SOLD! 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62

FOR SALE: 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62

For sale from a Red Line Customer


This 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 is in very good, all original condition. Very clean inside and out and mechanically strong and reliable. It sports a late 80s era sunroof and roof rack, probably installed by Toyota when the truck was purchased in 88.


  • 237,000 miles
  • Clean Colorado Title
  • Automatic transmission
  • VIN:
  • JT3FJ62G6J0088501

The good:

  • Daily driver
  • Engine runs strong and smooth
  • Transmission shifts smooth through all gears
  • Interior in excellent condition and very clean including the original carpet and upholstery.
  • Non-smoker, no pets
  • Tires are practically brand new – 31″ x 10.5 x r15 Goodyear Wranglers
  • New CD/AM/FM radio with USB and AUX inputs; sounds great

Recent Work Includes:

  • Thermostat, thermostat housing gasket, water inlet gasket, hoses and coolant replaced at 236,000
  • New PCV Valve, plugs, cap and rotor, plug wires, air filter, and battery terminal ends replaced at 236,000

  • New belts at 214,000
  • Rebuilt power steering pump at 212,000
  • New brake rotors, pads, shoes at 209,000

The so-so:

  • Rear electric window motors are slow/sluggish. They open and close, but the passenger side needs help going back up if you take it down to low
  • Blinker won’t shut off when you turn the corner. You have to manually click it off.
  • Brights turn on, but sometimes you have to pull back the lever and then swing it forward real quick. It’s the same switch as the blinker, so I’m guessing it just needs a new switch
  • It was repainted a few years back. From 10 feet away it looks great, but when you get up close you’ll see some of the paint chipping here and there. Nothing terrible…it looks like it was a good paint job, but it definitely wasn’t a super high-end paint job.
  • Has a few leaks. One looks like it’s in the t-case and the other is probably the rear main seal (which is pretty typical for Land Cruisers). A couple drips a day.
  • Can’t get the glove box open
  • Speedometer is off by about 3-4 mph. If you’re going 55, you’re really going about 51.
  • Power antenna motor works, but the antenna doesn’t go up and down. The antenna gets reception just fine as-is.

The bad:

  • The passenger side rocker is pretty rusty. The rest of the truck is much better than average, but that rocker has a couple holes in it. I have a good used rust-free rocker panel from a 1986 FJ60 (same specs as the 88 FJ62) that goes along with the truck. It rusted out because of the chrome strip that used to come there. It’s pretty common…they hold in moisture and rust out by where they clip in by the doors.
  • Air Conditioning not working. It either needs a recharge (circa $100) or worst-case it needs a new compressor (circa $300)

All in all, this 1988 FJ62 is in great shape and ready for daily use. It’s been my daily driver and is very reliable.

This 1989 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 has the white exterior and blueish/greyish interior. It is in all-original condition all the way down to the original tool bag and jack. The only thing not original is the  radio, but that can be easily be replaced with an original AM/FM radio. It has spent it’s life in dry climates in California and Colorado and thus this FJ62 is in impeccable condition and is 99.9% rust free. The underside, including the rocker panels, wheel wells and other vulnerable areas, where you will commonly find rust eating away at the body, are completely rust free. The interior of this FJ62 is pristine. The original carpet is in excellent condition and the headliner is perfect with no tears or stains whatsoever. The vehicle was papered and babied since 1989 and it shows. The dash is perfect without any cracks, the heater, A/C blows super cold.

Known Issues:

This FJ62 has been thoroughly inspected and gone over and the following items have been uncovered. None of them are critical fixes.             

  • The front axle will need to be rebuilt. This is a common issue with Land Cruisers and it can be driven like this without issue as long as you check the fluid levels every couple months. We can have the front axle rebuilt for the winning bidder prior to delivery.
  • The front driver’s seat has a small tear on the side. This is very common and we can work to help get this fixed.
  • One small ding the size of a quarter by the rear bumper on the left side. Easily repaired by a good body shop.
