1974 FJ40


The Land Cruiser Heritage Museum is offering a rare opportunity for a Land Cruiser enthusiast to purchase a vehicle currently in the museum’s collection. Offered for sale is a 1974 US market FJ40, manufactured in February of 1974.

The exterior is an old re-finish of the original Pollux orange. The body panels are mostly straight, it does appear that the rear tub lower corners and rear sill have been replaced, likely due to rust. There is primer on part of the hard top and indications that some top repairs have been done. The underside of the body exhibits surface rust. The glass is in decent condition and is factory except for the windshield, which is unmarked and looks newer. The odometer shows 40,595 miles. There are no records to back that up as actual miles.

The interior is in fair condition. The front seats appear to have been reupholstered at some point and are currently well-worn and taped up. There is an original accessory AM radio in the dash. The instrument panel and dash pad are in good condition.

The chassis has moderate to medium rust on most surfaces and there is oil seepage at the rear of the engine, transmission, transfer case and at the steering box. The axles are mostly dry.

The powertrain consists of an F engine, 4-speed manual transmission and a 2-speed transfer case. The air injection pump has been removed but the air injection rail is present.  Features include Warn locking hubs, five new BFG T/A KO2 30x9.50x15 tires and an aftermarket soft top, with bows, is folded up in the back.

This would be a good candidate for restoration, especially being Pollux orange as that is a rare color.

The vehicle is offered at $18,000.00 and can be inspected at the museum during regular business hours. Contact Dan Busey at 505-615-5470 or email .
