This 1980 FJ40 came from Lubbock, TX  to Texarkana in the spring of 2018. It was an original, unmodified last-generation FJ40, and it had a solid original drivetrain (about 77k miles) and a recent Old Man Emu suspension install.  The new owner wanted AC and Power Steering so those were sourced and installed from Vintage Air and Iron Pig Offroad, as well as desmog kit and removal of the emissions.  She was also given a tuneup and new belts. 


Safari Classics of Hot Springs, AK performed a full frame-off, glass out restoration of the paint and body.  This included all new hardware, glass out weatherstripping (Toyota), windshield, nut and bolt body hardware (exterior stainless), and undercoating. Lots of brand new OEM Toyota accessories were also purchased like mirrors, latches, door handles, etc.  Paint was base clear coat and factory matched. Sound deadening and a new form fitting floor mat was sourced, and a Tuffy console, with bluetooth stereo receiver and new custom mounted speakers were added.  A pre-owned period correct Warn 8274 was installed and new BFG KM3 Mud Terrain 33x10.50s were mounted on period correct Toyota Landcruiser FJ40 steel wheels with center caps.  The brake pads are new.  


The AC blows COLD, and the power steering makes it very easy to drive.  It has the later model 3:70 gearing, so it will cruise at 65 MPH down the road.  Four wheel drive works well, and all the gears shift smooth. I am currently sorting out some minor electrical and mechanical issues and the truck should be ready to roll by mid July, 2024
