We recently finished a meticulous frame-off restoration on this stunning 1970 Spring Green Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. Our team of FJ experts went through every nut, bolt, wire, gasket, bearing…everything…to ensure this FJ will be solid and beautiful for our customer for another four decades. It’s quite original with just a few exceptions including power steering, custom Red Line factory Toyota OEM replica Air Conditioning system, and a 5 speed manual transmission mounted on the original F engine.
V8 Conversions are a very popular service here at Red Line. This customer found this beautiful 77 FJ-40 here in the mountains of Colorado, from the original owner. It has since been the customers mountain exploration cruiser for summer time trips. The original 2F and 4 speed were used for 2 seasons of exploration with the customer and his family. It was then concluded that the 2F provided plenty of of it’s long lasting heritage but with out power and poor fuel economy at high elevation, a 410H.P. LS series 5.7 L was chosen to be the “Green Machines” new heart. With that a 5 speed manual trans and late model FJ-60 “Split” transfer case was mated to the new all aluminum 5.7
Red line converted this new heart transplant with love and care. Other additions included a custom rear fuel tank, and Red Line’s Big brake Kit in the front to slow down this now Power full cruiser. If you see the “Green Machine” in the mountains of Colorado this year, stop and say hi to the Lucky customer and his new family FJ-40
