I am selling my restored FJ40 with the help of Red Line Land Cruisers of Colorado Springs. Red Line Land Cruisers is putting the finishing touches on the restored cruiser and handling the sale for me.

It’s not perfect, but damn close. I sent it to Justin at Redline to help sort it out and finish the restoration. It needs a new dash pad ($600) or dash cap ($100) and a few other small odds and ends and any custom mods you want Redline to add as personal preference. Price is $31,000 delivered to you in the continental 48 states.
Up for sale from a Red Line Land Cruisers customer is this red 1969 Toyota LandCruiser FJ40.
Owner description: 1969 Toyota FJ 40 Land Cruiser with 56,600 original miles. All original except for the rims. F145 inline 6 runs strong. This unit has the 3 speed transmission and shifts on the column. 4 wheel drive works good. New parts include: battery, starter, brake master cylinder, clutch master cylinder, clutch slave cylinder, thermostat, water pump, new hoses, new belt, reconditioned radiator, new exhaust system, recent tuneup (new plugs, wires, new points, condenser, cap and rotor). The tires are Interco Super Swampers and have lots of wear left. I have the pto unit for this rig. Presently, it’s not mounted on the transfer case. I have extra oil filters as well. I am the third owner of this well cared for Cruiser. Very little rust. Must see to appreciate. Who needs a road? Price has recently been lowered and is negotiable.
Truck is in great condition mechanically and the body has very little rust for a 40 y/o vehicle. It currently is wrapped in a mossy oak finish but the body and paint under the wrap is in good condition. Super low gears are incredible for rock crawling and the hard top and full camo wrap makes it a great truck for hunting.

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!)
