Toyota Fj40 Land Cruiser 1981
I can’t begin to emphasize how excellent the condition is of the inside and out of this Fj40 . Not a screaming
fast, tear it up rig, but an unrivaled crawler in the outback. Never abused, it remains an icon of endurance, a
philosophy of engineering over-design, in this era of throwaway.
It is a very well maintained plug and play great running machine. With no hidden problems, this cruiser is ready
to go another 35 years. Starts, drives, and stops like new, as it should. The strength of this particular Fj40 is
how stock original and uncut it is. This cruiser has never been painted and is all there including the padded roll
bar, original dashpad with no cracks, plug in glove box light, original manuals, original touch-up paint, original
floormats with no holes or tears, crank up jack and tools, folding back seats, front seats that are in good
condition, heater console with cover and finally the original unmolested 6 cylinder high compression,
low-end-torque engine and its support hardware that was supplied when new in 1981. Original repair manuals for
engine, body and emissions are also included. Some manuals are in tattered condition but still usable. Under hood
emissions are there but not currently hooked up. The FJ also comes equipped with lockable front hubs, front disc
brakes, good tires, a classic safari roof rack, rear tow ball which is intended to tow and maneuver a small boat or
Cosmetically the detractors on this vehicle are the typical rust spots on the rear of the body. Since not
considered a structural problem, these “battle scars” were coated with rust stop and left as is.
The frame, springs, mounts and undercarriage are all in great condition. All front end steering linkage knuckles
were re-done not long ago as was replacement of the water pump.
If restoration is your goal you could add to this excellent original Fj40 foundation.
