READY FOR ANYTHING & A GREAT LOOK! REBUILT 235 INLINE 6, 3 SPEED MANUAL, TOUGH!
You're seeing more and more Toyota FJ40s for sale, and the reason is simple: the market is on the move! This 1967 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is way more than a Japanese Jeep, and looks far more rough-and-ready than most with its lifted stance, traditional khaki paint job, and functional, go-anywhere demeanor.
Seeing an open-air FJ is not a common thing, and when this very sturdy-looking 4x4 showed up, it practically stopped traffic driving by our showroom. A lot of that is surely due to the Desert Beige paint, which is flat, not glossy, yet still accentuates the blunt hood and super straight bodywork. The finish is nicer than you'd expect for something designed to get dirty and scrape through the underbrush, but it's clear that this Toyota has led an easy life since getting a full makeover a few years ago. The blunt face has the characteristic close-set headlights and central grille opening, painted white in this truck's case, which is how they typically came from the factory. There's a simple front bumper with a heavy-duty winch, a set of brush guards on the headlights, and stand-up parking lights, all of which give it a very function-over-form look that's quite endearing. Original badges have been reinstalled and with that beefy spare tire mounted out back, this FJ looks ready for anything.
Having served in every country on earth, the Toyota's interior is purely about ruggedness rather than high fashion, and that's perfectly OK here. Black bucket seats are actually comfortable enough for all-day slogs and there's a tubular roll bar overhead in case things take a turn for the worse. The gauges are cleverly fitted into an instrument panel that can be mounted on either side depending on where the Toyota is serving duty, and that long shifter handle manages a 3-speed manual gear box. There are no frills here, not even an AM radio, although the back seat does offer some cozy accommodations for two, and the floors appear to have been covered with spray-in bedliner material that's ultra-tough. And for protection, there's the roll bar, matching tubular steel doors, and a bikini top, just in case.
Toyota's smooth, torquey, and eminently reliable 235 cubic inch inline-six provides the motivation and if there's a more reliable machine on this planet, it hasn't been invented yet. Designed to be easy to service and to work in the most extreme conditions, it's surely up for a Saturday afternoon crawling along your favorite trail. Freshly rebuilt, it's not detailed for show under the hood, but it's clean and functional with all the proper hardware for going where others fear to tread. It starts easily and pulls the truck around with vigor, and thanks to the 2-speed transfer case and lift kit on the suspension, it's perfectly happy to idle along at barely a crawl, ignoring obstacles as big as bowling balls. There's a single exhaust pipe that gives the six a unique sound and there are a lot of new components underneath, including Rough Country shocks, a new front drive shaft, rebuilt brakes, among others, so it's ready to enjoy. 15-inch steel wheels are finished in black with simple hubcaps and wrapped with giant 33x10.50-15 off-road radials that complete the butch look.
If you're looking for a fun 4x4 that's not a Jeep, or are interested in an off-roader that'll hold its value today and tomorrow, then the Toyota FJ40 is always a smart choice. Call today!
