Original restoredFJ40. I have tried to keep thisFJ40as original as possible. Never driven in the winter and originally from Arizona. Original engine. I have the original keys, sales brochure, owners manual, owners guide, tool kit, radio, glove box light, floor mats, center console, door safety straps and bars (very rare) etc. It has been a great running truck. It hasn’t disappointed me at all and every summer I get many looks and offers to buy it. To my knowledge, it has never been driven off the road. Since I have owned it I have spent more than $18,000 on restoring theFJ40. It isn’t restored from the ground up, but is a very nice, original and dependableFJ40.I have all of the receipts. Extras included in the sale include new weatherstripping for hardtop/ body panel removals, all stickers for eventual body paint job, extra OEM tool kit for everyday driving, extra misc rubber weather packing and weather stripping, extra OEM safety straps and used original parts etc. Everything included in the pictures plus some. Misc. scratches on the body and hood. Wear on the drivers door arm rest as well as one small rust bubble shown in the pictures at the drivers side rear end of the truck where the body panel meets the frame bracket, otherwise inrust free condition. All nuts and bolts that have been restored and are OEM yellow cad plated with correct stampings. Included is a used SOR carpet set in good condition as well as OEM rubber matts. Also included is a brand new FJ40 fitted cover.
