In need of a classic way to head off of the beaten path, to make your own trail? MotoeXotica Classic Cars is proud to present this 1971 Toyota FJ-40 Land Cruiser Hardtop.

Finished in a gecko green Kevlar Rhino paint inside and out, the color is eye-catching but very rugged. The paint and trim are in overall excellent order, however there is a minor crack on the drivers side door near the side glass.

The truck has new windows and weather-stripping while the lights are in overall satisfactory condition. Overall, the trucks bodywork is straight and solid. The rear cargo area is in very good condition and the bumpers fit well to the trucks body. While it is equipped with a winch, it is inoperable.

This FJ-40 rides on 235/75R15 light truck tires, each surrounding white, vented wheels. In front are locking hubs and there is a full-sized spare tire on the rear cargo door.

Under the hood is Toyotas 3.9L straight six-cylinder engine (code F) with a Weber carburetor upgrade. The top and bottom ends of the engine were rebuilt in 2000. The crank, connecting rods and clutch assembly came from a 1972 F2 motor. The cylinders and crank journals/saddles were bored, new bearings were installed, along with a new oil pump. The CAM/CAM bearings replaced while valves, which were in good condition, were left as-is. Engine has new seals throughout. Behind the motor is a rebuilt three-speed manual transmission from Spectre Off-Road.

Inside, the new black upholstery and instrument panel, with its full array of gauges, look great. Obviously, theres no carpeting to worry about and the underside of the white hardtop is in satisfactory shape, considering its age. The three-spoke steering wheel and inner door panels are in fine form and the shifter looks good. This is an audio delete model. A unique gauge is the Lev-O-Gage, an inclinometer which measures the vehicles angle of tilt relative to horizontal, in this case, from -45 to 45. There is also a floor heater.

The original engine design started in the early 1950s when Toyota had begun to export their vehicles internationally. The F engine block, crankshaft and lower end assembly is loosely based on the 1939-63 G.M.C. 235 CID straight six-cylinderbut with a taller deck and built under license. The cylinder head and combustion chamber are derived from the Chevrolet L6 OHV Stovebolt engine, slightly scaled up. The general idea was consumers would feel comfortable with the engine since it was a familiar design and had a proven track record. None of the bottom end of the Toyota engine is interchangeable with these other engines. Driver convenience features include power-assisted four-wheel drum brakes.

A former owner reported that this truck was bought used in 1999 then sold to his father three years later. It was mainly used to collect wood. His father passed away in 2013 and the son sold the vehicle sometime in 2014.

Competition to this Toyota in 1971 included Chevrolets K-5 Blazer, Fords Bronco, GMCs Jimmy, International-Harvesters Scout and Jeeps CJ-5.

This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 46,754 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
