Vehicle History Report

Offered for sale is this 1957 FJ25, which is a very rare and desirable early-production FJ-series Land Cruiser. This early Japanese SUV has benefited form tasteful restoration work. Finished in dark green with medium brown seats, which is very attractive. The deep green paint and body quality is good without appearing over restored, which is appropriate for a utilitarian vehicle such as this. Civilian Toyota FJs were distinguished from military versions with the addition of chrome wheel covers and discreet chrome strips on the horizontal grille. The grille trim and headlight surrounds are in good original condition, while the "dog dish" hubcaps have been restored. Body color steel wheels are fitted with fresh, period-correct Firestone military tires. A single side-mounted spare wheel recalls the early Willys Jeep, and a Jerry can is strapped to the tailgate. Unapologetically basic, the FJ25 remains hugely appealing. The interior of the FJ25 is about as elemental as it gets. The seats are covered in brown vinyl upholstery, with matching boots for the gear shift, transfer case selector, and handbrake. A set of rubber mats protect the painted floors, and the "doors" are limited to a pair of nylon straps to keep occupants in place. The controls, switches, and instruments are good original items set in the body-color dash panel. The lenses and trim pieces appear to be original. Toyota's legendary 3.9-liter inline six presents well, with the block number matching that on the firewall tag. It shows well, with a host of new components including the carburetor and ancillaries, and nice quality paint finishes on the air-cleaner housing, radiator, and other accessories. The motor runs very well and the 4-speed manual transmission is easy to shift. The chassis, axles, and suspension were painted to match the body, and all present in beautiful condition. This is a fantastic piece of automotive history. This rare and fascinating early Land Cruiser is ready to be enjoyed in any number of events, or for merely "cruising" to your local shops. It is one of the earliest of its kind in North America and represents a significant and vital period for Land Cruiser enthusiasts. Please feel free to call James Krueger with any questions at 775-629-6167.
