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.

Front axle rebuilt at 215,000
New belts at 214,000
Rebuilt power steering pump at 212,000
New brake rotors, pads, shoes at 209,000
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 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.
Original owner never took it off road; used as a family SUV and well cared for and garaged
Water pump and fuel pump replaced in last 1,000 miles
Front axle rebuilt in last 10k miles
Original AM/FM radio works and is in mint condition
Original chrome trim all around including front windshield, top rain gutter, rear hatch window, and bottom chrome strips by lower part of doors (super rare to find anymore)
The seats were covered for their entire life with seat covers up front
Upholstery is in excellent condition
Rear lap belts work perfect (these start to be finnicky if used a lot)
Original tools, jack, jack rods, manual and trouble light with a mint, extremely hard to come by sleeve for the trouble light
4WD works perfect
Headliner is in perfect condition
Runs and drives great; been driving it daily; temp, oil pressure, voltage all right where they should be
The original dash is perfect; not a single crack, which is uber rare to find anymore
It does have some rust down where the chrome strips beneath the doors was attached. It is on the flat part of the metal, so in my mind it can be fixed by adding in new metal. If it had gone down into the rocker panels, that would make it extremely hard to repair, but it is not even close to the rockers and the rockers are perfect
Power steering pump whines a bit, especially when it’s cold
Needs a bit of a carb adjustment
Choke light bulb burned out
Lighting that lights up radio works intermittently (green-ish lighting that illuminates the dial)
Front driver’s seat bottom has a tear in the front part (you can find used OEM replacements)
The air/heat vent by the windows (drivers and passenger sides) is missing the “close” turn knobs. Never seen that before but you can replace these with good used ones which aren’t hard to come by
A few dings and scratches here and there, but nothing major
Up for sale is a one owner Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60. This completely original FJ-60 is extremely clean and I have ALL the owner maintenance records going back to 1985 for this Cruiser.

Here is a list of everything that’s great about this all-original Cruiser:
It runs PERFECT – drives 75mph easily on the interstate (there’s debate about Weber vs. Aisin and I have to say…I’m sold on this Weber carb set up. It’s got way more punch and gets much better has mileage).
No splits in the original dash (this is extremely rare)
Original AM/FM Tape deck with the operation manual
Original tool bag, tools, jack, and jack rods
Headliner is perfect
Original carpet in good condition
Only a minor bit of surface rust by the driver’s side rocker. This can easily be cleaned off.
Original chrome accents are bright and shiny
Original 4-speed manual transmission shifts smooth
4WD high and low functions perfectly
Engine runs strong – no issues
Clutch is in perfect shape
Heater (front and rear) works great
Newer tires with less than 5,000 miles on them
Original window sticker and check list that Toyota used before shipping from Japan included
This is an extremely original and clean one owner Land Cruiser – you’d be hard pressed to find one as clean!
Horn, knobs, switches, lights, windshield washer squirters (windshields and head light squirters) all work perfectly
Original trouble light still in original packaging
Carpet is a 8/10 and is very clean all around – I had it detailed and they cleaned the carpets
New wiper blades all around
New tail light lenses
Non-smoker and non pet-owner. Interior is very clean and smells nice 🙂
Here is the list of the service completed in the past 70,000 miles:
200,556 – New wipers (all three) – $28.97
200,500 – New interior all weather floor mats – $20.00
200,600 – New rear tail light lenses, driver’s side marker lens, and passengers side turn signal lens – $133.62
200,436 – Newer used tires installed and balanced (Kelly A/T 31×10.5×15 with 90% tread life left; replaced worn out 235/75R15 radials) – $104.00
136,000 – Rotor cap, service battery, flush radiator, new plugs – $168.36
136,135 – Oil change – $28.94
Here is what this Cruiser currently needs:
The paint is in very good condition and very clean. It’s the original paint and has not been repainted. There are a few scratches here and there (which is to be expected with a 30-year-old car). I don’t think it needs a repaint, but it could use some touch ups here and there and a good buffing/waxing.
Alignment – $60
Minor dent on driver’s side near the front (see pics)
Minor crease on rear window hatch (see pics)
Front driver’s seat cushion is torn a bit and dirty and could use a replacement. You can buy original ones from Specter Off Road here or find used ones easily enough – $150
Rear bumper has some dents and the chrome has come off – nice used ones run $200-300 (I have a line on one but it is not included at this price)
Front driver’s arm rest is there, but bent a smidge – $50 for a used one
Original AM/FM Tape deck eats tapes and doesn’t get all the channels – $100 for an OEM AM/FM radio replacement (I have one)
Minor leaks from the typical places – oil pan and rear main seal. Doesn’t need immediate attention and this is very typical for Land Cruisers.
Air conditioning not working – unsure of the issue. A new a/c compressor is about $300 from Oreilly Auto Parts
It’s passed emissions in the past, but where I live in Colorado this is not required. I feel confident it will pass, but I cannot guarantee this. Some of the smog equipment has been unhooked for the Weber carb set up, but it’s all still there and can be hooked back up. See pics for detail on the smog equipment.
NOTE: I’m happy to work with the buyer to get all the minor issues worked out after the auction closes, especially the bumper and the arm rest as I already have those found and priced out. I’ve made calls on all of the parts I would look to replace if I were to keep this FJ60 and I’d be happy to help aquire any of the parts and get them added/installed at the buyer’s expense.
Will work with the buyer to have the vehicle shipped. Will also work to pick up the seller at either the Colorado Springs airport or the Denver airport, in case you want to fly in and drive it home.

