1977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40Take the tough-as-nails Land Cruiser reputation and add diesel power, and we're surprised this 4x4 isn't forged out of granite! So you can look over all the details of this 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40, but you already know this is a terrific vintage off-roader offered for a terrific price.
One look at this 4x4 and you just want to go on an expedition. After all, the tan/beige paint looks like a safari hat. And the white roof with white grille give this a subtle two-tone. These FJ40s have a stout look with the upright steel body. But as you dig deeper into this one, you also see some useful upgrades to make it even more versatile. The updated headlights help keep the trail lit; there's are provisions for an air intake snorkel; and the deep dish 15-inch alloys allow for wider off-road tires. There's even a full-size spare on a swing-away mount. It's all part of a package that keeps the vintage style while adding extra usefulness.
Inside is the mix of the right care and some cool upgrades. For example, the front seats have been traded for more modern buckets, so you get better all-day comfort. And these are covered in cloth, which is particularly nice since these Land Cruisers have a fully removable hardtop. So you can spent the day outside and not worry about a hot seat when hopping in. Behind these are the hallmark side-mounted jump seats we all love to see in these classic 4x4s. You get the correct grippy three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that is the classic dash with the correct instruments and the four-wheel drive instruction bolted to the glovebox.
The B in the BJ40 designation means you get Toyota's 3.0-liter B-series diesel motor. Yes, that's right, this was born with the ultra-desirable and nearly indestructible power plant. Not only does this have the right look of maintenance, but also there are a few worthwhile upgrades like the aluminum radiator. 1977 is a later model from this generation, which means you also have the added control of a four-speed manual transmission. The way this full package runs and shifts smoothly really sends the message of proper care. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you can spot the two-speed transfer case and both beefy axles looking good. So the extra torque of this diesel 4x4 is absolutely ready for off-road duty. Plus, with features like power steering and modern all-terrain tires, this one has great features for the street and trail.
A diesel Land Cruiser offers true ability and true distinction. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
