    1963 FJ40 Factory Soft Top

    Looking at another truck but my wife says ďone in, one out...Ē

    This is a very clean and un-hacked FJ40. Three speed with vacuum operated low range. Old school Warn locking front hubs. It has a stock Toyota inline 6, although not exactly correct for the year. Modifications include an aluminum radiator, Weber carb and power steering. Iíve corrected the wiring by removing disconnected/shorted circuits and splicing in correct color/gage pieces per the original wiring diagram. Iíve also tucked an MSD6 ignition up under the dash and put a Pertronix Ignitor in the distributor. The truck fires up immediately and runs great. Itís good for 65 on the highway, although it gets sort of exciting on I80 in traffic without doors!

    The truck has been in California/Nevada since new, so thereís no rust on the frame or driveline. The body is also solid, although there is some corrosion on the driver rear corner and evidence of some bodywork on the rear sides. It has been repainted at some point over the past 54 years, but the color appears original. I have factory service manuals as well as a matching rear seat that go with the truck. This is a great unbreakable trail vehicle as is, or it could be restored as either a rare original or built into a brutal rig. The first $12,000 takes the truck - not cheap, but clean unmolested FJ40ís just keep going up in value and the factory soft tops are a very rare version. This is on a regular clean NV title by the way, and the truck is available for inspection in Caughlin Ranch.

    Iím working on one now that is remarkably similar and have already dumped way more than that into it after the purchase price and adding things like new tires and power steering and HEI. Very fair price!
