Nut & Bolt Resto FJ40 Cruises to the Auction Block
Frame-up FJ40 restoration features many OEM parts, repainted in its original (and rare) Nebula Green over Mandarin.
Toyota has had quite a few hits over the decades, like the Camry, MR2, and Hilux. The big dog over these feats is, of course, the Land Cruiser. The first models were built for the United States Army to help them handle the business of fighting and transport during the Korean War, leading to the birth of an icon.
One of the most popular versions of the Land Cruiser happens to be the J40 Series, such as this 1967 FJ40 cruising to the auction block at RM Sotheby’s next happening in Fort Lauderdale, Florida March 29 through 30.
This FJ40 was restored in Florida, having no rust to speak of prior to its rebuild. The nut-and-bolt project was done with factory-correct OEM parts all around, then repainted in its original (and rare) Nebula Green over Mandarin.
Even the FJ40’s F135 engine, transmission, and transfer case were fully rebuilt, looking as spectacular and ready to hit the trail as it did in the showroom so many years ago.
And of course, the clean, polished interior is such a welcoming place, you’ll want to live there as much as possible. Your friends will certainly love the rear jump seats, too.
This FJ40 is so pristine that it would almost pain us to take it off-roading. And yet, it would be wrong to not go on an adventure or two with a fine example of Toyota’s legacy.
