Looks to be the remains of this pig here, owned at one time by a past user by the handle of @DWitcher or something like that.

If I remember correctly- the shell as it is seen was for sale in Bakersfield on Craigslist 2-3 years ago.

The tub didn’t really look that bad from the pics. It would be interesting to hear why this 55 was disassembled and then scrapped.
Probably the owner sought out to restore it and then realized that they were in way over their heads. I've picked up more than one project like that. If you have the patience to deal with someone else's mistakes you can pick them up very inexpensively.

You’re probably right @samc2447 . I think something must have happened to @DWitcher . He was on here in the later 2000’s and then wasn’t seen since around 2011. Maybe he had to sell everything when the economy tanked.(?) He had at least two FJ55. We now know the fate of the yellow SOA rig, but the red and white one has yet to resurface.

This! ^^^
How does it go from a running, Cruising Pig to a shell on a trailer, heading for the scrap yard?
