Alright....this is a feeler post. I think this is a good place to put it as well since everyone viewing has some 45 series interest. I recently built this workshop. It’s pretty nice. And pretty big. But only so big. And it seems as though I cannot possibly fit all of my Land Cruisers into this workshop. I have spoken to counselors and have come to grips with that reality. No I am not selling the Tan 64 that is the subject of this thread.

I am, however, thinking about offloading the 63. I do not really want to start a for sale ad yet because there are several different ways this could go. As is. With an engine/transmission. With some axles and a different engine/trans. You get the point. I’m not looking to make any money and will likely lose money. The truck is generally solid. There are some rust issues here and there, more or less in the bed area. The rear axle came out while being towed by a prior owner and the right rear bed has some minor damage. It doesn’t have an engine or transmission (but there was a Chevy v8 in the bed of it). I have some other options for engines/trans that can be discussed. If you want to chat shoot me a PM and we can figure this out. Clear Florida title.

Here are some photos.

I was just thinking the other day that I would like a 45. Shoot me a pm if you have a price in mind.

Well, my time in Memphis has come to an end. Back to NY I go.

Thanks to my good friend Cam for letting me invade his work space, use his tools, and hammer away at the busy work of engine building.

Thanks to John for giving me the go ahead to get work rolling.

Hope to come back in the near future when Rotunda arrives and things get very interesting.

Not sure if there will be any more updates for a few weeks while @FJ60Cam is getting things lined up in Memphis. In the meantime, I am happy to announce that Rotunda’s home is finally finished. I still have another week or so for the epoxy floor to cure but otherwise we are finished.

Beautiful. Being a builder myself, I like to see this kind of stuff. What is the height at the peak to the floor?
