Description

Lot #357 - Until a few months ago, this FJ had 100% of its original factory applied paint. The body was media-blasted down to the bare metal. It was totally rust-free except for the most typical spot underneath the rear doors, but nothing major and we had it repaired. We have pictures of this FJ40 in bare metal to show how solid it is. It was re-painted the correct original color of Bright Red and also re-painted the interior the original red as well. The fiberglass roof was re-painted the original color white as well. On the body, there are all new windshield wiper blades, rear tail lights upgraded to LED light assemblies but retain the stock look, hood hooks, new spare wheel with a matching BFGoodrich tire and chrome tow hooks. The suspension was upgraded with a brand new lift kit, new 35" BFGoodrich mud terrain T/A's, new Eagle alloy wheels, Bilstein shocks, reupholstered seats for the front and rear jump seats with all new padding, and the seat frames were stripped and repainted before they were recovered. Also has new pedal shifts, shifter boots and seals and topped it is off with a new roll cage. Mechanically, it is all stock and runs great. It has a new power steering conversion and a fresh tune-up on the original Inline 6 cylinder motor. This is the last year of this very desirable body style.
