1997 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 40th Anniversary is up for auction

In 1951, Toyota launched the first generation of what would later become its longest running series of models, the Toyota Land Cruiser. Celebrating four decades of the series, in 1997 Toyota produced 4,744 limited edition cars of the J80 generation. One of them, the 1997 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80 40th Anniversary is up for auction.

This FZJ80 40th Anniversary is powered by a 4.5L 1FZ-FE inline-six engine with 212 hp (158 kW) and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to all wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission and a dual-range transfer case. It is mounted on 16″ alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin LTX M/S tires.

The car is finished in Antique Sage Pearl (one of two colors available, the other is Emerald Green) and is in good condition. It is equipped with 40th Anniversary Edition fender decals, a sunroof, power-adjustable side mirrors, running boards, a receiver hitch, a rear wind deflector, rear window wiper, and locking front, center, and rear differentials. Braking is handled by four-wheel discs with ABS.

Inside, the front bucket seats are upholstered in two-tone tan leather, which also covers the second-row bench, and third-row folding seats. In front of the driver are a four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel and a six-digit odometer showing 26,833 miles. Additional equipment includes power-adjustable front seats, a CD stereo, automatic climate control, cruise control, and a digital clock.

In preparation for sale, the car was serviced, which included replacing the fuel injectors, spark plugs, spark plug wires, and various hoses as well as performing a fluid service and recharging the air conditioning system.

The car has a clean Carfax report that shows no accidents or other damage. It comes with a clean Wyoming title in the owner’s name.

The auction ends on April 28 and the highest bid at the time of writing was $125,000 USD.
