Auction Block: 1970 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

Oct 6, 2017

Category: Rides

As a continued landmark of all-wheel-drive backcountry exploration, the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser has seen quite the resurgence in recent years. First developed in 1951, the BJ series was first used by the US military during the early production years. Needless to say, even from the get-go, these trucks were built to take a beating. Fortunately for us, this vintage model has since enjoyed a bit of a pampered life thus far.

Completed as a frame-off restoration, this beautifully painted Freeborn Red FJ40 has only logged test mileage since the project was completed back in spring of 2016. Now, it’s ready for auction, complete with a correct black vinyl interior, rear jump seats, a refinished dash, refinished white rims wrapped in new Goodyear tires, power-assisted brakes, and front locking hubs. The engine is also categorized as a “strong runner” and one that drives smooth and reliably. Ready to tackle any weekend expedition and is slated to sell for around $60k on the auction block.
