After Land Cruiser - What was Far became Near.
SURVIVOR ALERT!
A vehicle is only original once. Anyone can write a check to restore something but it’s never quite the same. There are those of us that place the greatest value on largely untouched classics. If you are one of these people, you will appreciate this remarkable Freeborn Red 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 with 51,200 Kilometers (<32,000) original miles. There are a few things I could have painted, touched up or attempted to refurbish but I did not. What you see here is an original Land Cruiser FJ40 that has seen very little use over the las 34 years.
I call this truck "Colombian Soul" as this Land Cruiser FJ40 was originally from Colombia. She's a remarkable "preservation class" FJ40! You can see every spot weld on this truck and she has all the glory of a rust free survivor, She looks, drives and runs like you would expect from a vehicle with 32,000 miles, pull the choke, turn the key and she bursts to life every time.
She’s not restored, not repainted, not rebuilt. She’s ORIGINAL AND WELL PRESERVED! Here's your chance to own this epic original 1980 Land Cruiser FJ40 that retains her original paint, interior, engine, and drive train. She’s obviously been cared for with devoted attention and nothing has been done to impact the originality other than some great upgrades along the way. Her original paint is in beautiful condition. This is great Land Cruiser, rust free un-restored and pure understated COOL. Just turn the key and the fun begins!
A Little South American Land Cruiser Info -
Normally, trucks from Colombia are “bare bones”, they did not have power steering, A/C, dash pads, emission equipment, disc brakes, roll bars, bucket seats or even heaters. But this truck HAS power steering, A/C with new compressor, heater, front disc brakes (new pads), Stock roll bar, split bench in front, long jump seats in back, fog lamps and more, She’s in excellent condition. While nearly all Colombian trucks were delivered as soft tops, this gal has an aftermarket MPR fiberglass hard top that appears to have been on the truck since day one.

Details & Condition
The truck has a precious few nicks and scratches that come with 34 years of age but any owner would be proud of her overall condition. I have pictured the body in detail and you will also find a video. She runs and drives excellent and isn't even broken in. You will NOT find diamond plate, fender flares, tape decks, CB antenna, bed lining, jerry cans, roof racks, a V8 or other modifications. The inline six looks and runs great! I put all new plug wires and gave her a tune up just due to the age of the components. Steering, clutch and 4-Wheel Drive transmission are all in excellent working order as they should be for a vehicle with such little use. This FJ40's body, undercarriage and frame are excellent. None of the FJ40 rust issues exist here. The floors are all solid and shine with factory paint and the original sound and heat barrier applied by Toyota. The interior is excellent and EVERYTHING works, as it should. The radio is vintage and I assume was installed by the dealer. The A/C blows cold and heater works well, turn signals, hazards, headlight high and low beams, wipers, taillights, backup lights, license plate lights, odometer, speedometer, fuel, oil, amp and temp gauges all functioning flawlessly. The original upholstery has one tear on the drivers side bolster (pictured) but is otherwise excellent. There are speakers installed in the hard top but they are not connect to an audio source. The working radio speaker is under the front seat.
The truck has 3.70 gears and the H41 transmission with "Granny Low". This FJ40’s suspension, which consists of rugged solid axles and OEM leaf springs at both ends, has a raised stance with 33x7.50 tires. At the back of the truck's frame you will find the factory rear step, flanked by the original bumpettes to assist your passengers who want to climb in back. The truck has a fiberglass hardtop made by MPR. MPR was the premier manufacturer of hardtops for FJ40's in South America as nearly all FJ40's shipped into that region as soft top models. The top is in great shape, high quality and has appears to have been on the truck since it was new. The MPR hard top give you one big swing out door in back rather than two ambulance doors. This provides improved visibility in the rear view mirror. Under it all you will find OEM 16 inch steel gray split rims and hubcaps with AVM locking hubs surrounded by 10 ply General LT 33x7.50 tires that have plenty of life left in them. Hanging on the swing out rear tire carrier is the matching spare tire.
Summary
The FJ40 has been in the USA for many years and I have a clear Iowa title. She's in beautiful condition and has been stored inside. I have two of the previous owners names. This Land Cruiser has been driven only 32,000 miles in her 34 years, pop the hood and you'll find an original 135 horsepower 2F six cylinder which looks and runs excellent! The whole truck reeks with low miles. The dash, the seats, the floors, the engine bay and the undercarriage all bear witness to having been used sparingly. Driven an average of just 940 miles a year and she’s now waiting for your next adventure! All in all, everything is in unbelievable original condition. STUDY THE PHOTOS and WATCH THE VIDEO. High bidder is responsible for pick up or delivery, I will assist in any way I can. I would like a wire transfer within 7 business days please. FJ40’s like this are rare, hard to come by and continue to appreciate if well cared for. I encourage you to call me at (515) 864 1275 and thanks for looking! I reserve the right to end this Auction early.
