This is a very nice desert metal, California lineage 1976 Toyota FJ40 restored by me about 7 years ago at an Midwestern expense of about $80,000. Stacks of receipts included. I say Midwestern expense as I have very low overhead and do not have a West coast 5 million dollar shop and 10 manscaped mechanics posing for cameras.
I bought this for myself and then a gentleman heard I had it and contracted me to build it for him It had a very clean desert body in mostly original blue paint when I got it. My shop is www.rudy-cjs.com and the core of my business is starting with the best metal I can find...not the cheapest thing to build from or what is easy to get.
It was stripped, blasted and pro recoated the same color as original and rubbed to a show finish it still has today. All weatherstripping replaced. New body bushings All new rubber. Hinges done. Whatever it needed.
Link to build from 2012 here. http://www.rudys-cjs.com/pictorial_of_work_done_examples/rot_free_1976_toyota_fj40_landcruiser_build If it doesn't work, please copy and paste it into your browser. Note that about 80 more photos are gone due to a now defunct photo hosting site.
It had a tired V8 in it so we opted for a new crate 290 HP Small Block Chevy w Howell EFI for easy starts everytime. Behind the engine is a rebuilt HD NV4500 5 speed manual transmission adapted with Advance apaters to the stock resealed transfer case. The differentials have 3.73 gears and Auburn limited slip units. The front also has premium Warn lockouts.
The interior got a pro makeover with custom professionally installed custom seat covers on all 3 seats. The front are heated and the rear is a fold and tumble. All new seat belts. It has a Tuffy security console modified to be the right height to use as an arm rest AND secure valuables. The hard top was refinished as well with new seals, good glass and pro tinting. Also it has a headliner to take away some of the tin can sound an FJ often has.
All gauges work.
A painted to match I-Did-IT aftermarket tilt steering column was installed with great effort!
The rear heater unit was restored and works great.
A new Vintage AIR CONDITIONING unit blows cold like a new car!
Outside new trim items were added along with mirrors, stainless fasteners, a top of the line Warn winch with an air compressor that has never been used
The suspension and steering were rebuilt using top of the line Moog and Old Man Emu. The springs still have the stickers on them and the shackles are greasable. It rides well and steers right with new power steering components. Tires are near new 17" BFG ATs on wheels with no curb rash. The rear tire carrier is swing away and very heavy duty.
This classic FJ needs nothing but a new owner and is only being sold due to low use and retirement by the owner who wants to travel. Rather than have it sit and go bad, he has decided to let it go.
The pricing is at a fraction of the build cost let alone the time IF you could find a starting point this good. We are not looking for hard haggles, trades and will not hold it until you sell something. It is located in Findlay, Ohio with a clean title. Please call me at 614-203-1947 with any questions or to arrange a time to see it. If I don't answer, please leave a message and I will get back to you.
Thank you very much,
