OVERVIEW

This is one of the earliest FJ60s I’ve ever come across. The VIN plate reads “Sep 1980” and according to the final four digits in the VIN this would be the 1,021st FJ60 brought into the United States. Since the first FJ60s brought into the United States were in 1981, and since the official production dates (according to a vintage Toyota shop posted I have) say they started in October 1980, this one is early.

What’s especially interesting about this 60 series is the fact that it is completely stripped down. No A/C, no rear wiper, no rear defrost. It’s is completely utilitarian.

I bought this from the previous owner here in Colorado who began worked on it over the course of a couple years.  He started to do the body work on it and did a “meh” job. The rust was cut out and replaced with bondo and fiberglass patches. The rust was primarily in the rear quarters, rear lift gate, and a smidge in the rain gutter in the rear corners (maybe a quarter size hole), and a couple holes under the rear wheel wells and under the driver seat floor pan.

When I found out that it was an extremely early FJ60, I decided I would clean it up, tune it up, and put a little love into it. To do a killer body job and paint job would be around $8k to $10k. I couldn’t commit to that level of a restoration, but I decided to give it a solid paint job in one of my favorite FJ40 color combos: Olive Green (code 653) and Cygnus White top. Yep. It’s a nice paint job over a “meh body” job. But, dang, it looks cool. And I’ve priced it according to the level of investment I have into it. It’s not a $20,000 to $30,000 restoration, but it looks great going down the road and it’s tuned and dialed in.

This will make a great trail Cruiser or could be daily driven.

THE GOOD

  • New paint job – Olive Green and White top (FJ40 colors)
  • Lower miles, only 182k
  • Carb rebuilt; runs great
  • Thule cross bars
  • Valve adjustment, valve cover replaced, new valve cover grommets
  • New PCV valve
  • New fuel filter
  • Tuned and adjusted (note: adjusted for an elevation of 7,300′. If you’re at sea level or below 4,000′ it will require low altitude jets and an adjustment for elevation)
  • New dash cap
  • Installed much nicer, original front bucket seats
  • Installed nicer door cards
  • Brand new, old stock front orange side marker lights, rear tail light lenses, wiper caps, and wiper arm covers
  • New carpet in the rear
  • New rear cargo side panels (backing and carpet)
  • Carpet up front in very good shape
  • New FJ40 emblems (to go with the FJ40 color combo). The “Toyota Land Cruiser” rear side emblems, rear 4WD emblem, and rear “TOYOTA” emblem would have all originally been on a late 70s FJ40.
  • Original center console cup holders there and in good shape (rare)
  • Lifted with newer tires
  • Frame sanded and repainted
  • Power steering appears to have been rebuilt recently (we didn’t do it, but it feels great and you can tell by how clean and oil-free it is. Most are a hot mess. Literally.)

THE SO-SO

  • Rear main seal leaks (most of them do…we usually wait until the clutch needs to be replaced and do it then…it’s a $30 part).
  • Front axle leaks (most of them do…we usually wait until it needs a brake job and use the Cruiser Outfitters kit to do the whole thing)
  • The rust. That said, one thing that could help with that meh body job is to have LineX sprayed on the bottom portion of the Cruiser. I had this on another FJ60 in the past, and it actually looked really cool while protecting the most vulnerable areas. See photos.
  • There were some splits in the headliner. I just frankenstein stitched them up. I think this is a pretty cool (and appropriate) look for this Cruiser, but the headliner is less than perfect.
  • Missing the hood insulation that clips under the hood. I have one on a parts Cruiser that’s decent and I plan to install that this week.

OTHER NOTES

  • It comes with a nice set of new speakers for the front doors, a set of good 6×9 speakers, and a used Kenwood amplifier that will fit under the front seat. Not installed.
  • I have a set of original FJ60 chrome rims, if you want to go back to stock on those. $250 for the set. Or, you could put a set of FJ40 rims on it with hub caps and all. We can get those brand new for around $650 complete.

Owner Description

It’s not so much that a man chooses his journey, but that the journey chooses the man.  The experience had been trying. He had to empty all his stores of bravery, strength, and survival instinct. After years of preparation, things he never thought would matter had culminated to this one moment. It was the moment that mattered most. The moment that would define him for the rest of his days. Now, atop his steadfast and freeborn red cruiser, the rising sun, a poetic end to a life-changing adventure.

