37 Years In Yuma

She has spent her life in Yuma, AZ before moving to VA in July 2018. Of any populated place in the contiguous United States, Yuma is the driest, the sunniest, and the least humid. (Wikipedia) 


I owned this truck in 2016 so we have some history. This 1979 FJ40 has factory A/C that blows cold. She was repainted from Olive to Beige in 2004. The firewall remains the original Olive.  Original engine, drivetrain, and suspension with newer BFG’s over white spokes.

The odometer seized up around 70K miles. I blame that fine Yuma desert dust. The current owner installed a new-old-stock cluster with the odometer set at zero. Today it reads about 3500. The original cluster is included in the sale.


This is pretty low miles truck in my opinion. I'm estimating less than 75,000 miles. The interior is very nice. The original front seat upholstery needed a few minor repairs when I owned her. I used material from another FJ40 to keep the seats 100% stock. The rear jump seat covers were sun baked so they were replaced. The floor mat has minimal wear. No holes. Radio delete plate in dash. New headliner and new dashpad, door rubber. Door cards show some cracking from the heat. 


Original 2F with Weber 38 Carb and has been de-smogged. The truck will run 70MPH without issue. Great power and nice running 2F.  Brakes are great! Steering tight. Current owner had the tank boiled out and fuel system gone through. Replaced the battery, brake master cylinder and some brake lines. Repaired some small items like the cabin light and cigar lighter. Rust free late model truck with A/C. She's always been garage kept...even in AZ, but especially in VA and it shows.


Comes with the original carb, air cleaner and smog parts that were removed. Also includes Jack, Toolkit and Owners manual.
