Just got an FJ40

I picked up an FJ40 today.

and before i get a TL;DR here's some pics.

[Don't mind the iPhone pics]

1972 Toyota Land Cruiser (FJ40)


There's a lot of krylon rattle can paint... Not worried about it though, no major holes or nothing in the body or frame, so even if he tried to cover anything up I plan on doing a frame off here soon to do it right. He said they used to have the diamond plating on the rear and he ripped it off to find a bunch of holes and he patched those up.


Original 3 speed transmission


Original F engine. After market carb set up; 32/36 webber.


I finally found one local to jump on for a decent price. Going to hopefully make a good project.

Nice truck! Factory a/c and everything. The way the oil filter mounts in there is crazy. Clean looking engine

Yeah, i plan on cleaning it up a bit. I'm really glad i found this one here in hawaii, they go for quite a bit here so i was originally looking at getting on in CA for a lot cheaper and getting it shipped here. However this one came up on craigs list and i jumped on it. The seller wanted 6500 for it (it also has really clean original doors and the original top which is a little rusty) i offered 5500 for it because i expected the truck to be pretty rusty being here in hawaii. Obviously it's covered in krylon (all the black) but there are no major holes from rust or anything. After hearing the engine I he talked me up to 5900, worth it to me, there is no ticking and it sounds really clean.
