The Toyota FJ40 ranks right up there with the Jeep CJ and Land Rover Defender for being the ultimate go-anywhere vehicle. And like its competition, it''s rugged, reliable, and virtually indestructible. In the world of serious off-roading, the FJ40 Land Cruiser has created a strong cult following, and with this beautiful 1974 model, loaded with winch, full hardtop & doors , beefed suspension and cold AC (yes, this one even boasts a never-even offered in ''74 AC system) you''ll quickly see why. It needs nothing more than a little mud to start having fun. The upright, boxy shape is as much function as style, with a compact footprint to go anywhere, yet carry a lot of gear to the most hostile places on earth. If you''re an off-roading enthusiast, you know how hard these Toyotas are to find in this condition. Sure, they''re out there, but a vast majority of them have been used up and left for dead somewhere in the desert, so this is a truly rare truck. Finished in Pueblo Brown with a trademark white top, this FJ looks ready to tackle Death Valley. The bodywork is in outstanding condition, with new front fenders, correct rear quarters and excellent paint, especially when compared against the other FJ''s out there in the market to choose from. Rear fender flares have been added to cover the giant off-road tires, and the front bumper has been jettisoned in favor of a heavy-duty winch setup that looks like it could pull the FJ up the side of a building. The interior accommodations have also been designed for adventure, with low-maintenance surfaces like the Rhino Lining on the floors and matching steel door panels that have a hardcore industrial look. There is a padded dash, and the steering wheel has a leather wrap that gives you something sturdy to hang on to while you''re off road. The recently upgraded 4-speed synchronized manual transmission and 2-speed transfer case are controlled by floor shifters, and the gauges are basic, but convey all the vitals at a glance. The rear cargo area offers two jump seats and a heavy-duty roll cage, and the white ceiling and large windows make it bright and airy inside. With a heater hot enough to cook a steak, and modern A/C with custom mounting brackets and hardware recently, and painstakingly, installed, this one a pleasure to drive in any condition. Additional goodies include the winch, and an AM/FM/CD has been hidden in the glovebox to keep you company when you''re pulling your friends out of the mud. This FJ40 was completely stripped to a bare chassis and rebuilt from there. The list of new parts is extensive, and even the frame itself was treated to a durable powdercoated finish. The 3.9 liter inline-six is believed to be the original powerplant, and offers a new starter and alternator, fresh wiring, and a heavy-duty air cleaner. Underneath, there are new front disc brakes, fresh suspension components with Rancho off-road shocks, and a heavy-duty steering stabilizer. You''ll be shocked by how over-built everything is, but you''ll definitely approve, especially if you plan on using this trucklet to its full potential. Cool aluminum American Racing 6-lug alloys wear positively giant 33x12.50-15 Kumho offroad tires. With rugged good looks and go-anywhere capability, it''s no surprise that FJ40s are highly-sought collectables. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
