***THIS VEHICLE HAS SOLD!!!!!!***NOT FOR SALE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS UNLESS AN AUTO DEALER***MUST BE SOLD TO OUT OF STATE RESIDENT, LLC, OR NATIONWIDE DEALER***Originally conceived to aid in the Korean War efforts, the Land Cruiser was Japan’s answer to England’s Land Rover and America’s Jeep. Rugged and ready, the familiar FJ-40 was introduced in 1960, a more civilized version of the earlier military and commercial FJs. The FJ-43 is a medium-wheelbase Land Cruiser, about 14-inches longer overall than the better-known FJ-40, which used a short wheelbase. The demand for a more spacious FJ largely came from South America where farms and plantations called for additional cargo and passenger space, but the concept was well received around the world. This FJ-43 Land Cruiser underwent a body-off restoration by an FJ specialist with more than eight years of experience and features a 5-speed manual transmission, locking hubs and the factory, matching-numbers 4.2L/135 HP 2F engine. The blue exterior shines with a nice depth and clarity, complemented by the beige soft top and rare dark brown leather interior. Riding on an Old Man Emu suspension system and 33×13.5×15 BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires around new OE 15-inch steel wheels, the FJ is equipped with power steering and power disc brakes. Passengers will adore the air conditioning in warmer climates and the OEM fog lights when the sun goes down in remote areas. A roll bar adds a little more peace of mind when traversing rugged trails or awkward hills and looks cool to boot, adding to the rugged image FJs present. Though considerably fewer FJ-43s were sold than FJ-40s, the FJ-43 offered owners more room and also lent a smoother ride, both welcome attributes. FJ-43s are more difficult to find than FJ-40s, particularly in a condition such as this one. Simply building onto the legendary reputation the Land Cruiser brand established, the FJ-43 showed once again Toyota’s commitment to serve its’ FJ customers’ needs by expanding the product line for their unique needs***BODY -OFF RESTORATION BY AN FJ SPECIALIST (RESTORING LEGENDS)***FACTORY MATCHING NUMBER 2F 4.2/135HP REBUILT ENGINE***BLUE EXTERIOR WITH BEIGE SOFT TOP***RARE DARK BROWN FULL LEATHER INTERIOR****5-SPEED MANULA TRANSMISSION***OLD MAN EMU SUSPENSTION***POWER STEERING***AIR CONDITIONING***POWER DISC BRAKES***OEM FOG LIGHTS***ROLL BAR*** BF GOODRICH MUD TERRAIN 33X10.5X15 TIRES***NEW OEM 15 INCH WHEELS***LOCKING HUBS***
