1974 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

To see 70 pictures go to web site: 1974 Beige GA - Chris Wade - https://chriswade.smugmug.com/1974-Beige-GA

Located just south of Atlanta, GA. $14,000 (404) 819-6943

** Body Condition **
This Land Cruiser belonged to a good friend who was an FJ40 Enthusiast (and a MUD member). Unfortunately after a 2 year battle with Lou Gehrigs disease he has passed away. He asked that I sell his land cruiser for him when he was gone with proceeds to go to his grand children.
I know it was painted many years ago. No rust bubbles present. Finish still looks good as the pictures show. The only top is the bikini top that is on it now. It was not used off road.
The floors front and rear have floor mats screwed down. Looking underneath there is rust through present at rockers in a few areas (overall solid). The rear floor looks to have a small area in the middle that is rusting through (about the size of a coffee can). Frame is solid.

** Interior Condition **
Original seats in place. Seats have been recovered at some point and show no rips or tears. Front 3-point seat belts.

** Mechanical Condition **
Original F engine with 3speed transmission. Odometer shows 57,219 miles. I do not know if it has rolled over or if this is original. When I brought it home it had been sitting for at least 2 years. The gas smelled terrible so I drained it and added fresh fuel. It would run if gas was force fed into carburetor. I determined it was not getting fuel so I changed fuel pump and now it starts and runs pretty well. I have driven it around my subdivision but not on highway. It shifts fine and 4wd engages. 4 Tires are Buckshot K-78 15 MT’s with plenty of tread. Spare is a Goodyear with little tread. 5 OEM wheels and hubcaps. 4 wheel drum brakes. New shocks, exhaust and fuel pump. All lights work except brake lights (the brake light switch under dash is sticking).

***** ID #FJ40162690 This land cruiser is registered and will be sold with a bill of sale. It will come with a Georgia Title NOT in the owners name. It is signed by the previous owner but never changed over. 25 year and older vehicle in Georgia do not need to be titled only registered.

Doing the family a favor and doing right by my friend. I have worked on it a lot all ready. Just not going to take the added time to remove all the fasteners holding the mats to the floors. Priced it low just for these reasons and to sell it fast.
