Kidney, Anyone? 1969 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

After the 2000GT, the second-most valuable vintage Toyota is not a car at all, but one of the original SUVs, the FJ40 Land Cruiser. Some have exchanged hands for $50,000 plus, and they are one of the few Yotas that are regularly restored to the exacting level typically reserved for high-end sports coupes.

Most wouldn’t buy a Land Cruiser unless the intent was to either go off into the great unpaved wilderness or preparation for a zombie pandemic, and workhorses are usually thrashed until the last limp. Then it’s off to the great glue factory/recycling yard in the sky, making any rust free and un-dinged examples rather difficult to come across. This one on eBay boasts only 53,800 miles on the original engine and a three on the tree manual. The opening bid is a “mere” $22,670.

    The only known survivor of the atomic bombs on both Hiroshima and Nagasaki, died recently! His Land Cruiser still lives!

  3. I’d love to hear from anyone else who has an FJ75 Land Cruiser pickup truck. This is a military and commercial-duty truck on a long wheelbase, 1-ton version of an FJ60 chassis.

    Mine has a 3F petrol engine with H55 manual trans, and was built for the U.S. Marines to use in Saudi Arabia. Other markets could get B- or H-series diesels and turbodiesels.
