BaT Auction: 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

This post was originally published on this site

This 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser is finished in red with a black soft top, and power comes from a 4.2L straight-six paired with a 4-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. Approximately 46k kilometers (~28k miles) are shown, and this FJ was imported from Venezuela before the selling dealer’s recent acquisition. Power steering and brakes are equipped, and the tires, starter, spark plug wires, radiator, and carburetor have been replaced. This FJ40 is offered by the selling dealer with a spare radiator, importation documents, and a clean Florida title.

The body has been repainted in red and features a black soft top with zip-up side windows and ambulance-style half doors at the rear. The emblems have been also been replaced, and the paintwork is shown up close in gallery photos below.

The 4.2-liter 2F straight-six has reportedly been fitted with a rebuilt starter and a replacement carburetor, as well as new spark plug wires. An aluminum radiator has also been installed, and the replaced unit is included in the sale. The seller states that the engine would benefit from a tune-up. Photos in the gallery show an engine stamping number matching the number on the firewall-mounted data plate.
