Toyota resumes making spare parts for the Land Cruiser 40 Series
To further its GR Heritage Parts program, Toyota Gazoo Racing will now be producing select replacement parts for the iconic Land Cruiser FJ40 as well.
56 new items for six famous Toyota classics will be added to the Gazoo Racing list this year, including a wide range of Land Cruiser 40 parts. Authorized dealerships will be selling them alongside parts for modern cars.
As of now, GR makes 33 continuation parts for the 1967MY 2000GT, the 3rd and 4th generation Supra, and the Sprinter Trueno (AE86). Some of the FJ40 components are on display at the Tokyo Auto Salon right now.
The Land Cruiser 40 Series came out in 1960 through 1984. The same model lingered until 2001 in Brazil, where it was locally known as the Bandeirante. Back in its time, the model was considered innovative thanks to a reduction gear and diesel engines. Various vehicles from the series came equipped with 3- and 4-liter Toyota B and H diesels, as well as Mercedes-Benz four-cylinders: OM 314, OM 324, and OM 364.
Those who preferred petrol engines could get a Toyota F unit with 3.9-4.2 liters of displacement and between 106 and 135 metric horsepower (105-133 hp; 78 – 100 kW).
