I’d just buy some wool socks, a stocking cap, and some driving gloves!!! Wholy smokes.Wow, this is cool. This is comparable to an old , uncirculated coin. It is quite valuable. There is a restored one on ebay , but, I believe one in the condition you have, is even MORE valuable.
Was installed as an option by dealers in early FJ25 FJ28 FJ40 FJ45. Toyota Land Cruiser CLAMSHELL Front Heater ASSY. The very Early Heater and 55-59 years of age. All the paint job has been done manually.www.ebay.com
Yes those braces are structural supports for the spare tire carrier bracket. On the FJ25, they were mounted on the side of the fender instead of the rear of the vehicle.Love being able to see structural things on these old rigs, but it does lead to questions . It looks like the passenger side rear wheel well has a couple of cross braces at the rear that the driver’s side doesn’t have. Do you know what those are for?
