1966 FJ45LV station wagon. Nice original rare Land Cruiser truck with amazing patina. The truck sat for ~20yrs in N. Washington before I bought it ~4yrs ago. I flushed the fuel system, rebuilt the carb and installed a new OE fuel pump. Fresh fluids, new plugs and it runs and idles smooth. I swapped the front drum axle for a safer FJ40 disc axle and did the Geo Metro power brake booster/dual master cylinder upgrade at the same time. I drove it home from the local 4x4 shop that bled the brakes and did the front end alignment. It drove fine during those 2miles and I went thru all the gears. That 2mi drive was July 2017 and it hasn't been driven since. I'm selling it because I bought a FJ55 that is a daily driver and I just don't see myself taking the time and money to restore this rare LV as planned. Its a solid LV truck with a rust free roof and healthy quarters. The only existing rust is primarily from sitting water and poor drainage, not from coastal salt weather. The side cargo window was missing and probably let water into the rear floorpan areas. Both rear seat floor corners are rusted(see pics)and the drivers/passenger front pan areas are a little thin. The tailgate hinges are rusted and torn off the tailgate, probably from water being trapped inside the tailgate. I have never lowered the tailgate or raised the upper gate lid, its wired shut and in my opinion is probably the worst part of the entire truck. I do have a nice used LV tailgate with all emblems and hinges that I will include in the sale. I also have 2 brand new repop tail lights and a NOS head liner for an LV. I was never able to locate an original LV backseat, so that rare part is missing. I have the original 15wheels with vintage pizza cutters(dried out) and 2 original chrome acorn hubcaps in rough shape. The truck now has a nice restored set of 16 split rims with mild mud tires that have 90% tread left. It has a new windshield and windshield gasket. I saved the original drum front axle and all the other brake parts I have removed, in case someone wants to do a complete period correct 1966 restoration and try to sell it for $175K like the 1965 FJ45LV that sold last year at the Ca. Mecum auction.
