1981 Japanese factory hardtop 2F model with matching numbers finished in factory Royal Blue. We could only find a little paintwork patina commensurate with use and age of restoration. Largely standard with the addition of some thoughtful and tasteful upgrades to keep the look original. Fitted with power steering (not all were) and 16' powder coated FJ40 steel rims in the correct mid-grey shod with Dunlop Wrangler tyres that offer the perfect ride. The spare is unused. Free-lock hubs are fitted to the front. Complemented with Old Man Emu dampers and modest lift kit, providing a slightly firmer ride than stock whilst giving a better ride height at the rear to level the truck. Wheel arches and undercarriage received an underseal rust protection layer prior to painting. Royal Blue is a colour that suits these FJ40 well. Ice-cold period airconditioning is fitted as well as piping hot heater to screen and cabin (very few FJ40 offered for sale in the UK have heaters!) This is one of 3 hardtop versions in the UK that we have offered in this colour and we don't know of any others. Interior is smart with the original material on the front seats and matching new material on the side facing bench seats. Being a later 1981 FJ40 there are a few nice details that differ from the earlier 2F Fj40 that set this one apart. The truck drives beautifully too, and with disc brakes up front stops straight and true. In short, this is a fantastic FJ40 and priced keenly considering the lovely condition.
