I saw this nice FJ45LV last weekend while driving through Steamboat Springs and wanted to share. Is anyone familiar with this truck?

It is left hand drive ,we did a 4 speed , all disc breaks it turned out to be a really nice driver I don't think the guy who bought it really realized what he had .The rumor is it's still here in town but I have not seen it . I'm going to build another one for me a 1966 if anyone out there knows where there are any parts please let me know thanks Dale in Steamboat.

Oops I wasn't looking at the steering wheel just looking at the windshield wipers. They're backwards for a LHD

Off topic, but did they ever make those with amby doors on the rear? That tailgate makes the bed almost useless for anything other than loading 2x4's. I've often thought about how cool it would be to take an 80 chassis, 100 drivetrain, and recreate an aluminum 45LV body to make the ultimate "expo" truck. Yeah, kind of like Millens, but w/o widening it and leaving IFS. It would probably cost six figures just to laser scan one of treeroot's 45's and have the body made.....so crack dream for sure.
