QUALITY RESTORATION, VERY CORRECT, 3.9 I6, 3 SP, PWR STEER, COLD AC, GR8 DRIVER
The Land Cruiser is truly becoming the next great classic 4x4. But even as they keep appreciating, few get the kind of restoration that this 1971 Toyota FJ40 did. The full build has returned it factory specs, and also given it a few subtle upgrades (like air conditioning!) And best of all, it's priced below many of the other FJ40s out there that never even got this much investment.
This Land Cruiser really turns back the clock. The full restoration is so fresh that the blue paint almost looks like you're at the Toyota dealer in 1971. Plus, the white hardtop with matching white grille gives this the appearance of a classic two-tone machine. And take some time to look over all the details. The hood trim, locking anchors, tow hooks, turn signals, and all the badging is fresh and correct. You even have factory wheel covers and chunky bias ply tires! This Land Cruiser has been invested in so well, it feels like a time machine.
The robust interior is part of the FJ's bulletproof attitude, but it still takes a watchful eye to get it to this level. The bright blue on the dash and doors look great with the bright metal trim pieces. Even the shifting instructions for the 4x4 are still bolted to the glove box lid! The seating looks great with a taut black over the driver's bucket with storage box underneath, and in the rear, the side-mounted jump seats are iconic. You'll grab the thin, grippy steering wheel with correct Toyota center cap in your left hand, and the tall gearstick with your right one, and that's when you'll know what an old-school 4x4 really feels like. But even with all these correct pieces, there are a few essential upgrades that were expertly installed. For example, you have newer modern seatbelts, and there's cold air conditioning to make sure you never break a sweat on the street or trail.
Toyota's trusty and torquey 3.9-liter inline-six is the backbone of the Land Cruiser's tough-as-nails reputation. Just like the rest of this vehicle, the motor looks like there have been some nice investments while also remaining period-correct. This attitude is reinforced the moment you feel it fire up easily and idle smoothly. The three-speed manual transmission gives you full control over this go-anywhere machine, and the four-wheel drive system will remind you why this was the choice for so many explorers.
An FJ40 restored to this level is hot commodity in the market right now, and the price has never been better. That's why you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
