You really are looking at one of the nicest and rarest Toyota Land Cruisers in the World. Imported from Australia, it has undergone a detailed restoration. This is a true collector gem, but is able to be driven anywhere in the world. Restoration assistance was provided by one of the master restoration companies in the United States- Cruiser Corps. This truly historic vehicle is for the distinct individual who wants to own an icon in the automotive world. I am the third owner of this Land Cruiser and the father to its detailed restoration.

The BJ42LX Land Cruisers are coveted by enthusiasts and collectors and introduce even rarer and desired features. These include a fuel efficient, run forever factory diesel engine which is where the “BJ” rather than “FJ” model prefix originates. However, the LX trim offers much more upgraded features including many upgrades in appearance and styling inside and out. On the outside you have the pronounced “LX” emblems, the iconic triple intermittent windshield wipers, rear sliding windows, and front pop out window vents. On the inside it shares little with the classic FJ40 or BJ42. The LX has detailed body panels and trim that offer styling and noise reduction. All the factory seams and bolts are covered with factory trip and panels including the rear doors. Factory carpet was added for additional style, noise reduction and temperature control. A factory tachometer, two interior lights that come on when doors are opened and heavy duty sun visors are some of the exclusive features. The most notable upgrade to the LX is the exclusive zebra brown striped seating for six that allows you to take the entire family to the trail or car show.

The 1983 BJ42LX was never sold in the United States due to Diesel emissions and it had only a small production run of 3 years- From 1982 to 1984- which was end of worldwide production for the FJ40 platform. The 5-speed transmission and full floating rear axle was only offered in 1983 and 1984 and very few were configured and sold with factory Air Conditioning and Factory Power Steering. Combined, this equates to a very rare Land Cruiser with only 113,275 miles (six digit odometer, so no rollovers). It is so rare that even the leading restoration and parts companies in the US have never even seen one configured with the 5 Speed, Factory Power Steering and Factory Air Conditioning. It truly may be one of only a few to exist today.

There were only two bubbles under the paint that had to be restored under the side and rear windows. When removing the interior rear brown trim molding, there were two spots of rust on the vertical trim rails behind the moldings- each about 1 inch in length on either side. These were cut out and replaced with a donor rail parts as a part of the restoration work done by Cruiser Corps Restoration. These were blasted and painted with the rest of the body.

Additional steps have been taken to prevent any rust from attacking this rare classic including POR15 undercoating and Ziebart inside Door and Frame Sealant. See link to learn more at Ziebart dot com. Rust Protection | Ziebart

Excellent specimen. Been drooling over the pics for some time, and they're posted elsewhere on a "Want a 40" thread.

Good luck with the sale.

That's my sentiments, exactly.

When I had the budget for a garage queen, I couldn't find one. Now, they're everywhere, and the budget doesn't exist.

Second one out of OKC, of all places and hour away, listed for sale in two weeks, both perfect. Love this LC.

And one of the few instances where the term "rare" may he warranted.

I think I could justify divesting myself of an organ or appendage for something like that.
