This gus is SO cheesy, his descriptions always make me want to gag!
The sad thing is that he'll find some Cruiser newbie dope to sell this truck to, and then the guy tries to get some parts for the truck and has a heart attack! When he recovers he comes to the realization that he's now Marv's bitch if he wants parts, so he puts it up for sale, trying to recoup what he paid for it. Truck continues to relist on various sites for months, then finally some ******* with a big block hanging from a barn rafter makes him an offer, hacks the poor truck to bits to make the engine and "them big tars" fit, and goes muddin....scratch another FJ25....

Ist that a 40 with a 25 grill? I thought the doors on an fj25 were rounded like a cj or somthin.

Dan
only soft top 25's had the rounded doors, hard top doors were like early 40 doors.

I know you didn't mean it to be funny.......but I thought it was :)

Unfortunately that's the sad part, it is a pretty original hardtop 25. And rare too, Don't know of that many, two are here on the PBB. The hardtop had the square 40 door openings with the posts that stick up at the rear of the door frame.

I was all ready to fire off a complaint and was pissed to see he really had a 25.:mad:

The first time I saw a factory hardtop FJ25 I was skeptical too, it was Rob Meredith's 1961. But when I got into collecting factory literature I realized that the did make two different tub all the way to 1963/4, with the factory softops having the rounded tub (Warden's FJ25) and the factory hardtops having the square door openings (Vintage's FJ25).

A friend of mine has a 63 FJ40 original softop (no parts of the top left) that has the rounded door openings. He tried putting a hard top on it but couldn't find doors to fit. He ended up with what looked like either a mail truck or an ice cream truck. He sold the top. Those early years FJ40s had some good steel though. His 40 has been outside with no top for years and has VERY minimal rust, I'm amazed.

Where's the pics of the "factory heater", that's got my curiosity because one of my FJ25s has what I think is an original factory heater.

Hell after looking at this one I'm going to have to say that both of my 25s are looking pretty good :D

Only difference is I've only got about a $$ grand invested in both total !:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: All the way to the bank.

BTW two is better than one, cause I don't have to bend over for Marv:D :D
