1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 Additional Info:

1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 in outstanding original condition. One of the most coveted years of the FJ40s and the classic round bezel. Original stock Inline 6 cylinder, 4.2L, 2F engine and factory 4 speed full synchromesh transmission. Meticulously maintained. Recent full tune up included oil/filter, antifreeze, spark plugs and wires, and Heavy Duty Battery. Only E0 (Ethanol-Free) premium gasoline has ever been used in this engine and it purrs. The exhaust system has been updated with a Tri-Mil Performance Header and dual exhaust out the rear of vehicle. Brakes work perfectly. (Emergency Brake, and interior "Brake" light, too). Factory "Selectro" locking hubs, four wheel drive, 2 speed transfer case (both High and Low) work perfectly. Factory suspension front to back, all original running gear except the heavy duty shocks. 5 old-school Buckshot Radial Mudders on all 5 Toyota original wheels and factory hubcaps (spare too), with 90% tread.
Body is uncut, unmolested and original. Original paint Toyota #309 Freeborn Red, except for touching up rock chips and scratches. Paint is thin on the hood, windshield frame, doors, hardtop, etc. I've left the patina as it adds to it's rugged character. (And everyone loves it). And it still has most of it's original pinstriping. Factory decals under the hood, driver's side door jam and rear seats. Every factory spot weld is visible, and the entire vehicle has 2 fresh coats of wax on it. It has factory undercoating which has preserved the entire underside. The factory front bumper holds the vintage Heavy Duty TX2 8000 LB. winch (comes with remote) and vintage fog lights that work perfectly. (Also comes with a John Dunbar Inc. Tow-Bar that attaches to the front bumper for towing, see picture). Stock rear bumperettes and vintage rear step in the rear. Also comes with a hitch that installs with 4 bolts(included) and 2" ball for towing. Has the "old-school" 4 prong light adapter, front and back, for towing or being towed.
Interior is in excellent condition. Original seats (front and back) have no rips or tears in them. Rear seats have their straps that hold them up when not in use, and all 4 seats have their original working seat belts. The headliner and visors are excellent ( no rips or tears). Original factory front floor mat is like new. (Rear mat is excellent as well). All gauges, lights, high-beam indicator light, heater, fan, rear heater, defrost, wipers, windshield washer squirter, "beep-beep" horn, interior light, lighter, seat belts, windows, doors and locks work as they should. All glass is original and have the TEQ logo and Temperlite stamped on them. The dash has never been drilled out. Switches for the fog lights and off-road lights are all nicely mounted in the factory holes in the dash. The factory emergency glove box light is in the glove box and has the original emergency light plug-in. Factory roll-bar, with original pads. Comes with the original bottle jack under the driver's seat, and original jack handle bars behind the rear seat in their proper homes. (see pics.). Also comes with the TEQ Toyota Motor Co. factory tool kit bag which includes: Toyota Motor Co. Lug Wrench, Toyota pliers, 12 and 14mm open-end Toyota wrenches, Toyota spark plug tool, Toyota 250mm Angle Wrench, Jack wrench/crank handle and reversible phillips/flat standard screwdriver. Sony AM/FM Digital Stereo with CD player, clock, and Ipod (Ipod included)! Removeable face and storage case for it. No speakers are currently installed as I use my phone and earplugs. USB adapter for cigarette lighter included as well as the original AM radio...and it works!! (see pictures).
The Con-Ferr style roof/safari rack holds 4 off-road halogen navigator lights, (hard covers included), vintage Forest King wooden axe, and shovel. It is easily removed with 6 nuts and by unplugging the lights. The top comes off with 22 bolts (see pictures). Side and rear ambulance doors are removable as well. Windshield folds down and hooks to the hood (see picture). Tailgate installs easily and holds the factory rear license plate holder for driving around with the top off legally. 2 factory installed Jerry/Gas cans come with the locking gas can holder and locks (spout too). There is also a Vintage FJ40 Bimini/Bikini Top with all the hardware that comes with the vehicle.(see picture). Vehicle is always stored with a full "Big Cut" car cover(included) that comes with storage bag and straps.
