1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 PrivateCars - Naples - 12 views
This 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 was purchased by the seller 16 years ago in California as a project, and subsequent work is said to have included refinishing the body, new bumpers and trim, replacement upholstery, suspension and braking overhauls, and the addition of a Weber carburetor. The truck is finished in tan over a gray vinyl interior and is powered by a 4.2-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer case. Recent service includes a replacement driver-side floor, a new voltage regulator, and fresh fluids. This FJ40 is now offered with service records, the stock carburetor and exhaust header, and a clean Florida title in the seller’s name.
The truck was reportedly finished from the factory in dark green and was repainted tan during a refurbishment performed by the seller. Other work is said to include disassembly and media blasting of the body. The front fender and upper rear quarter panel were replaced during refurbishment. A replacement drip rail was installed on the white fiberglass roof, and additional replaced components include the window seals, windshield, bumpers, stainless steel fasteners, hood latches, badging, and custom mirrors.
15″ painted steel wheels wear polished hub caps and are fitted with 30×9.5″ Kumho Venture MT tires. A spare tire is mounted on a swing-out carrier at the rear. The seller notes that, during the refurbishment, the truck was fitted with replacement suspension components, wheel bearings, and brakes. An alignment was recently performed.
The cabin features reupholstered gray vinyl bucket seats, a locking center console, an Alpine CD stereo, and a replacement headliner, dash pad, carpeting, and seatbelts. Inward-facing rear jump seats have been installed, and the internal roll cage was powder-coated black. Earlier this year, the dome light and temperature gauge were rewired, the horn relay was replaced, and the heater ducting was repaired.
The three-spoke steering wheel fronts instrumentation including a 100-mph speedometer, and gauges for oil, fuel level, temperature, and amperage. The five-digit odometer is stopped at 76k miles, and the seller reports adding approximately 2k miles. Total mileage is unknown.
The 4.2-liter 2F inline-six features an electric fuel pump and is paired with a four-speed manual transmission and dual-range transfer case. A Weber carburetor was fitted in October 2019, and the stock carburetor and exhaust manifold are included in the sale. In preparation for the sale, the fluids were changed, the grounds were refreshed, and the voltage regulator and upper radiator hose were replaced. Service records during current ownership accompany the truck.
While preparing the truck for sale, the seller discovered several previously repaired pinholes in the driver-side floor and elected to have the section of the floor removed and repaired with a replacement floor pan. It was reportedly then finished with computer-matched paint. Photos of the recent work are provided in the gallery below, along with additional underbody photos.