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!
Recently purchased a 1975 Land Cruiser FJ40 out of Alamosa, Colorado and I’m working to restore the Cruiser back to original condition. Looking to sell the 1969 Chevrolet Impala Engine (out of a police cruiser) that’s currently in there. It runs strong, but one cylinder is misfiring. I ran a compression test and seven of the eight cylinders came back at 120. One didn’t register anything and has an unidentified issue. See video for full details. Block number is 770010. The engine has been pulled out and is ready to be loaded onto your truck or trailer. I have a forklift to put it in your truck.
This 1974 FJ-40 dubbed “Ol’ Blue was a project that needed a new heart! We received Ol’ Blue and she was so tired she would not go faster than 60MPH. So the plan was set, She need some help with the brakes and engine. We wanted to keep it toyota and not do V8 conversion, so our Freaky H.O. 2F was installed with our TBI fuel injection conversion. Making a 150 H.P. to the rear wheels was exciting, 75 MPH was no problem in a 2 block distance. Ol’ Blue then received a full front axle rebuild, disc brake conversion front and rear, bilstien 5100 series shocks, greasable pins and shackles, Pro Comp Lift 2.5”. To keep her cool in the heat she received an Vintage Air A/C conversion and a 3 row aluminum radiator. We added factory wheels, factory hub caps and Toyo 33 x 15.50 x 15 MT Open Country tires! We polished the paint and put in a few new window weatherstripping gaskets to keep the whistling down! Ol’ Blue was and still is one of our favorite customer projects!
That FJ40 bottle jack. It’s a thing of beauty. If you’re lucky enough to have the original one in your Toyota Land Cruiser, then it’s probably been scratched up pretty good under the driver’s seat and could use a bit of a refresh on the paint. That orangish yellowish color can be pretty tricky to nail down. It’s not quite yellow and not quite orange, but somewhere in between.
About a year ago we were restoring a 1977 FJ40 and were lucky enough to come across a bottle jack, both jack handles, and the crank for the handle on Craigslist. The color was pretty faded, so we began the search for the right paint. Sure, we could go down and have a quart of the good stuff mixed up at Dale’s Automotive Paint Supply in Colorado Springs, but then we’re talking $60 and our budget was more like $10 (scope creep on this 77′ LC had definitely set in!).
We hit the spray paint isle in a couple big box stores, namely Home Depot and Wal-Mart, but came up with a big goose-egg. Next stop was Pep Boys, who had a massive selection. We honed in on two different paints and found one that hit the jackpot: Dupli-Color Model # DA1663 “School Bus Yellow” General Purpose Acrylic Enamel (12 oz.).
Back at the shop, we sanded and primed the bottle jack, hand crank, and jack rods. After the y dried, we hung the parts up by a wire and went to town with the School Bus Yellow spray paint. It laid on nice and thick and smooth. After three coats, our old, crappy looking bottle jack was now a thing of beauty!

“The Dog’s Bollocks” 1977 FJ-40 was crafted with the avid wheeler in mind! The customer wanted his FJ-40 Off Road capable as well as street legal. Red Line devised a 102″ Wheel base set up with Spring over axle. Custom front 69″ WMS toyota axle was built to widen the front to add a ton of stability. For the rear axle we went with a FJ-80 rear axle. Red Line converted the engine bay to hold a Mercedes OM617 diesel engine. We mated this OM617 to a Toyota Landcruiser H42 4 speed transmission then a Advance Adapters Rock box and Factory 4 speed transfer case. On the front axle Red Line utilized -High steer arms and chromo axle shafts ! So we tested “The Dog’s Bollocks” and with our steering and SOA set up we achieved a whopping 42″ worth of flex in front and 35″ in rear! Not bad for Toyota leaf springs! “The Dog’s Bollocks” needed some armor after the custom SOA and drivetrain was installed. This was achieved with our Now Avaiable Red line tube fender Kit and FJ-40 Family roll cage kit. This beautiful one of a kind FJ-40 was seen in 4WTO Magazine in 2010! Below are items and conversions that Red Line performed on this Resto Rock Rod! “The Dog’s Bollocks” 1977 FJ-40
