This 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser is a soft-top model that was restored by the seller’s shop in Colombia prior to being imported to the US in June 2019. The work included replacement of the tub from the firewall back, a body-off repaint in blue, refinishing of the frame, and interior refreshment as well as replacement of the soft top, carburetor, wheels, and tires. Power is from a rebuilt 4.2-liter 2F inline-six paired with a three-speed manual gearbox and a two-speed transfer case, and Old Man Emu suspension components have been installed along with a Kenwood stereo and Vintage Air HVAC unit. This FJ40 is offered at no reserve with restoration photos and a clean Alabama title in the seller’s name.
The seller states that the body was replaced from the firewall back using a steel tub as well as new fenders and doors. The truck then received a body-off repaint in blue, and a fresh soft top with roll-up sides was installed.
Grey-painted 15” steel wheels wear chrome hubcaps and 33″x10.5″ BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM3 tires, all of which are new according to the seller. The front wheels are mounted on manually-locking hubs, and a matching spare is located out back.
The interior was refreshed with new seat frames and gray upholstery. A Kenwood stereo has been added to the body-colored dashboard, and an air conditioning system from Vintage Air is mounted underneath.
A stock steering wheel frames a replacement factory gauge cluster housing a 160-km/h speedometer as well as an odometer that shows less than two miles. Total mileage is unknown.
The rear cargo area features fold-down troop-style seating as well as a vinyl floor mat, which is shown removed in the photo above.
The 4.2-liter 2F inline-six sends power to the rear or all four wheels through a three-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The powertrain was rebuilt by the seller’s shop, and photos from the work are provided in the gallery below. A new carburetor and four-row radiator have been installed, and the brake and clutch hydraulic systems were replaced according to the seller.
Old Man Emu shocks and a steering stabilizer have been added, and the frame is said to have been checked for straightness before being sandblasted and repainted in black.
Several photos showing various stages of the cosmetic and mechanical refurbishment are viewable in the gallery. A walk-around driving video are attached below.
