6.0L LS V8
This 1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is a fully restored restomod that offers the perfect mix of vintage and new. After all, this classic 4x4 has a timeless look, and all the reinforcements to live up to its go-anywhere reputation. There have also been terrific upgrades, like A/C, four-wheel disc brakes, and a 6.0-liter fuel-injected V8 heart.
One look at this 4x4 and you just want to go on an expedition. After all, the classic Dune Beige with white on top makes this look like it\'s fresh from an African safari. And this has all the right pieces to be useful out in the wilderness. The front bumper is a beefy ARB unit with a bull bar, and the rear has been upgraded to a unit that features a swing-away mount for both the full-sized spare and the carrier basket. But take a moment to dig deeper on this Land Cruiser. It\'s a full build with less than 1,400 miles since completion. They invested heavily to take this one down to details like the bolts and door handles. And you can recognize the quality in the way the new glass is clear and the time taken to get the panels laser-straight. And the deep luster of the paint has been ceramic coated to be both robust and shining. So while all Land Cruisers are vintage and robust, this is the one that can go straight from the trail to the head of the valet line.
The interior was upgraded for both function and comfort. For example, the floor has rugged liner paint. And while the classic jump seats are still in place, there is a more comfortable set w/seatbelts (it is removable.) It proves to you that there was extra care that went into the layout of this FJ, and the thoughtfulness is really seen up front. The classic bench seat is gone, and now you have high-back bucket seats with modern bolstering. There\'s an armrest center console in-between that\'s also a lockbox. There are features you never thought you could get on a classic Land cruiser, like R134a air conditioning and cruise control. And the grippy sports steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column so that you get a clear view of the upgraded Dakota Digital full gauge package.
Under the hood is a terrific upgrade to a modern LS-based V8 package. This fuel-injected 6.0 motor. It was built for robust power with a high-rise aluminum intake, 102mm throttle body, and high flow fuel rails. You can also spot the right supporting components, like a serpentine belt system, an Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The full presentation is just as fresh as the interior and exterior. But the most impressive freshness is the undercarriage. You can really see they were not kidding when talking about taking this one down to the bolts during the restoration. Plus, you have an Old Man Emu suspension kit, a proper two-speed 4x4 transfer case, and BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires. And when you\'re just taking this Toyota out on the pavement, the four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes are handy features, too.
This is that amazingly thoughtful build that gives you the old-school look you love and all the modern features you demand. So if you want the best all-around FJ restomod, you know this is the one. Call today!!!
