1978 Toyota Land Cruiser 2d

I am selling this car for my friend who bought it two years ago. It has barely been driven, never been off roaded and never even had the top off. I have a folder two inches thick for every thing that has been done to this FJ since 2005.

Under the hood- The original, numbers matching, 2F inline six cylinder engine was completely rebuilt by a highly respected builder using top quality components including factory intake and exhaust valves, dome pistons etc. The Block was bored .30 over and the heads milled to perfection then balanced and blue printed. The valve cover, intake manifold, and thermostat housing were all media blasted then painted with hi- temp aluminum paint for great looks and a durable finish. A Man-A-Fre hi performance kit was added, including ceramic coated two piece headers, complete custom 2.5 inch exhaust with a flow master muffler (routed correctly above the skid plate), a 38 mm Weber carburetor, D.U.I. HEI distributor/ coil, and top of the line spark plugs and wires. Finished with all new hoses, water pump, alternator, voltage regulator, fuel pump, heavy duty 3 row aluminum radiator, powerful Hella horns, upgraded wiring, tachometer mounted on the steering column, and much more. The motor has about 1500 miles on it since the rebuild, proper break in procedures have been followed.

Steering- Heavy duty and very tight factory Toyota power steering box with a Saginaw pump and the proper sized billet pulley. A heavy duty, factory style steering dampener was used in conjunction with a shackle reversal kit. This provides a safer, more controlled, comfortable driving experience.

Axles/suspension/ tires - Factory axles with 4:10 gear ratio, and disc brake front end. New Warn hubs, new calipers, braided stainless steel brake lines, and brake pads. Outer bearings checked and repacked with synthetic grease. Man-a-fre soft ride 2.5 inch lift springs, with graphite impregnated polyurethane bushings, long travel shocks and greaseable anti-inversion shackles. (5) 33x10.5x15 B.F. Goodrich KM2 (mud terrain) tires mounted on the late model (1983) factory steel wheels that have been sand blasted and painted to match the top and bezel.

Transmission and transfer case- The Factory 4speed transmission and transfer case are in excellent condition, it shifts with ease and with no slop. All of the fluids in the cases and axles have been replaced with synthetic blend fluids.

Body- Excellent rust free body that has been repainted in single stage acrylic (better than original) in the factory medium blue color (code 857). The paint on the inside and floorboards of this Land Cruiser are in excellent condition and done with the same high quality as the exterior (it is VERY uncommon to have an original tub in this condition). The undercarriage is coated with rust prohibiting paint and 3M undercoating. The factory seat frames and the factory roll bar were professionally painted in gloss black.
