The Toyota FJ40 series of Land Cruisers have long been renowned for their go-anywhere capabilities. Fueled by a wave of nostalgia, prices for restored examples briefly soared into the stratosphere last year, in some cases, topping six-figures. Today the market seems to have stabilized a bit, but most surviving FJ40s remain priced beyond the reach of those looking for a go-anywhere trail or pasture toy. This 1971 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser, for sale on Hemmings.com, is said to be a one-owner example priced below market value. Sure, it’s a bit rough around the edges, but that’s part of its appeal; unlike a restored rig, you can drive this on tight trails without fear of body damage or brush pinstriping. Assuming the frame is solid, it’s an affordable starting point for a restoration, too, and replacement steel body panels are readily available from the aftermarket. From the seller’s description:
One-owner since new, priced far below market value…
This FJ40 is perfect for the buyer who wants to use it as-is or who wants a great starting point for a fully restored vehicle. Either way, the price is right.
- Powerful, reliable engine and drive-train, with hub-activated 4WD.
- Never abused…just used the way it was meant to be.
- Roll bar and Bimini top are included.
