Auction Block: 1979 Toyota FJ40

Feb 8, 2017

Category: Rides

It’s no surprise Toyota FJs are a coveted off-road vehicle. They’re dependable, backcountry-capable and – especially when outfitted in all black – are a damn good looking truck. Take this 1979 Toyota FJ40 for instance. It’s a truck that’s earned its reputation from decades of romping around in the mud, sand and snow. Now, this rare offering is up for sale. Tempting right?

The FJ40 here features a short wheelbase chassis along with a fixed hardtop and has been completely restored to excellent condition. Under the hood is an inline-six-cylinder 3.9-liter engine that will get you out and over just about any terrain without fail. The FJ also rides atop a set of large off-road Radial tires and a brand new Warn 1000-pound winch up front will get you out of dire straits should you need it. There’s also a dual-range transfer case and locking hubs to keep you trucking along in difficult conditions and climbs. Inside, black upholstery covers all the seating, including the dual side-facing configuration in the back, and front and rear heaters keep everyone warm for the ride. The asking price is set at $39,500. [Purchase]
