Take the tough-as-nails Land Cruiser reputation and add diesel power, and we're surprised this 4x4 isn't forged out of granite! So you can look over all the details and fun upgrades of this 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40, but you already know this is a terrific vintage off-roader for those who take this seriously.
We like the way this Land Cruiser presents itself with a touch more flair. There's extra polish to the grille, hood latches, and wheels. And the green paint lets this one .....
stand out more than the khaki FJs you usually see (remember this is a BJ - a true diesel import.) But nothing here never steps out of line. After all, the color they chose could get lost in a green meadow, and so it fits ideally with nature. And it still has the classic white roof, but now there's a white pinstripe to coordinate. So this is still a true classic that just likes to add the correct flair. And as you dig deeper into this one, you also see some useful upgrades to make it even more versatile. The updated headlights help keep the trail lit; there's an air intake snorkel; and those bright alloys also allow for wider off-road tires. There's even a full-size spare on a swing-away mount. In total, you get a very straight and clean Land Cruiser that also is unmistakably ready to have some off-road fun.
Inside is plenty of true classic style but with a fresher presentation from a proper investment. The upholstery, dash, door panels, rubber flooring, and fresh headliner are durable yet inviting. You have all the best hallmark features of the classic Land Cruiser, like the rear barn doors, side-mounted rear jump seats, and a removable hardtop. You get the correct grippy three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that is the classic dash with the correct instruments (with the speedo in KM on this import) and the four-wheel-drive instruction bolted to the glovebox.
The B in the BJ40 designation means you get Toyota's 3.0-liter B-series diesel motor. Yes, that's right, this was born with the ultra-desirable and nearly indestructible powerplant. 1977 is a later model from this generation, which means you also have the added control of a four-speed manual transmission. The way this full package runs and shifts smoothly really sends the message of proper care. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you can spot the two-speed transfer case and both beefy axles looking good. So the extra torque of this diesel 4x4 is absolutely ready for off-road duty. Plus, with features like power brakes and modern all-terrain tires, this one is confident on the street and trail.
A diesel Land Cruiser offers true ability and true distinction. So if you're ready to go farther, you need this torque-filled true classic. Call today!!!
