Conceived in response to the American Jeep design, the FJ40 was Toyota's initial entry into the four-wheel drive market. Production of the FJ40 in its most popular configurations (two-door utility, two-door pickup and four-door station wagon) began in 1960 and concluded in 1984. In 1965, the Land Cruiser was the best-selling Toyota in the United States and was very popular. While the removable hardtop made with vehicle perfect for cruising the beaches and boulevards, the high clearance, nimble maneuverability and four-wheel drive made the FJ40 a rugged off-road vehicle capable of tackling the toughest terrain. This fine example has a recent restoration and is finished in bright red paint offset by a white roof and wheels. The front 40/60 seats are upholstered in black vinyl and the floors are protected by black diamond plate rubber mats. Power comes from a 4.2 liter straight six-cylinder engine coupled to a four-speed standard transmission with dual range transfer case and Warn front lock-out hubs.
