I took delivery of this US Spec CA FJ40 in October of 2012. I spent a few months sorting her out. I gave her new Wrangler tires wrapped around factory correct wheels with new hubcaps. I put in a new factory correct headliner and all new OEM door weather stripping. I repaired the original radio and put in a new old stock speaker and some other small details.The front seats had been reupholstered while in CA. I sent her off to a collection in New Hampshire where she has been sparingly driven and garaged for the last eight years.
This FJ40 is a beautiful original US Spec 1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser with 70,600 miles. Original California numbers matching truck with factory emissions. She passed CA smog certification in July 2012. She retains her original 2F motor, 4-Speed transmission, window sticker, factory-original AM radio, original paint, dash, gauges, seats, doors, panels, glass, fenders, floors, tub, hood, top, bumpers, frame, etc. Looks, runs and drives excellent. Never repainted, never restored, always cared for, garaged and maintained.
Everything is in good working order. The radio, headlights, turn signals, hazards, wipers, washers, interior light, dash lights, parking lights, side markers, license plate lights, all gauges, speedometer and odometer, even the carb cooling fan works! Other than described, this is a totally unmolested, factory-original FJ40 with a few minor nicks and scrapes in remarkable condition for her age.
