This 1975Land Cruiser FJ40 spent her life on ranch in Montana. The original owner blew the motor in 1988 and stored the truck in his shop. After several years, the ownersgrandson acquired it and sold it to a friend who in turn sold it toa restoration shopin WY in 2017. The goal was to sort the FJ40 mechanically andcosmetically while maintaining the originality and patina of this low miles survivor.
The odometer reads49,810 miles and was verified by the original owner to be the actual miles having sat for so many years. She still hasmuch of her original equipment including brake master cylinder and booster, clutch master, radiator, smog, etc.
The engine was replaced with a 2F from a 1978 FJ40 that was rebuilt from the bottom up using some components and smog equipment from the original engine.The transmission was also rebuilt.
The truck had an auxiliary fuel tank which was removed and access door was cut out and patched with new metal and paint blended. Additional body work was competed to weldtwo bolt holes in the driver's side of the tub in front of the tire. This was also blended to preserve as much original paint as possible. The previous owner had a speaker installed inthis location. All the paint was cut and buffed with a 3-stage 3M product.
The hard top and windshield frame were taken from a 1977 FJ40 which added the “wing windows” in the back to this FJ40. A new headliner and new OEM Toyota weatherstrippingwere installed.
The undercarriage was steam-cleaned and verified to be free of rust before being undercoated to prevent any rust from occurring in the future. A new exhaust system was addedand a Pro Comp 2.5" lift.
The seat frames were blasted and painted and new vinyl upholstery from Cruiser Corps was installed.
The current owner has done additional work including a completely new Fuel system, with new OEM Toyota fuel tank, fuel tank sender, fuel filter, fuel pumpand all new hard and soft lines.
The truck comes with a new freshly paintedTAILGATEand hardware that will look great when your running topless!
A new-old-stock year-correct Aisin carburetor has been installed (it started on the first attempt). All vacuum lines were removed and replaced with OEM Toyota lines and connectedaccording to the 1975 emission manual.
New 3-point front seat belts from Cruiser Corps. Replaced front door locks, ambulance door lock, fuel door lock, and ignition cylinder lock with OEM Toyota. One key now opensfront doors and fuel door as well as ignition. Separate key for ambulance door as it was from the factory.
Rebuilt/repainted air cleaner assembly including seals, clamps, screws, bolts, brackets.
The truck is in great, original condition and has been sorted out and driven often in the last year. As will all survivors you will find a few small dents, scrapes bumps and bruises here and there. These are pictured in the Photo Gallery. Theoriginal jack is included. All gauges work. Parking brake light works. Heater and rear heater works. Wipers work along with the windshield washers. The truck starts right up andidles smooth. Drum brakes work well and pull straight.
PLEASE NOTE - This FJ40 will come with BFG MT tires mounted on Factory OEM gray steel wheels with OEM hubcaps not pictured here. Pictures of the wheels and tires can befound on the photo site.
