For sale is our beloved project "Big Red". A 1978 Toyota FJ43 Land Cruiser, in the rare medium wheelbase. This
acclaimed 4x4 icon underwent a thorough frame off restoration in Colombia. A matching numbers example which was
completely rust free before the restoration, with its original floors, engine, transmission, and chassis. The car
is legally imported and carries a clean and clear Florida title. It will be presented with all import documents
including customs, EPA, DOT, and original bill of sale from factory. This surviving beauty is ready to go back into
its natural habitat. Whether that be climbing rugged mountains, cruising the beach, or driving to the office, you
choose the course and this Land Cruiser will lead!
This FJ43 has its original 4.2L Type 2F inline 6 cylinder engine and 4-speed transmission. We performed extensive
inspections of all mechanical components and they were serviced as needed. The original carburetor was rebuilt and
tuned. All brakes were serviced and pads replaced, fresh fluids changed all around, new battery and alternator were
also installed. Everything works as it should, lights, horn, instrument gauges, etc. New electrical wiring and
harness throughout. To maintain its originality, a list of OEM parts were replaced where possible, some of which
include emblems, lighting, weatherstripping, and more.
The entire frame was stripped down to the bare metal. The paint process was done using high quality PPG paint in
its original Freeborn Red (code 309). The chassis was also stripped and then coated for anti-corrosive purposes.
Although the upholstery was replaced recently by previous owner, we restored and painted all the seat hardware. We
installed a vinyl soft top made to the original measurements with a custom steel frame and ambulance doors. A set
of 5 new OEM steel 15" wheels powder coated and wrapped with new BF Goodrich T/A 31x10.5, all including new OEM
