1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Left Front Quarter

A desirable ambulance-door FJ40, subject of a fully documented, nut-and-bolt restoration by a marque enthusiast. Sensibly upgraded with power steering, air conditioning, and more. A truly outstanding example of Toyota’s iconic 4×4.​

Our featured 1978 Toyota FJ40 rides on the most popular 90” short-wheelbase chassis, equipped with the factory two-door hardtop body. This truck also features the desirable “ambulance door” rear treatment, allowing for easy access to the rear jump seats. In 2006, this truck received a body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration performed by a passionate FJ enthusiast from the Pacific Northwest. He painstakingly documented the entire process, assembling an impressive binder of photos, records, and stacks of receipts for the host of new-old-stock parts used on the project. Today, this gorgeous FJ40 presents in excellent condition throughout, having seen only light use in the hands of collectors since completion of the restoration. Finished in Toyota Beige (464) with a white roof, the body presents in superb order. The restorer used factory new and new-old-stock panels exclusively, and the body remains stock with the only exception being the fitment of a Warn 8000lb winch. It is straight and tidy, with excellent paint and factory appropriate panel fit and finish.​
