1972 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser - Resto- Mod
Production date: December, 1971
Color- Dune Beige, Toyota color 416, this was the original color of
the vehicle and it has been repainted to match, some of the paint
on the interior is original. There are scratches in the paint as
this vehicle was used off road.
Engine- A well-executed Chevy 350 V8 conversion done by a previous
owner. Ceramic coated block hugger headers, dual exhaust with
Flowmaster mufflers and an Edelbrock 1405 Performer carburetor.
Items replaced within the last five years include: rear main seal,
pilot bushing, Edelbrock intake manifold, Pertronix Flamethrower
distributor and coil, Edelbrock mechanical fuel pump, water pump,
CVR Protorque starter, power steering pump, 3 row radiator,
thermostat, Toyota alternator and voltage regulator.
Transmission- Four speed manual H-42 from a 1979 FJ40 or pickup.
(The original was a three-speed) Completely rebuilt with all new
Koyo bearings, new second gear, new synchros, new output shaft, new
seals, new reverse light switch, Advance Adapters cast aluminum
bell housing, new Centerforce clutch and resurfaced flywheel, new
Aisin clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, new throw out
bearing. Note: there is no skid plate.
Two Speed Transfer Case- Completely rebuilt with new Koyo bearings
and new seals, JT Outfitters Case Saver support brace
Suspension - 4-inch Superlift leaf springs with stock shackles, and
Rear Axle - Rebuilt open differential. The Eaton locker unit was
removed and the third member was rebuilt with new Toyota
components. Also replaced axle bearings, axle seals, rear brake
wheel cylinders and brake shoes, drive line parking brake was
rebuilt with new shoes.
Front Axle- is from a 1983 Land Cruiser or pickup, with disc
brakes. Replaced disc pads, Aisin brake master cylinder,
remanufactured brake booster and proportioning valve, replaced axle
bearings, seals, steering knuckle bearings, tie rod ends. GM
Saginaw power steering conversion with new remanufactured gear box,
Pro Comp steering dampener. Seller Note: I added 6 degrees of
positive caster with wedges to improve street driving
characteristics and to decrease the "wandering" that FJ40s are
known for. This did increase the pinion angle significantly and I
would suggest removing the caster wedges if you intend to off road
Interior - Front bucket seats, roll bar and rear jump seats are
from a 1974 or later FJ40. A Toyota factory roll bar was added as
the original 1972 had no roll bar, and the factory style braces are
plug welded inside the wheel wells. All seat frames and roll bar
were sandblasted and powder coated, all seats were reupholstered
with new foam inserts and marine grade vinyl. Original "manual"
steering wheel and horn button restored to like new, NOS dash pad,
all gauge's function, new floor mats, new visors and headliner,
front heater core replaced, rear heater core is disconnected and
bypassed because the core leaks, both heater fan motors function.
New 18-gallon main fuel tank. Odometer is non-functional.
Tires- BFG 33/10.5 KO's mounted NOS Toyota wheels with NOS hub
Aftermarket Con-Ferr 22-gallon reserve fuel tank with electric fuel
transfer pump that transfers fuel to the main tank, a switch on the
dash operates the transfer pump.
NOS badging and indicator lights.
Complete set of Toyota tools and canvas tool wrap in near mint

A Kenwood stereo/CD player is hidden in the glove box, with 4
Kenwood speakers, one mounted in each corner of the vehicle.
This vehicle has many features found on later model FJ40s. Over the
last 10+ years every thing mechanically, electronically has been
gone through and either rebuilt or repaired on the vehicle. This
sale includes the factory hardtop and doors a black Kayline
aftermarket full soft top with bows, full soft doors and half soft

Reese tow bar and separate front tow bumper that are included.
