1976 Restored Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43
Why This Car Is Special
The restored 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 like the one we have here at Skyway Classics is the model designation for a Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series made from 1960 until 1984.
This 1976 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 was acquired by the seller in Colombia, where it is said to have been refurbished before being imported to the US. It is finished in red over gray vinyl upholstery, and it is powered by a 4.2-liter 2F inline-six linked with a four-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case.
Additional equipment includes 15″ steel wheels, locking front hubs, a tan soft top, and a pintle hitch.
FJ40s are simply fun, and highly collectable and had a short wheelbase but these Toyotas proved to be of the great vehicles designed for off-roading.
It is in superb condition, looks great, and in amazing condition and a representation of what it looked like when it was brand new.
