For Sale: 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1982 Toyota FJ43 Land Cruiser is all about being the 4x4 that gives you more. It's a longer wheelbase version that even comes with a special FJ-style two-behind trailer so you have plenty more cargo space. It gives you more comfort with upgrades like air conditioning. And there's more pride in ownership since you'll be showing this one off more thanks to its comprehensive restoration.

This FJ has a fresh look, and we're told it recently completed its restoration in Colombia. South America is key to this Toyota because we were never offered the longer wheelbase FJ43. So this one has a clean look done by those who know this version better. The full story we're told on this one is that it was only owned previously by two families. While that's not something that can't be verified, we can tell it has led a good life under good care just by the way this one looks. After all, you need to start with good bones to get a restoration of this caliber. So there's a good look to the steel everywhere from the bright front fenders to the rounder rear cab corners. And the classic beige paint has a clean look like your khakis on the first day of a safari. Plus, the white roof and grille make for a subtle two-tone. The beefy steel bumpers, rugged tires, and rear with both a full-size spare and jerry can remind you that even the best restorations need to remember that the FJ is a true off-roader.

The interior is both beautifully vintage and correctly upgraded. For example, you have the front bench seat that's split to give the driver a bit more bucket-like comfort. This is correct for a classic FJ, but the upholstery is clean, complete, and comfortable thanks to the fresh investment. The door panels, floor mats, and dash all have a robust style that makes them simple yet attractive. The same idea goes for the painted metal pieces. They're so glossy and clean that it reminds you they fully painted this SUV during the restoration. And when they rebuilt this Toyota, they even added cold-blowing air conditioning! The longer wheelbase is handy to give more space in the rear. That's nice when utilizing the opposing jump seats. And there's even a rubber mat on the floor so it makes it even easier to use this extra space for cargo. And whenever that's not enough, there's a color-matched trailer that adds extra space, another spare tire, and the kind of style people will be talking about for a long time to come.

Just like the rest of the vehicle, the engine bay has been given extra attention to keep this proper and tidy. The FJ40-series Land Cruiser was such a capable machine that it was in production for nearly a quarter-century, and the F-series inline-six motor has been the backbone of Toyota's toughness. So it's great to have the 4.2-liter unit, which was the largest of the series. You get to take full advantage of this motor thanks to the four-speed manual transmission The two-speed 4x4 transfer case, tall suspension, and M/T tires allow this impressive classic to still live up to its go-anywhere reputation. But as you look at the undercarriage photos, you can see a fresh style that tells you this one has spent most of its time on the pavement. That's why you also have great anytime-driving features like power steering, power brakes, and front discs.

Complete with owner's manual, the longer wheelbase FJ43 is a true legend, and this one delivers on the look and capability while also being easy to enjoy around town. It's the total package, and it's ready to turn heads. Call today!!!
