1981 TOYOTA FJ40
all-original purchased from the original owner in Central America. (VIN FJ40342508) only 180,000 km/120,000ml
This buggy came from the factory with power steering I have added a cold custom A/C to the equation that equals comfort in an vintage 40.
In all respects pristine with a professional frame-off restoration in Medellin 30 months ago and at most 1000 km since on brand new tires and rims matching spare all OEM correct.
Great throttle response from the torquey six and one can easy Ride on the highway all the way up and over most posted speeds if you desire with no pulling or shaking, and it stops like it has new brakes cause it does. If you want a noteworthy efficient daily driver; something you could drive to a car show on the coast or in the Rockies and win the category or a 40 you don't have to be on alert the entire time your wife and daughters want to enjoy moments that these timeless vehicles inspire.
I have enjoyed owning dozens of these cool buggies and I'm looking at four of them right now and this one is my 5 yr old girls pick. She is smart now the ride is smooth and the a/c will frost your breath. The truck can go anywhere transfer case and 4wd ready to rock.
Fly in to Houston and drive it back to your home with no worries.
The seats are brand new perfect with no rips or tears and there is no rust on the truck! It has a vintage am/fm cassette that works.
Everything inside also works fine, such as the cigarette lighter, hazard lights, windshield wipers, emergency brake, horn, all the gauges, mirrors etc. new advanced 30 days old Advanced Auto battery w warranty.
DISCOSURE: There is a small scratch on the drivers front fender, I'm leaving that to the new owner. Paint in hand but I would rather see a small scratch than a touch up if I'm buying. Small quantity of matching paint included.
I live 30 minutes from Hobby airport. If you can come check it out or have it professionally inspected this 40 deserves it
Many more pictures and a video of the 40 are handy if requested.
