    James Asti called me to say he's "thinning his herd," and I told him I'd post a notice in the FJ25 forum on MUD for him.

    He wants to sell his two FJ25s: One is what he calls a 1958 soft-top model "barn fire" truck (butt ugly, but with usable mechanical parts). The other is a stocker and restorable 1960 soft-top model that's apparently in pretty good shape. (He didn't have any pics to send when I talked to him a couple of days ago.)

    Anyway, he wants to sell both trucks together as a package and I believe he said he was asking $5k for the two. And, he'd prefer to sell them to an FJ25 enthusiast.

    You can reach him at James@4x4Connection.com (he's in the Winchester, VA area). Or PM me for his phone #.

    Pimp, good luck on a 25 that very few believe even exists. But if anybody could obtain it, you could. :D

    you know, it looks like the frame is painted black, which means its been restored. 25's had body colored frames... :rolleyes:

    Once again, that's not TPI's FJ25, it's the one that's on display at the Toyota dealership in San Jose, Costa Rica. It does exist, it just has nothing to do with TPI, never did.

    Henry's right, they haven't even straightened up the license bracket. Same tailgate Archie, just can't see it good in the black and whites from that angle.

    That's what I meant as far as it belonging to Hollingsworth. Lot of nerve making a claim like that. :rolleyes:

    So mike are you posting pictures of the one of the cruiser for sale or is this one on it's way to your house. Another upside down Tbird. I going to switch my Tbird next time I go to the cabin. Change it every month so I'll have it right half the time. :rolleyes:

    Those are stock 16" FJ25 wheels, but the front hub caps are FJ40's since 25's never had selectable hubs and should have solid front hub caps.
