It is time to sell my 5/73 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. The body is straight, and the only rust is in the rear sill and a half inch hole where the factory fuel tank used to be. The rear quarters are comp cut and the front fenders have been cut as well. It has a Kayline soft top and BestTop 2-piece doors that do not leak.

The engine is a Chevy 350 4 bolt main with Holly Pro-Jection and a thumper cam. Transmission is a SM420 mated to a 203 low range box to a Land Cruiser “3-spd” transfer case. Front axle is a built Toyota 8” with 5.29 gears, no-slip locker, 30-spline RCV axle shafts with 300m inners, 300m hub gears, and high steer. Rear axle is Toyota 9.5” semi-float with 5.29 gears and a LocRite locker. Tires are 36” radial Iroks (50% tread) on steel “street lock” wheels.

Front suspension is OME HD Hilux front springs and Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks. Rear suspension is Jeep Cherokee (XJ) leaf springs with Revolver shackles and Skyjacker shocks. All new wiring with weatherproof fuse block, fuel cell with sending unit, VDO gauges with GPS Speedo, MetalTech Jackson cage tied to the frame, Warn M8000 winch, MetalTech nose guard, modified factory heater / defrost, Saganaw power steering, and a bunch more that I’m forgetting.

Everything works and it is very reliable, but it was set up as a trail rig, so it was built with function over form. This 40 does drive amazing on the street. It doesn’t wander or have any death wobble. However, if you are planning on doing much highway driving, you may want to put a taller gear ratio in the axles. Asking $8500 or best offer and it comes with all my extra parts including Montero folding rear seats, GM tilt steering column, and new OEM Toyota parts.

Cool trail rig. Kind of chopped meat with the rear quarters & fenders-chopped suey could be a nickname.
But this would be good if someone wanted a crawler with high clearance. Good luck

Thanks! I was planning on putting stock fenders (or MetalTech tube fenders) on it and BudBuilt quarters. It would look great and add a lot of value, but I have a new baby so my time is limited for doing anything on it.

That would really jazz it up. I took a spin through the build thread. Any pics of the current interior or the new fuel cell? I couldn’t find any In that thread.

I really need to get her out of the garage and cleaned up for better pics, but life keeps getting in the way... Here is what I happen to have on my phone:

LOL! No, it just had seat covers on them. (Which are included.) It also comes with rear seats from a Montaro if wanted. The front seats are ugly, but they are comfy.
