Auction Block: 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

It’s not every day that we come by an FJ40 that exceeds our expectations, and even more rare when that legendary platform is over four decades old. The prominent vehicle reseller, Bring a Trailer, recently listed an impeccably-kept 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 with enough upgrades to satiate even the most parched 4×4 enthusiast — and with only 21,000 miles on the odometer, it stands apart as one of the best-looking examples we’ve ever seen.

The FJ40 in question was purchased by the current owner as a partially completed project just over a year and a half ago — since then, it’s undergone an extensive upgrade process that has garnered its 3.9-liter 1F inline-six and column-shifted, 3-speed manual transmission a significant amount of notoriety among its peers. The outdoor-oriented vehicle utilizes Old Man Emu shocks and springs, burly aftermarket wheels dressed in BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A tires, and a Weber carburetor to get it where it needs to go. But, from the exterior of the vehicle, you’d never guess that it’s participated in any off-road shenanigans, thanks to immaculate dark matte gray, unscathed Specter fender flares, and a seemingly-new set of Hella driving lights. Inside, Recaro-style sport seats, three-point retractable seatbelts, and a custom marine carpeting kit keep things looking just as clean as they do on the exterior. If you’re interested, head over to Bring a Trailer’s website for more information on this one-of-a-kind off-roader.
