1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40I have lowered the BIN and the Reserve (way-down)for a true value on this 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40.The reserve is now where the biddingfinished last week! Therefore this outstanding stock FJ40 will be going to a new home.
I am the third owner (second owner had it for just over 35 years). This FJ40 spent all but a short time in the very dry climate of westTexas andwas primarily used for lightranch and hunting duties.I have owned a total of 14 FJ40s and 2 FJ45 pickups in the last 30 years and this stock '76 is amazing. It has99% of the 'original-stuff'' still on it AND that stuff still functions! I currently have two other FJ40s and the facility-spacerequires this one to be adopted. I have a passion for these vehicles and I'm certain that the new owner will love it.I live 40 minutes northwest of Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and 90 minutes northwest of Hobby Airport in Houston, TX.I welcome you to inspect and drive this vehicle and you will agree as to the quality of this FJ40. My bet is that in another 40 years (2056), people will still be admiring this 80-year-old Land Cruiser as a true classic!
Interior:New front seats and jump seats inFJ40 stock-grey from the master craftsman at Cruiser Corps.(total of 8 pieces). At the top of the seat backs (under the new marine-naugahyde upholstery), seats do have theshafts for theheadrestsas theywere optional that year.These can be foundat SOR, Cruiser Corps or Cool Cruisers.Driver & passenger floorboards and cargo bed are in great condition (see photos). The areas that appear white is the very minor surface rust that I treated, but wanted to leave visible for the new owner to see just how great this vehicle has been cared for (and thank God for Texas weather). The drivers side floor board even has the black hardened glue that was used to adhere the rubber mat to the floor. Note; the red-colored, stock soundproofing/weatherproofing textured material that is still intact on the drivers floorboard and the transmission hump....still in great condition. All knobs and switches are present and operate:wipers slow& fast and the washer even works (plastic water reservoir is cracked, but functional).choke, hazard, cigarette lighter (even us no-smokers appreciate it still works), fan low & high, fresh air, warm air all function. Vent/heat/defrost knobs present and heater functions. Rear heater was disassembled, cleaned and it has an easy-access, quick disconnect wire to turn it on & off. It works well and will certainly warm-your-cargo.AM/FM radio has the original speaker in the glove box. Antennae is missing. All gauges operate correctly and hold steady. (Nice that this FJ40 holds engine temp on the cool side).Emergency brake holds the vehicle stationary.Horn functions with two horn assemblies on the side of the radiator shroud.Gauges, dash, heater and dome lights all function.Previous owner had wired & switched (under steering wheel) for fog light, so I left that in place.Sun visors and rear view mirror are moveable, but hold tight in place.Glove box....you can eat out of there it is so clean!Driver & passenger windows roll up and down properly.Driver, passenger, ambulance doors and fuel doorlock & unlock with TWO sets of keys.Headliner is present and in good condition with no tears.Jump seats fold down and stow up with straps.Seat belts for both front and both jump seats present and function properly.Rubber weather striping around all doors and windows are in good condition.Roll cage is present and has the four padded pieces intact.
Exterior:Turn signal/running, emergency, tail, head, brake, reverse,side marker and license lights are present and function properly.All emblems front, side and rear are present.Hood latches and windshield latches function properly.Side mirrors are tight and glass is solid.Kick vents function properly and there is NO air conditioner on this vehicle.Spare tire holder swings open and closes properly and holds stable.No cracks or dings on any of the glass.White top is in great condition with solid gutter rails.Vehicle exterior was painted several years ago (the interior was not). While it is not quite the interior stock Land Cruiser FJ40 Freeborn Red, it is a close match to it. The bright fire engine red gets a lot of attention! Thisvehicle does have a few scratches on it from it's 40 year tour-of-duty. There is a scar on the right-rear panel and a repair made on the left-rear panel tocover the hole left by a CB radio antennae. Didn't have cell phones back then so ranchers communicated w/CBs.Tires are Power King Super Traction 7.00x15LT. Nice military look! Fronts have 70% and backs 35% remaining tread. OEM 'steelie'-wheels with new hubcaps.The top, side panels,front and ambulance doors can be removed and windshield folded forward for a real convertible that can go anywhere.
Engine, Transmission, Frame, etc..:Stock 2F engine, runs very well. One pull of the choke and it starts right up!Header installed years ago, with no increase in noise.Warn locking hubs rotate smoothly.Transfer shifts into H2, H4 and L4 as it should with mild resistance, as it should.Four-speed & reverse shift smoothly through all gears.Exhaust was painted w/500 degree engine paint and is in solid condition.Clutch and brake pedals are strong. Vehicle accelerates and stops properly.Steering is straight and easy on the road. There isNO power steering.All heat shields, splash guards and skid plates are intact.Frame is solid and applied Zero Rust only to protect and prolong the condition of this well-preserved vehicle.Although the body was in superb condition, under coating was sprayed to protect and provide that clean, custom look.
I live on a 1/4 mile circle, therefore it will be easy for transport drivers to pickup the vehicle, as they have done in the past. I will assist them in any inspection and loading of the vehicle.Require an immediate payment of $1,000 (non-refundable) within 12-hours through PayPal. This procedure allows me to remove the vehicle off of the market and hold it as your potential property. The remaining balance is required to be paid by cash orcashier's checkwithin 24 hours. The vehicle will not be released until these procedures are approved/cleared/verified with my bank.I will provide a clear Texas title and Bill of Sale to the new owner.
