Default Picked up a '79 FJ40...

Found a clean and fairly original '79 FJ40. Has original paint (top not original obviously); very little rust. Rear quarters had minor rust and it was cut out and new steel welded in. I am going to see if I can turn this little rig into a nice driver/camper. It is a pretty big project that I don't have a lot of time for right now, but I couldn't pass up a nice late model 40. I am a sucker for the square besels.

I've got boxes full of the original parts; they all seem to be in good shape. There are a few odds and ends that I need that I posted in the classifieds.

Hey Randy--yeah, it had an idling gremlin that I finally gave up on and so I let the truck go last year.
