Border Reivers are thrilled to be offering this wonderfully Cool Land Cruiser FJ40 in right hand drive.

Delivered new to Bali, Indonesia, this 1978 model year FJ40 would enjoy the kind tropical climate,where salt is put on food, not the roads.

Fully UK registered & restored to an incredibly high standard in its original colour. This FJ 40 is the iconic two-door Hard Top configuration. The result today is nothing short of breathtaking; the Land Cruiser appears as if it has just driven out of a 1970’s Toyota sales brochure that boasts of its 4-Wheel-Drive capabilities

This stunning 7 seater FJ had none of the usual rust associated with its British equivalents. Restored to a better than new finish all over, study the images, its as clean on the underside as the top with a full mechanical rebuild. Smooth 4.2-litre straight-six is on the button

How cool is this, ideal for city cruising or some serious puddle jumping. Totally classless. What a Colour. It comes with air conditioning & the interior is immaculate all refinished in its factory correct black leatherette.

Being a 1978 its road tax exempt, mot exempt & its also exempt from the London T-charge being a historic vehicle & from 7th Sept 2020, all historic vehicles will be exempt from the ULEZ. The 24/7 zone will have the same borders as the current Congestion Charge Zone.

4,230cc OHV Inline 6-Cylinder Engine

Single Carburetor

135bhp at 3,600rpm

4-Speed Manual Transmission

The Toyota Land Cruiser, in its many sizes and configurations, has had a long and successful history of reliable service through the most rugged of conditions. Patterned after the ubiquitous Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser demonstrated that Toyota could produce much more than just economical cars.

Introduced in 1960, the FJ40 and its variants remained in production for a quarter century, the kind of longevity that demonstrates true value, quality and utility. They became indispensable in unsettled and remote areas of the world, hauled safaris through Africa, developed a devoted following among America’s off-road culture and have spawned a host of imitators. Toyota itself paid its homage to the model in 2004 when it introduced the retro-styled FJ Cruiser to capitalize on the continuing image and popularity of the Land Cruiser some twenty years after the original’s production run ended.

It was Toyota’s best-selling model in the United States between 1961 and 1965, an easy accomplishment since it was the only new Toyota sold in the US during those years. The F in FJ refers to the Type F engine and the J stands for Jeep, meaning the more generic WWII-borne use of that term and not the brand Jeep currently owned by Fiat Chrysler. The 40 refers to the displacement of the inline-six engine and the Land Cruiser name was conceived in 1954 by Toyota technical director Hanji Umehara who said: “I had to come up with a name for our car that would not sound less dignified than those of our competitors.

The Land Cruiser’s popularity and utility is reflected in the number of variants in which it was built. There were in fact so many that it is probably impossible to identify all of them, but they came in short, medium, long and extra-long wheelbase, with a variety of roofs, half cabs, soft tops and doors, with four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. They climb mountains, cross deserts, ford rivers, balance their way over rock falls – they are one of the archetypical utility vehicles and today finding a good vintage example can be difficult.
