FULLY CUSTOM BUILT 1965 TOYOTA FJ40 LAND CRUISER!
RUST FREE,CALIFORNIA TRUCK WITH AN AWESOME LOOK. IT LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE THE "HERO" CAR IN A MOVIE. YOU WILL NOT FIND ANOTHER LIKE THIS ONE. IT IS TRULY A VERY UNIQUE TRUCK!
Here is a very early (1965) Toyota FJ40 that has undergone an extensive mechanical restoration while keeping the very unique California desert patina. It is unbelievable how solid this truck is. There is no rust or rot whatsoever. The Chevrolet V8 conversion was done professionally and mated with a more modern Toyota 4 speed manual transmission which is matched with the rare Ranger AA Split Gearbox which allows you to choose a "High" and a "Low" for every gear. It also has power steering and disc brakes, so unlike these stock FJ's, it has plenty of power and enough gear range to cruise on the highway at 80 MPH effortlessly, and then throw it in four wheel drive and this thing will climb up a vertical wall.

It's a 1965 with the correct matching early corrugated top and guillotine-style rear doors. It is rust free with a very unique patina showing through. All of theFrame is in perfect shape, as is the tub. It is in really amazing condition overall. A custom Roof Rack was installed, matching Jerry gas cans and a set of high-powered Off Road Lights.
Interior is in excellent shape! The dash is uncut and original and it even has the 4 Wheel Drive instruction sticker.Factory gauges and controls with several custom gauges to support the new Chevrolet 350 V8 crate motor.The front seats are early Toyota Celica Supra leather buckets. They are very comfortable and offer a lot of support off roading, and they also look great and match the metallic grey paint. The floor has been rhino-lined and a new, custom fabricated roll cage has been installed.
Under the hood is a Chevy 350 crate engine, mated to a Ranger AA 27% overdrive split gearbox and backed by a later-model Toyota 4-speed manual transmission and the factory transfer case.The 4WD high and low work perfectly, and both axles have Aussie lockers inthem. The truck has brand new 34" Super Swampers on it, with maybe 1000 miles on them. Truck was converted to Saginaw power steering so it is very easy to drive. It also has disc brakes in the front. Cruises 80mph down the freeway without a problem thanks to the V8 and the split gearbox. And this truck will go absolutely anywhere you point it. With the locked differentials and the V8, it'll climb up a wall. It's a tremendously capable truck, farmore sothan most will ever need short of hardcore rock climbers.
Truck includes the accessories - the roof rack is strong and will support hundreds of pounds, the rear tire carrier is stout, and the matching jerry cans are handy and are pretty nice to have.
