1977 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

The vehicle has literally no rust, as it was purchased originally in Bakersfield, CA, and spent the rest of its life in Arizona, where it currently resides. The vehicle has had no accidents, all of the body panels are straight, and the fenders are uncut. I have all of the original equipment items, including the owners manual, and the repair history of the truck since new. It is so complete, that I even have the original hub caps, inspection light, jack, and factory AM radio. The only significant modification to the vehicle was the addition of factory air conditioning, and a 140 amp alternator. I have all of the original parts to return it to stock.

General Comments and Impressions

This vehicle was recently sold to my good friend Doron. He is keeping it safe and original, and has promised my first right before he sells it!
