FJ 40 Landcruiser history:  here is a just striking, timeless and aggressive design that is used and loved all over the world, the 4- wheel drive works with two ranges as factory with the proper shift levers, mechanically, these classic Land Cruisers were so accepted that 1973 marked the 300,000 unit worldwide production, these were very strong, well designed vehicles to be used “in the wild” as well for use in the snow in Austria or in Minnesota, these also featured these driving qualities  along with a great design that is truly automotive investment history, really a Landmark Design, this style was built until 1983 and became a piece of drivable collectables of automotive history with great following all over the world, 

Engine: these strong straight 6 cylinder engines are famous for their durability all over the world, the Toyota ‘F’ engine was a series of OHV inline-6-cylinder engines were produced by Toyota between 1955 and 1992, they are known for their high amount of torque at a low RPM, massive cast-iron blocks and heads and also, importantly, their high reliability, the ‘F’ Engine had one of the longest production runs of any Toyota engine with the overhead valves actuated by pushrods from a gear driven camshaft in the lower portion of the engine, this engine was installed and rebuilt in the last newer restoration, it had the factory rating at a 125 horsepower at a low rpm with the very strong 189 ft/lbs. of torque on this 4.2 Liter ‘F’ engine, it was completely rebuilt from all the information received,  has the proper 2v carb with original stock hard to find air intake and cleaner, factory linkage with the manual choke, this has brand new fresh professional tune with the valves set, new spark plugs and excellent wires, with a quick pull on the choke, a bit of a warm-up and this strong and rugged smooth power plant of an engine just purrs, the high tech oil is just changed, the fresh compression reading will be given, the valves to be adjusted and the timing set in the Fraser Dante shop, fresh radiator fluid, 

Costing notes: now in 2021, the expenses to build and restore classic cars are climbing, we are faced with limited parts supply from the orient and domestically, when we can find our top quality parts, paints and tires, our costings are way higher, shipping is higher, our own staff now takes serious health precautions on our shop to protect themselves, our insurance is higher, thusly as we go forward at Fraser Dante, we will keep up our very top quality vehicle build but we are forced to raise our prices with the big nut we have today,  

Working systems/lighting: note that it is very hard to find such a classic vehicle with all systems working, the new uprated bright Sylvania “Extreme White” headlights just installed have great range better than new, the brake lights work, this has the working proper fender mounted Japanese amber/white front driving lights, the same type lenses are used in the rear for driving, an added extra are the expensive front driving lights, the horn is working, even has the top of the windshield mounted electric windshield wipers that are checked to be working, the brakes are checked so they work so very well for this strong ‘truck’, the full braking system and all lines are fresh, strong shocks, the springs are in great condition with fresh  shackles and strong ‘U’ bolts, has excellent bushings, thusly the attitude of the vehicle is a great presentation,

Summary:  these vehicles are most important as a drivable collectable in the USA as well as acceptance all over the world with their classic lines and ‘strong’ appearance, these top quality FJ40s with excellent mechanicals and are really climbing in value, it is said “they appreciate in value while you drive them, and they’re so cool that everyone in the movie business has one”, a true modern classic, great effort is made to present a really top investment quality classic, note the highly detailed show engine bay, with this beautiful classic striking color and the rare air conditioning system, the owner is ready either to load your golf clubs to the Country Club, go to your favorite restaurant or head out on an African safari, a great investment and great fun
