As you can clearly see, the Violet exterior of this FJ40 absolutely sparkles in the sunlight. All the wheels are flawlessly polished, while the spare has been freshly painted white. An impeccable tan top is draped over the vehicle, while the bumpers, lights, badging, and everything else is factory-correct. The undercarriage is rust-free, which is absolutely amazing, with all the different components featuring a nice shine. There’s that same level of cleanliness under the hood and of course inside the vehicle. Like the top, the upholstery for the front and rear seats is brand new. All factory gauges and controls are present. This is exactly how everyone would like to see this legendary vehicle.

As they say, the proof is in the pudding, and this FJ40 is set to really rumble. A 4.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine provides sufficient and even more importantly reliable power for when you kiss civilization goodbye for a time. That combines with four-wheel drive, excellent approach/departure/breakover angles, a low-range sub-gear, among other trail-worthy equipment.

Made from 1960 to 1984, the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is a thing of legend these days. While they were quite popular, far too many succumbed to car crashes and trail incidents, among other perils, so the total number of survivors is lower than you might expect. That low supply, even in the impressive selection of consignments at Carlisle Auctions, of course means values have risen. There’s no reason to not think these SUVs will continue to appreciate in value.

To have a chance at owning this FJ40, register to bid through Carlisle Auctions.
