Volcan 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 + Matching Trailer

This is awesome!!!
Here is the latest from Volcan 4×4…a restored FJ43 (3rd of 5 inbound for 2014). Truck is in route to Tampa, Florida from Colombia and for sale on Hemmings. Her name is ESTELLA and is named after a lovely family friend in Colombia.
This is an extensive frame on restoration of a strong running, late model FJ43. Truck has a hard top, a custom soft top pickup top and a “coastrunner” open sided beach soft top.
The trailer is made from a new steel FJ43 tub and is paint matched in Toyota Freeborn Red to match the tow vehicle.  Trailer has a reinforced frame and axles that match the Toyota bolt pattern.  The custom front storage box and rear tailgate
were hand made by resourceful Colombian metal workers.
We plan to offer these custom off-road trailers to FJ40 owners in the US for $6900. We can paint each trailer in any classic Toyota color as well.

1973 FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser (Frame Off Restoration – Green)

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!

1972 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser (Olive)

After saying my goodbyes to our blue 85 FJ60….I set my sites on finding a pre smog FJ40 land cruiser with an SBC Chevy conversion. After searching eBay and Craigslist…I found my next potential rig in Glide Oregon…time for a road trip! My Wife and I headed up to Oregon on 4/21/2011 to take a look at a flat olive & khaki and  1972  FJ40 Land Cruiser with a 327 SBC and TH350 trans. We left ASAP while the weather was decent since we had some snowy mountain ranges to cross that can be a mess if you get caught in a late winter store. We arrived late friday night so we booked a cheesy motel and met with the seller (Scott) on Saturday. The cruiser was very cool, seemed to run well and the seller had done some major work ( new glass, rubber,rebuilt trans, De-rusted and painted the whole rig piece by piece) but I still had some major concerns about the brakes, leaky transfer case, flaky dash wiring etc. After a little negotiation we settled on a price and I paid the man in cash. He was a little concerned about me driving the rig all the way back to California rather than using a trailer to get it home…but I brought all my tools and had my wife and our Corolla as the pit/pilot car. The good news was I made it all the way home without incident…I did encounter a bit of nasty weather over the Siskiyou mountains…the wind blew in the rubber gasket seal between the hard top and the window…so I had a little mist hitting me at 60mph…no problem…stuffed an extra shirt in the gap for the rest if the trip! Once I got here home I made a list of top priority fixes that needed to happen ASAP…these have all been completed of the coarse of the last two years by me with the exception of the disc brake conversion.

New tires,  front bumper, new trailer hitch, new side mirrors, new dash plate and gauges + new wiring harness (hated the cheap fake diamond plate setup!) , new turn signal assembly,  front disk brake conversion, new steering wheel, electric cooling fan conversion, new hi flow water pump, new radiator, new stainless radiator, overflow container, new hoses, new belts,  ARP manifold studs, new exhaust manifold gaskets,  powder coated trim and hardware, stock tire carrier mounted and new Holley carb.
