1981 FJ40 - No Excuses

Updated: Oct 9, 2023

Beautiful 1981 US Spec FJ40. She starts, runs and drives flawlessly!

Over $20K in documented improvements and upgrades like a complete repaint in her original 033 paint color and factory power steering consisting of all new OEM parts. OEM stock hard top with 100% new OEM roof gaskets, side gaskets, window and door weatherstripping and a new headliner. Up front there's a new Cool Cruisers "shorty" front bumper with a never used Warn 8274 winch. A complete new Old Man Emu suspension has been fitted and the truck sports 31x10.50 BFG All Terrains KO2's with less than 1000 miles wrapped around sparkling FJ60 chrome wheels with center caps in the rear and on the spare. A new Red Top Optima battery was recently added.

The stock 4.2L 2F original engine and 4-speed transmission operate perfectly and she and retains all her original emission equipment. New clutch plate, pressure plate and throwout bearing. Brakes front and rear have been serviced. New knuckle bearings, wheel bearings, axle seals and new tie rod ends.

The interior is in excellent shape. All the glass is excellent with a new windshield. The front seats have been recovered and the jump seats retain their original upholstery. The floors are covered with the original front Toyota floor coverings in excellent condition. The rear cargo mat is after market. Between the front seats you'll find a Tuffy locking console. The truck retains the original working AM radio. The dash pads are all excellent and the dash is uncut. All gauges and controls operate as they should. The truck does not have the optional rear heater or air conditioning.

Always stored in a heated garage, the body and frame are near perfect and rust free. The truck comes with all the keys, service records since 2016, factory jack, jack rods, original Owners manual and toolkit. She's a beautiful example that's been lovingly upgraded, improved and maintained & driven sparingly.
