So I'm curious...what did these FJs and BJs cost new?

It's all in the title...

How much were these trucks sold for in the 70s and 80s off the lot? Were they a deal at the time or was the Toyota tax added on?

Canada or USA doesn't matter.


Thanks,

Warren
 
I have the window sticker from my 1974 but the price was torn off. Google has many original stickers if you search. 1974 was around $6400 new.
 
by the 80's fj40's were in the 12K range and they were not selling(hence the low # imported to the US), interest rates were close to 20%, gas prices were high and toyota had the mini truck.

in the mid 60's they are 3-4K depending

I remember reading that the newly introduced Mustang was priced around $3500 new in 64/65.

Reading above comparing a '78 to an early '80s the price doubled? Tarifs? WTF?

The early 80's interest rate spike.... there was also a gas spike in the early 70's IIRC.

I wonder what the premium was for a diesel; maybe that'd be a Canadian thing.
 
7% inflation then to now
 
2/'75 40, bought new for a flat $6,000. This included a dealer installed Con-Fer...which now goes back & forth between my 40 & 60.
 
There is a great ih8mud thread called "Show off you Original Window Sticker!" that might help here. :)

I paid $5k for my 40 in 95. PO stated at the time it went for $5976.00 when it was new in 76.
Unfortunately I never received a window sticker to back that up. :cheers:
 
Mine. Check out the typical fuel mileage. :rofl:
