The Toyota J40 is the model designation for a Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series made from 1960 until 1984. Most 40 series Land Cruisers were built as 2-door SUVs with slightly larger dimensions than a Jeep CJ.
The model was available as the FJ40 series (with F engines) and also BJ40/41/42 (short wheelbase), BJ43/44/46 (middle wheelbase) or HJ45/47 (long wheelbase) designation where it had a Diesel engine. Land Cruisers built in Brazil from 1968 to 1993 – with Mercedes-Benz engines – received OJ40/45 (OJ50/55 from 1973) series chassis codes and those built from 1994 to 2001 – with Toyota engines – have BJ50/55 series model codes.
Finished in its original shade of Toyota Medium Blue this BJ 45 can only be described as being in excellent condition throughout. In 2013/14 it was the subject of a recent body and mechanical restoration to the wonderful standard it is presented in today. The dark grey interior is in equally in excellent condition. A car for the collector.
