1971 FJ40 Cummins Diesel Powered Stage 3 Restoration, back from the dead!

This 1971 FJ40 was degraded almost to the state of being a “parts cruiser”, It was completely rusted out and had been modified several times by previous owners, the result of which was, well, not good. Luckily, the owner loved it dearly, and that, along with lots blood, sweat, and tears by our technicians resulted in this absolute beauty of an FJ40. It’s a little different than our typical FJ40 restorations but the result is a gorgeous, uber-drivable custom FJ40. It just what the owner wanted…and we love it too!
