but JTO has billit hood swans
What are you looking for ... the chrome strip? FJ40s never had a hood ornament, it was the FJ25s that came with the T-bird. PM Land Cruiser Junky here if that's what you were looking for ... don't think he'll make you one for a 40 though (he makes them out of brass and has them chromed).1973Guppie said:Hey,
looking at a 64 FJ40, guy doesn't have hood ornament, are these available anywhere or are they unobtanium?

If you pick up a billet one, post up some detailed pics.
Having carefully examined an original hood spear and then photos of the original, I'd have to say they are a decent option. If I was to buy one I'd hand modify it and then polish it. The original was imperfect in many ways... they were quickly hand made for a utility vehicle.
Here's the one I made using the JTO one for inspiration...
