This Modified Toyota FJ40 Has Undergone A Complete Frame-Off Restoration

First introduced in 1960, Toyota’s FJ40 Land Cruiser is one of a handful of vintage off-road trucks and 4x4s–alongside models like the International Harvester and Ford Bronco—that in recent years have experienced a massive resurgence in interest and popularity, routinely being treated to involved restomod transformations. One such FJ specimen has recently surfaced for sale after undergoing a full frame-off restoration and being bestowed with a myriad of modern aftermarket bits.

Rebuilt exclusively using genuine OEM components, this 1976 example features a factory four-speed transmission, transfer case, differentials, and 2F engine—a 4.2L inline-six good for 135hp and 217ft-lbs of torque–all but the latter of which have been newly rebuilt. Riding on 37” off-road tires, this restomodded FJ also sports numerous dirt-focused upgrades including front ARB air lockers and a rear Detroit locker, power steering and brakes, a Linex-treated Aqualu aluminum tub, a Metal Tech cage, a pair of Corbeau seats, and an ARB “Catcher’s Mask” front bumper. Priced at $46,900, this restored and lightly modified 1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is currently available at Classic Car Studio in St. Louis, Missouri.

Purchase: $46,900
