There is a reason why the Land Cruiser is Toyota's longest running series. It has proven itself all over the world in the most extreme climates and situations as the go to vehicle for all things versatile. From adventure to taxi cabs this iconic 4WD has exceeded the expectations of most and has one of the largest followings of any thing on the road today. Although the Land Cruiser was developed to take on the Bantam Jeep during WWII and was directly influenced by this it took on a form and functionality all its own just after the war. The FJ40 began production began in 1960 and went through 1984. Basically a one design vehicle for all those years, with mechanical and minor cosmetic changes to keep up with the changing times.
The 1976 FJ 40 Toyota Land Cruiser offered here is sharply finished off in a very desirable color, Sky Blue. This FJ remains very original under the hood that houses its bullet-proof inline 6 cylinder engine. Highlights include: 4 Speed manual transmission with floor mount shifter, Toyotas legendary 4 wheel drive system, power brakes, added vintage air conditioning, full safari rack, 4 Maxtel spotlights, Factory Style wheels and hubcaps, 5 brand new tires, rear jump seats, integrated roll bar and removable roof. The interior has been addressed with newer seat covers, new dash pad, newer carpet, and still retains its original factory gauges with all knobs complete. The vehicle starts easily and drives out great with plenty of power, proper shifting, and stops straight and true.
Toyota FJ 40's continue to dominate the classic SUV market. Their classic look, reliability and overall ruggedness keep these vehicles on the short list of many. One in this condition and this price point will not last long on our floor.
