Please message me with questions at: firstname.lastname@example.org . Beautiful Rust Free 1977 FJ40 with Power Steering
Details & Condition
This truck is in superb condition. She needs nothing! You will NOT find diamond plate, fender flares, CB antenna,
jerry cans, roof racks, or a V8. The Toyota 2F inline six cylinder was rebuilt by Race Engine Design in Georgia and
runs out beautifully! Power steering from JT Outfitters has recently been added. The clutch, transmission and
transfer are smooth and work perfectly. The truck has stock 4.11 gears. The body, undercarriage and frame are rust
free and the paint work is outstanding. The truck has been de-smogged and under the hood you will find the original
2F inline six cylinder with a Weber 38 carb, electronic ignition and ceramic headers which give the truck the power
you need to cruise at 70MPH if you like. All body panels were taken to bare metal and there is no rust here.
Over the last 10 years the truck hasn't been driven more than a few thousand miles and it's previous owners have
replaced, refurbished or restored just about everything on her. Window felts, weatherstripping, hard top gasket,
upholstery, seat belts, headliner, dash pad, emblems, mirrors, front and rear signals, hood hooks, wheels, new Warn
hubs, new BFG tires, hubcaps, winch, suspension, shocks, exhaust, all stainless steel fasteners, etc. The axles
have been gone though and there is literally thousands of dollars worth of receipts to look over.
The horizontal surfaces of the floors have had LineX professionally applied and you can rest assured that the
sheet metal under that lining is in the same great condition as the rest of this FJ40. The floors are covered with
a very nice heavy duty custom fitted mats from Cool Cruisers. The interior is excellent and EVERYTHING works, as it
should. The heater works well, turn signals, hazards, headlight high and low beams, wipers, taillights, backup
lights, license plate lights, odometer, speedometer, fuel, oil, amp and temp gauges all work perfectly.
The audio system consists of a Panasonic AM/FM/CD with free standing 6x9 speakers enclosures in back. The stock
metal console sits between the reupholstered front seats. The jump seats in the rear have new upholstery as well.
The headliner has been replaced with the correct material. Under it all you will find the 2.5" TPI Smokey Mountain
suspension with new bushings, greasable shackles an new shocks. New Toyota 15 inch steel wheels and hubcaps with
new WARN locking hubs surrounded by new 33 x10.50 BFG tires. Hanging on the swing out rear tire carrier is the
matching spare and below that you will find an extra wide custom made rear step with built-in 2" receiver.

There's an automotive axiom that claims it's more fun to drive a slow car fast, than a fast car slow. If that's the case, then pushing a Toyota Sports 800 around must be one of the most exhilarating experiences behind the wheel in the world. With just 800cc of displacement from a two-cylinder boxer engine, the focus is on finesse over outright speed. Still, it's a fantastic page in Toyota's performance history, and Petrolicious takes a ride with a man who owns a meticulously restored 1967 example in its latest video.
The Sports 800 used the classic cost-saving strategy in the auto industry of taking parts from a standard model in the lineup and modifying it into a sports car. In this case that meant borrowing the engine from the plebian Toyota Publica, beefing it up for more power and clothing the whole thing a in beautifully shaped, wind-tunnel-honed body.
The look of these lithe, targa roadsters is the exact opposite of the rather dull styling sometimes associated with Toyota today. Everywhere you look there are louvers, vents or curves to draw the eye. Check out the latest Petrolicious video for a detailed look at the history of this rare model that's largely unknown on this side of the Pacific.
The Lexus GX and the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, which isn't sold in the US, have gone without visual updates since the current generation was launched in 2009. But what appear to be patent filing sketches and pictures of the sibling sports utility vehicles' mid-cycle updates have been leaked on a Russian Land Cruiser Club forum.
Major changes to the GX's front end will be made to incorporate Lexus' signature grille. Gone are the awkwardly shaped headlamps and the soft-looking triple-slat grille. The sketch shows the Lexus with a new bumper, lower-profile headlights and a more aggressive, angular grille with one more slat and a gaping lower air-intake opening. The vehicle's profile looks unchanged, but the rear bumper will be reshaped slightly to fit new, better-integrated horizontal reflectors.
The Toyota gets a handful of styling updates as well, including a new front bumper with higher-profile headlamps that look a bit out of place to us. The Prado's profile also looks unchanged, but the rear end gets restyled taillights and a reshaped license-plate enclosure.
Introduced at the end of 2006, this is the last year for the Toyota FJ Cruiser, the reincarnated FJ40-series Land Cruiser that will shortly journey to Takama-ga-hara, the Plain of High Heaven. In its first model year, we drove it to SEMA and found it, shall we say, coarse. It bobbled on the freeway and droned in the cabin, its boxy interior providing four bounce-boards for unpleasant frequencies. Tall mirrors helped one work around the eclipse of vision aft of the B-pillars, but navigating traffic required forethought and technique. Its turning circle was measured in kilometers. For the first two years of its life, it needed premium gas. It may have been fun to look at, but we couldn't wait to get out of it.
That's not the case anymore, and now the FJ Cruiser is poised to join a long list of vehicles that got better and better, then got axed.
