    I’m sure this is a repost!!

    Need some help from 40 guys….I am going to look at a 69’ FJ40 in a few days. It has been sitting for about 3 years not running, close to stock. No hard top, new looking soft top. No tub rust just a couple little spots on hood louvers.

    Its not advertised. I saw it parked in a driveway so I approached to homeowner. It was night and I did not inspect well. The guy I talked to was not owner and wanted it out of his driveway. The owner was in Navy and at sea. Just got a call and owner is ready to sell. I an going to inspect in a few days. I’ll take some pics.

    Plan in doing a V8.

    What should I look for when I inspect.

    You should probably plan on changing to disk brakes also. Um I have a fiberglass tub but I have alot of rust on the connections between my rear bumper and the frame.

    Really hacked up wiring, and frame rust. Those two things will turn a nice rig into a pile of junk rather quick.
