This 1980 Land Cruiser FJ40 is said to have been refurbished in Venezuela before it was imported to the US in 2019 and acquired by the seller on BaT in October 2019. Work reportedly included refinishing the truck in turquoise with a white roof in addition to rebuilding the 4.2-liter inline-six, four-speed manual transmission, and a dual-range transfer case. Additional features include fog lights, 15″ steel wheels, an Old Man Emu steering stabilizer, manually locking front hubs, Vintage Air climate control, and rear jump seats. Service during current ownership is said to have consisted of reupholstering the seats in brown, installing a PerTronix ignition system, and replacing the carburetor, fuel tank, radiator, brake master cylinder, brake lines, and window regulators. This FJ40 is now offered with service records and an Alabama registration in the seller’s name.
Previously beige, the body of this FJ40 was removed during the refurbishment and refinished in turquoise with a white roof. The door seals, front indicators, and tail lights were also reportedly replaced at that time. Exterior details include fog lights with yellow lenses, a folding windshield with hold-downs, and silver bumpers.
Gray 15″ steel wheels are mounted with LT235-15 Pirelli Campero tires, and a matching spare is mounted to a swing-out rear carrier. The truck is equipped with manually locking front hubs and an Old Man Emu steering stabilizer. Braking is provided by front discs and rear drums, and service during current ownership reportedly consisted of replacing the rear brake cylinders, brake lines and brake master cylinder.
The cabin features front bucket seats and inward-facing rear jump seats trimmed in brown upholstery along with matching door panel inserts and a black dash pad. Appointments include Vintage Air climate control, sun visors, and pop-out rear quarter windows. The seller notes that the Vintage Air system was installed, seats were reupholstered, lap belts were installed, and the window regulators were replaced during current ownership.
The three-spoke steering wheel frames a replacement 160-km/h speedometer as well as gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, amperage, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 162 kilometers (~100 miles), and total mileage is unknown.
The 4.2-liter 2F inline-six was reportedly rebuilt under previous ownership and is said to be fitted with a PerTronix ignition system. Service during current ownership is said to have included rebuilding the alternator and replacing the carburetor, fuel tank, radiator, valve cover gasket, and spark plugs. The seller notes the oil was changed and coolant was flushed in preparation for sale.
Power is routed to the rear or all four wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. The transmission and transfer case were also reportedly rebuilt under previous ownership, and additional photos of the underbody are provided in the gallery.
The truck does not have a title, as it is registered in a state that does not issue titles for a vehicle of its age. It is being sold on its registration.
