Description


1981 Japanese factory hardtop 2F model with matching numbers finished in gorgeous and rare Medium Blue. Full chassis off restoration within the last three years and 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 around, with a perfect chassis and again, we're told it has only ever been out in dry weather. Underneath this FJ looks almost factory fresh. We could only find one or two small scratches and blemishes to the paint commensurate with light use. Largely standard with the addition of some thoughtful and tasteful upgrades to keep the look as original as possible. Fitted with power steering (not all were) and 16-inch one-piece steel rims with US market factory hubcaps. Wheels are shod in beefy Hankook Dynapro tyres that suit the truck well and really offer a great stance and planted feel. 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. Medium Blue is a rare colour on these and suits the FJ40 well. As you can see, it is striking in the bright direct sunlight we had these photos taken in to demonstrate, yet without bright sun looks much darker. Needs to be viewed in the flesh to be appreciated! Ice-cold period airconditioning is fitted as well as a piping hot heater to screen and cabin. This particular FJ40 has received some detail mods as championed by 'The FJ Co trucks' in the States. Seats are one piece at the front with stock at the rear. A decent stereo has been fitted with discreet speakers (hard to do well on an FJ40). There is also a custom carpet lining which has protected the perfect paint well (easily removed to return to stock) 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. Fitted with a US market 4 speed box, this one has a slightly more modern feel to the gear change, there is also synchro on first. An aftermarket winch is fitted to the front with custom made cover as well as free locking hubs on the front wheels.
