CUSTOMER DESCRIPTION

Here is my ’71 TLC ready to take you out in the Great Outdoors of Colorado. It has been partially restored by Red Line, having spent untold hours sanding the body before painting it the classic red color, having patched the rear quarter panels with new steel to fix those classic rust holes in the body. I quote from the original Restoration Details: “Our team of professionals will carefully strip down your old paint, examine the metal for rust (none found) and then your FJ40 will be primed and painted with a high quality single stage urethane paint, which will include 3 coats of paint plus a final buffing to bring it to a fabulous looking shine. We paint the original red color on both sides of the hood, bib, fenders, hard top sides, side aprons, and doors. The front grill and hard top will be painted the original white color with a single stage urethane, which will also receive 3 coats of paint and buffing.”

The weather stripping has been replaced to assure you are ‘snug as a bug in a rug’. This is well on its way to another 50 years of life. Twice that time and we are back in 1871, and you can do what I did, exploring the roads and paths of Crystal Park, where I lived in the Caretakers Cabin built in 1952 on Waterfall Loop, just above the site of John Hays Cabin in the Gateway to the Upper Park built in 1883. Hay was private secretary to Lincoln during the Civil War writing parts of his Lincoln biography right there in the summers of1883-1885, when access was via horse drawn buggy on dirt roads with a mechanical turntable switch back. Or visiting the Lost or Hidden Cabin of Alice Hill built in 1886 which Hay purchased shortly thereafter.

The headers are brand new, – you can see their shiny steel in the undercarriage photos. This Land Cruiser can get you there, for example doing the classic loop from Nathrop up Chalk Creek pass Mt Princeton Hot Springs (where I lived in the Estates in founding the Mt Princeton Institute for Advanced Study) to St Elmo (built in 1880 , my Uncle had a cabin there where we stayed during the early 60’s when my father was a pilot in USAF MAC, having on one occasion ferried Pres Kennedy’s car down to Florida during a Missile Crisis in Cuba) then up and over Tincup Pass to Tincup itself, on to Taylor Park Reservoir and back home over Cottonwood Pass down to Buena Vista. Gorgeous off-road trail-beating!

This TLC has been driven with love and devotion. It’s now ready to be taken over by the discriminating owner who can continue its legacy well into the future. The 3.9 liter naturally aspirated, in-line six cylinder engine is original, famous for its durability, reliability and all-around toughness. The wiring harness has been replaced, and various oil lines upgraded, getting the famed Red Line seal of road-readiness.  If you are looking for a restoration project, this 40 is all original and quite functional. Every winter living at 9000 ft off-road in Crystal Park, it started every time I cranked it- it’s a horse, handles like a truck or tractor, floating on those famous leaf springs in the suspension. You can drive her at highway speeds of 55-60 mph and take her over Independence Pass to Aspen for summer festivities.

She’s a beauty, turning heads everywhere I go in her, from the Safeway parking lot in Manitou to the drive up Crystal Park, for 7 miles of paved access to Nature’s boundless beauty above timberline.

She’s ready to go, and if you are so moved, to sustain another $30K in undercarriage and interior restoration (the seats are functional, but could use reupholstering. There’s plenty to do underneath, but nothing that obstructs functionality. The speedo needs hooked up.) We’ve done the exterior, we leave the interior and carriage to you.The J in FJ40 stands for Jeep, and this is one heck of a machine unmatched in mechanical superiority.

Come and see her at Red Line Land Cruisers!

Recent work includes:

  • New rear quarter panels; fresh steel
  • Exterior painted
  • New weatherstrip all around
  • New headers
  • Replaced wiring harness
  • Replaced oil lines and oil sending unit
  • Tune up
  • Tons of tread left on the BFG 31/10.5/r15 all terrain tires

The speedo is currently not working but that could easily be remedied.

History as we know…

This FJ-40 was bought purchased new in Bolder, Colorado. It was used and lived at the Eldora Mines Ski Area.

This rare cruiser had a hand-crafted hard top, which ended up saving the truck form a rusty death.

When we picked it up, it barely ran and was running on 3 cylinders. Nothing worked at that time…no lights, blinkers, the transfer case was blown up, the shifter was broken, the cooling system was in need of repair and the alternator was installed improperly.

Here is what Red Line Land Cruisers did to get this to running / driving status:

  • Fixed the alternator wiring and mounting position
  • Fixed the radiator and cooling system
  • Toyota coil and wires. new plugs
  • Re-timed the dizzy
  • Reset the dizzy for proper ignition timing
  • Adjusted the valves
  • Proper oil change
  • New OEM oil filter
  • Fixed the trans shifter linkages
  • Fixed the steering column pivot assembly
  • Fixed the wiring to get all the lights and blinkers working
  • New rear OEM TOYOTA 1962 tail lights
  • Fabricated reproduction tail light brackets
  • Kioto headlights
  • Full t-case rebuild with proper bearings, seals and new High/low main
    shaft bushings with proper oil clearance
  • Changed all oils, rear axle, front axle, trans, and t-case
  • Greased all joints in steering and drive-shafts
  • Fixed Front Selectro lock out hubs with OEM period correct bolts and
    hardware
  • Cleaned out front and rear axle breathers

What is awesome about this cruiser? Glad you asked!

  • Has all the 23mm OEM period correct early style lug nuts
  • Has Original “Green” starter, original dizzy, and all drive-train,
  • “Darth Vader” interior light. OEM period correct.
  • “Big Window” SD-40 1BBL carb; untouched
  • FJ25 vintage cluster; speedo works and oil pressure light
    works. Fuel and water do not. All lights work.
  • Engine has good compression due to the fact it starts in 1 second with
    out pumping the gas or pulling the choke
  • Trans and t-case are a 2 year only build from the TOYOTA line
  • Last year of the centered rear axle
  • Rare double sided front blinkers

Here is your chance to own one of the rarer FJ40s out there. A classic Colorado beauty ready for a new home!

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.

Now, atop his steadfast and freeborn red cruiser, the rising sun, a poetic end to a life-changing adventure.

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.
