Just finished reading this thread! Loved it. Just bought my 55 on 11/24, two days after your last post.
Sold my 100 series to my 17 year old and upgraded my daily driver to the 1973 FJ55. Looking at possible swaps, and this one is my favorite I’ve seen thus far.

this set up is really really really fun to drive
Sorry about the passing of your father in law. I'm sure getting outside helps a little. Cruiser looks great. Looks like it's going to need some serious quarter panel protection, that is a clean 55 body.
it’s on the list!
I just delivered my ‘69 to 2,080 miles to Montana. Between that and this Pig, I’ve put 5-6,000 miles on pigs in 3ish months. Have to take a little break and ride in something that the doors close all the way and you can still talk at 80mph
