If you want an original 1966 fj45 LV Wagon stop reading. If you want a custom Wagon with all the upgraded features keep reading.
I purchased this wagon out of Montana fifteen years ago and have been working on it ever since. I have lost interest in working on it, so it's time to sell it. It has come along way but still needs more work and love to be finished. I will list all the parts and upgrades from the front to the back.
The front bumper is custom made and has a tow bar for towing.
I have two new front fenders for it, one is on it.
I have upgraded the headlights to briter lights. I have also put the front turn signals in the marker lights so they are not on the fenders.
I have a hi jack lift on the front bumper.
I have upgraded to a Saginaw Power Steering.
It has a double steering arm with cross over steering.
The radiator was cleaned and is stock.
The front axle was changed out with a mid 80's toyota solid axle with disc brakes. It has 4. 10 gears in it.
It has new 35 inch mudder tires on it. The rims are in great shape as well.
It has a spring over lift with a custom shakle reversal with no bumper steer.
I have a newer Toyota Power Brake Booster.
The motor is a Chevy 350, with very low miles. It has a lot of newer parts. The motor has ceramic headers. The exhaust is a larger diameter custom exhaust.
It also has a Chevy 350 Auto Tansmission and Chevy np205 transfer case. It has new drive lines that were custom made.
I put in a Chevy Camero tilt steering wheel with ------- Steering Wheel.
It has a new instrument cluster with new gauges.
The heater is stock and has been restored.
I have cut out some of the floor that was rusted and welded in new metal.
I have changed the bench seat to new Chevy Silverado bucket seats.
The rear seat is a fold and tumble from a Jeep Wrangler. I also put in rear seat belts.
It has a Tuffy Center console with a stereo slot. I have a new Alpine Stereo for it (never installed).
The rear axle is a Dana 44 with disk brakes, and emergency break. I also installed stainless steel brake lines on the rear.
The gas tank was removed and restored. I used the POR15 Kit that is on the inside and outside of the tank, it will rust or fail you.
It has four new Pro Comp Shocks.
I have a custom rear bumper with a two inch receiver.
The battery is brand new and is located in the rear of the wagon.
It has two gas pumps one is macanical and the other is electrical.
The glass is all there and in good shape.
The headliner and door panels need to be replaced.
The body is in good condition with only minor surface fust.
The rear corner panels are in ruff shape. The rear drop gate is also in ruff shape. I have not done any body work on it, besides the floor. There is no bondo that I'm aware of.
The cruiser starts and runs good. I would not drive it across the country but I drive it all over Northern Utah.
I have several totes of extra parts for the cruiser and motor.
I will arrange to have it shipped any where in the world, buyer is responsible for all shipping. You could also tow it with a truck any where you want.
My reserve is fair and I will not give out my reserve price. If the high bidder comes close to the reserve I will sell the cruiser.
I will be out of town for some of the auction time, so I may be delayed getting back to your emails or questions.
I require $500 down and the rest upon pick up or shipping.
Thanks for looking and if you want more pictures let me know.

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Fri, 02 Aug 2013 11:57:00 EST
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.
I recently took the redesigned 2014 Toyota 4Runner for a muddy romp in Pennsylvania. While the mechanical bits and pieces beneath the body-on-frame SUV trudge forward into the new model year with very few tweaks, the truck "receives a rugged new exterior design and interior refinements that add comfort and convenience without sacrificing its hallmark performance capability and excellent value," says the automaker.

A quick visual scan of the 4Runner reveals a new front end with a more "aggressive" and "muscular" appearance (yes, I'm quoting Toyota) that includes new headlights, grille and hood scoop. A roof rack is now standard across all trims, too. While SR5 and Trail grades have a bland color-keyed grille insert that gives the face a monochromatic appearance, the range-topping Limited (shown above and in our gallery) snarls with a silver-plated chin that gives it a bit more character.
New soft-touch surfaces within the cabin provide a more upscale environment and a bright new Optitron instrument panel improves readability and functionality. As before, the SR5 and Trail models arrive with fabric upholstery or optional Softex seats (synthetic leather). Genuine hides are reserved for the Limited trim, which is also fitted with Toyota's unique X-REAS (X-Relative Absorber System) automatic suspension system as standard equipment.
Toyota is not bullish on EVs. That comes from the company's North American CEO, Jim Lentz, who said the company will focus not on electrification, but on continued hybridization with a long-term focus on hydrogen fuel cells.
Lentz questioned the long-range ability of EVs, saying that Toyota feels "there are better alternatives, such as hybrids and plug-in hybrids, and tomorrow with fuel cells." Lentz spoke about Toyota's focus on hydrogen following Forbes Brainstorm Green conference and barely a week after a battery deal between Tesla and Toyota ended, according to Automotive News.
That deal provided for 2,500 battery packs for the Rav4 EV. While valuable to Toyota, the deal "was never about open-ended volume," Lentz said. "It was time to either continue or stop. My personal feeling was that I would rather invest my dollars in fuel cell development than in another 2,500 EVs."
