Everything's better with a Chevy small block!

The Toyota FJ40 is as iconic in the off-road community as the Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco, and it continues to rise in popularity as classic trucks and SUVs become more desirable among collectors. What you're looking at here is a solid '79 FJ40 that has had its stock engine replaced with the ubiquitous Chevrolet 350 CID small-block V8, and if this kind of off-road awesomeness is what you're looking for, Vintage Cruisers has just what you need!

This U.S.-spec FJ is painted in Safari Yellow, and the interior features full carpeting over a spray-in bedliner floor. The aforementioned small-block V8 is paired with a four-speed manual transmission with 3.73 gears in the rear end making it a perfect highway cruiser. It's getting harder to find these FJs that haven't been overly abused or modified, to be sure to check this one out if you're in the market for an off-roader that isn't an over-saturated Wrangler or over-priced Bronco.

Vintage Cruisers is more than just place to buy FJ40s, they can also modify them to specific tastes just in case you're looking for different wheels/tires or a seating arrangement that might be better suited for a family. This '79 FJ doesn't need much, though, as it is ready to hit the trails, cruise to car shows or just use as a really cool daily driver.
