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.

FOR SALE: 1988 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62

For sale from a Red Line Customer

CUSTOMER OVERVIEW:

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

  • If you need shipping…I’ve used Summit Auto Transport several times and they’re very reliable. For a shipping quote, go to www.SummitAutoTransport.com

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 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.

INQUIRE:

PHOTO SLIDESHOW:

[metaslider id=12299]

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • 205,000 miles on original motor, which is in good running order
  • 35 x 12.5 x r15 tires with about 25% treadlife
  • Original dash is not cracked and in very good shape
  • On board air compressor (hooked up to air conditioning system, press the A/C button in the cab to operate)
  • Original upholstery
  • New tail pipe
  • Body is in pretty good condition, all things considered. It does have the rhino liner around the bottom, but underneath seems to be pretty solid with the exception of a couple spots.
  • Larger tires were added about 10 months ago. Prior to that the stock tires were on it for the majority of its life.

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Transmission is missing 1st gear. Drove it from Denver to Colorado Springs (60 miles) by shifting to “1”, which starts it in second gear, then shifting to “D” at about 25mph. The A/T Oil Temp light came on towards the end of the trip. It will need a used transmission (one available from Red Line) or you can do a 5 speed transmission swap.
  • Interior is a 5/10 with the exception of the dash, which is a 9/10. It would be a 10/10 if it weren’t for the small little piece by the speaker box. Front carpet is original and in good shape. Mid carpet section has been replaced and looks pretty good. Rear cargo carpet is pretty soiled. Seats are dirty and really not too bad, less the driver’s bottom seat. Headliner is in good shape. The interior could be made to be pretty nice again with a bit of work and some good used parts.
  • Rear cargo windows are not glass. Someone replaced them with plexiglass. Didn’t realize this until I went to wash the car and dry the car off.
  • Missing front bumper (looks like a tow bar was hooked up at one point)
  • Rear bumper and drivers rear panel dented
  • Brakes a bit soft…but it could just be because of those bigger tires
  • Some rust here and there, but nothing major
  • One of the shocks is broken off
  • It has a spring over lift, but it’s nothing great and it really needs to be redone properly or converted back to the original suspension set up

Overview:

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.

Features:

  • Power steering
  • Power locks and windows
  • Automatic transmission
  • 4×4 High / Low Range
  • Unlike the FJ60, the rear bench seats have shoulder belts (except for the middle seat which has a lap belt)
  • 6 cylinder
  • Class IV tow hitch
  • Front bucket seats
  • AM/FM CD Player with XM Satellite Radio
  • Original tool bag and jack

Vehicle Highlights:

  • All fluids changed (axles, tranny, t-case, oil/filter, coolant, etc.)
  • Rebuilt radiator
  • New fan clutch
  • Converted A/C system to R134 from R12 (they won’t let you run R12 anymore so we converted this for you)
  • A/C blows super cold
  • New Toyota OEM, brand new front bumper

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.
