Information Regarding The Toyota FJ40
The Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser was developed in the early-1950s and was based on the Willys M38 Jeep. When Toyota and Land Rover went head-to-head in the 1960s, Toyota won nearly every encounter. The short-wheelbase FJ40 was rigid and durable and made considerable inroads into the Jeep market in the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. Toyota then re-focused its attention to the rest of the world in the 1980s. The barebones FJ40 was built in Brazil as the Bandeirante, in Venezuela as the Macho, and Australia still offers the updated 70 series for their rugged terrain. The final FJ40s were imported to the United States in 1983, after being replaced by the Land Cruiser SUV.
Considered to be one of the most unforgettable off-road SUVs of all time, the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ 40 was part of the Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series. Introduced in 1960, the FJ 40 was available in a variety of versions through 1984. From 1958 until 2001 the FJ 40 was produced in Brazil as the Toyota Bandeirante. Larger than the Jeep CJ, the majority of 40 series Land Cruisers were built as two-door models. Today the FJ 40 is incredibly popular as a restoration candidate thanks to its basic design. New steel presses helped Toyota make many production changes upgrading the 20 series to know-classics 40. The Land Cruiser received much-needed low-range gearing, while the FJ40 was given a new 125 hp 3.9-liter engine. The F in the name stood for the F engines, while the ‘J’ stood for Jeep.
