1977 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40

Hello you guys. I am selling a 1977 BJ40 DIESEL ( 12 Volt system ) from my Land Cruiser collection. No issues at all with this cruiser. VIN NUMBERBJ0009435. Well taken care of, garaged and maintained at all times. The Cruiser is TITLED and REGISTERED in California. The TITLE is CLEAR TITLE, the cruiser does NOT require a smog inspection in California and is currently registered through July of 2017. You WILL be able to re-register and Title this BJ40 anywhere. No issues.I was very fortunate to find this Land Cruiser in Northern California.The BJ40 in 1977 came with a stock 4 cylinder "B" engine. Mine has great compression numbers. Engine compression just done last week and revealed an excellent 400 plus psi in all 4 cylinders ( 410psi- 410 - 415 - 410 ).Please note: Factory Specs on a new "B" engine show compression at approx. 500 psi. The cruiser does NOT smoke and Idles perfectly. The "B" series diesel motors are not fast on the road but extremely reliable and if properly maintained are known to go500k miles. IF YOUR LOOKING FOR FAST,DON'T BUY A BJ40OR ANY DIESEL LAND CRUISER. They are extremely rugged though and can climb anything. Torque and reliability just amazing on these things.Mine has 99419 miles on it although please note the cruiser's odometer registers in kilometers. These miles are accurate and the condition of the cruiser supports this. I did NOT restore this Land Cruiser, I only refreshed it. Itdid NOT need very much when we received it.I will list below everything that I have done to it and maintain full disclosure so that the bidder can get an accurate picture of its condition. Please Note: I have a Videobelowfor you to review. It will show a cold start, a brief walk around and the cruiser at idle. Here are some of the details: * ALL fluids just changed ( oil, filter, front and rear differential oil replaced, transmission and transfer case oil replaced and coolant replaced ) * All filler plug gaskets just replaced * Compression check just done * Valve Adjustment just done ( winning bidder should adjust valves every 8k miles ) * Although the seats were in wonderful condition when I purchased the cruiser the seams had come loose in numerous places so I just re-upholstered ALL SEATS AND PADDING. The seat frames themselves are all original stock from 1977 and in wonderful condition. The Land Cruiser is inSTOCK condition just like from factory in 1977 * The paint is in wonderful condition, does NOT need to be repainted, even up close, looksextremely nice, very acceptable andpresentable and in ouropinion the cruiser could be shown at any car show.The cruiserhas ZERO cancer rust and will last for many more years if kept indoors. The paint is TOYOTA FACTORY MULETA RED CODE T-1454, a beautiful Peruvian Red, very similar to the old Porsche Targa's from the seventies * We just put in a BRAND NEW HEADLINER that I purchased fromwww.SOR.COM *BRAND NEW BFGOODRICH 32 x 11.50 x 15 All Terrain T/A x 5 tires * FiveBrand New Original Stock Land Cruiser Steel Wheels just purchased from Toyota and then Sand Blasted and Powder Coated back to original Toyota Grey * Brand New wheel Caps from Specter Off Road here in Southern California * Undercarriage just repainted with VHT Drive Train Enamel which will help protect the cruiser over the years to come * New Thermostat and Gaskets purchased from Specter Off Road / www.SOR.COMwhere parts can be purchased for this cruiser if you need anything in thefuture* New Water Pump from SpecterOff Road* Radiator just recently "re-cored"( cools perfectly )* Head Gasketjust replaced andpurchased from Specter Off Road and Head resurfaced. Head is in perfect condition with no hairline cracks.

The Transmission in these BJ40 Land Cruisers are extremely stout, very reliable * The Land Cruiser has ZERO CANCER RUST and has never had any cancer rust. Good solid cruiser, well maintained and kept garaged * Steering is tight with no issues * Front Hubs engage properly *ALL receipts that I have will be transferred to the winning bidder * The Cruiser does NOT leak. PLEASE NOTE: I have owned over 38 Land Cruisers since 1975with one of my restorations making it into the Land Cruiser Heritage Museum so I am very familiar with LandCruisers and buy themvery carefully for my collection. I have also ownedseveral B, 2B and 3B diesels so rest assured that I will be passing along a good cruiser to you.These engines are extremely reliable and I have NUMEROUS CONNECTIONS for parts if you ever need them. Very simple. No worries. Folks worry about parts when considering the purchase of one of these Diesel Cruisers. Please DO NOT worry. They are available and ez to find. I am more than happy to assist and do it all the time for diesel owners all over the country.Folks, the cruiser needs nothing. It is ready to go anywhere in my opinion. I would drive this Land Cruiser to Alaska tomorrow with my family with no worries and as mentioned, if properly maintained you will not have any issues with it. These BJ40 Land Cruisers are extremely reliable and extremely rugged, stout and perfect for backcountry camping and fishing trips. You can go anywhere in these things. They also perform very well at highway speeds ( 65 - 75 mph ). I am happy to report that this cruiser was never abused, very seldom off road and the FRAME, UNDERCARRIAGE, MOTOR MOUNTS, BODY MOUNTS AND ENTIRE CRUISER support this claim and are in excellent condition. No issues whatsoever. You can drive it full time right now. Nothing has to be done to it at the moment. I may have missed mentioning some things but will log them in if I think of anything else. The pictures and above information pretty much speaks to the cruisers condition. I can't give the cruiser away as I have a lot invested in it but I have set the askingPRICEfairly based on its rarity and condition and will try to give the buyer a bit of equity. I try my best to be fair when selling one of my cruisers. I just want them to go to the right people.If you leave these cruisers in stock condition they will continue to go up in value every year. The Diesel BJ40 is a rare bird. Any reasonable offer will be considered. ANY questions you might have please contact me. ANY additional pictures you may need please contact me. I offer full disclosure. I do have a few letters of recommendation from folks who have purchased from my collection in the past and will pass them along to you if youwish to review. In the mean time please see a message left by a guy who bought one from my collection: jameatkinso-78''Had a great experience with the seller. Bought a land cruiser from him sight unseen and have been thrilled with it.''Please review the below video. I DO have a reliable shipper that I have used to transport my collection of Land Cruisers if you wish to use him. Very reasonable prices to transport. Just let me know. Open or Closed Transport.
