BEST OF THE BEST!........1979 Toyota FJ40 Land cruiser fully loaded with every option and then some! FOR SALE:1979 FJ40 land cruiser fully loaded. This vehicle was a frame off restoration by TLC4X4 in California in 2003 and has been beautifully maintained ever since. TLC4X4 is one of the largest FJ restorers in the country and creaters of the scratch built ICON FJ’s topping over $200K. These guys are the best of the best as time has proven.Restoration started with afull mechanical overhaul, ee sales flyer below from earlier purchase. From every nut and bolt to every wiring harness......all Toyota spec'd. Immaculate job and another beautiful showroom re-creation from Jonathan Ward. Truck only sees sunny days every week or so and has always been garaged.I have all original manuals and tool kit, arn winch bag with tools (brand new, ever used), lus a soft top and bikini, s well as a matching painted tailgate for when hardtop is off. All locks are original as is all glass; this was not a parted together truck like most you find on Ebay, ll VIN's match. Rims are original Toyota powder coated black with correct Toyota center caps. I have all receipts for work done and bill of sale from TLC4X4. Upgradesinclude a Tuffy console, ld Man Emu suspension, ine-X inside and under tub, LC high back leather seats, n Alpine CD stereo as well as an ARB bumper and air lockers. A/C was professionally converted to R134a by TLC and has the high and low side quick connect ports in line as well as new hoses. Everything else is original or rebuilt. This truck needs absolutely nothing, ust a driver. Very strong 2F engine, o leaks. Recently replaced the front knuckle seals and bearings, aster cylinder etc.last month. All mechanical is absolutely perfect as well as the body and paint. Sound system is incredible! All is in perfect running condition ready to roll. Honestly, t's like driving a manual 4runner. Great on highway. This was a true find worthy of Wards talents and carefully chosen. "Barn find", f you will,with an updated twist to make these old awesome rare vehicles daily drivers on and off the road. Seriousinquiries only! This FJ is priced for a quick sale. Please, o tire kickers as I love talking FJ's and still daily drive an '86 FJ60.

I have ownedmany FJ's but this has been my favorite by far. Definitely the best and most comfortable ride. It cruises perfect, ight and straight, nd comfortably at highway speeds! Climate shows these are becoming more popular in the high end auctions (Barrett-Jackson, ecum) as they have topped over $100K in less time than predicted (2013).Pics do not do this FJ justice......it is ashowroom piece. Click on link below for more pics but might have to double click and hit allow due to EBay's rules with links........
