This FJ40 is a Mississippi truck with an original drivetrain. I purchased it a couple of months ago to make it a shop project to renew and do my patina thing but I am just too busy with other projects and would like for someone else to enjoy spring in this on.

AS IS, this is what you get

1F motor, 3 speed on the floor
Front Disc Brakes (JT Outfittter style that retain the original knuckles) with new lines and master
New Tie Rod Ends
Rebuilt center arm
Trollholl Carb with new electric fuel pump and regulator
New 235/75R-15 Wintermark radials with white spokes
New steel fuel tank
New Clutch master and slave
New Exhaust
New Shocks
New starter

Comes with a bikini top.......NO TOP/DOORS!

As you can see in the photos, the PO did some rust repair. This is NOT in my opinion a restoration truck, this is a good runner that stops good that you can enjoy without turning a bunch of wrenches.

Looks like someone had the hood fly up on them and tried to fix it with bondo a few decades ago.......

It has the original seats front and rear and a home brew roll bar. The drivers seat needs a seat bottom cover but the rest of the seats are good.

Also included is a period correct air cleaner housing and new denso filter that has been powder coated. This is the rare cold weather model that has a selector to open warm air to the manifold

The engine area will look fantastic with the correct air cleaner.

This truck needs:

Seat cover on the drivers bottom
Choke Cable
Wiper Blades
OEM correct tail lights and brackets
OEM Light switch

Obviously it needs some TLC on the body. Most of the rust repair has been done but none of the welds were ground out after. Hopefully the new owner will blend in the paint and keep what's there that's good.

I polished on a fender to see what was there and its not bad

Dammit that is cool.

Sure could be if the right person got it and enjoyed it for what it is.

This is a nice beater truck. Yes the price is not great but I paid too much and collected a bunch of parts. 40 prices are nuts as anyone reading this knows.

It’s not listed anywhere else yet but going wide soon. As of now I’m firm on the price. That is my money plus parts I purchased plus a whopping $900 in profit for my effort to rescue it. 😬

I was getting ready to add that the Phish sticker was easily worth another 200 bucks....


Until I got to the last pic.👎
