Congratulations on your purchase, very nice. Enjoy the lack of monotony in this forum....(whisper: flip that bezel before someone calls you out.)

Wonder why the non-stock roll bar? 1975 would have come from the factory with a roll bar (in the USA anyway). Nice looking truck. Above all - HAVE FUN!

P.S. I have your wipers here somewhere......

Looks like a nice find and the right color too! ;)

very nice 40! best color out :D

Not sure is it's always been my favorite color but has certainly grown on me over the years.

As for going broke until the ATM keeps your card you should be good. Me I keeping waiting to open my wallet and find my debit/credit cards gone along with the paypal password changed.:hmm:

Unlike women and booze if you decide to sell you can at least get a little bit of your investment back.:rolleyes: Looks like a nice cruiser hope you enjoy it.:cheers:

The Cruiser may appreciate. You can consume your booze. Women..... a depreciating asset. :flush:

What do you do, climb in from the rear to get in those cruiser??? Cool pic!

At the time neither was being driven. Since I've registered the 70 and moved the 76 further into the corner and covered it. Trying to keep the miles down. It's already has over 4,500 miles on it, about to the engine is about to the end of the life.:rolleyes:

Welcome scowl. Look forward to seeing what you do to your new acquisition. I do not know what is harder. Giving up any spare cash for projects on these trucks or giving up any spare time reading everything on IH8MUD. :cheers:

Thanks all, I did flip the bezel. It wasn't repainted by an fj guy so thanks for the info. So far, I've got the top put back on and put in new seats. the stock seats were in bad shape and didn'tslide back far enough. my new corbeau seats give me lots more leg room, being 6'7" that's a nice feature.
