“Green Machine” 77 FJ-40 Conversion Project

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

SOLD! Used Chevy V8 – FJ40 – Perfect for V8 Conversion

SOLD on RED LINE!

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.
