Used 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 for sale in Salem, OH
Toyota launched the FJ40 series utility vehicle in 1960. Official importation to the U.S. began in 1963 and within two years the FJ40 Land Cruiser was hands down the best-selling Toyota in America. Cosmetically the FJ was essentially the same truck until it went out of production in 1983 barring minor trim tweaks; however it saw a gradual progression of functional improvements and upgrades over the years shifting from being a bare-bones rock hopper to a commensurately equipped modern SUV 30 years ahead of the curve.The FJ40 was available as open-bodied or fully enclosed two-door wagon.As FJ40s reached the secondary market it became very common for owners to take on engine swaps most notably by replacing the FJ's stock six with a small block Chevy V-8. The Chevy engine certainly yielded more power but Toyota's six-cylinder was essentially a reverse-engineered 235-cid Stovebolt six Chevrolet engine that was indestructible. This is part and parcel why stock power trains will continue to pull big money�few are left versus a fleet of retrofits. Visit JKs Galleria Of Vintage Classic and Pristine Cars for your next vehicle.
