THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The Toyota Land Cruiser in its many sizes and configurations has had a long and successful history of reliable service through the most rugged of conditions. Patterned after the ubiquitous Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser demonstrated that Toyota could produce much more than just economical cars. Introduced in 1960, the FJ40 and its variants remained in production for a quarter century- the kind of longevity that demonstrates true value, quality and utility. They became indispensable in unsettled and remote areas of the world, hauled safaris through Africa, developed a devoted following among America's off-road culture and have spawned a host of imitators.

Offered here is a rarely seen and extremely desirable final model year, left-hand drive example of the FJ40 'soft top'. After acquiring the vehicle from the original owner, the marquee specialists at House of Cruisers found the highly original and unmolested truck worthy of a full frame-off, rotisserie nut-and-bolt restoration. From bumper to bumper, every aspect of the truck was meticulously brought back to better than new condition.

The exterior was brought down to bare metal and refinished in Toyota's desirable shade of Heath Gray. Mechanically, the original 2f engine was fully restored to the original specifications and received an OEM clutch, factory exhaust system, and the OEM axels were fully serviced and re-sealed. The truck rides on a new Old Man Emu suspension and OEM wheels and hubcaps wrapped in new BF Goodrich rubber. Fully rebuilt front disc and rear drum brakes keep everything in check. In the rare event that you should need assistance navigating rough terrain, the front bumper is fitted with a new 8274 Warn winch. Inside, the rugged interior received new brown upholstery, custom-made floor mats, and a new Nostalgic AC unit. The OEM roll bar and canvas soft top keep the beautifully finished interior and its occupants safe in all conditions.

With room for plenty of friends to hit the road or trail, this sought after final model year FJ40 soft top, restored with no expense spared by one of the most respected marque experts in the business, is a top example of the vintage Toyota Land Cruiser that would be the envy of the crowd at any show or off-road event.
