This 1966 FJ40 will have classic looks combined with serious power
This well maintained FJ40 spent most of its career hauling bananas from a plantation to a marketplace on the mountains in Latin America. Its first owner passed away and it remained locked away for years while the surviving family resolved an inheritance dispute. Its second owner finally purchased the vehicle and embarked on a partial restoration which was never completed, but he stored the vehicle well until we acquired it.
Our team at The FJ Company has been tasked with the goal of turning this vehicle into the ultimate weekend driver for its new owner in the Buffalo, NY area. While the vehicle's body will remain largely period-correct, power will be provided by a 210 hp Toyota 1FZ engine with Fuel Injection, coupled with a Toyota automatic transmission. It will also include other modern comforts such as power steering, a Smittybilt winch, Old Man Emu suspension, and LED headlights.
It's going to look classic, but it's going to be mean under the hood. Want one just like it? Build yours.
