For Sale: 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ in Long Island, New York

Vehicle Description

Located in Phoenix It is bitter sweet, but after 2 years of restoration, my FJ40 is finally up for sale OR trade for land, other classic car, or class c RV of equal value. This is one of those cars you dream about owning, the memories you can make in this are endless. Back roads, fire roads, Moab with the family, Sedona trails, drive to california and ride along the coast. My wife and I managed to make some of those memories already and now feel comfortable letting it go to it's next family. We poured our blood sweat and tears into this car and made it was it is today. I've owned and restored several classic cars, it's my passion. This is what you would call a resto-mod. I was inspired by what I saw the company Fj company & Icon 4x4 doing with these vintage 4x4s. Bigger engines, more capable on the highway: adventure ready, while maintaining a stock look. This 1976 FJ40 Land Cruiser has been restored down to each nut and bolt. It was taken apart panel by panel. Stripped to bare metal. Rust was completely dealt with. New panels welded into place. Prepped and epoxy primed. Only the finest materials available were used. I followed Southern Polyurethane's Painting procedure (many pebble beach cars follow this process). It was a lengthy process, but my determination was led by the vision of the next owner enjoying it for years to come, and hopefully preserving a piece of history for future generations. Following the epoxy primer, each part was blocked by hand, guide coat was used to find low spots. The metal was worked until body panels were close to straight, much better than factory. Gaps, details, and alignment was important to me and constantly at the front of my mind. Skim coats of evercoat rage body filler (Highly reviewed, very expensive compared to other brands) were put across each body panel, one piece at a time, block sanded to perfection, then the use of high build primer came into play to hopefully perfect each panel. Again each panel, one by one, was block sanded to prep for epoxy sealer. After sealing the body work, 3 coats of heath grey base coat were used, and 6 coats of universal clear. Color matched raptor liner was sprayed inside the cab to allow easy washing out. You can hose it out if you choose to. It's ready for an adventure. This FJ40 features a 5.7L fuel injected GM truck motor mated with a downey offraod 4 speed transmission (motor has only 16,000 miles on it. Parts are cheap, readily available in all cities, no waiting. It's currently geared very low for slowly crawling up technical areas offroad on it's 35 tires. An upgraded 4 row aluminum radiator is there for when you're offroad for hours, running the brand new gen iv air conditioning system. Steering components have all been raised for additional ground clearance, an overall cleaner look, and have been linked to an FJ60 power steering conversion. The upgraded dana 60 axles have had a spring over axle conversion with a heavy duty wrap bar on the rear axle (limited slip diff) to eliminate any axle wrap. Everything is very tight, and feels factory while providing an authentic upgraded land cruiser off road experience. Rancho 9000 adjustable gas shocks allow you to decide if you want a tight setup for on road, and then you can quickly hop out and loosen things up for more flex offroad. This is a very capable cruiser, but maintains a beautiful original look with it's oem chrome bezel, new OEM turn signals, brake lights, license plate lights, oem roll bar, side markers, oem dash setup, telescoping mirrors, bumperettes, etc... I tried to ensure that I researched every part before buying to get the best that money could buy. From the 3m seam sealer, wiring insulation from mercedes benz from germany, custom slidable side windows, hand stitched crafted black vinyl interior, lockable custom center console, upgraded 23 gallon gas tank for long trips, every angle bolt and gasket were considered. The frame was stripped down, and covered in a well rated durable chasis saver, and then 3 coats of black urethan base coat and 3 coats of clear coat for optimal uv and rock chip protection. The body was coated with black raptor liner underneath tub and fenders. New fluids, filters, etc... Ready for adventure. Feel free to give me a call if you have ANY questions.
