Description for Toyota Land Cruiser 1979

This FJ40 is a very original example of what left the factory in 1979.

Aside from having an absolutely rot-free Frame (the underside looks as good as the topside) this FJ sports nice paint (Originally Mustard) and all original body panels.Most of these on the road are heavy rust buckets this one has been kept nicely and garaged when not being enjoyed.

The interior is Grey Leather and the seats are in new shape, no tears what so ever the headliner is all-original and in great shape too. No cracks or waves in the dash or missing or broken features.Knobs, switches handles all there all original. A box of extra interior parts will be included. Back ambulance doors lock up tight and were serviced a few times to keep it lubed etc. The floor mat is in great shape and the original from 1979 a rare sight.Lights, Blinker etc all a go.

As for non-factory additions the original radio is long gone replaced w a modern style w/ Bluetooth, USB Iphone etc. A 4” Custom Lift Kit installed giving the truck about 3” above stock height & the perfect stance with the 35” BFG’s. Has new treads all in great shape, not sure what happened to the original wheels but very obtainable. Recent Oil Change and battery as well as alternator and water pump. The brakes system is all new and working perfectly.

This truck has had all the usual maintenance and is sporting lots of newer parts.

The truck has been in his family from new and well cared for. It has served a few of the family member has been driven to and from Utah more than a few times. There are receipts in the truck for service to many different parts of the truck. The FJ shifts perfectly and runs like a tank. There are lots of little upgrades that make this truck a daily driver.

I get lots of thumbs up around town and taken to the local cars and coffee quite often.Its garaged and pampered but now making room for a new toy.

The top has been off a few times as well as the doors – ITS READY FOR SUMMER.

See pictures for condition!
