Freeborn Red: ’74 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser
Well, what is left of the paint is Freeborn Red. We had a FJ60 in this color and it is really neat. What we like about this FJ is the originality of it. Yes, of course, the paint is a tip-off, but finding an almost solid FJ40 convertible is not an easy thing. This one has typical corrosion in the lower part of body in the rear but it appears to be localized. We think with this one, it is an easy fix. Same with the paint, although one could leave it as is and wait until you see if the mechanicals hold up. These aren’t difficult to get freshened up. The seller correctly points out that these can go for big bucks at auction. This one is far from that. The mechanical components on these FJ40s are robust and not difficult to find parts or expertise. The hardtop versions seem to be available more often than these convertibles.
