We stripped off the old finish, perfected the body panels, & refinished this collector truck to better than new!
This 40 year old Toyota was restored many years ago and the owner wanted it to be perfect. We made sure to deliver a show stopping vehicle that can be enjoyed for many years to come.
- Most J40 series vehicles could have their roof and doors removed, and with a folding windscreen this allowed for complete open-air experience.
- The J40 Series also featured folding jump seats, attached to the roll bar behind the passenger and drivers seats. These folding seats not only made carrying another 2 passengers possible, but also allowed for maximum cargo space, as opposed to the folding rear seat in the Jeep CJ series.
- Original factory winches were driven directly from the transfer case (known as P.T.O. or power take off) powered by the engine. Later models had an optional electric winch.
- Today the J40 Series is prized for its compatibility with General Motors products. Not only does the J40 accept the same 6 lug wheel as GM, but the transmission is also compatible with the Chevrolet small block engines, including the 307, 327 and 350 cubic inch models. This allows for engine changes and upgrades, a viable option as surplus engines and engine components for the original J40s are becoming scarce.
