This week, Canyon State Classics brings to market a freshly restored 1976 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser in White over Black interior with Signus White accents. This 1976 Cruiser was a lifelong dry-climate truck before being purchased by its current owner and beautifully frame off restored. Extra attention was devoted to making sure every nut and bolt was removed and replaced with correct hardware for the time period. This example features a few non-oem modifications that make the truck a bit more capable on road and off! Interior and exterior have remained true to Toyota's timeless design. Look no further if youre looking for the perfect weekend FJ40 that can handle all you can throw at it in stride!
This truck has 4k miles on the restoration and engine/mechanical work. Power comes from a small block 350ci engine that was just freshly rebuilt at time of assembly. It also features period correct after market power steering system and a front disc brake conversion! Suspension has remained mostly true to Toyota with the exception of the front shackle reversal which improves ride feel as well as strengthening the geometry of those components for off-road purposes. This things drives effortlessly with the upgraded brakes and power steering- much easier than a traditional setup on an FJ40! Additionally, LT33x12.50R-15 BF Goodrich All-Terrain tires wrap the polished Pro Comp wheels and the Bilstein shocks was installed. The tires are aggressive and complete the look, but perform fine on the road.
Finally, after all of the mechanical work was finished the car was repainted in its original color of Bright White with correct matching Signus Hard Top. Quite a lot of the glass and all of the exterior trim was removed prior to painting and the result is very good. The interior also received a full restoration from front to back. An aftermarket locking center console has been fitted for extra storage and houses and modern radio. This adds functionality without sacrificing the original look of the interior. The under dash heater unit has been gone through and is fully functional. The seats are comfortable and correct and all interior components have been replaced, or adequately reconditioned . Included with truck is an original tool/ jack equipment. We are happy to assist with a long distance purchase or a local inspection and test drive. We know this car very well at this point.
