1973 Toyota FJ Cruiser FJ40

If you've been paying attention, ou'll notice that we're not the only ones selling Toyota FJ40 Land Cruisers. Trucks like this 1973 FJ40 are the hottest things on four wheels right now and if this one looks affordable, hat's only for the moment. With the right look, he right colors, nd the gear, t's still a lot of fun off road, ut it can also be a wise investment.Apparently the best shape for a 4x4 is a two-box design with sharp corners, nd Toyota has been doing it successfully for decades. You'll note that this one wears proper khaki paint for the real adventurer look and the flat bodywork is remarkably free of damage. Clearly this one hasn't been crawling through the jungles of Burma, ut rather lived an easy life on pavement somewhere in the warm southern US. Typical Toyota build quality means these trucks are virtually indestructible, ut just for good measure someone spent quite a bit of time and effort, ot to mention money, etting it back into shape. There's an appropriate shine that's not so glaringly perfect that it looks domesticated, nd the simple bumpers, istinctive white-framed grille, nd rubber fender flares all reinforce the ready-for-anything vibe. The rubber weather-stripping is new throughout, o it seals up well and it's hard to beat the look of something that treasures function over form like this FJ.Remarkably, he interior of this FJ is mostly original, tarting with the supportive front bucket seats. Sure, verything is pretty basic inside, ut the FJ does it with style, nd compared to the slippery chairs in a lot of vintage trucks, hese actually help hold you in place while you're playing in the dirt. The rear bench is newer and there's plenty of room for four inside, lus their gear in the cargo bay. No frills is taken to a whole new level with the FJ, hich offers painted floors, teel door panels with exposed hardware, nd a contrasting white roll bar that you'll hopefully never need. The cleverly designed dash allows easy construction of both right-hand and left-hand drive trucks, ith the white instrument panel holding a speedometer and auxiliary gauges that are easy to read. Controls are easy to decipher and everything works as you'd expect from a Toyota. The 3.8-liter inline-six has served on at least six continents over the past 50 years and remains one of the most reliable and sturdy machines yet conceived by man. It's also pleasingly torquey and smooth, o you won't regret sitting behind the wheel for a few hours. The point of the FJ isn't all-out speed, o it's fairly stock under the hood, ith an aftermarket air cleaner and brightly colored plug wires, ut nothing that will interfere with its reputation. You'll note there's a modern dual reservoir master cylinder, hich powers a set of front disc brakes, worthwhile safety upgrade. A 3-speed manual transmission, -speed transfer case, nd heavy-duty axles provide the go-anywhere part of the FJ's resume, nd the suspension, hile capable, s civilized enough to use every day on your commute. There's a recent exhaust that has the right sound and it's fitted with big 235/75/15 BFG All-Terrain radials on the original painted steel wheels.Make no mistake, Js are more than just Japanese Jeeps, nd the market is speaking.
