SOLD! Used Chevy V8 – FJ40 – Perfect for V8 Conversion

SOLD on RED LINE!

Recently purchased a 1975 Land Cruiser FJ40 out of Alamosa, Colorado and I’m working to restore the Cruiser back to original condition. Looking to sell the 1969 Chevrolet Impala Engine (out of a police cruiser) that’s currently in there. It runs strong, but one cylinder is misfiring. I ran a compression test and seven of the eight cylinders came back at 120. One didn’t register anything and has an unidentified issue. See video for full details. Block number is 770010. The engine has been pulled out and is ready to be loaded onto your truck or trailer. I have a forklift to put it in your truck.

FJ40 Bottle Jack - Yellow

OEM Paint for FJ40 Bottle Jack, Rods, and Crank

That FJ40 bottle jack. It’s a thing of beauty. If you’re lucky enough to have the original one in your Toyota Land Cruiser, then it’s probably been scratched up pretty good under the driver’s seat and could use a bit of a refresh on the paint. That orangish yellowish color can be pretty tricky to nail down. It’s not quite yellow and not quite orange, but somewhere in between.

About a year ago we were restoring a 1977 FJ40 and were lucky enough to come across a bottle jack, both jack handles, and the crank for the handle on Craigslist. The color was pretty faded, so we began the search for the right paint. Sure, we could go down and have a quart of the good stuff mixed up at Dale’s Automotive Paint Supply in Colorado Springs, but then we’re talking $60 and our budget was more like $10 (scope creep on this 77′ LC had definitely set in!).

We hit the spray paint isle in a couple big box stores, namely Home Depot and Wal-Mart, but came up with a big goose-egg. Next stop was Pep Boys, who had a massive selection. We honed in on two different paints and found one that hit the jackpot: Dupli-Color  Model # DA1663 “School Bus Yellow” General Purpose Acrylic Enamel (12 oz.).

Back at the shop, we sanded and primed the bottle jack, hand crank, and jack rods. After the y dried, we hung the parts up by a wire and went to town with the School Bus Yellow spray paint. It laid on nice and thick and smooth. After three coats, our old, crappy looking bottle jack was now a thing of beauty!

Have you used a different paint or different method? If so, share it in the comments section below.

FJ45 Red

Custom Crafted Aluminum, FJ-45 Extra Cab, A.KA. Project “SnowFlake”

FJ-45 Extra Cab

This custom crafted truck is an all aluminum FJ-45 Extra Cab!This meant another 8″ of cab space. As we all know The FJ-45′ Pick ups lack interior leg room!  With all the modern components you can think of while keeping a Classy/Hot Rod/Classic theme, A healthy V8 engine, 5 Speed trans”NV4500″ , A/C and Navagation was installed.  This truck was  top shelf all the way! A custom aluminum body was crafted with the custom removable hard top. 350 H.P. V8 conversion. 5 speed transmission. Orion Transfercase. Old Man Emu (OME) 2.5″ suspension lift, Powers this hand crafted Cruiser with ease and comfort. Red Line Installed ARB air lockers both front and rear, disc brakes front and rear and a large capacity fuel tank allowing this truck to handle and drive in the safest way. A Power steering conversion was also fitted . Custom leather interior with red stitching,  Custom rear mounted Hurricane A/C – Heat conversion was built to keep the inner passenger floor and dash area clean.  Red Line installed a Custom Kenwood nav/stereo providing tunes and modern bluetooth/ navigation. Power seats from a 2006 Toyota 4 runner provide comfort and electric adjustments while re wrapped  Katskin Leather with red stitching, trims out and matches the custom tan interior.  A Custom removable rear bed soft top was Crafted to mimic the early factory Toyota FJ-40 soft tops. We then did the exterior paint with  factory Toyota Landcruiser Red Color ” Free born” red paint. The trim color “Cygnus White” was used in contrast with the red to blend the Classy Hot Rod Retro theme. Red Line snag’d up some reproduction early Landcruiser hub caps for the Factory steel wheels. Wrapping the wheels with Toyo MT Open Country 33×10.50×15″ was a perfect choice for us to blend in the Retro feel.
