This 1961 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser comes from one of the first
years of the now-legendary 4x4 line. So when you have a true
classic like this, it's terrific to see one with the right
investments that show off the vintage style... and at the same
time, this also never loses the ruggedness that made these iconic
in the first place.
Since this represents the early years of the FJ40, you want it to
look stock while being capable. That's why you have modern off-road
tires without lifting the stance to the sky. And the red is a more
modern application that looks vivid without being too flashy. Plus,
the white top and grille add an almost two-tone look. Also, take
some time to look over all the details. The full-size spare on a
swing away mount, steel bumpers, canvas-covered door frames, and
locking anchors for both the hood and fold-down windshield - it's
all part of a complete, classic, and rugged package. Everything
really looks correct, right down to the badging.
The robust interior is part of the FJ's bulletproof attitude, and
this one remains complete, right down to the 4x4 shifting
instructions affixed to the glove box lid. Newer seats and floor
liner keep this one feeling especially fresh. In the rear you have
the hallmark side-mounted jump seats and integrated roll bar. Plus,
the flat floor will be great for loading gear. You'll grab the
thin, grippy steering wheel with the correct Toyota center cap in
your left hand, and the tall gearstick with your right one - and
that's when you'll know what an old-school 4x4 really feels
The engine bay shows even more investments in quality. This fresh
and tidy presentation means you can proudly take this one to a car
show. Of course, Toyota's trusty and torquey 3.9-liter inline-six
is the backbone of the Land Cruiser's tough-as-nails reputation. So
if all you do is show off this FJ, then you're missing out on a
whole lot of fun. After all, it fires up quickly and the four-speed
manual transmission gives you full control. Plus, the 4x4 two-speed
transfer case and Cooper Discoverer tires are there to make sure
your fun starts when the road ends.
If you love pure vintage style, you know this Land Cruiser really
hits the mark. So don't let this FJ40 slip away, call today!
