1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 Diesel. This BJ40 is a gem; it’s almost impossible to find diesel cruisers in this condition and so well preserved. This is an “original condition” vehicle, not a restoration or re-build, other than maintenance shown below. Original body, metal, motor, steering, brakes, head-liner etc. The paint and seat/door coverings (after-market) were new in 2009. Which such light use, it has 78,000 original kilometers (48,500 Miles). This BJ40 has absolutely no rust or other signs of deterioration of the body, which is common in these vehicles in any climate. The B Diesel motor is known to be a workhorse and nearly indestructible, with fuel-economy of over 20 miles per gallon. The BJ40 is a manual 4-speed with original steering. The vehicle shifts smoothly and travels straight with great power. The 4-cylinder motor is made for low end torque climbing and cruising of 45-50 mph. A pioneer stereo with CD player and new speakers were installed. It was carefully maintained. The following maintenance was done in 2016: Cleaned motor and injection system and replaced injection heads Reviewed and changed Glow Plugs Changed oil and all filters New belts Revision and change of rubber seals Changed primary pump on the clutch and adjusted New radiator Cleaning and adjustment of brakes, replaced brake fluid New battery Painted top, rack and ladder Paint was re-done in 2009, inside and out, and is clean and professionally done. The vehicle top, rack and ladder were re-painted in original white. This is a vehicle that doesn’t come along very often. On June 18th, it was entered into the Seaside, Oregon Car Show and won the “Founders Award”.
