1970 Toyota FJ Cruiser FJ40

You're seeing more and more Toyota FJ40s for sale, nd the reason is simple: the market is on the move! This 1970 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is way more than a Japanese Jeep, nd looks far more rough-and-ready than most with its lifted stance, wesome red paint job, nd functional, o-anywhere demeanor.Seeing an open-air FJ is not a common thing, nd when this bright red 4x4 showed up, t practically stopped traffic driving by our showroom. A lot of that is surely due to the vivid red paint, hich clings to the minimalist bodywork in all the right ways, ccentuating the blunt hood and super straight bodywork. The finish is nicer than you'd expect for something designed to get dirty and scrape through the underbrush, ut it's clear that this Toyota has led an easy life since getting a full makeover a few years ago. The blunt face has the characteristic close-set headlights and central grille opening, ainted black in this truck's case rather than the more familiar off-white, s is just about every other piece of hardware on the body. There's a big tubular front bumper with grille guard, set of tow hooks, nd stand-up parking lights, ll of which give it a very function-over-form look that's endearing. Original badges have been reinstalled and with that trick LED light bar above the windshield and the beefy spare tire mounted out back, his FJ looks ready for anything.Having served in every country on earth, he Toyota's interior is purely about ruggedness rather than high fashion, nd that's perfectly OK here. The bucket seats are actually comfortable enough for all-day slogs and there's a tubular roll bar overhead in case things take a turn for the worse. The gauges are cleverly fitted into an instrument panel that can be mounted on either side depending on where the Toyota is serving duty, nd that long shifter handle manages the 3-speed manual gear box. There are no frills here, ot even an AM radio, nd the back seat has been removed to free up some valuable cargo space, nd the floors appear to have been covered with spray-in bedliner material. And for weather protection, here is a brand new black top with crystal clear windows and removable doors for the full open-air experience.Toyota's smooth, orquey, nd eminently reliable 235 cubic inch inline-six provides the motivation and if there's a more reliable machine, t hasn't been invented yet. Designed to be easy to service and to work in the most extreme conditions, t's surely up for a Saturday afternoon crawling along your favorite trail. It's not detailed for show under the hood, ut it's clean and functional with lots of recent maintenance and all the proper hardware for going where others fear to tread. It starts easily and pulls the truck around with vigor, nd thanks to the 2-speed transfer case and lift kit on the suspension, t's perfectly happy to idle along at barely a crawl, gnoring obstacles as big as bowling balls. There's a single Flowmaster muffler that gives the six a unique sound and there are a lot of new components underneath, uggesting that it's in top condition and ready to enjoy. 15-inch steel wheels are finished in menacing satin black and wrapped with giant 35x12.50-15 BFGoodrich off-road radials that complete the butch look.If you're looking for a fun 4x4 that's not a Jeep, r are interested in an off-roader that'll hold its value, hen the Toyota FJ40 is always a smart choice.
