The tough, time proven, no-nonsense FJ 40 was produced for the U.S. market for over two decades (1960-1984). Growing out of a decade of experience in building hardy off-roaders following WWII, Toyota's FJ series proved to be a smash hit. Exceptionally tough, dependable, and versatile, FJs quickly established themselves as worthy contenders against the likes of Land Rovers Series IIs and Jeep CJs. Still heavily sought after for their go anywhere capabilities and bulletproof reliability, FJ40s are found today shuttling guests around luxury resorts and game preserves as well as on the news as troop and materiel haulers for rebels and dictators alike.
The Motorcar Offered
This 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 40 4x4 has been restored and maintained to a high standard. It retains its original factory Freeborn Red paintjob with the correct complementary Cygnus White roof. With a production date of April 1971, this FJ 40 has spent most of its life in sunny southern Arizona and for that reason this car is and has been kept rust free and with no evidence of past bodywork. It features a lot of correct and optional equipment that is not often seen in FJ 40s such as a removable hard top roof with optional roll bar, original red seat belts, a brush bar, a rear step bumper and a factory tow hitch. The interior has plenty of room and this example is equipped with the rear fold down seats that accommodate four additional passengers. The engine compartment is very clean and home to the original 3.9 liter 6-cylinder F-code engine which on a recent test drive started swiftly and runs very well. It is coupled to the correct 3-speed column mounted manual transmission, the operation of which has been found to be quite smooth. A recent front end alignment was performed to ensure that this FJ tracks well at highway speeds on the open road.
This nostalgic truck runs and drives smoothly and has an outback/safari feel even when getting ice cream with the grandchildren in the concrete jungle.
