    So I had a 73 FJ40 about 10 years ago and was stupid and sold it. I think I finally found another worth buying and hope to pick it up this week. I'm pretty excited and figured I'd post some pics of my old FJ which will hopefully be followed by pics of my new FJ later this week.

    The 73 had a 350 and was mostly rust free. I sold it in Washington, anyone recognize it? I've often wondered where it ended up.

    I'm not entirely sure, I bought it that way. The column was probably Toyota, it had a Toyota key and steering wheel. The wheel in the pics is one I had lying around from a Renault GTA. The power steering and large stock wheel was almost too much. There was better feel with the smaller wheel.

    You can see part of the power steering system right behind the front bumper if that helps identify it.

    I believe that 40 is here in Lake Tahoe I saw it sitting in a back yard. I will try and go by and get some pics of it He is selling it. The 350 was pulled and replaced with a 2f they guy was going to do a stock restore (toyota parts w mods) and passed away.

    Awesome, I'd love to see pictures of it. If it's the same truck can you pass along the contact info? Maybe I'll get a wild hair and have it shipped up here.:p

    Could be, this thing was frankensteined together. Chevy through to the transfer case, center pumpkin (mini truck? chevy?) rear end, disc brake front, etc. At least I had the bezel on right :flipoff2:
