  • About my Cars
    Owned a 72 240 from 79 thru 85. Moved to an industrial space in a seedy area of town and was forced to sell the car and purchased a ratty mini truck. Several years later bought a 79 FJ40 with 60K miles. Now has close to 400K miles and is my daily driver and work truck. Always regretted selling that S30 and have been dreaming of recreating those memories for 10 years now. Dec 10, 2019 I'm driving 400 miles to pick 1/71 rust free Series 1 car and load it on a truck. Body is perfect but owner unknowingly swapped engines in 89 when it needed a rebuild so numbers don't match. Head and block are now from a 260 but everything else is original. It's been garaged for 12 years. I'm pretty excited.

  1. Additionally, current owner claims in 1989, when rebuild was done it was cheaper to swap the engine than rebuild so the car now has an L26 engine. I'm wondering if there are any real disadvantages to that engine providing compression is good. Reportedly bore was the same, stroke was lengthened, loss in horsepower but gain in torque. Any insights?
