Default 1977 Fj40 Land Cruiser 400 Sb Chevy V8

1977 Toyota FJ40
- 400ci Small Block Chevy V8 w/ 4 barrel Holley.
- GM power steering and tilt column.
- 4-speed Toyota Land Cruiser transmission and transfer case.

This is a project that I started a long time ago. I had to stop and it has been sitting ever since. It has a lot of new parts on it. It also has a few things that need finishing or were done as a temporary solution that need to be done correctly. Things that need finishing are some wiring, shock mounts, tailgate latches, and a roll bar. Temporary things that need fixed are the gas line location coming out of the tank and battery box location.
Located in Cleveland, OH. $5000.00 Delivery negotiable.

The motor was already swapped in when I bought it. Swapping in a different transmission was on my list of things I was going to do later. I had the one that is in there and the transfer case inspected and they are fine. Like I said earlier, the project stopped, and I don't know when I would get back to it.

I was able to get a couple pics. May be able to get more later. The vehicle is not at my house, I keep it at my fathers house.

I have run them both way's, toyota tranny's and transfercase and also turbo 350-400 tranny's with gm transfercase with stock v-8 and built 383's, They both held up great. But if you want to keep the stock toyota axles your best bet is to keep at least the toyota transfer case. Make sure your set up is right on all angles and drops, it makes a big difference. check my profile pick,this is my last one I built (miss it really bad). looking to get another one or buiild one. So PLEASE SEND MORE PICS TO tobytracie@charter.net
