1974 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 40
Here is a very honest solid little FJ40. Purchased in Idaho by my client in 2005 then taken immediately to TLC in Van Nuys CA to have Jonathan Ward's ICON team do full "Stage Two" mechanical inspection and refurbishment which totaled $21,411. TLC inspected and refurbished everything mechanically in need, here is a partial list of the mechanical work done: all wiring and electrics refurbished, installation of "Old Man EMU" suspension and shocks, all tie rod ends updated, R&R cylinder head resurface and overhauled, new smog legal header/manifold, oil pan gaskets and all oil hoses refreshed, ignition fully serviced and parts replaced as needed, axels spindles and wheel bearings serviced and packed, cooling system checked and refreshed hoses etc., wheel cylinders and brake linings serviced and replaced as needed, R&R clutch disc and pilot busing and rear seal, all u-joints serviced, steering arms serviced and fuel system completely refurbished, new exhaust installed.
The car remains in excellent mechanical condition today having had regular services. This FJ has had sparing street use since 2005 covering less than 5k miles. It has been garaged whilst here in the Bay Area. Paint is decent and serviceable and appears to have had only one re-spray. Interior is not fully OEM (front seats changed) but nice and sanitary. Underneath the car is excellent, no rot, no rust holes, no corrosion and very clean with only very slight surface rust in some areas. No evidence of any leakage either evidently benefit of the TLC work performed.
The truck drives great! Tight, good clutch engagement, nice non-gronchy gearbox and good power, and everything works sans a radio (note hole in dash.) Interior is very clean and nicely detailed. Top, latches, bumpers, lights, emblems wheels and tires all look very nice although tires are as replaced in 2005 and should before heavy use be refreshed. On the whole, an extremely solid, well preserved, largely OEM stock Land Cruiser 4X4 with hard top in excellent mechanical and good cosmetic condition. This is a private part consignment FJ-40 being sold "as-is" by Driveline. The truck is located here in the SF Bay Area. Inspections welcome and please call 650-261-1777 for any questions.
