History of the Toyota FJ-43 Series

From the Atacama Desert in Columbia to the Rocky Mountains, from the dunes of Dubai to the open plains of Australia, the Toyota FJ Land Cruiser stands alone as the most reliable, long-lasting, and nearly unbreakable vehicle that gets you anywhere you need to be.

The Type F engine used from 1955-1974,made the FJ famous; not the most efficient but virtually impossible to break! It was (and is) commonly known to run 500,000–600,000 miles without a problem. Running from 1975–1988, the 2F improved on the F, increasing engine size to 4.2L. This engine is a little bit more efficient and powerful than the F engine and it still has the same feel that FJ drivers love.

Nearly the same vehicle as the FJ-40, theFJ-43, a slightly longer version,introduced more ways to configure your FJ. The slightly longer wheelbase offered more space in the trunk (the rear) for either cargo or passengers. The FJ-43 was produced until 1984. In recent years, the FJ-43 has commanded a premium from collectors given its rarity in the US.

This FJ-43 is a Perfect Driver.

The FJ-43 starts easily and runs smooth and strong. As it should, the FJ-43 demonstrates the perfect patina around the edges. The goal for the FJ-43 was to offer a solid period driver that is tough and reliable and with all the esteem of a legendary foreign market Land Cruiser.

This FJ-43 is equipped with the legendary 2F 4.2-liter straight-six. In addition, the 3-speed transmission was refreshed as well.

The FJ-43 is nearly identical to the FJ-40, but with a slightly longer wheelbase making for more room for passenger comfort. It has certainly proven its ability to get this compact 4x4 out of many tight situations and tow just about any moderately sized toy its owners can imagine. Built to mimic America's "hella" tough Jeep, this old school SUV features part-time 4-wheel drive and enough ground clearance to give new meaning to the phrase "stump jumper".

The FJ-43's rugged 3-speed utilizes big gears to serve up an awesome combination of inclement weather capability and off-road prowess. A manual steering rack provides the kind of vintage feedback that excites off-roading purists. Big drum brakes bring everything to a halt. So, what are you waiting for? Break out the compass and set your heading to your favorite wilderness or maybe the park down the street.
