Description

Here we have a 77 FJ40 she has been a great truck, front rear heaters, 4 speed trans, original 2f 6 cyl,winch and hard top & doors.
Tough as nails ive never had such a tough truck. but i have 2 FJ's now and the wife is pissed. We have a new born and there is no place for him or his car seat So, the FJ must go or were all going.
Now let me set the stage. I have always wanted an FJ40 but the price tags have always been stupid high. I also wanted an FJ i could use not wipe with a diaper and put it in a car show on Sundays.
5 years ago i drove to Durango CO and bought this FJ. It had a snow plow mounted on the front!!! Get the picture?
I brought it back and have been having a blast with it ever since.. To say it had rust was, an understatement. You could always tell where you parked by the little pile it would leave behind. A year ago it hit a breaking point when the boxes under the seat fell out.. I found a donner FJ and cut the firewall back out of it. This FJ is a high breed foot well forward 1977 foot well back 1973. I have always had a hatred for ambulance door and this was my chance to get rid of them. Its the best of both worlds, split rear door , and all the goodies of a late model, disc brakes etc. those of you who know FJ know that the frame has weak points where it had sections riveted in. the rivets were left in place but all x members have been welded in place along with the x supports. " see pics".
The rear bumper is a 4x4 box tube set up using the stock spare tire holder just mounted to an upright. this give me the ability to have a swing out spare and a swing out NATO can not attached to the body.
Body:
firewall forward 1977
floorboard back 1972
both front fenders have been replaced with aftermarket ones.
all solid except the windshield frame " at one time i think something was living in it and did inside damage." i have never been able to find a replacement and is by far the worst section of the FJ.
there is some pitting in the lower kick panels and should be cut out and a new set welded in but they are solid for the most part.
Tub is solid and to mount the rear fenders was painful to drill holes in virgin metal.
pitting in the lower lips of the 1/4 rear gates and in the lower lips of the hard doors.
Rear floor is good but not perfect it has a few pin holes here and there but nothing major. "see pic"

Interior : Recaro seats front on a very beefed up bolt in mount
rear are flip up in good shape with new Toyota seat belts.
Under the seats is a new rubber coated fuel tank for safety reasons.
Stock size but fuel in a truck seems like a bad idea so i took every precaution i could.
There are duel heaters the rear i have just set in place for the pictures. I live in TEXAS its in the 70"s right now and its the middle of February.. I dont need duel heaters, maybe you do both work very well.
Most of the seals are original on the body and will need to be replaced.
There is No power steering or AC it did not come that way and i have not changed it.
Lighting, has been upgraded to led on rear and sealed beams up front with replaceable bulbs. i got tired of loosing taillight covers and not seeing at night.
A second fuse panel has been installed to handle a lot of the primary systems and there is a kill switch to knock out the hei as well.
now for the bad:
Pin holes in bed floor
lower edges of doors
lower edges of rear 1/4 doors
no headliner " i got real tired of it raining fiberglass in there"
kick panels are rough
leading edge of hood has a few pin holes but is solid.
windshield wipers just stopped working the other day , i have not looked in to why yet
windshield frame is rusty inside.
right now , the wipers dont work. may have blown the glass fuse no clue.
This is a fantastically fun FJ40. I love the truck if i was not being forced in to this sell i would not be selling. That being said this is a toy not a restored FJ40. With all the mods done i dont think its even a candidate for a full on restoration. If you want a restored FJ40 they are out there and not cheep so good luck to you.
If you are looking an FJ40 to go out and have fun and use an FJ40 for what they were designed forto have a great time wheel in and out of damn near anything. this may be what you have been looking for. I know i was now its someone else's turn .
This FJ is no longer tagged or street legal at the moment. It could be.. i just choose to ride in ac to and from an event so, she rides on a trailer.
I have to the best of my knoledge given a summary of the honest condition of this truck. Ask me any questions you may want or if you want a pic of something in particular dont hesitate to ask.
