1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Frame off restoration (March 2015)..Please read carefully:
1978, the last year of the classic round bezel and most sought after in those models. The restoration started with a cosmetic overhaul after all mechanical checks and maintenance. The whole truck was disassembled piece by piece and attended to. The rear tub was replaced with an aluminum aqualu tub upgrade ($5000) manufactured in worries of ever rusting! (The FJ tubs were susceptible to rust especially at the rocker panels, rear sill, and rear quarters due to poor quality sheet metal.) All new Toyota OEM replacements were used when available. Engine bay is all original with the exception of the carburetor which is a Weber. If you are a purist, I can easily put an original one back on. Engine fires right up without the need of the choke. The original 2F 4spd engine has less than 100K miles, runs extremely strong, and cruises comfortably down the road. All cylinders passed compression tests. All smog components are still in tact (just not attached). Truck runs a lot better and breathes better without this increasing hp. This can be easily reconnected if your state requires it (CA). I had my friend who is a master Toyota tech for Town and Country Toyota (Charlotte) spend 4 weeks fine tuning this vehicle.
Tires are all new 33" BFG Mud Terrains. Just added a new Optima battery and muffler. All new OEM weather stripping, emblems, correct stainless steel hardware, door run channels, etc. Seats have been re-upholstered with all new CCOT leather covers exact to Toyota specs. Suspension includes a 3.5" lift kit with OME springs and RC shocks. The original radio in dash was left for classic appeal and value, but a JVC Bluetooth CD player was added in addition to a Tuffy console box. The 3 Stage paint is absolutely expense spared on the meticulous paint job.
