July 8, 2011- VIDEO UPDATES- The V8 and automatic transmission have been mocked up in the frame of this restoration. March 26, 2010- VIDEO UPDATES- We are starting on the body work with this restoration project. We will be keeping costs down by using the original body tub which is in remarkable good to decent condition. The steel tub did have some rust repair, but over all the condition is fairly good. Watch as many of the original parts are used and brought back to life with a bright color RED paint finish! This 1970 Classic looking FJ40 will be converted to a V8 with an automatic transmission. This Cruiser will be living out it’s retirement on a lake in northern Canada. Watch as we build this Cruiser for a great retirement off-road vehicle.
