This Land Cruiser was purchased from original owner.
He owned it for over 45 years.
It ran well but did need a few repairs when purchased
although was driven most every day.
It has 50,212 original miles.
It has a production date of June 1972
and has always been registered with the state.
I purchased with the intent of doing a full restoration.
I did have every thing fixed that did not work,
also had new front disc brakes installed and
new wheel cylinders on drum brakes on rear.
I have a few uninstalled items
that are new and will be included in sale.
This is a great candidate for full restoration
or drive it and make improvements as you go.
The body tub is solid showing
a few signs of surface rust,
but no rust through areas that I noticed.
Front and rear floor pans, rear sill,
and quarter panels are solid.
Frame is very good,
bottom side of body is good.
According to the information I received,
the body was painted the original red color
in the 90's because of fading.
It comes with a complete hardtop as shown
and I was told it has never been off.
The doors are solid.
Frame has no visible issues.
Has the original factory spare tire and wheel.
I had tire removed to paint wheel,
tire has original matching factory
Dunlop tube with spare tire.
Tire has been on the ground but not much.
Spare tire is in very good condition.
Factory seats are good condition
and I believe have been recovered.
Dash controls, gauges, lights,
both heaters are present and working.
The speedometer and odometer both work
and I have an affidavit from original owner
stating miles are true and correct.
Cruiser has the original F engine
with a 3-speed manual transmission on floor.
The Cruiser runs, drives, shifts, and stops.
It has had disc brakes added to the front end, stops great.
Carb is a holly 2 barrel.
It fires right up and runs like a sewing machine.
Factory decals are still present on valve cover, etc.
This FJ40 spent it's entire life
on a small ranch in the South,
stored in barn carport when not in use.
It was used on a ranch, not pampered in a big city.
All electrical issues corrected,
brakes rebuilt, engine tuned with
new Toyota parts and gaskets, new dash pad,
paint buffed so it shines, new factory emblems,
new factory wheels and hub caps, headliner
and new top seals, (not installed),
wheel bearings packed, spring bushings replaced,
new battery, new exhaust system,
front end alignment, water pump, belts,
new OEM front door weather seals, etc.
This is a great candidate for restoration,
or to enjoy and take to the next level of your suiting.
These rust free original FJ40's are the best to start with.
Everyone tends to make them their own creation.
