1980 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Soft-Top For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Arizona event, 16 - 17 January 2020. Estimate:$60,000 - $80,000 Freshly restored and offered in immaculate conditionPresented with less than 100 kilometers since restorationFinished in factory colors of Olive Green over brownThe premier and iconic FJ40 The Toyota Land Cruiser has become an icon of all-wheel drive and the all-terrain vehicle segment of the hobby. They were offered in various wheelbases along with several different styles, including a pickup as well as hard and soft-top configurations. Even a station wagon was available with seating up to seven passengers. Both Toyota gasoline and Hino diesel engines were eventually offered, though most were equipped with gasoline-powered “F-series” inline six-cylinder engines, such as this example. The model continues to exist today and is Toyota’s longest-running nameplate.This FJ40, finished in the wonderful exterior color of Olive Green over a brown vinyl interior, is fresh from a comprehensive restoration by Restoring Legends. Notably, the company has been restoring FJs for over a decade with technicians specialized in the model. They have been tasked with over 100 restorations and are part of a business group that has distributed the Toyota brand for more than 50 years. Photos thoroughly document the process for each and every single component. The restoration process took more than 1,800 man-hours, done by experienced technicians with the help of the latest technology and tools in order to achieve an exceptional result.Since restoration, the car has been driven less than 100 kilometers. Further, with regards to its interior, exterior, and undercarriage, the car is in near immaculate condition. According to the data tag, the Land Cruiser is finished in its original factory color, which is seldom seen compared to the more common shades. The Toyota is powered by the correct 2F 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine, which is coupled to a four-speed manual transmission. The car utilizes Old Man Emu suspension and rides on aggressive but appropriate Dick Cepek Extreme Country tires, suitable for any off-road terrain. This FJ40 is equipped with a period air-conditioning system, power steering, and power brakes, making it much easier to drive and much more livable than most vintage Land Cruisers. It is in recent years that the humble 4×4 has become something of a must-have collectible. However, in the world of vintage Broncos, Jeeps, and Land Rovers, the Land Cruiser stands alone. This FJ40 is no exception and would make a fine addition to any enthusiast’s collection.Please note that the title is in transit.
