 Vehicle Description
Youre seeing more and more Toyota FJ40s for sale, and the reason is simple: the market is on the move! This 1970 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is way more than a Japanese Jeep, and looks far more rough-and-ready than most with its lifted stance, awesome red paint job, and functional, go-anywhere demeanor.

Seeing an open-air FJ is not a common thing, and when this bright red 4x4 showed up, it practically stopped traffic driving by our showroom. A lot of that is surely due to the vivid red paint, which clings to the minimalist bodywork in all the right ways, accentuating the blunt hood and super straight bodywork. The finish is nicer than youd expect for something designed to get dirty and scrape through the underbrush, but its clear that this Toyota has led an easy life since getting a full makeover a few years ago. The blunt face has the characteristic close-set headlights and central grille opening, painted black in this trucks case rather than the more familiar off-white, as is just about every other piece of hardware on the body. Theres a big tubular front bumper with grille guard, a set of tow hooks, and stand-up parking lights, all of which give it a very function-over-form look thats endearing. Original badges have been reinstalled and with that trick LED light bar above the windshield and the beefy spare tire mounted out back, this FJ looks ready for anything.

Having served in every country on earth, the Toyotas interior is purely about ruggedness rather than high fashion, and thats perfectly OK here. The bucket seats are actually comfortable enough for all-day slogs and theres a tubular roll bar overhead in case things take a turn for the worse. The gauges are cleverly fitted into an instrument panel that can be mounted on either side depending on where the Toyota is serving duty, and that long shifter handle manages the 3-speed manual gear box. There are no frills here, not even an AM radio, and the back seat has been removed to free up some valuable cargo space, and the floors appear to have been covered with spray-in bedliner material. And for weather protection, there is a brand new black top with crystal clear windows and removable doors for the full open-air experience.

Toyotas smooth, torquey, and eminently reliable 235 cubic inch inline-six provides the motivation and if theres a more reliable machine, it hasnt been invented yet. Designed to be easy to service and to work in the most extreme conditions, its surely up for a Saturday afternoon crawling along your favorite trail. Its not detailed for show under the hood, but its clean and functional with lots of recent maintenance and all the proper hardware for going where others fear to tread. It starts easily and pulls the truck around with vigor, and thanks to the 2-speed transfer case and lift kit on the suspension, its perfectly happy to idle along at barely a crawl, ignoring obstacles as big as bowling balls. Theres a single Flowmaster muffler that gives the six a unique sound and there are a lot of new components underneath, suggesting that its in top condition and ready to enjoy. 15-inch steel wheels are finished in menacing satin black and wrapped with giant 35x12.50-15 BFGoodrich off-road radials that complete the butch look.

If youre looking for a fun 4x4 thats not a Jeep, or are interested in an off-roader thatll hold its value, then the Toyota FJ40 is always a smart choice. Call today!