This rust-free Cruiser is a rare find.  Professionally restored in 2015, the following items were completed:

– Complete body work removing any imperfections.

– Primed, painted three times with “Freeborn Red” and finally two coats of clear coat applied.

– Undercoated with a 3M rubberized product to protect it from the elements.

SOLD! 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62, Lifted & Trail-Ready

Overview:

This 1989 FJ62 was owned by the same family since the late 90s. It sports an Old Man Emu lift, oversized tires on 16″ rims, an ARB front bumper, ARB rock sliders, and a roof rack with a spare tire carrier mount. Includes a Pioneer AM/FM/CD radio with matching 6-disc changer, original owners manual, bottle jack and tool kit. Also includes a fair amount of service records. Engine was completely replaced in the early 1990s.

Details:

  • Dark gray exterior, blue interior
  • 285/75/r16 BFG A/T tires (33.5″ tires)
  • View 200+ photos below and download/view super high res versions here (part 1) and here (part 2)
  • Located in Monument, Colorado
  • VIN: JT3FJ62G3K1112832

The Good:

  • Runs and shifts smooth
  • BFG tires have a year or so left tread-wise
  • Trail-ready FJ with about $3k worth of upgrades in the tires, fog lights, suspension, ARB front bumper, rock slider and roof rack alone.
  • AM/FM/CD with 6-disc changer

The So-So:

  • Speedo stopped working years ago. Previous owner guessed the mileage to be around 270k.
  • Runs but sat for a while and needs a tune up, all fluids changed, and will need a new air intake hose (currently taped as a temporary fix; it sucks air in and throws off the system and runs like crap otherwise)
  • Front seat bottoms are pretty beat in the front under the seat covers. Front seat backs are fine.
  • Horn and rear wiper not working
  • Has rust, but limited to the body and priced accordingly.

SOLD! 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60, Low Miles

FOR SALE FROM A RED LINE CUSTOMER

1985 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60

Overview:

This 1985 FJ60 was owned by the same family for the last 20 years. It sports vintage 1980s pin stripes that reminds me of the movie Tron. It was used as an extra vehicle on the previous owner’s mountain property in Colorado and thus why it has such low miles. While it does have some rust on the outside, the interior is absolutely incredible and with some body/metal work and a paint job this would be one fantastic daily driver. Currently located in Monument, Colorado.

Details:

  • Located in Monument, Colorado
  • 168k miles
  • Metallic blue exterior, blue interior
  • VIN: JT3FJ60G4F1132502
  • Warn winch added to original front bumper
  • Newer lift leaf springs, radiator, alternator, oil just changed
  • Includes full original tool kit, jack, jack rods, and owner’s manual

The Good:

  • 168k miles (super low for an 85′)
  • Transmission shifts smoothly, 4WD works great, and drives smooth down the road
  • Interior is incredibly clean, headliner is perfect, seats immaculate.
  • All original less the side mirrors, radio, rims and addition of the Warn winch
  • A/C Blows Cold
  • Original air intake hose is crack free (rare)
  • Center console is perfect (rare)
  • Washer bottles for front lights and windshield wipers are crack-free (rare)
  • Fully smogged
  • Rocker panels in very good condition

The So-So

  • Dent in the lower valence (used one around $100; roughly 8 bolts to remove and replace)
  • Windshield cracked (estimated $200 to replace)
  • Front quarter panel dented and has some rust (estimated $150 to $200 for a good used one)
  • Rust in rear quarters (new metal panels available for $645)
  • Front axle seals need replaced (almost all of them do)
  • Radio sort of works; display won’t show you anything but a blank screen but tape deck works (although the tape won’t eject)
  • To be a reliable daily driver it will only need new tires and a tune up (plugs, wires, cap rotor, and probably a carb cleaning or possible rebuild)
  • Needs thermostat and thermostat sending unit (about $50 for the parts, takes about an hour to replace)
  • Voltage is reading low. Need to diagnose. Starts and runs fine and the battery never dies so it might be the gauge. I have a good used one that will go with the truck.
