For Sale: 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

A go-anywhere 1971 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser restored to a high level of authenticity is what classic off-road dreams are made of. So read all the details on this sharply-presented and iconic 4x4 before the market does another upturn on these icons.

The paint set the tone nicely for this one. It is a true classic 4x4, and it's hard to find a more timeless color combo than white with a khaki top. It basically would perfectly match an old-time explorer on his first day of the safari. And that's especially true because the white paint has a clean style like a crisply pressed button-down shirt. So you can tell this is the product of a more recent restoration. It never gets too fancy to make you stop using this as a 4x4. But it just has that kind of crisp and clean style that gets it extra attention when rolling through town on a Saturday. And the level of detail on this is all part of its authenticity. The wide bumper protects the entire front end and has utility hooks to pull friends out of the muck. There are not only latches to keep the hood secure, but also there's a set to keep the fold-down windshield fastened. And the classic set of Goodyear tires extends even to the full-size spare on the rear.

Not only does the soft top have the kind of tautness that tells you it's newer, but also when you fold it down, it reveals a fresh interior. These FJs are meant to be open to the world, and so everything is built to stay robust. The vinyl on the seats feels both fresh and nearly bulletproof. The gauges are simple, clean, and hardy. There's even a robust rubber floor so you never have to worry about throwing something in the back. And just like the exterior, there are some nice details that really set this one apart. You see it in the finish of the upholstery that has crisp pleats and detailed white stripes, and this even includes the rear jump seats. There is a purposeful mechanical feeling in everything from the action of the shifter to the grip of the steering wheel. And we especially like the full labeling of every feature. You might already know what everything does, but it's no fun when your passenger pulls the choke mistaking it for the 12-volt outlet to plug in his/her iPhone.

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. And even the details like the good hoses, orderly wires, and an Optima red top battery show an added level of care. Of course, Toyota's trusty and torque-filled 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 three-speed manual transmission gives you full control. Plus, the 4x4 two-speed transfer case is there to make sure your fun starts when the road ends.

The classic FJ40 Land Cruiser looks like you're on safari even if it's just a grocery run. So when you can pick up such a well-presented example of a vintage adventurer, you need to call today!
