1974 Toyota Land Cruiser Wagon

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​1974 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55 Factory Restored

Up for auction is an extremely rare, original example of the legendary Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55 4x4 Wagon. Fully restored to factory specifications, this cruiser is equipped with a fully rebuilt F155 engine mated to a three speed floor shift transmission with the ultra rare Power Take Off front winch that works flawlessly.
The interior has been fully restored with factory spec headliner, seats, and floor mats. The dash has all period correct switches as well as the original AM radio and single Japanese speaker mounted on the passenger firewall. All electronics and wiring is in excellent working condition as well as all signals and lights.
The suspension has been upgraded with a 1.5 inch lift by HFS shackles and Monroe HD shocks were used all around to give this FJ55 a very firm, comfortable ride on and off road. New steering components, all new heavy duty tie rod ends, and Old Man Emu steering stabilizer on the front end make this a dream to drive on the highway or backroad. The 33x10.50R15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains are brand new and look exceptional with the factory wheels and hubcaps. Braking system has been totally restored with all new wheel cylinders and rebuilt original dual master cylinder.
This is a three year restoration, using the best parts available and patience to wait for no longer available parts. This FJ55 lived it's entire life in Southeast Oklahoma and North Texas so there was no rust issues on the original frame, and only minor rust on one quarter panel in the rear. The cruiser runs and drives excellent, and almost every mechanical part has been replaced or reconditioned. The heater works great and the windows and doors lock and secure the vehicle. The rear power window works perfect and can be used by switch on the front dash or key in the rear. This is a 1974, so there was no power steering, disc brakes, or AC (only dealer installed). This cruiser was dealer installed back in '74 with a York compressor and under dash unit. I have left the compressor and front plumbing for AC, and will include a Vintage Air under dash evaporator with the sale. New weatherstripping was sourced for all windows, doors, and glass.
I restored this FJ55 to be able to drive daily, while keeping it a true stock example of an early Land Cruiser. I have had many FJ40s, but the FJ55 has been my favorite to drive and restore. It rides much better in my opinion than 40s and even 60s. The bench seats are very comfortable and you have tons of room in the back for supplies or camping when you fold the rear bench down. I want this to be enjoyed in the mountains or by the lake, or cruising in the suburbs with friends and family. It is the ultimate SUV that I am sure will last for many, many more years. I have added hundreds of photos that you can scroll through above this description. Please message me for any questions and happy bidding.
