The original FJ series was contracted to Toyota by the US Government in the early '50s to support the US military in Japan. The design concept was based on the original Willys Jeep. These vehicles were well built and are virtually indestructible. This FJ43 is quite rare stateside as the extended wheelbase '43' version was never exported to the US. This FJ43 was only recently brought to this country from South America. It has received a nice partial restoration back to original condition. This FJ43 is solid, without a trace of body/pan rust. The Toyota Olive paint was applied in 2015 and the fiberglass rear shell (refinished in white) appears to be in very good shape. Overall, the condition of the cab is very good. Front seats were reupholstered with grey vinyl in 2016 and new floor mats were installed over sound deadening material. There is a full set of instruments, a km/hr speedometer and Sony AM/FM/CD. Rear seating is 'military-style', wherein six additional passengers face each other. The FJ43 is powered by Toyota's 4.2L OHV J-code straight six that produces 135bhp and 210 lb/ft of torque. A wide-ratio 4-speed transmission is linked to a 3-speed 4WD transfer case with manual locking front hubs. It has Toyota's conventional off-road elliptical leaf spring suspension - 6 front leafs and 6+2 rear leafs. This rare FJ43 is very much the same vehicle that left of the Toyota plant in 1979. It will not be around long. For more information, call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
