Another beautiful film from Petrolicious detailing one owner’s decades-long relationship with his Toyota FJ40.

This gorgeous, restored 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 long bed pickup looks better than new. It’s said to have traveled 53,000 miles since new. Much has been replaced and it features a new Warn winch. Bring a Trailer notes that it came from the factory with Air conditioning and power steering, two desirable options. A 4-spd manual and the Toyota 2F, inline six round out the specs.

The truck is located in Montana. Bidding currently stands at $39,800 with about 5 days on the clock.

Update 4/29/2013: The seller seems to have ended the auction early and sold the truck offline.

Update 1/20: Lot 1555, the mustard yellow FJ40, sold today for an even more staggering $88,000, including buyer’s commission. Wow.

Update 1/17: The beige FJ40, lot 751, sold today for a staggering $59,400, including buyer’s commission.

Among the many cars well-known auction house, Barrett-Jackson, will offer at its Scottsdale sale this week, two restored Toyota FJ40s stand out, a 1981 model in classic, mustard yellow, and a 1978 model in beige. Both look like they’ve come straight from the factory.

For me, the mustard yellow version pushes all the right buttons. It is described as having a factory-correct, removable hardtop, a folding windscreen, rear jump seats, and a balanced and blueprinted 4.2-liter, inline-6 engine, with an H55 5-speed, manual transmission. The suspension is from Old Man Emu. The wheels are OEM, which, to me, always look better than aftermarket. The truck is said to have been fully restored in 2007/2008.

The beige truck is also said to have been restored with less than 100 miles on the clock since then. It also features the 4.2-liter, 2F engine, this time, however, mated to a 4-speed, manual transmission. Although it’s not explicitly stated, this one also appears to have a removable hardtop, folding windscreen, and rear jump seats. In addition, it’s said to include the optional rear heater. Both trucks appear to have factory roll bars.

The mustard yellow FJ40 is lot 1555 and will be auctioned on Sunday. The beige FJ40 is lot 751 and will be offered on Thursday. No estimates are given but a look into Barrett-Jackson’s auction results (search for “FJ-40”) reveals that restored FJ40s, in original trim, have sold in the high $20,000s.

More pictures after the jump.

Note: two other FJ40s with Chevy V8s will also be offered, lots 403 and 544.

Here’s another nice, vintage 4×4 find: a 1969 Toyota FJ40 showing 52,000 miles on the odometer. The ad states that it’s equipped with its original 3.8l, F145, straight-six engine and an old-school, three-on-the-tree, manual transmission. Other nice, stated features include dual factory heaters and jump seats.

The ad states that this FJ40 was treated to a frame-off restoration in 2006 with minimal miles since then. The white-on-beige color scheme is classic-looking plus.

The truck is located in Colorado and is being offered by a dealer on ebay. Bidding currently stands at $14,600 with about 4 days left on the clock. There’s no “buy it now” button but the ad states they’ll sell it for $22,000.

More photos after the jump.

Update: The truck generated a high bid of $18,200 but the seller ended the auction early and cancelled all bids.
