1982 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser
Bringing the arguably best package together, this 1982 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser built with all possible options. Finished in Freeborn Red over Dark Charcoal vinyl interior, this fully restored example is in remarkable condition throughout. Under the hood lies its original 2F-coded 4.2L Inline 6 cylinder engine making 135 factory-rated horsepower & 210 lb. ft. of torque connected to the fully synchromesh 4-speed manual transmission and 3.70:1 rear axle. Options on this unit are plenty starting with the always favored power steering, air conditioning, power front disc brakes, rear mounted spare, full interior roll bar, factory locking front hubs, Warn M8000 electric winch, dual outside mirrors, front bumper hooks, KC fog lamps, locking gas door, rear jump seats with seatbelts, heater/defrost, chromed rear bumpers, center console, and updated Sony AM/FM/CD/Bluetooth audio system with door mounted Polk Audio speakers!
Further upgrades, largely acquired from Cool Cruiser of Texas, include their HFS Designer Lift Kit that provides 2.5” lift springs & barbell lift shackles, Hell For Stout Explorer shocks & front steering stabilizer now allowing a larger BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A white letter tires measuring 33_10.50RT15LT to fit comfortably inside those wheel wells! The restoration on this FJ40 was completed approximately 10 years ago and used rather sparingly ever since. With all new body bushing, engine & transmission mounts, new fuel lines and gas tank, fully rebuilt brake system with new hoses, rebuilt front calipers, new pads & rotors, all new stainless steel body hardware, polished stainless hood & windshield hooks, new aluminized side exit exhaust system, all new weather stripping & window seals, retains original interior floor covering, new upholstery throughout, and so much more! A remarkable example really considering the cost to restore one today! Our example doesn’t disappoint once in the driver’s seat either. With a preferred Weber carburetor conversion, it literally starts with a flick of the key! Gratified further with instant throttle response, smooth clutch engagement through all gears, super confident brakes, well balanced tires, and fully functional accessories including the a/c system, it becomes a very tough truck to criticize going down the road! Included with this unit will be the winch operating instructions, winch remote control, and clear Missouri title.
Launched in 1960 as the Land Cruiser Model 40, its worldwide success carried for many decades, but for enthusiasts in the United States, the end came about in 1984. Only mild changes to the Toyota FJ were integrated over the years, mostly consisting of better safety and convenience items. This included a roll bar being standard equipment by 1974, ambulance rear doors in 1975 along with larger more powerful 4.2L engine, front disc brakes in 1976, with 1979 options that included power steering and air conditioning, with better 3.70:1 highway axle gearing as standard.
