Up for sell is my 1979 Toyota BJ41 Landcruiser. Equipped with a 2B 3.2L 4 cylinder diesel and 4WD, the Landcruiser has earned its title as one of the most beloved off-road vehicles. Aside from fresh paint, this example sits completely unrestored, while still being in excellent condition. Restorations are costly, so buying an original, clean example is very cost effective. I purchased this vehicle from a private company in Japan. It was meticulously maintained, with service records to show. With 35,287 miles, the vehicle has seen about 1,000 miles a year. To my knowledge, there are only a handful of BJ41s in the United States. Owning this vehicle has given me a new appreciation for not only vintage Toyotas, but off-road vehicles as a whole.
This beautiful truck is mechanically 100% factory original, with the bright red paintwork being the only cosmetic update. As shown in photos, the body panels are straight and show good gaps throughout. Weatherstripping is soft to the touch, and the glass is clear and undamaged front to back.
A peek under hood reveals the rarely-found 2B 3.2 liter inline four cylinder diesel, and it's mated to the H41 four-speed manual transmission. The 93 HP engine maintains all of its OEM parts, starts easily and pulls strong, while the transmission and clutch engage smoothly with no grinding, slipping, or other issues. The transfer case shifts power seamlessly, while fluids have always been serviced on schedule. Additionally, all supporting documentation will accompany the truck.
The OEM suspension gives a firm ride like any old Land Cruiser, but the springs and bushings are in great shape, with no excessive bounce felt or squeaks to be heard. The current rolling stock is approximately 23 years old, but still has 95% tread life remaining, is soft and supple, and has no dry rot or tread separation evident.

All gauges and accessories are functioning, and though the heater blower motor is operable, a judicious buyer should have it replaced at some point as it is on its last legs.
The engine bay could use a cosmetic detailing to bring it up to par with the rest of the truck, but is completely functional as noted before. On the underside, the chassis shows no sign of rust or road grime, and appears just as well cared for as the rest of the vehicle.
