Default 1981 FJ40 "the Hulk" for sale

SOLD

I'm selling my 40. Here are the details:

I've owned this 40 since April 1999, and it's been garage-kept the entire time. It's one of the nicest 40s I've seen. I've tried to modify it in a "tasteful way" to keep the authentic Toyota FJ40 character in its overall looks and ride. It's been great fun.

Price: $12,500 $11,000. I have way more money in it than that, but I know I'll never see it.

Details:

1981 FJ40 "Hulk"

* Color: grass green
* 123k miles
* original 2F engine, runs great, starts every time
* original 4-speed tranny, shifts like buttah
* split transfer case w/ Mark's (of Australia) gears in transfer case (3:1) - spendy upgrade ($1200 just for parts)
* Seats in great condition, gray vinyl
* Original hard top and doors
* STC full soft top in black denim
* STC bikini top
* Metal lower half doors with soft uppers, made in Pakistan by Ehsan. The black denim fabric on the upper half doors was purchased from STC before they went out of business and shipped to Pakistan, so it matches the STC soft top perfectly.
* OEM soft top mirrors
* Aqualu aluminum tailgate
* 4" BDS lift
* Old Man Emu anti-inversion shackles (except the one next to the power steering box, which has been modified)
* Rancho 9000 shocks
* 33" x 12.50" Goodyear MT/R tires (5). The spare has never touched the ground. Mounted on original '81 Toyota white spoke wheels.
* Front axle rebuilt
* Saginaw power steering
* Uniden CB radio, tuned for serious power
* Conn-Ferr bench seat, recovered with gray vinyl
* Custom front roll cage
* Cool Cruisers "Hell For Stout" front bumper
* Sweet T-Rex sliders
* Under-door area has been cut for more clearance
* Rear wheel wells not cut (yet)
* Back bumper is super beefy, with OEM taillights integrated. Needs a new tire carrier for the spare.
* original 3.7 gears in diffs: you can go 80 MPH on the highway with comfort and ease.
* LA locker (predecessor to Lock-Right) in rear diff.
* Warn premium hubs up front
* Cool air horn
* Hella headlights (lots of light, looks stock)
* Optima Yellow-Top battery
* Sony stereo and 4 high end speakers (Polk in rear). CD player has stopped working, but this could be fixed or replaced easily.
* Brakes are great -- it stops better than my 80.
* Heater is magnificent
* Rear heater (in center console: 1981-83 only)
* Will pass emissions (currently has Colorado 5-year historical plates)

A little rust

* minor bubbles above rear fenders near rivets
* front floor boards are rusty from trapped moisture under the original rubber mats. The passenger side has some small holes.






The STC top is their final model before they went out of business. It's the model where all the windows zip out rather than roll up.



The last two pictures are from the Rising Sun 2008 "40s only" run in August.

If I ever decide to build another 40, I will want it set up almost exactly like I have my 40 set up now. Some of the parts (like the last gen. STC top) are no longer available. This is a great one.

You can PM me here or send email to matt -at- rustybrain -dot- com.

Wow!

Good luck Matt. I know you have thought about this a lot.

There is so much to like about this rig - good luck finding it a new home!

Why not have Rising Sun purchase it, then raffle it off at Cruise Moab? I bet that enough extra tickets would sell that it would be profitable, and there would be a chance that it could stay in the club.

Sorry Martin, thats not a real option.


If I only had one house and an extra garage bay, I would be talking to Matt off line now.

Guys, I have finally decided to get serious about selling my 40. I'm going to post it on Mud, too. Let me know if you are interested or have questions. It's ready to drive 1,000 miles tomorrow.
