A beautifully restored example of Toyota’s legendary four by four. Fastidiously prepared and a truly outstanding drive. One of the best!
Our featured 1979 FJ40 Hardtop is a wonderful example finished in the evocative shade of Olive Green (code 653) with a white roof. This fabulous truck has been treated to a sympathetic but comprehensive restoration including new many suspension and driveline components. It drives exceptionally well, and we have thoroughly enjoyed putting a few miles on this fine FJ. The body is very good and authentically restored, showing the subtle seams and imperfections it would have had when it left the factory in 1979. This example is equipped with the desirable “ambulance door” arrangement in the back, making ingress and egress easier for rear passengers, and allowing access to the rear without moving the swing-out spare tire. Like the body, the paintwork is very good. It has not been over-restored, but it is very attractive and in a fabulous original color that suits the rugged styling very well. Exterior trim is correctly restored; the painted bumpers and white painted grille surround keeping in line with the basic, sturdy appeal. Nice details such as the Japanese Koito headlamps point to the level of care given this outstanding FJ.
