Description:

1966 Toyota Land Cruiser

Odometer reads 46,750 but there's no way that I have to know the actual milage. The odometer does work as does the speedometer.
Has newer 4" suspension, newer model hard top (still removable of course). Floor shift conversion 3speed in excellent used condition and new clutch. I bought the cruiser pretty much as it is over ten years ago. It had the top, the roll bar, the shifter, and the HF 9000 lb. winch.
Original 'F' engine block with 1973 head with two barrel Aisin carb. Newer valve job. All new brake shoes and master cylinder. Truck runs great with compression at or above 160 psi, in all cylinders. Starts easily hot or cold, never overheats, never skips a beat.
There is a Lockright locker (commonly known as an "Aussie locker") installed in the rear differential. It works well and makes the characteristic and normal intermittent noises that all of them do but it gives increased traction when needed. The original differential parts are included.
Body and undercarriage in great shape with almost no rusting. There are small bubbles at the left rear corner (shown) that are the only sign of any issue - hasn't grown in all the time I've had the truck. The undercarriage shows only light 'surface' rusting as shown. This is a tight and reliable FJ40. A simple and capable 50 year old truck.
The paint is best called a "15 Feet" paintjob. There are flaws, touchups, faded areas, and assorted glitches but the overall appearance looks good despite all that.
The interior is very nice overall. It had new OEM seat covers and not long after that a trouble light stayed too long on the driver side and made the odd melt shown in a photo. It doesn't effect anything except the look.No floorboard rust through. The front floor was treated to a product called "Hippoliner" that could be color matched and added traction and good looks.Sharp-eyed viewers may notice that the hood hold-downs have changed from silver to red colored. One of the aftermarket silver ones broke so I put the OEM red ones back .
To be sold as-is and without warranty. What you see is what you'll get.
Initial deposit will be non-refundable and buyer will be responsible for arrangement of any shipment required. This Land cruiser is titled in Washington state and title is unencumbered.
I have a Flickr folder with more photos that I can email. Dunno why it can't be linked within this listing.
