1980 FJ-40. With A/C. The date of construction is May 1980. This was a Texas truck formerly owned by a charter
member of Lone Star Land Cruisers and the former owner of the Zebranator (1975 FJ-40). If you have wanted the real
LandCruiser, this is your truck. Here is a description of its many features.
I purchased this beauty in 2008. Since that time, I have continued to improve on the previous owner’s work. She
was garaged for long periods while I was stationed overseas.
~ New radiator, battery~ BF Goodrich Mud Terrain 33x10.50 – 15s~ Excellent and comfortable bucket seats.
From the previous owner in 2008:
This was a frame on restoration ~ The first step was to remove all fixtures in the interior, repair and replace any
defective metal, rust with new metal. New parts when available from Toyota were used as well as body parts from
Cool Cruisers of Texas. The hood was brand new. The quarter panels were new, the fenders were new, the passenger
floor pan was new, the front bib and clip were also new.
~ The interior was painted with POR-15 (Paint Over Rust) to prevent and protect the body from future corrosion.
Next they covered the interior with Rhino Lining to give the interior more protection as well as that cool look
that Rhino Lining gives a trail truck.
~ They then painted the underbody of the truck with POR-15. ~ The entire exterior was sanded down and repainted red
~ All badges on the truck were replaced with OEM badges; all lenses on the lights were replaced; Hella H-4 halogen
headlights were added as well as Hella halogen fog lights. Both the front and rear jump seats were replaced
(Specter Off Road)
~ The roll cage, the heater, and the rear jump seats were sand blasted and powder coated.
~ A “Hell For Stout” front bumper from Cool Cruisers of Texas replaced the front bumper. It is ready for a
winch if desired. There are two tow rings on the bumper
~ A rear trailer hitch for towing is on the rear bumper.
~ OEM rubber door seals (weather-stripping) for the roof, the front doors, and ambulance doors
~ Off Road style OEM side mirrors were added plus I have the original side mirrors.
~ One Pakistani rear half tail gate and hardware. You can replace the ambulance doors with this drop down tail
gate. The Pakistani model is a copy of the rare old style Toyota rear FJ-40 tailgate.
~ Two Specter Off Road fiber glass half doors - Take the top off, add the half doors and the tailgate and you will
have that look only available with a FJ-40.
~ Roof head liner has a small but easily repaired tear.
~ Dash screw knobs, gear shift boots, sun visors, hood hooks and pads, windshield squirter ~ OEM windshield wiper
~ OEM seatbelt receiver, seatbelts for rear jump seats. ~ Simpson 4 point off road seatbelts ~ Fire extinguisher ~
OEM Bottle Jack with OEM tire tools, all were sandblasted and powder coated in black. ~ Sand Blasted and powder
coated roll cage, replaced rubber head protectors on roll cage.
Engine and Transmission:
~This Cruiser has a fire breathing 2-F engine (that was rebuilt 17, 000 miles ago). The compression is perfect; this
motor is stout.
~ Man A Fre Headers ~ Weber 38-38 carb with special Weber air cleaner ~ A rare H-55F 5 speed transmission with a
split transfer case. This transmission with a lower first gear and an overdrive gear was never sold in the USA. It
was purchased it from Man A Fre who rebuilt it and imported it from Australia.
~ Toyota Power Steering, with pump. Bracket made by CCOT. ~ A 4.11 rear end
~ Lock Rite rear locker
~ HEI distributor with a Toyota gear. The HEI really boosted the horsepower; and performance of the motor versus
the stock Toyota distributor. You are ready for fuel injection should you choose to go that route in the future. We
replaced all plug wires and plugs and the truck was recently tuned for peak performance.
~ OEM Master Cylinder, Clutch Master Cylinder and slave cylinder ~ New OEM fuel pump and fuel filter
~ FJ-60 High Output alternator that has been rewound by Specter Off Road for increased amps and voltage
~ OEM water pump ~ OEM horn ~ U-joints Tires and Misc.
~ Old Man Emu springs, shocks, and steering stabilizers – 2 to 3 inches of lift
~ Greasable shackels
~ Fender Flares are from Specte
