Just purchased a heavily modified G60 in Central Oregon. Looking forward to fixing it up more.

I believe the previous owner was in the Spokane Washington area and it was painted a wild, orange and green camo color with a removable rear roof access panel; does anyone recall this Patrol?

Thank you for organizing such a cool Patrol site!

The features that might be most identifiable are the strange roof access door (like a gun turret access or something) and the fact that it was previously painted a strange green and orange camo color. Looks like the original color was the light tan/beige, based upon interior.

It has a 300HP 350 crate engine, Fast EZ fuel injection, Scout Dana 44 running gear (3.73) with 4-wheel disk brakes, granny 4-speed Muncie and Dana 18 transfer case, 35" tires and the old Warn winch. Still getting to know it...

Looks great with the extra lights and the winch on the front! :)

Awesome Patrol! Looks badass, I too own a V8 Patrol and absolutely love it.
How are you finding the FAST efi system? I am toying with efi for my own Patrol. Also would be great to see some more photos of the underside ie. suspension set up, steering, driveshafts etc. for reference thanks!

How funny to run across your intro thread ... I drooled a bunch over that CL ad when it was up; and seriously kicked myself when it was taken down, for not jumping on it myself. I think you made a great buy & congrats on doing it!

Hope it brings you many years of happy exploring & tinkering ...

Well, the body work and paint are officially in process! Going with that new Toyota Cement (glossy primer grey with a bit of metallic). Found a great restoration shop that does a lot of classic Broncos and Scouts to work on it. I had to have new hinge pins made for the doors which were ridiculously expensive but I needed them. I ordered new windshield rubber and have the guy who deals the lights and rubber out of Colombia looking into whatever else he can get down there. Ordered a full seal set for an FJ40 Top in the hopes it can be modified to work with my top. They seem to be constructed very similarly. I’ll post photos soon!!

A few photos of the progress, so far...

We're on Primer coat Number 1; then block 180, block 250, block 400 wet and paint time!!
