The Toyota Land Cruiser was introduced in 1960 and production
continued through 2001. There were various styles and motors used
throughout the years depending on which market the vehicle was
intended for. In 2006 the SUV was given life again as the FJ
Cruiser which was a retrostyled SUV that takes it influence from
the Land Cruiser. These vehicles have a pretty large following with
the Toyota Land Cruiser Association still being a very active club.
The J40 models were the shorter wheel base 2 door 4x4 versions
which had a slightly larger stance than the popular Jeep CJs of the
time. The 73 FJ you see here is in great shape and is pretty much
all original. It is a 4 owner vehicle with 35,103 miles on the
odometer. It is painted Tan with a removable White top. All of the
glass is in good condition and it has the folding front windshield.
The lights are all working properly and it has an aftermarket light
bar on the front nose. Also up front is the Warn Wench which works
well. It rides on aftermarket chrome wheels with Mud Rover tires.
It has a slightly taller stance than stock with a 6 inch lift.
The drivetrain is original and features its numbers matching 3.9
straight 6 cylinder engine. It runs very well and is paired with a
3 speed manual transmission. Other nice features include the power
brakes, Vintage AC/Heat system and Rough Country shocks.
Moving onto the interior besides the Vintage AC system it is mostly
all original with all of its stock knobs, switches, gauges, etc.
Everything is working properly with no issues. One cool thing about
these vintage FJs is in addition to the front bucket seats they had
additional seats in the rear storage compartment. On each side of
the vehicle is a folding bench seat. So depending on if you want to
carry more passengers or have more storage you can drop down one or
both of the rear seats. They are all upholstered in Brown and in
This Land Cruiser is a very solid straight forward classic that
runs down the road well. These are quite collectable and definitely
a unique classic that you don't see very often.
