Although this 1974 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 was in great shape when we first sourced it, it was a long way from becoming a proper B4x4 Classic. As with all of our vehicles, this rig underwent a pain-staking inspection, where the condition of every single component of the car was assessed. Our Land Cruiser restoration specialists performed maintenance on, refurbished, or replaced all necessary components. The main goal was to bring this car as close as possible to its original factory condition. After a full rebuild, this rig not only looks fantastic, but also runs strong, is extremely reliable, and is exceptionally mechanically well sorted and tuned.
Work includes a bare-metal repaint in the original color and total refurbishment of the interior. This amazing rig features a full rebuild of the original 3.9-liter F.5 engine, as well as a rebuilt 4-speed manual gearbox, rebuilt transfer case, new OEM carburetor, and more. New steel wheels were also added and fitted with mud terrain tires. Please contact us for a comprehensive list of all the work done to this vehicle. Invoices from the build and importation documents are included in the sale, and this FJ43 is being offered with a clean Florida title in the seller's name.
The truck was originally finished in Mustard Yellow (532), but a previous owner had repainted it red some time ago. The body was stripped of the red paint and inspected during the restoration. Panels with small blemishes were refurbished and damaged panels were replaced. The floor and bed panels were coated with an anti-corrosion liner before the entire body was repainted in the factory yellow. The chassis and all body panels are completely rust free and in mint condition. The beige soft-top has been refurbished and cleaned. New OEM 15" steel wheels are painted in black and fitted with new Milestar Patagonia M/T tires.
The cabin was refurbished with new gray upholstery on the seats and door panels, and a bluetooth enabled Pioneer head unit was installed. The original steering wheel remains in place, and the horn, switchgear, lights, and gauges all work smooth and properly. A new OEM 4-speed shift knob and shift instruction plate were fitted to the shifter and dash, though the original 3-speed plate will be included in the sale. Folding rear bench seats were also reupholstered, and new custom black rubber floor mats were added.
The 3.9-liter F.5 inline-six was introduced in 1973 and was only fitted on the 1973 and 1974 models. This rare and sought-after "best of both words" engine featured the updated oil delivery system that was fitted to the later 2F engines, as well as other upgrades. This engine has been rebuilt and includes a new OEM fuel pump, carburetor, fuel filters, and oil filters. The miles listed reflect the miles added to the vehicle after the engine restoration was completed. A 4-speed manual gearbox was rebuilt and installed, and an electronic ignition system was added for improved reliability. The rebuilt transfer case with locking hubs functions properly. All fluids were flushed and replaced during the rebuild, and the truck truck was fitted with a brand new battery. Another oil & filter change has been performed recently, as it is advisable to change fluids soon after a full engine rebuild.
