In the world of serious off-roading, the Toyota FJ40 ranks right up there with the Jeep CJ and Land Rover Defender for being the ultimate go-anywhere vehicle. And like its competition, its rugged, reliable, and virtually indestructible. This beautiful 1978 FJ40 Land Cruiser has been extensively renovated and needs nothing more than a little mud to start having / br / The upright, boxy shape is as much function as style, with a compact footprint to go anywhere, yet carry a lot of gear to the most hostile places on earth. If youre an off-roading enthusiast, you know how hard these Toyotas are to find in this condition. Sure, theyre out there, but a vast majority of them have been used up and left for dead somewhere in the desert, so this is a truly rare truck. Finished in familiar Toyota beige with bright white details, this FJ looks ready to tackle Death Valley. The bodywork is in outstanding condition, with sharply folded front fenders and correct rear quarters and paint thats almost too nice to go off-road. There are no signs of abuse or neglect and the workmanship is about what you would have received in 1978 if you bought it new. Rear fender flares have been added to cover the slightly oversized off-road tires, and the front bumper has been jettisoned in favor of a heavy-duty bumper and winch setup that looks like it could pull the FJ up the side of a building. Out back, its got a very cool tire rack that gives the FJ its all-business / br / The interior accommodations have also been designed for adventure, with low-maintenance surfaces like the spray-on bedliner on the floors and simple vinyl door panels that have a hardcore industrial look. Comfortable bucket seats keep you in place and theyre also comfortable enough for all-day outings. There is a padded dash, and the aftermarket steering wheel has a fat padded rim that gives you something sturdy to hang on to while youre off road. The original gauges keep an eye on the engines vitals, joined by a set of auxiliary dials underneath. The 4-speed manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case are controlled by floor shifters and clutch take-up is easy so crawling through the mud at low speeds is a snap. And its pretty civilized, with a removable hardtop, steel doors with roll-up windows, and a locking center console, not to mention the fold-out rear seats that are a big part of the Toyotas look. br / br / The 4.2 liter inline-six is believed to be the original powerplant, and offers a heavy-duty air intake system and a fresh carburetor for reliability in the rough. There are also dual Optima batteries for plenty of starting power and to drive that massive winch, and its all neatly presented as if its never been in the dirt before. Underneath, the suspension is augmented with Black Diamond shocks and a 2-inch lift all around and the brand-new exhaust system has a long-tube header and throaty muffler that gives the brawny six a fantastic voice. The axles are filled with ARB air locker differentials for the ultimate in traction, and the on-board compressor can also be used to inflate tires out in the rough. Youll be shocked by how over-built everything is, but youll definitely approve, especially if you plan on using this truck to its full potential. Simple black painted wheels with dog-dish hubcaps wear positively giant 33x10.50-15 BFGoodrich offroad / br / With rugged good looks and go-anywhere capability, its no surprise that FJ40s are highly-sought collectables that are getting more valuable by the day.
