    Default 74 FJ55

    Well I'm headed to pick-up our new project, a 74 FJ55 apparently stored for the last 20yrs, looking at it I believe the guy.




    I'm not the most diligent poster but may actually get with it and start a photo account etc. to follow progress on this one.

    nope, fellow I bought it off has only had it a year - he got it out of a warehouse/estate sale. He had purchased tires, brake master, lines and 8 wheel cyl ,various filters and the clutch master & slave.

    It is in really good shape, it obviously has some rust but waaaay better shape than ours was when dad sold it in early 80's. Completely unmolested - heck the rear window even works from dash and key switch!
