1970 Toyota Landcruiser FJ40

Right hand drive manual; relocated from Bali with the vendor, who has owned the FJ40 over twelve years; big 4.2-litre (F2) engine fitted

ANM 819H was first registered in Bali Indonesia in late 1970. The VIN suggests it came off the production line in late July 1970. Vehicles must be re-registered every five years in Bali and the registration documents have consistently shown the original registration details with the 1F engine 3,878cc from the year of manufacture; although the vehicle has a later 2F 4,230 cc engine, presumably installed in the late 70s or early 80’s The original colour is ‘Biru’, blue in Indonesian and this is typically used to refer to a darker royal blue colour, light blue is usually referred to as ‘Biru muda’. The current owner acquired the vehicle back in 2009 from a friend in Bali who had also had the car for the preceding 10 years and at the time it was a desert sand colour. At this point, the engine was re-bored which made a massive difference to the way it ran and the performance and torque levels. The vendor reports that the engine has run beautifully since this time with amazing torque and could climb any mountain Bali had to offer, or easily pulling through the deep sand of Bali’s tropical beaches.  ANM 819H has a commendably rust-free original chassis and a new roof was handmade in Bali in 2010. This was the family car in Bali and was christened ‘Jenny Jeep’ In 2011-12 it spent around 18 months off the road in the hands of a local expert FJ40 mechanic, who rewired the electrics, having spent a long-time in sourcing original Toyota electrical parts and components. The car gained a whole new level of reliability having had this re-wiring work done and was back on the road again in late 2013. The next major job was the bodywork. In early 2018, it was taken back to the metal and resprayed in dark royal blue. In late 2018 the vehicle was shipped back to the UK and into storage and has been little used since.
