Classic 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 4×4

A sweet stocky 1972 FJ40 brought to you by Sun Valley Auto Club in Hailey, ID

Classic 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 4×4

Classic Land Cruiser restored to factory specifications. No lifts or engine swap here. This FJ40 is true and correct. Toyota brand parts only used in this restoration. This FJ has great metal under the freshly painted Hudson green, an OEM Toyota color. We took a paint meter to it and found no rust and all factory sheet metal and factory welds. One of the cleanest FJ40’s we have ever come across. All the lights, bumpers, emblems, handles, hubcaps, and wheels are in great condition. The same will be said for the interior. Freshly recovered seats, clean and clear glass, clean and undamaged knobs, and nice interior paint. It does have the rear jump seats to haul some friends around too. The engine is in stock form and has plenty of pep. This is one stylish FJ that is in original condition.

 

1973 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 (Factory PTO)

Another dream FJ40 for sale on Ebay!

1973 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 Hard Top with factory PTO winch.  This vehicle is a museum-quality, rotisserie, frame-off, hand built, nut and bolt restoration.  It is exact to original manufactures specifications and appears just as it did when it rolled off the ARACO Toyota production line back in 1973.  You will not find a more original or meticulously restored FJ40.  There are well in excess of a thousand hours in this build, and probably just as many in research and parts acquisition in order to maintain integrity.  As much as the photos show, this vehicle is even more impressive in person.

This restoration is unique in that it began with what’s known as a “survivor” – an incredibly complete and unmolested specimen.  All components are original to the vehicle and meticulously refurbished. The entire vehicle was disassembled and cataloged.  All hardware and adornments were retained, cleaned, yellow zinc plated or re-chromed as per factory specification.

For new parts, every effort was made to use NOS OEM Toyota parts and rebuild kits sourced from the local Toyota dealership or from other reputable Land Cruiser Specialists.  Aftermarket parts were only used when absolutely necessary and only because the originals were no longer available.  No expense was spared and the attention to detail of this restoration is second to none.  Every decal, nut, and bolt is correct in its application.

Refurbished parts:
*   Chassis
*   Frame and respective components were media blasted and powder coated

*   All body pieces were coated with a self-etching primer and single-stage acrylic enamel paint
*   The color is the elusive “Heath Grey”, Toyota paint code T-113, and was available on FJ40s in the 1973 model year
*     The floor and underside of the tub were sprayed with a color matched, tinted raptor liner for sound dampening and durability
*     Electrical wiring harnesses were circuit-tested and re-wrapped
*      The fiberglass top was sanded down, re-coated with epoxy resin, repainted with Toyota’s “Cignus White”, and given a new headliner and visors.
Interior:
*      New, custom-sewn vinyl seat covers identical to the original in color and appearance
*      New OEM shifter boots
*      All glass is original and displays the Toyota trademark in the corners
*      Seat frames, front and rear heaters, doors, console, steering wheel, dash, AM radio, knobs, pedals (including arms and bucket), wiper mechanism and seat belts are original and re-finished

Equally impressive:
*     Extremely rare original tool bag complete with stamped Toyota tools
*     Iconic yellow bottle jack and rods
*     Factory trouble light in its original plastic case
*     Genuine owners manual.

Even the ignition key is brand new OEM Toyota and comes inside a factory key wallet where it shares space with the new front and rear door keys.  As a finishing touch, no true period restoration would be complete without a matching set of license plates of the very same vintage.  It even smells like a new car inside!  No respectable collection is complete without an FJ40 in the stable, here’s your chance. Please visit the following link to be directed to an online photo album containing supplemental images, which chronicle each stage of my process in detail.  The album is organized such that there are before and after comparative pictures, followed by a complete chronicle of the restoration, and wrapped up with additional images of the finished Cruiser.

1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40

Fashion Green/ Grey

7 Year Rotisserie Restoration

This matching numbers FJ-40 was rescued from the Nevada desert in amazingly original condition. It was complete and unmolested, right down to the original factory hose clamps. The truck was completely disassembled and underwent a restoration that was completed in September of 2013. The entire powertrain was completely rebuilt reusing the restored original components such as the alternator, carburetor and starter. The engine was bored .040″ over and received a new cam, lifters, pistons, timing components, bearings, gaskets and seals. The transmission, transfer case and axles were meticulously rebuilt, receiving new bearings and seals throughout. All of the vehicle’s components were reassembled with the original replated bolts and hardware. Genuine Toyota parts were used throughout the restoration and great care was taken to preserve or recreate the factory paint marks and part labels. The same care and attention was given to the underside of the vehicle. The frame, axle housings, all of the chassis and steering components, as well as the bumpers and wheels were powder coated in their original colors. All of the original brake and fuel hard lines were replated and reused. The body retains it all of its original sheet metal and floors. It was completely stripped to bare metal, epoxy primed and finished on a rotisserie using high quality PPG Deltron paint in the rare original Toyota Fashion Green color. All of the rubber components were replaced during reassembly and with the exception of the wing and corner windows, all new tempered glass was installed. Almost all of the original hardware, such as the bolts, nuts, hose clamps, hard lines and brackets were individually hand stripped, re-plated and reused. The original wire harness was restored using new brass terminals and new plastic connectors. The interior upholstery was faithfully reproduced and even the characteristic spot weld “dimples” were carefully preserved on the exterior of the body. We will ship all over the world.

1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 completely restored. All body parts were taken apart, sand blasted and immediately primed for better rust protection (primed, sealed and painted with high quality paint), in fact ¾ of the body is new due that the original one was not worthy to repair. The whole frame was sand blasted and immediately primed and painted with Professional black color to give it a nice finish. Undercarriage was completely black rubberized undercoated to prevent even more rust issues. Inside has tinted liner in order to give this vehicle excellent noise insulation and rust prevention.

Bolts, washers and nuts were replaced with threaded Stainless Steel, all other pieces that we did not replace with stainless steel were restored, plated or painted as needed. The chassis has a complete new Old Man Emu suspension including new shocks, leaf springs, hangers, shackles, steering stabilizer and tie rod ends.
