Old School Cool 1980 Dune Beige FJ40

Built in April of 1980, this Land Cruiser FJ40 was owned for decades by one family. The truck spent some of it's early life in TX prior to moving to Louisiana and was lovingly restored by her owner who passed in 2014. She remained in the family until 2021.


She retains her original 2F engine, 4-speed transmission and drive train. She has factory power steering and Cool Cruisers A/C.

The restoration was performed several years ago and the FJ40 has been driven very sparingly in recent years. She was recently used for a wedding in 2021. The odometer reads 39,379 miles however only the 10th's are tuning today so total mileage is unknown.

Under the hood you will find a de-smogged stock 2F engine. The stock carb has been replaced long ago with a Downey Performance Package which includes a Holley carb and headers. This Downey upgrade was very popular in the 80's and 90's. The engine runs great. The truck has good power and is easy to drive.

The front and rear bumpers had to come from Cool Cruisers of Texas. I've seen many just like them over the years and they are beefy! The front bumper houses auxiliary Hella front lights and a Warn MX6085 D1 winch that I tested and it works fine but is not currently connected to the battery. On the roof you will find a heavy-duty Garvin Industries Wilderness Rack that was purchased in 1984. 

The suspension appears largely unmodified except for extended shackles. Remington Wide Brute 33 x 12.50 tires are wrapped around black 15" steel spokes. Window tint is applied to all windows and a strip also covers the upper portion of the original windshield. The original jack rests behind the drivers seat. The original manual is in the glove box with the Warn winch remote. The dash pad has a couple small cracks and I have installed a dark gray carpeted DashMat which is held in place with velcro. The floors are lined in black and covered with a gray carpet kit.


The headliner is original and in great shape. Front seats have been recovered and there are no tears or issues. The rear jump seats are not present. There is no radio. There is a small dimmable amber light that provides additional illumination for the instrument cluster and operates in concert with the stock cluster lighting. The turn signals function correctly when used but the bulbs in the instrument cluster need to be replaced. You will also find a toggle switch for the Aux front Hella lamps and a 12v accessory panel below the dash for charging. There is a hitch on back and flat four wiring for trailer lights.

The truck comes with the jack, jack rods, toolkit.  A full service was performed on 11/9/21. All fluids flushed and refreshed. Oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, radiator, etc. This is a good one!
