For sale in our Dallas showroom is one of the nicest Toyota FJ40’s we have come across. This 1972 Toyota FJ40 was built to drive and we can prove it. Built from the ground up, the frame was stripped all the way down to bare metal and powder coated in gloss black. The frame mounts were modified for the new heart with a few extra cylinders. A ZZ4 350 CID V8 was taking over the power duties and is mated to a military issued Condeisel SM420 4 speed manual transmission that is attached to a Ranger Gear splitter 27% overdrive unit. As far as the custom stuff, the engine mounts, scrape plates, front steering correction kit, and the power steering plate were all fabricated. The springs and the lift feature custom made spring mounts and reinforcement gussets for strength. Rancho springs and power steering box were then bolted in place. 1.5 inch tall body lift blocks were used to raise the body of the Cruiser. They were made of 6061 aluminum and powder coated gloss black. The drive shafts were custom made front and rear. The front and rear axles were completely rebuilt . New brakes front and rear were installed with new lines and a later model master cylinder. The parking brake cable and hardware was replaced and works well. All of this combination allows the use of 35x12.50x15 Goodyear Silent Armor tires with the tried and true Centerline HT wheels that measure 15 inches by 10 inches wide.
The interior is a trip with the Recaro heated and cooled power adjustable seats, man these things are comfy. The jumps seats in the back were redone for any passenger to ride along this beast with you. To protect the driver and passenger a custom BTB powder coated roll cage was build to withstand the toughest terrain. This cage is what the seat belts are mounted to so strength is not in question at all. BTB had their hands all over this thing with the custom tilt steering column and sports a custom leather MOMO leather steering wheel. Even the dash plate is a BTB piece and holds the factory gauges but also includes and aviation compass and altimeter, now that’s just cool.
You may notice these doors look a bit different, well those were custom made as well using 1972 FJ Doors that were cut down. But if you want full doors just remove these and throw on the full soft doors that are included that match the full top. The bikini top is what this whole setup is designed for but if you want to switch back you can.
Audio was not ignored and there is a heck of a stereo in here. There are custom tweeter enclosures built into custom roll cage that have Polk audio speakers. There is a Kicker Solo Baric subwoofer in a custom rhino lined box bolted behind the driver seat. There are also two Pioneer 6X9’s housed in Tuffy outdoor locked speaker cabinets.
A couple of exterior things are the BTB custom rear bumper welded into place with a built in tow attachment. The front bumper is also BTB powder coated piece and is mounted to the factory holes. There is a warn winch is a 9000 lb capacity and is mounted on a BTB powder coated winch mounting plate.
