Here's a US Spec numbers matching California smog exempt 1968 Land Cruiser FJ40. She spent her life in CA and is now located in Arizona. The current owner purchased this truck in 2013. This is certainly one of the most stock and unmolested examples you will find.
The previous owner had embarked upon a restoration and eventually lost interest putting the truck in storage until deciding to sell to the current owner who started over.
After complete disassembly, the frame and OEM wheels were media blasted and powder coated. The engine was totally rebuilt by and award winning machine shop and the D40 carburetor was sent to Mark's Off Road for rebuilding.
The rust free body was painted in it's original Spring Green (T1028.) Every part was examined and refurbished or replaced before being fully reassembled. All OEM components were used where available. Exterior fasteners are stainless steel. Up front you will find a vintage Ramsey PTO winch which was dealer installed.
The front knuckles were rebuilt using components from Cruiser Outfitters. All brake and clutch components including master cylinders have been replaced. The 3-speed transmission and transfer case have been opened, inspected and serviced. The "three-on-the-tree" shifts smoothly and is fun to drive. The steering consists of new tie rod ends along with a rebuilt center arm. The steering gear box was sent to West Texas Off-Road for rebuild.
The truck comes with a full hardtop. The windows are in excellent condition. All body emblems are new. The truck rides on BFG 310x10.50x15 All Terrain tires in excellent condition.
The interior features new and correct upholstery from Cruiser Corps. This early Land Cruiser was equipped with a very rare Toyota AM Radio. The headliner was removed and the owner opted to paint the inside of the top rather than deal with inevitable headliner failure.
Brake lights, Headlights, Turn Signals, License plate lighting, Hazards, Wipers, Instrument lighting, Horn, Radio and Front Heater are in excellent working condition.
The owner reportedly has all keys to the vehicle along with the jack, jack rods, jack handle and reproduction owners manual.
