1979 Toyota Land Cruiser

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). The B Diesel motor is known to be a workhorse and nearlyindestructible and with a gas mileage of over 20 miles per gallon. The BJ40 is a manual 4 speed and does not have power steering. The vehicle shifts smoothly and travels straight with great power. The 4 cylinder motor is made for low end torque climbing and daily cruising of 45-50 mph. It has a pioneer stereo with CD player and new speakers.
The climate of this particular zone is warm and relatively dry, favoring the preservation of vehicles, along with the careful garage storage for so many years. 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.
It was carefully maintained, up until the day of sale by the original owner. Our professional and trusted mechanic, with years of experience with these vehicles, did a complete inspection of every element of the vehicle. The following maintenance was done in 2016:
  • Cleaned Motor and Injection system. Replaced Injection heads
  • Changed Spark Plugs
  • Changed oil and all filters
  • Revision and change of rubber seals
  • Changed primary pump on the clutch and adjusted
  • New Radiator
  • Cleaning and adjustment of brakes, replaced brake fluid
  • New Battery
  • Painted Top

Paint was re-done in 2009 in Carnival Red (T-335) on the entire vehicle, inside and out. The paint is clean and very 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 Car Show and won the "Founders Award". If you have been waiting to find that near perfectLand-cruiserthen your wait is over!
We ask for serious bidders and interest please.
