This 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 is a soft top model that was purchased by the seller in Bogota, Colombia and was imported to the US in June 2019. Refurbishment work was completed in October 2019 and reportedly included replacement of the tub, doors, and fenders, a repaint in white, refinishing of the frame, and interior refreshment as well as replacement of the soft top, wheels, and tires. Power is from a rebuilt 4.2-liter 2F inline-six paired with a four-speed manual gearbox and a two-speed transfer case, and Old Man Emu suspension components have been installed along with a Kenwood stereo, a new HVAC unit, and four-row radiator. This FJ40 is now offered in Birmingham, Alabama with photos from the refurbishment work and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The seller reports that the tub, doors, and fenders were replaced by the seller’s shop in Bogota prior to the truck’s importation in June 2019. A repaint was performed in white, and a fresh soft top with roll-up sides was installed, along with new mirrors, glass, weatherstripping, lights, and emblems.
The gray-painted 15″ steel wheels and 33″ BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM3 tires were installed during current ownership. The front wheels are mounted on manually-locking hubs, and a matching spare is located out back.
The interior was refreshed with new seat frames and tan upholstery. A Kenwood stereo has been added to the body-colored dashboard, and an air conditioning system from Vintage Air is mounted underneath. The seller reportedly replaced the door handles and internal mechanisms.
A stock steering wheel frames a replacement gauge cluster housing a 160-km/h speedometer as well as a five-digit odometer that shows 59 miles, although true mileage is unknown.
The rear cargo area features fold-down troop-style seating as well as a vinyl floor mat.
The 4.2-liter 2F inline-six sends power to the rear or all four wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The powertrain was reportedly rebuilt by the seller’s shop, and a four-row radiator was installed to accommodate the aftermarket A/C system.
During the refurbishment, the frame was sandblasted, painted, and clear coated. The clutch hydraulics and power-assisted brakes were refreshed, and Old Man Emu shocks and a steering stabilizer were added. Additional photos of the underbody can be viewed in the gallery below.
