Description:

1963 Toyota Land Cruiser 45 Truck

Ultra rare 1963 FJ45 Landcruiser Shortbox truck. The ultimate mountain 4x4 rat rod truck. 2 owner since new Colorado truck. Bought new in Pueblo by the technician at the dealership. Many rare parts.

Body and Paint

Painted once, very solid Cab and fenders. Bed has seen its better day but mounts are solid and completely usable. Sweet Patina. Looks awesome!


Chassis, Suspension and Brakes

Excellent solid chassis, no rust through or welds. Frame VIN matches body tag. Suspension is tight and not lifted. But rides like a 63 Toyota.

Axles have been upgrade to newer model so it had excellent brakes. Power with disc on front. Will do 60-65 comfortably, steering is excellent.


Powertrain

Factory 135 was removed and a rebuilt 145 was put in its place. Electric fuel pump added. Runs great. Toyota 4 spd trans,clutch is excellent, transfer case works as should and does not have the Toyota whine. Very reliable rig. Not going to win a drag race but will keep up with traffic and go anywhere you want. Will do 65mph, no problem, past that its reving pretty high for me to push it. No smoke or major leaks.


Interior and Misc

Interior is mostly original and in good condition. Guages work. Cool paisley headliner and gun rack, I could not pull out. Functional and solid.

Has some interesting parts like its original jack and tool kit, factory locking gas cap and 1st gen wheels and caps.

Has nice Toyo tires. Comes with a bedload full of NOS and used FJ parts

Mostly maintenance items but a rare swing out spare carrier is in the mix.


In full disclosure, it is an old truck.


Story has it about 150 real shortbox trucks came here between 1963 and 67 which would make the truck rarer than the coveted LV. This one is restorable but very usable and cool as-is. Restored ones sell for anywhere from 30-75K and climbing. Don’t miss a chance to own this rare, ready to drive FJ. Call now.
