Hi all,

I wanted a 45 before our FJ40 but couldn’t find one, but finally one showed up and I jumped on it fast. The frame is great but the body was painted so it’s hiding all the imperfections. Here are some pics:

I live 45 minutes from you! Looks solid, let me know if you need anything,been around these for along time!
That’s great to know!
Where do I start. I’ve been looking for one for a long time but I guess I didn’t realize the peculiarities of the early models. For one thing where do you find the part numbers? 🤔 I’ve been using the parts catalog and the Toyota website so far for my ‘77 FJ40 build, but I realized tonight that they go back to 69 only. I’m missing the rear glass and seal, any recommendations?

You can get the rear window weatherstripping from CityracerLLC.com
The site is down right now, but check it out when it opens back up, also has other parts you might need. And he is located near you.

Thanks for the tip, I’ll check them out. I’m also missing other seals so I’d like to find a good source for them all

Thanks. For now I’d like to get it in driving condition, I have my son’s FJ40 that I’m restoring so I’d like to work on this more in the future. I have a 1985 Toyota pickup that I drive around (3 mile radius) and I’d like to replace this cruiser with that. Most of my driving needs are within that range (and no highways) so if it’s running I will drive it and fix things as needed. Full restoration can wait after the Fj40.
