Toyota FJ 40 (Bandeirante) - 1990

For sale is a complete frame off, nut and bolt restoration of a Toyota FJ 40 1990 (Bandeirante - OJ50LV). Truck is in absolute pristine condition. No aspect of the full frame off restoration process has been overlooked, as each part has been meticulously restored.

“Bandeirante” is a Brazilian version of the FJ40. These trucks were produced in Brazil until 2001. Truck is factory equipped with a very reliable Mercedes 4 Liters diesel engine (OM-364) and a 4 gears transmission.

Restoration began with a solid frame and body in very good condition, it was completed dissembled, frame was removed; sand blasted and coated with a corrosion resistant paint for max protection. All the body parts were also sand blasted to bare metal and painted in Toyota Beige in separate pieces, and then carefully re-assembled on the chassis.

Lots of professional work has been done on this truck, below is a bullet point list of the build details and new parts. This, in no way, represents everything that went into this restoration:


Front and rear axles were fully rebuilt with new bearings and seals. Rear axle rack and pinion were also replaced with Toyota OEM parts

This truck has all the proper import paperwork. It has a clean Indiana title in my name. Also, paper work includes an original letter from Toyota stating the Toyota manufacture plant were the vehicle were produced, manufacture year, model, VIN number and engine number (all number matches)

Truck has the original front fascia with squared headlights for this year; it can be easily converted to the common regular rounded headlights if desired for an additional cost.

Ps. Ebay does not recognize the VIN, so I used my Kia VIN for this ad.
