A Restomod ’70 Toyota FJ40 V-8

This ’70 Toyota FJ40 was discovered during a Craigslist search residing in rust-free New Mexico, but not in the condition that you see here. The FJ was all-original, displaying faded tan paint with some old graphics on it. Aside from it being all-original, which was a blessing to begin with, the FJ was also completely stock and free of rust, too. As often is the case with older off-road vehicles, it sat on a set of white spoked wagon wheels that were wrapped in all too aggressive Baja Claws.

It was just what Dale Manahan was looking for in a project. Dale had been looking for the same model and year truck his father had when he was just a kid. The FJ40 was just like the one he fondly remembered, making it even more sentimental of a build. Once the Toyota arrived to Dale in Massachusetts, he needed to have the FJ40 tuned up and its mechanicals updated to get it back to road-worthy condition. To do this, he enlisted the help of Greg’s Restorations in Rutland, Massachusetts, a shop that Dale discovered on the internet while searching for a nearby Toyota specialist.
