Completely Refurbished • 126,000 Original Miles

Reserve price Not met!

Item condition: Used

Auction expired without reaching reserve price


This is an excellent condition "original survivor" FJ40 that has been completely refurbished, repainted in original freeborn red paint #309 with 126,000 original miles. The 2F 6 cylinder engine had a complete rebuild at 110,000 and runs very strong. Upgrades include dual dump headers with flow master mufflers. The true dual exhaust sounds great and makes a huge difference in performance. This truck was also upgraded to the Weber Carb and was recently tuned, with all paperwork accompanying it.

The drivetrain consists of an original 4 speed transmission that shifts perfectly. A new clutch was installed at the time of the engine overhaul. The seller notes that this truck has the original transfer case and differentials, with Warn hubs, and fully functional 4x4.

This truck is about as close to a full nut and bolt restoration as you can get.
