking. The more I look, the more I realize I'm super lucky to have my basketcase, and to have paid what I did.

What, bead locks? For those that need to significantly air down for sand or mud travel they make sense. And I have never seen an attractive bead lock rim. The rest of that rig looks legit.

I guess you should put the 40 in my avatar on your list too. This one looks like a enjoyable trail rig. Thru my decades of wheeling in the Midwest, I have a few issues with it. 1st that tire is too big and heavy for a plate style tire carrier, it probably rattles and the studs will pull thru the sheet metal. 2nd, the tire becomes a hook when in the woods on off camber trails. I don't know how many times I've had to remove the spare because a tree got caught between the tub and tire. I eventually centered my spare. The 3rd, is the receiver hitch screws up the departure angle when dropping off ledges and its a bad recovery point. It will bend the rear crossmember up.

your Avatar 40 looks Classy and FLY mr. @pb4ugo :)





- the example 40 in the classified ebay ad at the top first post is a very POOLY thought out GHETTO FLIPPER Idea gone extremely BAD and that is simply SAD ...........:confused:



- i created this Thread in hopes that it would empower a potential new member / first time 40 series land cruiser owner operator , in what NOT to think is

cool , in fact " RUN like a Antelope Out of Control " away at anything remotely close to somebody's idea or version of Twisted Reality clearly ....






kinda like Putin thinking he can actually win
🤣

I know it is a thunderbird symbol but with the blitzkrieg on the windshield frame, it is dangerously close to a Nazi eagle.


i intentionally did not mention that monkey business , it;s NOT the actual bad bad bad logo , i would never have posted this topic example if it was ....


but it's
CIRCUS CLOWN Artist if u can even call it that , might just be the PO trying to flip this Flap-Jack ?

I once had an FJ40 "show car" painted copper, looked dark red in the shade, bright gold in the sun, and loaded with chrome plating (back when that was the thing). I sold it to a guy for $12,000.00 back when brand new FJ40's cost about $8,000.00 (late 1970's). Rich guy owner sent it to his mansion in the Bahamas, sat out in salt air, owner drilled holes and installed G.I. gas tanks onto the sides of the body. Eventually someone sent me photos of the rig, covered in mud, sitting in front of his mansion- -sad deal.
