This was a very lucky find and I am happy that my 40 series collegues nagged   :meeting: on me, when they saw it advertised.  :drinks:

Not sure whether it is a 55 or a very rare 56 (only Japan), but all signs are there that this FJ is indeed a 56. If a 55 then it will be one that is similar to a 56, but Toyota shipped them to other countries as a 55 Model.

Vehicle is SA Registered with legal papers and disk.  ;D  

I will keep ya all posted about da Resto!  :jt:

ETA Upington was 11:30. Miss Piggy was then loaded on trailer behind a trusty steed!  :jt:
The Plasma cable on winch also did some good work.

After a nice Lunch  :drinks: at the Dros in Upington we started our journey back home. GPS gave Home ETA 23:45 and Red Sands Lodge 10km before Upington @ 17:00. Guess what we decided!?  :P

Miss Piggy parked safely in front of chalet!  ;D Note the F250 in front!  :jt:

After a decent shower I started to explore a little....  ::)



... and opened the Lucky Packet!



According to new Info, the car was white with red interior!  :o Did the Importer use it for an illegal brothel in Upington!?  ??? ::)



Engine bay that runs with air.  :jt: Quite impressive as everyone tends to go electrical in future!  ;D

Will post that later. We had to strap the bonnet down and it was later in the evening raining at Red Sands. But the Vin Plate is there!
It is a FJ55, but has all the signs of a 56, also the higher bonnet. So, I assume it was build as a 56 for export! Thus a 55 then!
