Description

This Land Cruiser FJ40 is almost 100% original with the exception of an Old Man Emu 2.5 inch lift kit (with OME shocks and steering stabilizer), and a fabricated rear tailgate. Both rear wheel arches, rear sill, drivers side floor board and rear quarter panels have all been replaced. The inside tub and both floor boards were coated with Herculiner. The areas that would need attention are both rockers since they have not yet been replaced and are rusted through. Any other rust is just surface rust with no structural rust.
It has new tail lights, new reverse light, front turn signal lenses, fenders (used factory originals), front brake pads, and all new flex brake lines. The previous owner recently replaced the water pump, distributor, alternator, HD shackels, 31x 10.5R 15C BFG All Terrain tires, plug wires, stock seats reupholstered, new clutch and carb rebuild, new gas tank, sun visors, muffler, tranny mounts, fuel pump, brake master cylinder, two new stainless steel braided oil supply lines to block. Receipts can go into more detail on other items that have been replaced or worked on over the years. That said, I have service records on this vehicle going back to 1983 from the previous 4 owners all the way up to present.
This FJ40 starts up the first try every time, and runs great! The previous owner drove it from Colorado to San Diego at the end of May with absolutely no problems. The motor and transmission are 100% original. The F1 straight 6 engine with the 3 speed manual transmission burns some oil, but not excessively and runs very smoothly.
I have had no issues with this FJ since I purchased it and started to slowly restore it. I went through and repaired electrical issues like the turn signals, brake lights, reverse light, Hi-Low headlight beam. I also went through the vents and heater controls and now all work perfectly.
This is a very well maintained vehicle with service records to prove it! It is nearly 100% stock with the exception of the things noted above. Pretty much all the original parts are there and I have a box of some spare parts including a Bimimi top.
Things to note – at some point one of the previous owners had the undercarriage covered with a protective liner (like Herculiner) and there are some areas where it is starting to come off. There is no bad rust on the chassis that I have found, other than surface rust.
This FJ40 has never been restored. After purchasing it I started to refresh so that it would be very presentable when I drove it or parked it at my house. The paint is not perfect, the panels dot match perfectly, but that gives it a TON of character. Everyone that does see it points that out in a good way and tells me not to paint it.
If you wanted a complete restoration than this is not the right FJ for you, but if you wanted something completely original and kept stock than this is the one!
Things that I started to address but will still need attention are the speedometer and oil pressure gauge. From reading on the forums, both are notorious for not working properly. The speedometer does work but sticks around 20mph - it does read accurately but needs a tap on the glass. I have not yet tried to diagnose the oil pressure gauge yet.
I have done my best to accurately and honestly describe this FJ40, please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to respond quickly and and answer the best I can.
