1973 Toyota Land Cruiser description:1973 FJ40 Land Cruiser. Note that the FJ has been stripped down to the frame. I have the vehicle pictured, just disassembled so if you're not wanting a project then this isn't the FJ for you. If you're up for a little assembly work, read on.
** Top and doors are in perfect shape, truly excellent. These have been stored in a spare bedroom, honestly. I don't think you'll find a better one.
** Motor (1974 1F or "F and a half") is freshly rebuilt, still on the stand, never been fired. No shade tree mechanic work. Machine work was done by local machine shop and a local engine builder did all the assembly. I have the original carb rebuilt by "FJ40 Jim" who is known as the authority on FJ carbs. It's still in the box where I got it back from him.
** Tub had quarter panels and rear sill replaced with new panels from Cool Cruisers of TX. Again, a body shop who is an FJ expert did the body work. He also bedlined the tub on the inside. Floors are solid and didn't need replacing. I have pictures of before and after the tub work was done.
** I have two 3 speed transmissions and two transfer cases. Both came out of running and driving FJ40s, so both should be in fine shape. I have photos of both vehicles that these came out of. I also have a spare 1F motor that needs rebuilt. It ran but has 20psi on #1.
** New wheel cylinders on all 4 corners.
I have almosteverything to put it back together. I have all the big stuff such as the back doors (have a few extra), the roll bar, gas tank (I think I have two), steering column (have two), etc, etc. I have multiple front bezels. I have an original radiator that my local shop rebuilt. I have the wiring harness, but was going to replace it with new wiring.
What's missing? I have seats, but they need to be recovered. I have no rear seats. I have no rear heater. I have no front signals or rear lights. I'm probably missing some switches, but I know I have 1 if not 2 headlight switches.
I have a LOT of spare parts. I accumulated parts from three FJs to build one. So in some cases I have multiple pieces, but I may be missing something here or there. Everything FJ40 that I have goes with the truck.
Note that I am in Alabama and Alabama does not and will not issue a title for a vehicle over 30 years old. It is currently registered in my name. I've sold vehicles out of state before and other states recognize that AL (and other states) don't issue a title for older trucks and simply require a bill of sale and a copy of the current registration, both of which I will provide.

The frame pictured is the frame that goes with the FJ. The frame that was on it (in the first pictures) wasn't in as good of shape as this one and I wanted the best frame I could find.
