West Coast Classics are proud to present a custom 1972 Toyota FJ40 Landcruiser Truck which was sold new in 1972 in Southern California.

It was ground-up, frame off restored and modified in Oregon. It was then sold to an owner in Vancouver, Canada where the previous owner purchased it in 2020. The entire drive train was replaced with a custom built Chevy 383 Stroker making approximately 500 hp along with brakes, suspension, steering, and electronics by Lalo at 'Lalos Muscle Cars & Corvettes' in Van Nuys, California.

The engine is extremely strong and runs cool no matter how hot the outside temperature or how hard its run. The upholstery was upgraded by 'Nachos Custom Interiors' in North Hollywood, California. The custom seats are beautifully recovered and the new high level carpet is perfectly installed over Dynamat insulation.

The truck was driven less than 520 miles after its initial restoration, and then less than 200 miles since the new engine and mechanical upgrades. It has very subtle ghost flames and has four wheel power disc brakes.

The Toyota Landcruiser is the longest running series for Toyota and certainly one of the finest true off road 4WD full size sport utility vehicles ever built and a legendary performer in the harshest of settings as proved through extensive testing by Toyota in the Australian outback, notorious for extreme temperatures and terrain and where it became hugely popular and Australia's best selling full size body on frame four wheel drive vehicle ever! Production started in 1954 and by 1973 over 300K Landcruisers had been sold worldwide; a true testament of their legendary capabilities! It was produced as a convertible, a Hardtop, a Station Wagon and there was a Utility Truck version.

The FJ40 series is an iconic and classic series and these trucks are now being sought after like never before with models like this fully restored and customized examples being especially prized by enthusiasts. The FJ40 series (1960-83) initially sported a 3.9L 6 cylinder engine with a 3 speed manual gearbox until 1975 when it sported a larger and more powerful 4.2L 2F version. The FJ40 finally had low range gearing but continued with a 3 speed main gearbox.

This is one very fine example of this increasingly desirable and stylishly customized legendary FJ40 series Toyota Landcruiser Custom V8 4WD in the rigid 2 door hardtop body-style with a removable hardtop and drop down windshield for the ultimate 'Safari' style 4x4 and with this particular model still looking mostly all stock although fully customized with the some of the most modern of upgrades.
