1979 Toyota Land Cruiser

Meet our handsome "Zafiro" which means sapphire in Spanish. This is a second series 1979 FJ43 with gas tank below and other model specific upgrades same as the 1980 and later FJs. Truck is in Colombia and will be exported in January 2016. You will see a few missing details such as emblems and new hood tie downs etc which we are completing now.
Volcan 4x4, LC is the seller and we are a $25,000 bonded Florida specialty dealer focusing on high quality LHD classic 4x4s including Land Cruisers. We have sourced, estored, mported and delivered over a dozen classic FJs including 6 FJ43s making us a leader in the FJ43 market. We were one of the first companies to import FJ43s with our first sale in early 2014. We have a team on the ground in Colombia to overhaul our trucks. We buy the best trucks in the market.
By buying direct from Volcan 4x4 you get a high quality FJ and cut out all the middlemen and dealer and auction fees. We will provide references.
We outbid another buyer to buy this very rare combination of gorgeous blue, ater series 1979 FJ43 and very good condition. We did not have repaint this truck other than touch up and change out the windshield and other items. The truck is very very clean underneath and in the wheel wells. The floors are straight and have a light texture paint.
Details about this truck and the fresh overhaul that we just performed below.

Please note that this truck has custom hinges to easily remove the front doors. They are heavy and best removed by two people. Takes 2 minutes to take them off or put back on. Need to get rear view mirrors from earlier series and bolt onto the windshield. Should be fun for running on the beach.
We believe this the best way to buy an FJ43. Volcan 4x4 is a bonded dealer and specializes in these trucks. The owner is a US citizen and personally reviews and oversees the overhaul of every truck including driving them in Tampa and reviewing them one more time with a Tampa mechanic before delivery to the client. Do not delay as we do NOT see many of these trucks in this color, odel year and condition. We sold a 1978 FJ43 in the same color last year and it was literally mobbed with people when we did the photo shoot at a marina in Tampa.
