RHD 1977 Toyota FJ40 2F Japanese factory hardtop LandCruiser in Nebula green. This is a matching numbers hardtop with the 4200cc straight six petrol engine. The 2F petrol engine is the one to have. Much more refined than the diesel BJ variants or the earlier 1F petrol engine. This 2F petrol engined FJ40 are perfectly suited to country estate driving as well as occasional pottering around the city as they have excellent driving positions and visibility with more comfort over the earlier versions.
This particular FJ40 is largely standard. It has additional power steering and period airconditioning fitted. The aircon has been disconnected but would be easy to reinstate as it is largely still in situ. The heater is piping hot to screen and cabin. This is a slightly older restoration that has obviously been well used and looked after and still presents nicely with a mellow patina. Paint is an attractive shade of green that suits the car well, keeping the vehicle pleasingly period. There are a few blemishes and defects from use in keeping with the age of restoration, but nothing that we think detracts or requires attention.
Underneath the chassis is in excellent shape suggesting that the restoration was done correctly with the body off the chassis. The underside appears to have been undersealed at the time of restoration providing good protection to the floorplans and sills. Wheel wells have also been coated prior to a body colour paint. Wheels are R16 steel split rims with new 235 85 tyres.
We are informed recent work includes a complete brake overhaul, including a new master cylinder, all new wheel cylinders and brake shoes on all four wheels. The carb looks new and there is a new speedometer unit.
There is no backstory or further history available with this vehicle. As always, we highly recommend inspection, as the condition will speak for itself. Sold with current V5 and MOTd for peace of mind although being 1977 it is exempt.
We believe this one is priced fairly at £25,750 + (5%+vat buyer's fee). A shrewd buy for any collection.
