Selling my 1972 FJ40 FST in HOUSTON Texas, truck has spent weeks over the summers in CO, and its fantastic Mtn trails. Proven trail rig, has crossed 13,000 ft passes.

Great thing about the fuel injection, fires up at 50 or 12,000 ft, no problems. Drive it around town, or on the trail.

Price $22,500.00 - No trades

1972 FST with Vader light!

72000 miles but that hasn’t turned since I bought about 5 years ago.

Also has a CA engine swap tag (was told that means something)

Since I have owned

Rebuilt SBC 350 with FITech fuel injection (rebuild in last 12 months)
Powder coated headers
TH350 and Transfer Case rebuilt by Valley Hybrids (includes the cone saver and topside reinforcing plate) also last 12 months
62 front knuckles (yes, disk brakes)
WARN 8000 winch
Saginaw PS
New Bezel
OME lift with shocks
BFG MT with lots of tread
RobbMC fuel pump
Trollhole black soft top and new bows
Bestop soft doors ( with truck when purchased)
4Plus rear tire carrier
New fuel tank installed
ARB compressor
ARB rear diff locker
CB
Gauges work, except AMP
Alum rad
Mechanical GM corvette fan
New emblems
Seatbelts
Corbeau seats (suspension)

High lift is staying with me along with mount.

Looks like there are two coats of paint over original. Last one is a 2013 FJ color I believe. Yes some chips, and paint peeling also below the fuel cap

Why am I selling

This is one of three, and it gets driven the least. Have really only been to CO with it last few summers.

Please reach out with questions. I just put 82 miles on It today. Average speed was 40 and top speed was 70.2

What a fantastic 40! I can vouch for the seller. He is meticulous with his trucks and has done everything the “right” way. Incredible attention to detail. The new owner will be pleased. GLWS

Personally I do not think a V8 causes an issue with birfs. I would think that is more the driver (throttle pedal) and tires that are two large being issues. A Vader light is the “Hood” like dash light that Factory Soft Tops cake with new.

there are no leaks. I will take pictures. Georg just rebuilt my trans and TC. Motor rebuilt also.
