Default Missing Keys

Say you were a 3 year old that has been using Daddy's 40 as a jungle gym for the past couple of months while he's covered in grease and now he wants his only key back. I told him that he should have gotten the thing running sooner and we could be cruising rather than looking for the key I stashed sometime ago. It is kinda funny watching him tear the garage apart looking in every nook and cranny. Silly Daddy, he keeps looking in the same spots!

At any rate, he appears to be getting upset so I was wondering how to "hotwire" a '64 FJ40? He's got an attention span similar to mine so pictures would be great. BTW, I'll be taking notes and I'll be attending the monthly meetings so lock your doors! I maybe 3 but I'll be driving in no time. You should have seen the light display when Daddy connected the battery! Every knob was turned and lever pulled. This is the greatest jungle gym ever.... Thanks Daddy.

power to the coil (wire from battery to positive side of coil), then jump the starter soleniod to make it turn over.

I think you can just disassemble the steering column and turn the switch that the key turns with a screwdriver. Or you could try another toyota key. My '78 would run with the key from my Camery.

Yah, I think most any flat object that fit in the key hole would start my 40
