1980 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ44 BJ46 L-PACKAGE



The BJ44 was only sold to the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) and was sporadically imported to Russia, Australia and New Zealand.

BJ44 is the first Landcruiser with a rear seat facing forward. The BJ44 is the hardtop medium wheelbase version of the BJ40 which itself is the diesel version of the FJ40. At 97”, the wheelbase is approximately 7” longer than a comparable FJ40. In total the BJ44 is approximately 14” longer than a FJ40. The BJ44 was produced from 1980 until 1982. Which makes for a very short production run for the long running 40 series. Combine this rarity with the L-Package with which this truck is equipped and includes such items as the chrome (currently white)/grille, rear bumpers and license plate light covers, extremely rare 2-tone cloth vinyl ivory interior with front buckets and center console with rear heat and FACTORY AIR CONDITIONING!!

Rare Factory Air Conditioning.

The BJ44 was recently SERVICED, new oil change using OEM oil filter and OEM fuel filter, new OEM glow plugs INSTALLED and differential fluids all checked and in very good condition.


The BJ44 runs very smooth after the service. The glow plug indicator switches ON within 15 seconds and BJ44 starts up even on a cold December morning here in NYC.

The brake system is in very good shape and the BJ44 stops on a dime!

The A/C system was diagnosed and it just needs a new compressor, and I have already located a OEM Reman unit.

The 4x4 system is fully functional-just pull the F.D (Front Drive) switch, it lights up and 4WD engages smoothly. Just tested it today 12/17/2016 in NYC's first snow storm this year.

I have already purchased a new off-white perforated headliner with thick foam backing. This will be included in the sale.

The BJ44 also was checked out at a respected auto body shop in NYC area for complete restoration estimate: The BJ44 is in good shape, with a clean undercarriage/frame. For estimate total, please call/text me.

Mechanically, the BJ44 is in excellent condition, strong engine and clutch, does not leak oil and rides/handles much better than the SWB 40 series.

This BJ44 has an extremely clean frame, axles and drivetrain but does need a new headliner and eventually the rain gutter. As far as rust, I'm unable to locate any but there might be some areas which may require work in the future. Currently all areas are sealed and there are no issues. This BJ44 handles great and drives strong.

Comes with the Clean & Lien-free New York State title.

This vehicle is sold “as is”. All required customs, EPA & DOT forms will be provided along with a bill of sale.
