When you want a classic Land Cruiser that has authenticity and the
right investments, you need to check out this 1982 Toyota FJ40. New
paint, a well-done interior, and proper Toyota power are the
headlines. But nothing takes away from that authentic feeling that
makes this both a cool classic and a capable 4x4.
The tan paint is a new application from earlier this year. It has
an attractive style like a khaki safari hat, and it also has a
terrific gloss to show off the classic rugged lines of the sheet
metal. So this one really looks like it's ready for an adventure.
Plus, the white roof, grille, and wheels give this a hint of cool
two-tone flair. And as you get closer, you'll notice details like
the fresh window rubber, newer badging, and well-painted bumpers.
In fact, we have a long list of recent body upgrades/replacements
that range from big pieces like the windshield frame to little
details like the license plate holder. It's all about giving this a
stock look of true quality.
When you open the door, you'll immediately notice the upgrade to a
more modern bucket seat setup up front. They have good bolstering
and are finished in leather. So while they are not stock, anyone
who wants to actually drive a classic will really appreciate the
upgrade in comfort. The same sentiment goes for the cup holder
center console and AM/FM/CD stereo w/Bluetooth. Plus, all these
upgrades are in black, and so they go with the door cards, dash
pad, steering wheel, and rugged rubber flooring. And the fans of
true vintage Land Cruisers will be happy that this still retains
the classic facing jump seats in the rear. And because they fold up
and the rear doors swing wide, this FJ40 still knows how to carry
plenty of cargo.
You can tell they spent money under the hood, too. After all, no
4x4 looks this clean without a little help. This is a later series
FJ40, and it has the correct style 2F motor. That means a larger
4.2-liter inline-six than earlier examples. This motor is part of
the backbone of Toyota's sturdy reputation, and it was even fully
rebuilt in the 1990s. When you reach beyond the pavement, you'll be
quite happy this has a two-speed transfer case, beefy axles, and BF
Goodrich All-Terrain tires. Plus, the control of the four-speed
manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs
are great on or off-road. There are even newer Bilstein shocks
This is the nicely restored FJ40 that enhances what you love best
about these classic 4x4s. So don't miss this deal, call today!
