Description:

1975 Toyota Land Cruiser

Up for sale is our beloved 1975 FJ40 Land Cruiser. It has an original Toyota Inline 6 engine professionally replaced in 2004 by previous owner. There is a 4 speed manual transmission on the floor. It has a removeable Hard Top and comes with a Bikini Soft Top. Four wheel Willwood disc brakes were added in 2013. Very strong engine, clutch, transmission and four wheel drive system!
Everything works; lights, heater, wipers, gauges, speedometer, etc. Unknown mileage since the previous owner did not have a working odometer. I fixed the odometer when I got it and have only put on 5,500 miles in nine years. This truck has only been used for local driving and plowing the road and sites of a small two acre RV Park. It has not been off-road or abused on the trail. It will do 60 MPH on the highway but the traditional loose steering requires you to be attentive while you drive.

Painted inside and out with Toyota's "Sun Fusion" (5A3 color). This is one of the FJ Cruiser colors from 2006 to 2010. The small parts are painted Toyota Gray Metallic.

Seven foot Meyers E47 hydraulic Snow Plow with Slick Stick controls located on the manual transmission for easy plowing while driving. It is really amazing how well this vehicle plows snow! With the short wheelbase, great visibility and torquey engine, it is easy to maneuver around and between obstacles. Two new hydraulic ram arms installed in 2016 for moving the plow left and right. New plow pump in 2017 which powers all of the up and down, left and right hydraulics. Plow blade is steel and was repainted in the fall of 2019.

Maybe the best news; the snow plow is removeable and returns the look of the truck to 98% original. Just two 2 inch square holes in the front bumper, two square 2 inch mounts behind the bumper, two vertical plates on the frame below each passenger for the long snow plow braces to mount. This is a very sturdy design for plowing and all professionally done! There is NO damage to this vehicle from plowing. It has all been built correctly and is well thought out.
Pioneer
DEH-X6800BT AM/FM/CD/USB with two pioneer speakers has been installed. There are two concealed speaker wires already installed going from the CD player to the underneath side of the roll bar.

Exterior is 80% good with a few scratches, rust spots and imperfections here and there (rocker panels & above rear bumper / below ambulance doors). I would say this is LESS than a "20 foot paint job” and body work. It looks very good and I get lots of compliments each month. The rear ambulance doors work perfectly but the hinges cause the doors to look slightly off when the doors are shut. Body has been patched up and does have body filler. Interior is 80% with a couple of rust spots starting to come through on the interior wheel well behind the front seats. The driver's seat is old and worn and is the worst thing about the interior.
Since I am very tall, the only modification I have done is the Clutch, Brake and Gas pedals have all been professionally Lowered 3 1/2 inches. They are all in the stock location but just 5 1/2 inches off the floor. The driver's seat has also been Raised 2 1/2 inches by adding metal and wood blocks bolted to the floor. These can be removed if desired. The truck can still be driven by anyone of any size I just needed a little more leg room. As we all know, there is plenty of head room!
There are no rear seats! I have a spare tire carrier also painted Sun Fusion but it is not mounted on the truck. There is a second set of Wheels with Studded Snow Tires and deep tread that come with the truck. Just switch them out when it is legal to do so. Summer wheels and tires are Kumho Venture MT 31X11.50R15LT and the Winter tires have excellent tread and are Wildcat EXT 31X10.50R15LT.

Buyer pays all shipping charges. Bid with confidence. Feel free to ask me any questions or request specific pictures. More Interior Photos on the way.

Also, there are Black aluminum Serengeti Door panels on each of the passenger doors. Installed in 2019 is a new Odyssey Extreme 34-1500 Battery. This has 850 CCA and 1500 Cranking Amps for 5 seconds!
There is a full head-liner inside the roof installed in 2011. Sorry, I failed to mention the AMP gauge does not work.
The interior floor photo has small black circles all over it. This is from the black nubs on the thick rubber mat that fits over the entire bed of the Land Cruiser to protect it. The passenger seat is just fine and just a little bit faded.
At your expense, I would be happy to have a mechanic of your choice check the vehicle's mechanical function. I live in the 98826 area code.Olsen Automotive - (509) 548-7704, 11003 US Highway 2Icicle Valley Automotive - (509) 548-7676, 9892 East Leavenworth Rd.

I live in Leavenworth, a small resort town in the Washington mountains. This is my daily driver in which I drive just a few miles each day. This FJ40 is ready to go for work or play; snowplowing, construction, hunting, camping and family fun.
