1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ55
2F engine with 4 speed gearbox.
Factory Air conditioning.
77,000 KMS used. Amazing condition, super reliable and very tidy interior.
Body has been recently professionally repainted with Dupont paint on the exterior in the original color. The interior areas have not been repainted as the original paint is in great condition and not hiding any damage. The body had no rust on it whatsoever before it was painted, the reason for painting is that some years ago a previous owner had painted it badly and I decided it had to be fixed.
New door seals and weather stripping installed after repainting, very expensive parts for this model as very very limited stock left around the world.
All window window winder mechanisms work perfectly.
All original interior.
Rubber floor mat for front and rear in PERFECT condition, extremely rare! Floor mats in this condition sell for $5000 in the US.
Original interior door panels. Extremely rare to see on any of these cars, most of the time they have deteriorated.
Original seats re-upholstered by a professional upholstery shop with OEM style material and with new foam in the seats as some areas the foam was starting to get a bit weak. Seats fold and adjust perfectly on the original mechanism.
Brand new professionally installed Headliner done in a factory OEM style and material.
All the electric components and switches all working and in good condition. All the gauges and dash lights work correctly.
No modifications done all OEM Toyota parts.
Brand new custom made original style exhaust system made out of tig welded stainless steel. The old exhaust was dented.
Lots of mechanical parts like radiator hoses, plugs, filters, fluids, oils, suspension bushings have been replaced recently and the car runs great.
Brakes serviced, performing well. It has factory disk on the front.
OEM 15 inch steel split wheels will go with the car. Currently running 16' FJ60 wheels and new Dunlop tires.
Cooling system flushed , new water pump , hoses and Radiator serviced and the engine never overheats.
AC system was recently serviced and regassed at Ampex, I had new hoses made and it blows cold. I used the car on the hottest summer days and it worked well.
Mechanically checked over and serviced fully and ready for years of reliable use.
Carb runs perfect starts very easily,
Lots of other things to list but come see the car if you are interested, you will be impressed at the condition, it's a real time capsule.
Roof Rack can be sold with the car or I'm happy to keep it. Also I can get a brand new roof tent installed on the rack should the potential buyer want to go camping right away.
Very rare to find these cars in all original condition, particularly with zero rust on the bodies. Reliable and it drives very solid being such a low mileage car .
A real collectors item.
Please no time wasters or low ballers, only serious enquiries. It's in amazing condition and it's a great investment with good return.
The last FJ55 I saw sold in the UAE was in Al Ain two years ago and it got 160,000 dhs. In the US and Europe these cars go for $ 50-70,000 in this condition. My pricing is fair.
These classic Landcruisers are going up in value a lot in the last few years and particularly clean original low mileage cars.
Car can be viewed in Motorcity, Dubai.
