1981 Japanese factory hardtop 2F model with matching numbers finished in factory Royal Blue. Slightly older chassis off restoration which has seen careful dry weather use since completion. This vehicle is one of two we have to offer you coming directly from a private collection. The condition is impressive all round, with a perfect chassis and we're told it has only ever been out in dry weather. We could only find a few paintwork blemishes commensurate with use and age of restoration, patina rather than anything that detracts. Largely standard with the addition of some thoughtful and tasteful upgrades to keep the look original. Fitted with power steering (not all were) and 15 inch one-piece Australian Daytona aftermarket FJ40 rims shod in beefy BF Goodrich Mud Terrain TA tyres that suit the truck well and really offer a great stance and planted feel. There is also an option of grey 16' one piece steel rims with 215/80 tyres for an original factory look available in place of the Daytona rims currently fitted. 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. 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.
