1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 For Sale – Meticulous Resto-Mod Restoration and more than $100k spent with receipts to prove it!
SOLD at Barrett Jackson auction!
This stunning 1977 FJ40 was originally purchased at a Barrett-Jackson auction and the new owner had Red Line Land Cruisers of Colorado Springs work to restore and tastefully modify this FJ. A frame-off restoration was performed BEFORE the added modifications/new restoration was completed, so this Cruiser has been restored twice-over to meet the exacting specifications of the new owner.
If you’re looking for a dependable, completely restored, show-quality, rugged and dependable Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 that can conquer any trail or terrain, this is the one! No sacrifices were made during the restoration and crafting of this beautiful, head-turning rig!
Some of the key features of this FJ40 include the completely rebuilt 2F engine with electronic fuel injection and a brand new Toyota 5-speed manual transmission (H55). This go-anywhere, do-anything, classic FJ40 has tasteful upgrades while remaining very original. For those of you in humid climates concerned about rust, this is a perfect choice for you for two reasons: 1) The body was in pristine, rust-free condition before the restoration was started and 2) The LineX paint job, both inside and out, ensures an air-tight bond against the metal, which will give you confidence that your Land Cruiser will remain rust-free for decades to come, no matter what you throw at it or how humid the climate!
57,000 miles (it is unknown if these were original miles or not. Either way, the engine was completely rebuilt and it has a brand new transfer case and transmission…so it’s like new!)
EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) on the original 2F Toyota straight six engine
2f H55 5-speed transmission
New split transfer case allows you to drive in 4-Low, 4-High, 2-Low, or 2-High (unlimited options for facing any variety of trails or circumstances)
Custom fiberglass sound system mounted to family roll cage with alpine marine waterproof controller and focal speakers installed by the pros at Car Toys (you can literally run this rig in the water and drench the speakers, subwoofer, and radio and it can take the water just like any boat stereo system can)
Waterproof Tuffy center console with built-in subwoofer keeps all your valuables protected and dry, even if fully submerged in water during a river or lake crossing
This FJ was crafted to basically go into any river, allow for water to fill the cabin and then quickly drain and dry out

Swing-able spare tire rack swings smooth and easy and provides quick access for passengers to enter through the LandCruiser ambulance doors

Marine carpet ensures those river crossings won’t be an issue as it dries fast and provides quick drainage and easy clean-up.
3-row aluminum radiator
New RV camshaft with new lifters and valve springs
Has not been offroaded – this rig was restored and has been babied and garaged ever since (take a look at the other vintage cars in the owner’s garage and you’ll get a sense of the quality and investment in this rig). It’s ready to rock the trails by a new owner!

This FJ40 has just undergone an extensive 3+ year total restoration which has been restored to better than new factory correct condition!
The only modifications are the diamond plated aluminum running boards, the new Mickey Thompson Callic 2 wheels, BF Goodrich 33-12.50 KO all terrain tires and everything is factory correct and original all the way down to the emissions control sticker under the hood.
It has been upgraded with a freshly rebuilt 2F engine that runs strong, also has a Weber carb and electronic ignition (for reliability) conversion. This FJ40 is a 62K mile, locally-owned survivor and is as solid as a new one with absolutely no rust or body damage of any kind when I started this restoration on it and now is just waiting for some to buy it and enjoy it.
It has all new weatherstripping throughout, and with the exception of the vent windows and hardtop corner windows it also has all new glass which was installed with new rubber seal. Each piece of chrome was sent out to World renowned Graves Plating in Florence Alabama where it was polished, re-chromed and is all in better than new condition. The chrome work is much better than factory original.
I also installed for safety, a set of factory correct appearing LED tail lights which also have to be seen to be believed. Every piece of trim on the vehicle is perfect and is all factory new Toyota replacement parts and believe it or not this FJ even has the factory original spare.
This FJ was completely disassembled as far as it could be without removing the body from the frame and every piece including the body tub was media blasted and epoxy primed multiple times, massaged and then painted inside and out with 3 coats of Dupont ProThane factory correct Olive brown (code 653). The white trim was painted factory correct Cygnus white. As you can see in the pictures this vehicle looks amazing! The pictures do not do it justice! I could talk for days about this FJ40 but look at the pictures, watch the video and decide for yourself!
New inner felts for door windows (included and ready for install)
New outer window wiper/seal (included and ready for install)
New OEM Shift knob
New side emblem
Fuel System Flushed/cleaned
Front cam seal replaced and Timing cover (over $990 at shop) to fix front oil leak on front crank.
Factory AM Stereo Not hooked up
A/C not charged
Low fan speed not working (medium and High work)
Parking brake not working (have new parking shoes just have not had time to replace)
Windshield sprayer works just needs line from reservoir and sprayer nozzle.
PPI: Copy of PPI from when I purchased can be sent if interested. PM me. Will give you idea of what I purchased. Photos: I’ve tried to take all photos of exterior, interior, underside so you have a good understanding of the condition. The cruiser is very solid and is a head turner. The new owner will not be disappointed! Looking to sell your Land Cruiser? List it on the Red Line Land Cruisers classifieds section for free!
