The FJ60’s were the last of the stripped-down Land Cruisers before Toyota pandered to the burgeoning luxury SUV market with the FJ62. It’s still got roll-em-up windows and manual locks. It’s got an aftermarket Kenwood CD player as well as a Pioneer amp, 6”x 9” speakers, and an 8” subwoofer. All US-market FJ60’s came with a 4-speed manual transmission, a manual choke, a 2-barrel carburetor, and 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder 2F engine. I’m selling this FJ60 on consignment for a friend. He purchased it in 2003, with 92,000 miles, in Arizona and it has been in Colorado ever since. It has always lived in the Southwest and is a virtually rust-free. There is just something that makes you smile when you drive an FJ60; it’s a simple, honest, and capable rig that will take you anywhere you want to go. I have been driving it almost exclusively since I it was handed over to me and I absolutely love it. It gets thumbs up and friendly waves on every trip. Come get it before I decide to keep it.

Mechanical

This is a properly sorted FJ60 with no mechanical issues. It comes with all maintenance records since 2003. They show regular oil changes and lots of regular and preventative maintenance. At 149,000 miles it received full service including accessory belts, spark plugs, front brake pads and rotors, and transmission, transfer case, front differential, and rear differential fluids. We also had the compression tested, which read: 110-110-115-105-110-110. It passed emissions with flying colors. Everything works except for the rear defroster and rear washer fluid pump. There is a slight rear main seal leak that has been documented since 2003—a common FJ60 issue. It has been monitored with each major service and has not grown. It does not spot or drip, and does not warrant repairing until the clutch requires replacement, which could be a long time. The four-wheel drive system works flawlessly. Overall this FJ60 is great shape, ready for another 150,000 miles.

Exterior

Red is the best FJ60 exterior color; a rare hue compared the majority of blue, brown, and silver examples. Overall the paint is in good shape, the only glaring spot is a faded area on the hood showing grey primer underneath. I thought about repainting it, but I actually like the patina effect it gives. It is an OEM hood from another FJ60, replaced after my friend dented the original hood four-wheeling. There virtually no rust anywhere. The undercarriage has superficial corrosion, but no significant rot. The body panels are also clean. The only spot is a dent in the lower right front fender with minor rust where the paint was taken off. The rear bumper and front bull bar could be re-painted, but they aren’t horrible for an FJ60. All trim is present and intact. The window glass is crack-free, unpitted, and nicely tinted. The 15-inch wheels are presentable and the tires have over 75% tread remaining.

Interior

The interior is in excellent condition. There are no odors and it has never been smoked in. The pattern of the cloth seats is wonderfully old-school Toyota. The dash is crack-free and has been protected by a fitted carpet cover. The seat cloth and stitching is free of tears, and the driver’s seat has been protected by a sheepskin cover. The carpeting on the back of the fold-down passenger seat is torn, along with some small tears in the cargo area. I would replace this with waterproof carpet if I were keeping it. All interior functions work. The heat blows warm, and the air conditioning blows cold. The stereo sounds fantastic. Overall the inside is in great shape.
