From 1960 to 1984, Toyota sold the Land Cruiser J40 series as a body on frame SUV that could handle any terrain that was thrown at it. Slightly larger than the competing Jeep CJ models, the FJ40 was a utilitarian SUV that appealed to a wide audience. With a storied history of use throughout the globe, FJ40s have caught the attention of collectors over the past several years and have become highly sought after.
This 1971 FJ40 is an absolutely stunning representation of a extremely well-done nut and bolt restoration that was completed in 2017. Powered by its original 3.9L F motor tied to a 3-speed transmission, this FJ drives fantastically.

On the interior, the gray seating is impeccable and instrument cluster and gauges have been restored. Front to back, inside and out, this FJ40 looks and drives like expected when one sees the quality of the restoration. With the growing popularity of FJ Land Cruisers, now is the time to acquire a high-quality restoration like this one.
