History

The FJ40 model made legends out of the FJ and the F engine. Its first production year was 1960, and it debuted with a short wheelbase version. The FJ40 was produced until 1984. The FJ40 came with either a soft top or a hard top. Though relatively sparse on creature comforts, the FJ40 nonetheless captured the attention of buyers across the world due to its reliability, sturdiness, and off-roading ability.

Used from 1955-1974, the Type F engine made the FJ famous: not the most efficient but virtually impossible to break! It was (and is) commonly known to run 500,000-600,000 miles without a problem. It was constructed as a 3.9 liter naturally aspirated, in-line six-cylinder engine. The F series of engines were deliberately engineered to be similar to GMC L6 OHV 235 engines but improved upon its inspiration to suit the FJ's needs.
