This 1960 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ25 comes finished in matte green over a tan leatherette interior. Said to have spent its first 50+ years within its original owner’s family, this example was acquired by the seller several years ago. It is believed to be the first vehicle to ever climb to the village of Nabusimake, at the heart of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in the 1960s. This FJ25 equips a 1.9L Toyota 1F engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, an original mechanical winch, and a few modern upgrades such as electronic ignition and power steering. Previously listed on PCARMARKET, this FJ25 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New Jersey.
The body of this FJ25 is said to have been refinished in its current matte green color and a new tan soft top was fitted in 2022. Features include roll-up canvas rear and side windows, a rear-mounted spare tire, rear bumperettes, a front-mounted winch, and a fender-mounted gas can. An additional custom-made side mirror was added to the passenger side and is easily removable according to the seller. It rides on a set of 16” steel wheels finished in green with chrome hubcaps which are dressed in Yokohama Geolander Mud Terrain tires. The wheels are said to have been refinished in 2021. Additional images are provided in the gallery.
The cabin features a front split bench seat and inward-facing rear jump seats upholstered in brown leatherette. Equipment includes rubber floor liners, a glove box, and manual windows. The seller reports all gauges to be working properly, although the period-correct radio and speakers are currently inoperable.
Power comes from a numbers-matching 1F 3.9-liter inline 6-cylinder engine which drives the rear or all four wheels by way of a 4-speed manual transmission and a single-speed transfer case. The engine was fitted with electronic ignition and a new starter in 2021. Additionally, power steering was added under previous ownership, and stopping power is provided by four-wheel drum brakes.
This sale will include a clean title.
