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.

If you’re looking for an interesting rally vehicle, you could do worse than this 1987 VW Vanagon in full German ambulance spec. The ad on The Samba states that the sirens and lights work, and that the original stethoscope, medical kit, and rubber gloves are included.

Mechanically, it features a euro-spec 2.1L, carbureted, water-cooled engine, a manual transmission, and Syncro ride height (though it’s not a Syncro).

This unique German vehicle is listed in Grass Valley, CA for $6000 obo.

I spotted this 1986 Toyota 4Runner on Bring a Trailer today. While it’s not quite “time traveler” perfect —the seats show some stains — it does look to be in very nice shape with new tires, shocks, and more, according to the expired ebay auction.

This truck is one of the rare 22R-TE, factory turbo models and has an automatic transmission. It’s said to have about 144,000 miles.

I’m not sure if this truck is still available. The current Craigslist ad has been flagged for removable. There is a thread about the truck on T4R.org and the Bring a Trailer page lists the seller’s phone number in the comments, if you’re interested.

The vehicle is located just down the road in Guerneville, CA (West Sonoma County) and was last offered at $12k obo. It failed to meet reserve on ebay with a high bid of $7,379.

The time portal keeps opening up. Here’s the latest car to drive out. A 43k-mile, 1986 Subaru Brat. Although I’ve never driven one, I’ve always had a soft spot for these scrappy, little 4x4s. This one is equipped with its original 1.8l flat-four engine and 4-spd. manual gearbox.

Although this one isn’t fitted with the optional, rear-facing seats, the seller has a set he’ll include for an extra $350, according to the ebay ad. What is included at no extra charge are what appear to be factory T-tops. Pretty sweet.

This Subaru is located in Torrance, California (basically L.A.). Bidding currently stands at $9,500 with five days on the clock. See the rest of the post for more pics.

Update: This Brat sold for $13,200.

This looks like quite a nice rarity, a fully restored 1971 Land Rover Series IIA 109, that’s been re-powered with an intercooled Cummins 4BT turbo diesel engine. In addition to the roof rack, it’s fitted with a custom bumper, 8,000-lb Warn winch, and dual fuel tanks. From the sound of the ad and the look of the photos, this is a first-class truck.

Can you imagine yourself sitting in that clean, purposeful interior as you rumble across the terrain? The seller is asking $31,000. More images below. The seller offers a full write-up on his blog.

Just where is the time portal from which people are pulling these pristine 80s-era 4x4s? This sub-10k-mile, 1980 GMC Jimmy isn’t even covered in ecto-plasmic slime. It looks straight from the showroom floor.

This model, in Sierra Blazer K5 trim, is equipped with a 350 V8, automatic transmission, and removable half-cab rear top. It’s rare to see one in such stock condition.

If you want this one, you’d better hurry. It’ll only be on ebay for a few more hours. Bidding currently stands at $17,600. The seller reports that it sold at a Barrett Jackson auction for $20,500 in 2006.

Update: This truck sold for $18,800.

While this 1980 International Scout II just misses qualifying for the Relic Run, I think it’s pretty cool none the less: Tahitian Red paint, 345 c.i. V8, Torqueflite automatic transmission, and Dana 44 axles, not to mention those cool, desert-sunset fender decals. An added bonus: the roof is removable.

The seller mentions a recent restoration and engine overhaul. Check with them on the details, if you’re interested. The truck is for sale in Atlanta at Motorcar Studios for $18,900.

Here’s something you don’t see every day, a 1959 Chevy NAPCO Suburban. NAPCO was the company that made aftermarket 4-wheel-drive systems for GM trucks in the 1950s, before GM made them in-house. This truck has reportedly had a frame-off restoration, including a rebuild of its 6-cylinder engine, and has covered less than 1,000 miles since then.

Although it can seat at least seven people, this is a two-door truck, not counting the clam shell rear tailgate.

This one is available in Colorado via ebay. Buy it now for $29,950 or make an offer.

I don’t know if this falls into the “too good to be true” category but there’s a reportedly restored 1947 CJ2A Willys Jeep on Craigslist in Illinois right now for $8500.

I think these early jeeps look great in gray and the rear-mounted PTO winch is a bonus. Drill down for more pics.
