1977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 Diesel Restored FJ40 Fj451977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 in Toyota Dune Beige #416
Completeprofessional, frame-off, nut and bolt, bare metal restoration completed in May 2017.1977 BJ40 Toyota Landcruiser with only 1 previous owner and 29,000 km (documentation included). The restoration took three months to complete, with over 1500 man hours. The vehicle was taken down to the frame and stripped to bare metal. Absolutely no patching or bondo. From there it received a top-notch restoration. Every piece of this BJ40 has been touched, and replaced with mostly Toyota OEM and NOS parts. All nuts and bolt have been replaced with stainless steel. All efforts were made to make this Land Cruiser original, from the Factory correct Toyota Dune Beige Paint Code 416, to the color and stitching of the seats, to the wheels. The Firestone tires still have the stickers and knobs on them. Custom molded floor mats were made for both the front and rear of the Land Cruiser. This is a stunning example of a professional, no expense spared, proper restoration. Some restoration photos included below.
Not only is this the diesel version of the FJ40, which Toyota never imported into the US, it will average at about 25-27mpg. Easy cruising speed of 65mph. These bullet proof engines will last forever and this is arguably the greatest 4x4 offroad vehicle ever created. There are only a handful of BJ40s in this frame-off restored condition here in the states, especially left hand-drive. As you can see in the pictures, this BJ40 looks like it just rolled off the factory floor. Having passed all DOT and US Customs inspections, this Land Cruiser is fully legal to drive in the US and comes with a Clean Delaware title and registration ready to be registered in your state. The vehicle is located about 45 minutes from Philadelphia in Hockessin, Delaware and I encourage interested buyers to come see and drive the cruiser. Feel free to call 302-565-4702 with questions or to set up an appointment. I can facilitate with shipping world-wide.
