1980 Toyota FJ40
Created as a two door SUV to compete with Jeep, the Toyota FJ40 has proved to be one of those special classics that have a loyal following. They were first created in 1960 and had a long life extending into the 2000s with the FJ Cruiser. Of the years the most popular tend to be late 70s and early 80s FJs because they combined all the features everyone loved. For instance, like in this car, they created ambulance style doors in the rear eliminating the need to swing out the rear wheel just to get access to the interior. Small features like that along with some performance upgrades make these the ones to have. The 1980 FJ40 you see here is a nice looking classic that drives very well. It underwent a body on restoration and looks really nice rolling down the road. It is done in the Blue and White two tone that always tends to be a popular color combo. All of the trim is in good condition and all in place. With 11 windows these cars had tons of glass all of which is in good shape on this car except for a rock chip on the front windshield. The only obvious aftermarket component on this car other than the Rancho shocks is the wheels which are now polished out and wrapped with all terrain BFGoodrich tires.
Another feature people like about this year include the larger 2-F 6 cylinder motor found under the hood. The engine has been gone through on this FJ and it starts up smoothly. It is very reliable and we cannot stress how nicely this thing really drives. The motor is paired with a 4 speed transmission that shifts well. This year also featured the front disc brakes and 3:60 gear ratio which is preferred.
The interior of the car is Black with matching Blue paint. It features the original style dual bucket seats up front with the inner facing buckets in back. All of the instrumentation on the dash is working properly and has the original look. The odometer shows 49,380 and it even still has the gear shifting information on the glove box. Under the dash is the box style AC/Heat system which is working properly.
This is a really cool classic that will bring you tons of enjoyment. They aren't making anymore so they are just getting more rare as time goes on!
