1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser
If you're looking for a truly authentic representation of the timeless globe-trotting 4x4, then dig into the details of this 1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. There was a complete nut-n-bolt restoration a few years ago to turn a barn find into a true time capsule. One look at this 4x4 and you just want to go on an expedition. After all, the Cygnus White has that hint of cream to look like a safari hat. And the white roof with white grille give this a subtle two-tone. It all looks terrific thanks to a frame-off restoration in 2014. It started with a barn find Land Cruiser out of Washington, and anything that needed replacement was done with Toyota OEM parts or the correct reproductions. You see this attention to detail in all the tough-as-nails features, like the steel bumpers, Warn locking hubs, tow hitch, and full-size spare mounted to the dual rear doors. So more than just look like a correct classic, this one will hold up to scrutiny by the ficklest enthusiasts. Inside is more of the time capsule feeling. Clean floors, fresh plastics, and the iconic rear jump seats are exactly what you want. The well-integrated roll bar reminds you that you can take the roof off for a true open-air 4x4 experience. Bucket seats up front mean this one will always keep you comfortable. Plus, the classic thin and grippy steering wheel with correct Toyota center cap feels great in your hands. As you gaze over the dash, everything from the speedometer and to the four-wheel-drive instructions are correct and crisp. Just like the rest of the vehicle, the engine bay has been given extra attention to take its appearance back to day one. The FJ40 Land Cruiser was such capable machine that it was in production for nearly a quarter-century, but not all were created equal. A later example like this one has some of the best driving features. For example, you get the same F-series inline-six motor that has been the backbone of Toyota toughness, but in these later Land Cruisers, it has been enlarged to 4.2-liter. And you get to take better advantage of this added power with the four-speed manual transmission. The two-speed transfer case and upgraded BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/As allow this impressive classic to still live up to its go-anywhere reputation. Plus, the front disc brakes are great for the street or the trail. The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and a ton of restoration photos. There's even an upgraded factory tool kit. So yes, this is the classic FJ that really has the details covered. So if you're looking for a true time capsule 4x4, don't let this one slip away. Call now!
