For sale is this rare 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 Diesel. It was imported from the country of Costa Rica and has a clean Oregon title where it is located. This BJ40 is a gem; it’s almost impossible to find Diesel cruisers in this condition and so well preserved. In the course of many years living in Costa Rica, we have not come across a BJ40 that comes close to this one. We know the market and you just don’t find them like this very often.
It was purchased new in 1979 by a family in Costa Rica and sold to us by the eldest son, kept in a garage and only taken out for pleasure cruising and trips around town. Which such light use, it has 78,000 original kilometers (64,000 Miles). This BJ40 has absolutely no rust or other signs of deterioration of the body, which is common in these vehicles in any climate. What you see in the photos and video, is what you see in-person with this vehicle.
The B Diesel motor is known to be a workhorse and nearly indestructible, with fuel-economy of over 20 miles per gallon. The BJ40 is a manual 4-speed with original steering. The vehicle shifts smoothly and travels straight with great power. The 4-cylinder motor is made for low end torque climbing and cruising of 45-50 mph. A pioneer stereo with CD player and new speakers were installed.
It was carefully maintained, up until the day of sale by the original owner. Everything except for paint and seat/door coverings is original, including head-liner. Our trusted mechanic, with years of experience with these vehicles, did a complete inspection of the vehicle. Based on the inspection, we did the following maintenance in 2016:
Cleaned motor and injection system and replaced injection headsReviewed and changed Glow PlugsChanged oil and all filtersNew beltsRevision and change of rubber sealsChanged primary pump on the clutch and adjustedNew radiatorCleaning and adjustment of brakes, replaced brake fluidNew batteryPainted top, rack and ladder
Paint was re-done in 2009 in Carnival Red (T-335), inside and out. The paint is clean and professionally done. We re-painted the vehicle top, rack and ladder in original white. This is a vehicle that doesn’t come along very often. On June 18th, we entered into the Seaside, Oregon Car Show and won the "Founders Award". If you have been waiting to find that near perfect Diesel Land Cruiser, then your wait is over!
