    Man,
    I tell ya,
    when you least expect it...........start looking down side streets for original 1 owner FJ40's........

    its a April 1978 Cruiser....

    Farmer, had original bill of sale and everything from when he bought it new at stevenson toyota in Co. Springs....

    he traded a 1973 Vega for it....ha ha...

    I have never seen a more clean original cruiser....runs perfect...116K on the clock....no floor/tub/back door rust whatso ever...

    the thing was almost white in color for oxidation...what a little wax will do for this color....looks factory new.

    anyhow, heres a sneak peak, not sure what Im going to do with it yet...

    Cheers....now I need to make up some Olive hats... :idea:
