1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 wite truck a
Cool BJ45 truck on Ebay…if I only had unlimited resources…lol!

This super rare Diesel pick up truck has been fully restored, and is in excellent condition. You just don’t find diesel Toyota Land Cruiser pick up trucks in this condition for this price. 


The truck is very clean and rust free. Take a look at the undercarriage and see that it is rust free and in excellent condition. The truck bed is original and also in excellent condition. The interior has all new upholstery. 


This truck will turn heads when you drive down the road. Its 6cyl diesel engine will get down the highway at a good 70mph, and still get 22mpg. With high torque, pull your trailer or boat anywhere. You can drive this on bio diesel and even used vegetable oil. Drive your truck for FREE!

The truck has been inspected by a Toyota mechanic, and he was impressed by everything. There are no problems or anything that needs to be fixed. 


These trucks are only getting rarer and harder to find. We don’t sell just any Land Cruiser, but we sell the best, that have been taken care of and are in excellent condition as this one is.

These are a great investment, because of their increasing value. Don’t miss out on this one before they aren’t available anymore.

1980 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser

1980 fj40 blue toyota Land Cruiser e

Here is a very nice 1980 Land Cruiser. It has low miles and is in excellent condition. It has factory power steering, new tires, rims, upholstery, fuel tank and fuel system related , and any and all other small parts that didn’t measure up or showed wear. All systems work including factory washers and horn. The only thing not stock is emissions. the original owner de-smogged it  20 years ago.

The truck came to me in excellent condition to begin with. Then it was disassembled, painted and gone through top to bottom to make sure all things worked as should. Hundreds of hours

went into checking , rechecking and restoring  Because it had been in storage for over twelve years, rather than just send fuel tank in for cleaning, it was replaced with new, as was the sender, pump, soft lines, etc. I chose to go with brand new Toyota rims to avoid any possible loss of integrity after 35 years of service on the originals. Tires are brand new Mastercraft , USA made by Cooper Tire Co. Because the motor had so few miles only the water jacket related  and ignition maintenance items were replaced. Thermostat and the housing, hoses and such.

It’s a beautiful truck that turns heads and gets waves everywhere you go.
