The one & only in the world BJ40 "Wide Fat Forty." An extremely rare classic & investment that is certain to increase in value. Matching engine. Originally imported from Costa Rica in 2011 after it under went a complete frame off restoration by Pilgrim Restorations. The expert craftsmen there spent over 1250 hours hand crafting every panel from scratch using English wheels and new steel to make the body 6" wider than stock. The labor alone would cost nearly 90k. Every detail was painstakingly recreated down to even the precision spot welds and period correct 653 Olive Green paint that remains in great shinny condition. The frame, drive train, doors, fenders, and accessories remain OEM factory so parts will not be a problem. This vehicle includes front disk brakes, power steering, OEM 15" rims, and a book of photos documenting the restoration.
