For Sale: 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

A terrific restoration of this 1981 Toyota FJ40 not only means a sharp-looking Land Cruiser, but also features you don't find in many others - like power windows and air conditioning. It makes for an iconic 4x4 that that loves to be far more useful than just classic fun.

This Land Cruiser underwent a restoration to make it crisp, fresh, and upgraded. The best place you see that is with the paint. The blue has a great shine that looks great in the sunlight - exactly what you want on an outdoor-ready Land Cruiser. Plus, the white roof, grille, and wheels give this a hint of cool two-tone flair. It's all part of a comprehensive restoration that happened when this FJ40 was in Colombia (it was imported in 2019.) It's where your money goes further and you can get a six-figure level of work for half the price. That's why you have well-fitting panels, clean glass, and an overall quality impression. There are even nice details, like the newer MPR hardtop package and the bumper guards with classic Toyota logos at the center. While this looks great, it's also built to be a true ready-for-anything FJ40. The tow hooks up front, tow hitch in the rear, rigid steel main body, and full-sized spare tire in a swing-away mount are all part of what gives this icon its go-anywhere reputation.

The interior has a clean and fresh feeling that reminds you the restoration here was full and comprehensive. It's the ideal mix of clean and useful. For example, the flooring is durable rubber, but it has the soft feeling of premium. The seating is the classic three across up front and facing jump seats in the rear, but the new upholstery feels quite inviting. You can still remove the roof if you want to, but the way the fresh rubber feels around the doors and seals, it's likely they haven't since restoration. This has the best upgrades like power windows, an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And while upgraded you'll love the classic grip of the three-spoke steering wheel, and the speedometer is still kilometers to remind you of this one's full adventurer history.

One look under the hood, and you can tell the full restoration didn't skip the engine bay. After all, no 4x4 looks this clean without serious time and attention. This is a later 2F motor, which 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 has the strong-running nature to remind you why. When you reach beyond the pavement, you'll be quite happy this has a two-speed transfer case, beefy axles, and Pirelli Scorpion Mud tires. Plus, the control of the four-speed manual transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs are great on or off-road.

This is the nicely restored FJ40 that enhances what you love best about these classic 4x4 and adds some new comforts, too. So don't miss this deal, call today!
