Car description

Just completed a Full Nut & Bolt Frame Off Restoration.
This early model FJ40 is a rare, collector's item equipped with parts that are nearly impossible to find.
When this FJ40 was purchased from the Toyota dealership it was one of the few who the customer opted for a hardtop with corrugated side panels. The back end features small swing-out doors with a unique, rear hatch that can be pushed up and folded horizontally — the only foldable version available on these models. The original windshield ventilation cover was in perfect working condition (which is rare) and has been restored. Inside, you'll find plenty of exposed metal (typical of early model Land Cruisers) and seats trimmed in Black vinyl - just like the original. It even has the original Very Rare Red Seat Belts. Every switch, gauge, and knob has been painstakingly restored or replaced with a new, original version of itself.
It is Titled as a 1966 (sold date), but is a 1965 (VIN build date.)
The PO allowed the engine to freeze and crack. He replaced it with a fully rebuilt 1973 engine and drove it less than 2000 miles. When I found this FJ40, it had been sitting in an Assisted Living Facility in Montrose, CO. I picked it up and brought it back to Oklahoma to perform the restoration.
I have hundred's of pictures that shows the step by step restoration process from beginning to end.
Last year this exact model with it's rare features sold for $90,000.00.
Due to the engine not being original to this FJ40, I am asking $55,000.00
