Sold new in Nevada, this beautiful 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser remained with its original owner until 2013, when it was discovered with just 39,000 miles from new in uncommonly original condition. This FJ40 hardtop has recently emerged from a comprehensive bare-metal, bare-frame restoration in its original color of Freeborn Red. The original side-facing rear seats and new front seats from Cool Cruisers of Texas were reupholstered in correct gray and black vinyl.

With such modest mileage, the engine, transmission, and balance of the drivetrain required only fresh seals, gaskets, and fluids. There is a new OEM starter, clutch, and radiator, and the original alternator was rebuilt, all the work being carried out by a Toyota certified master technician who works exclusively with FJ40s.

The suspension was freshened with OEM Toyota parts including shock absorbers, tie rods, and the front stabilizer shock. This FJ40 is fitted with new Toyo Open Country All-Terrain tires mounted on original steel wheels, and is supplied with a jack, tool kit, its original owner’s manual, and trouble lamp.

Now in the care of just its third owner from new, this outstanding FJ40 is a professionally restored example, retaining original components, and is deserving of careful consideration.
