The Land Cruiser line up from Toyota is the stuff of legends, driving one gives you the sense of reliability and just braving through anything that gets in your way when venturing off the beaten path. While the modern day land Cruiser is a comfortable cruiser its roots were deep in exploring and pushing to newer heights, much like this unique 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 we have today. Driving around in this Land Cruiser ensures nothing but thumbs up and performance that can raise eyebrows if you do decide to partake in some off roading.
A Land Cruiser fanatic would stop and look closely, the chassis name and the vehicle styling pictured above don’t match, your eyes don’t deceive you. This 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 sports the best of both worlds, 50s styling in the form of a 1953 Land Cruiser BJT20 body and running gear from the legendary FJ40 line up of the 70s. The exterior of this unique vehicle sports a lovely Sand exterior that just boasts 50s on every glance. Ensuring this classic off roader rides high off the ground is a set of steel wheels matched to the exterior color of the vehicle. Step inside and everything resembles the 50s. The barebones interior on this 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 sports a beige theme and is in great shape. The seller reports that the vehicle reportedly sports a new interior with new upholstery as well.
With its exterior and styling throwing it back to the good old days of the Land Cruiser line up its good news in the powertrain department. Under the hood of this 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 is not the inline 6 powertrain from the 50s but from the more than capable FJ line up’s take on inline 6 powertrains. With less weight you can rest assured this classic Toyota is one performance machine, the seller reports that the engine sees a rebuild with a new battery, fuel pump, starter and alternator also being replaced to ensure things run smoothly. Power is sent to all four wheels through a manual transmission the way a true off-roader should. With its increased performance you can also expect greater stopping times thanks to this vehicle sporting new brakes and rotors.
