Quality, 100% total frame off restoration performed, top to bottom, inside and out. Completely overhauled 4.2 Liter 2F 6 cylinder engine with Toyota factory power steering, H42 4 speed transmission with new (not re-furbished) factory Toyota transfer case, powered disc brakes, factory Toyota steel wheels with hub caps, removable hard top (never removed since restoration), original headache rack, original sheet metal including fenders, bed and tailgate.
If you are looking for a like brand new 1965 Toyota FJ45 pickup, look no further. This truck was stripped down to the very last bolt, and refurbished back to original (or better than original quality) or purchased from Toyota, to maintain bone-stock brand new appearance and performance.
The frame was media blasted to bare metal and powder coated for extra durability and longevity. The drivetrain is newly and thoroughly refurbished 2F straight six engine mated to a 4 speed transmission and transfer case. When refurbished, factory Toyota power steering was added to this pickup as a bonus.
This truck always starts without hesitation. The axles are from a newer FJ40 with powered front disc brakes, again all factory Toyota. During restoration, the original 1965 firewall was replaced with a newer 1976 firewall with heater console and all switches and controls maintaining factory Toyota stock appearance.
The interior has been completely refurbished from top to bottom with new everything including all new factory Toyota window seals and rubber. Also replaced were the headliner, seat upholstery and floor mats. When you open the door, it smells just like a brand new car sitting on the showroom floor, and drives as well if not better than it looks.
This truck has never been in inclement weather (including rain), never 4 wheeled or left outside longer than a few hours. Less than 2,500 miles have been put on this truck since 1999.
