I posted this on 'mud a while ago, but I though some of you here would think this interesting. Guy lives in Palmer lake.

So I was chatting with a guy in our business park the other day and we somehow got on the subject of Toyotas.

He mentioned he has an 85 pickup, and 88 4unner with a 95% complete 3.4 liter swap, and an 93 4 runner awaiting a newer 3.0 that he has sitting in the garage.


Then...

He mentions to me that he has a 64 or 65 Toyota Stout that is mounted on an 83 4wd chassis. He goes into great detail about all the years and all the work he put into it. Body was chemically stripped and zinc coated. Bling bling paint. The entire chassis was stripped along with axles etc and painted. The rear tire wasn't centered into the wheel well, so he cut some material in the front and added some in the back to match.

Apparently he hasn't driven it at all since he completed it. He said it was just too nice.

So I just happed to need to go to his place yesterday and damn did I wish I had my camera with me. All I got was a cell phone pic.

It is just amazing. He built the front and rear bumpers, along with a headache rack and bed rails. The amount of work that went into this thing is unreal. He even has SR5 gauges that he made fit in the original gauge pod.

Like I said the bumper is home made. For the square tubing hoop he had to make 50 small pie shaped cuts and weld it up to make the bends he did. He couldn't bend it cause it would just kink it.

So anyway, here is a pic in all it's glory. It's a shame that it's just sitting in his garage. Better than sitting in a field somewhere...

Really sweet. He should at least show it occasionally. Maybe he could bring it to the Rally next summer.

Dang, I have never even seen one of those before.

Is that the original bed or a late model bed? Looks kinda like it doesn't fit.

You'd think with the heavy mods he might at least drive it a bit, it isn't a 100% stock resto.

Man, I believe, cars should be driven, guns should be shot, not stored up never to touch again, but you gotta admit that thing is SWEET!

Sweet, it is just the body line at the front bottom edge of the bed looks a bit outta' place. Cool looking truck.

It has an old wagoneer look to the front of it. But the head lights and turn signals are too:cool:

Very nice. My Granddad had one of those twentyfive years ago.
