    Gorgeous!
    I've had 5 or 6 FJ40's. Should have kept one. They're too expensive now. '82 has front discs right? Nice rig!
    My last one was a built '71 with a small port corvette 350 v8, full roll cage and coilovers and front and rear lockers. Really miss that beast! It was also blue (metal flake though).
    Thanks for triggering some good memories 'Mouche :)

    Very nice, those things are definitely climbers as well.. That short wheel base and all that weight, not too many places that old boy wouldn't go.

    I never had one of the FJs as I thought Land Rovers were cooler than he!!. I got out of the army in 1969 and went to the Land Rover dealer first thing and bought this 1967 "88", this picture was taken in New Jersey during my two years of schooling there. This is the only known existing photo of this vehicle, though a car load of girls filmed me and this car somewhere on a highway in Nebraska on the way home using a movie camera a long time ago.

    Neat FJ 40 Richard, had a '76 model I kept for about 10 years. Not a hard-top but rag-top only. They were geared higher numerically than the hard-tops. The top speed was 56 mph, 58 downhill. On a good day with fresh plugs it would get about 8 1/4 mpg.
    A friend still has it on his farm and can't get him to sell it back to me, the prick.
