The Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45, part of the 40-Series, is a rugged and versatile off-road vehicle introduced in 1964. Available in both pickup and wagon configurations, it boasts exceptional durability and reliability, making it one of Toyota's most enduring and capable off-road platforms. This 1980 FJ45 Pickup has received a recent frame-off restoration & engine overhaul along with a host of off-road modifications. Finished in tan over brown vinyl upholstery, this Land Cruiser build is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida.
This FJ underwent a complete frame-off restoration and has been refinished in tan and modified with a canopy-style cargo bed painted in black. Constructed for heavy-duty adventures, the custom rear cargo space offers several storage compartments, a roof rack, a spare tire mount, gasoline can holders, tow hooks, and a receiver hitch. Additionally, a Rough Country 9,500-lb. Pro Series winch has been mounted to the front bumper. The truck rides on a set of aftermarket Black Rhino wheels with new Kumho RoadVenture tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with photos of the restoration.
The cabin features brown vinyl upholstery with a matching headliner and dash pad complemented by body-colored trim. Equipment includes roll-up windows, door-mounted handlebars and storage pockets, a passenger-side glovebox, and a three-spoke black finished steering wheel. The seller adds that a new stereo has been fitted along with a reversing camera. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
This FJ45 derives power from a venerable 4.2-liter 6-cylinder 2F engine, sending up to 135 HP and 210 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels or all four wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox. The seller adds that the engine underwent an overhaul, and a Rough Country suspension kit has been fitted. An oil and filter change is said to have been recently completed as well.
This sale will include a clean title along with a spare tire & two gasoline cans mounted within the rear cargo bed.
