Restoration:This FJ43 has its original 4.2L Type 2F inline 6 cylinder engineand 4-speed transmission. We performedextensive inspections of all mechanical components and they were serviced as needed. The original carburetor was rebuilt and tuned. All brakes were serviced and pads replaced, fresh fluids changed all around, new battery and alternator were also installed. Everything works as it should, lights, horn, instrument gauges, etc. New electrical wiring and harness throughout. To maintain its originality, a list of OEM parts were replaced where possible, some of which include emblems, lighting, weatherstripping, and more.
The entire frame was stripped down to the bare metal. The paint process was done using high quality PPG paint in its original Freeborn Red (code 309). The chassis was also stripped and then coated for anti-corrosive purposes. Although the upholstery was replaced recently by previous owner, we restored and painted all the seat hardware. We installed a vinyl soft top made to the original measurements with a custom steel frame and ambulance doors. A set of 5 newOEM steel 15" wheels powder coated and wrapped withnew BF Goodrich T/A 31x10.5, all including new OEM caps.
