Originally registered in Australia's New South Wales, this right-hand drive Land Cruiser was bought by the current owner in 2008 from a private seller in Melbourne, Victoria. Offered here is an FJ40 short-wheelbase model, displaying a mileage of just 95,710km (59,471) miles. Ordered from the factory with a 4 speed manual gearbox, the 4 wheel drive bits have high-range 2 and 4 wheel drive and low-range 4-wheel drive capability via lockable front hubs.
Inside, the standard petrol tank under the front seat with an additional long-range tank under the passenger seat. It also benefits from a factory-fitted roll cage. Original seats have been reupholstered at some point and the radio is missing. Suspension is from traditional, 'old school' standard leaf springs and shock absorbers with 50mm greaseable shackles for additional ground clearance. Previously, the FJ40 had been converted to run on LPG but this was removed when the vendor moved to Sweden with the vehicle. As LPG is virtually non-existent in Sweden and the regulations are quite strict. There are many receipts for servicing accompanying the vehicle. 2 sets of wheels and tyres (including Swedish winter tyres/wheels). Other work includes; a replacement engine: The original Toyota 6 cylinder was replaced with Chevrolet 283 V8 (a reconditioned crate engine), upgraded to discs, power steering, catalytic convertor fitted, new winter tyres and wheels, complete overhaul and chassis media blasted plus Waxoyled and engine and carb overhaul.
