Here is a very sweet 1973 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser in green with frame off restoration courtesy of Earth Motorcars
This Land Cruiser is currently available for sale on eBay
This exceptional FRAME OFF, ENGINE OUT RESTORATION was completed by a FJ expert. Set up for on/off road with a GM V8 350 ENGINE, power steering and upgraded disc brakes. If your looking for a true (fully restored) high end custom built Toyota FJ 40 Land Cruiser, you just found it! Everything in it and on it was replaced new or rebuilt like new. It has been driven very rarely.
This is one of the most Stunning FJ’s you will ever see. The Body is super straight. The Paint color is mint green base coat /clear coat paint that was color sanded and buffed (over 80 hours) to a wet glass shine finish. (Show quality paint work) FJ was painted on the outside as well as the inside and done correct. All fenders – hood – tailgate – doors removed from body when painted, then re-assembled back on body with stainless and hardware. The body was removed from the frame when painted on a rotisserie so every inch of the body was painted correct. (Not a road tar covered bottom hiding rust and ugly road grime that you will find on most of them). A fresh built, nice running V8 351 motor was installed under the hood and this FJ has more power and performance than most could ever use. After the frame was powder coated, it was undercoated to enjoy on any trail without worrying about damaging the under carriage this was done before the motor – trans – 4X4 transfer case – stainless brake lines and so on were re-installed back into the frame.
You can eat off the engine of this FJ40, we know this because we just completed it! This FJ is a show winner if you like to look at them or an incredible off road suv if you want to enjoy it. Motor fitted with a – 4 bbl carb(just rebuilt) – custom built headers powder coated silver- 3 inch exhaust and a correct sounding Flow Master muffler growl so it’s fun to ride in going down the road. Off Road and a WARN winch are installed as well!
It has a 2 inch suspension lift along 33 inch tires so its not to high to get in and drives awesome and looks tough! It runs tight and straight down the road with no issues. The front bumper is heavy duty and comes equipped with a 8000 pound winch. I just put in a brand new steering box along with all new shocks. The engine was completely rebuilt and runs fantastic. This is a get in and drive truck! The frame is in perfect shape, rust free. All the mechanicals have been redone. The 4-speed transmission shifts into gear perfectly with a strong clutch. The brakes are perfect and stop as they should!
