1974 Toyota Land Cruiser $30,000

Red · 6 Cylinder

Up for sale is my beloved 1974 Toyota FJ40 with a 1F engine, 3 speed on the floor transmission.

This vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition and the body is sharp with a driver quality paint job. It has been pampered in a garage and is my dependable daily driver on any non-rainy days. The vehicle has been upgraded with front disk brakes and power steering which was not available until later models. When this is your daily driver, these luxuries make a big difference! The vehicle easily cruises at 65 mph without issue. Front and rear heater work. Four wheel drive works as it should. This is a coveted North American edition.

Things you should know:

1974 was the last year of the lift-up hatch (much better than ambulance doors), the 1F engine and the 3 speed transmission. I personally love all three.

I spent a minor fortune making sure there are no fluid leaks - Mission accomplished.

The odometer, gas gauge, oil temp and oil pressure gauges do not work in the gauge cluster, but there has been an oil temp, oil pressure and gas gauge added to the vehicle that do work. The oil temp and pressure gauges are installed professionally in the dash the gas gauge is installed externally. The side marker lights, rear heater fan and cigarette lighter are not hooked up. Everything else works as it should.

The top is in good condition but could use some work as it leaks. I rarely drive in rain so this was not a high priority fix for me.

If you are a Land Cruiser purist, this is probably not the vehicle for you. In addition to the gauges in the dash, the bench seat was from an earlier model. 74 was the first year of bucket seats. I prefer the bench for the vintage look. Additionally, it has a 4 inch lift and 33 inch tires, also not stock.

Truck comes with original air filter, soft doors and bikini top.
