Looking for a driver fj55 that needs a new home. I've built a few cars/trucks over the years but this is on my list, I need a keeper ,kids ,camp,fish,m-This winter there were a few close by near Seattle, and I hesitated ...and now regret not pulling the trigger. There was a green/white 71 with 327 in it I was eyeballing ...but the CL posting vanished. ? Sold? Dunno ?
Beware, they're mostly rust buckets. Be sure to check it out in person before buying. Decent ones are getting fairly expensive. (In other words, not really worth it IMO) There was a a good example FS in Salmon, Idaho last fall for a great price, but ya missed it.
Passed on a running 78 due to extreme rust,the paint was holding it together.
Craigspro,auto tempest , a few cruiser sites anybody else know search spots?
Any local members in Spokane or Cda (Coeur d Alene,id)

I’ve bought several pigs now and also live in Idaho and can tell you that we are blessed with a lot of inventory but most are either non running with decent bodies or running and rusted out. If I had to do it over I would buy a non-runner with the best most complete body and deal with drivetrain. Things like rubber trim can exceed the purchase price of a pig, mine had a broken windshield that ended up costing $500.00 for an OEM replacement and a set of mirrors recently sold on eBay for something like $2700,00. Just some food for thought.
If you end up wanting to buy a body and build I know of a few floating around.
