I am the third owner (second owner had it for just over 35 years). This FJ40 spent all but a short time in the
very dry climate of west Texas and was primarily used for light ranch and hunting duties. I have owned a total of
14 FJ40s and 2 FJ45 pickups in the last 30 years and this stock '76 is amazing. It has 99% of the 'original-stuff''
still on it AND that stuff still functions! I currently have two other FJ40s and the facility-space requires this
one to be adopted. I have a passion for these vehicles and I'm certain that the new owner will love it.
I live 40 minutes northwest of Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston and 90 minutes northwest of Hobby Airport
in Houston, TX. I welcome you to inspect and drive this vehicle and you will agree as to the quality of this FJ40.
My bet is that in another 40 years (2056), people will still be admiring this 80-year-old Land Cruiser as a true
New front seats and jump seats in FJ40 stock-grey from the master craftsman at Cruiser Corps. (total of 8 pieces).
At the top of the seat backs (under the new marine-naugahyde upholstery), seats do have the shafts for the
headrests as they were optional that year. These can be found at SOR, Cruiser Corps or Cool Cruisers.
Driver & passenger floorboards and cargo bed are in great condition (see photos). The areas that appear white is
the very minor surface rust that I treated, but wanted to leave visible for the new owner to see just how great
this vehicle has been cared for (and thank God for Texas weather). The drivers side floor board even has the black
hardened glue that was used to adhere the rubber mat to the floor. Note; the red-colored, stock
soundproofing/weatherproofing textured material that is still intact on the drivers floorboard and the transmission
hump....still in great condition.
All knobs and switches are present and operate:
wipers slow & fast and the washer even works (plastic water reservoir is cracked, but functional).
choke, hazard, cigarette lighter (even us no-smokers appreciate it still works), fan low & high, fresh air, warm
air all function. Vent/heat/defrost knobs present and heater functions. Rear heater was disassembled, cleaned and
it has an easy-access, quick disconnect wire to turn it on & off. It works well and will certainly warm-your-cargo.
AM/FM radio has the original speaker in the glove box. Antennae is missing.
All gauges operate correctly and hold steady. (Nice that this FJ40 holds engine temp on the cool side).
Emergency brake holds the vehicle stationary.
Horn functions with two horn assemblies on the side of the radiator shroud.
Gauges, dash, heater and dome lights all function.
Previous owner had wired & switched (under steering wheel) for fog light, so I left that in place.
Sun visors and rear view mirror are moveable, but hold tight in place.
Glove box....you can eat out of there it is so clean!
Driver & passenger windows roll up and down properly.
Driver, passenger, ambulance doors and fuel door lock & unlock with TWO sets of keys.
Headliner is present and in good condition with no tears.
Jump seats fold down and stow up with straps.
Seat belts for both front and both jump seats present and function properly.
Rubber weather striping around all doors and windows are in good condition.
Roll cage is present and has the four padded pieces intact.
Turn signal/running, emergency, tail, head, brake, reverse, side marker and license lights are present and function
All emblems front, side and rear are present.

Side mirrors are tight and glass is solid.
Kick vents function properly and there is NO air conditioner on this vehicle.
Spare tire holder swings open and closes properly and holds stable.
No cracks or dings on any of the glass.
White top is in great condition with solid gutter rails.
Vehicle exterior was painted several years ago (the interior was not). While it is not quite the interior stock
Land Cruiser FJ40 Freeborn Red, it is a close match to it. The bright fire engine red gets a lot of attention! This
vehicle does have a few scratches on it from it's 40 year tour-of-duty. There is a scar on the right-rear panel a
