The Toyota J40
is the model designation for a Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series
made from 1960 until 1984 (in Brazil, where it was known as the Toyota Bandeirante
, it was made from 1959 until 2001). Most 40 series Land Cruisers were built as two-door vehicles with slightly larger dimensions than a Jeep CJ
The model was available as the FJ40 series (with F engines) and also BJ40/41/42 (short wheelbase), BJ43/44/46 (middle wheelbase) or HJ45/47 (long wheelbase) designation where it had a Diesel engine
. Brazilian built Land Cruisers (Bandeirantes) with Mercedes-Benz engines received OJ50-series modelcodes.
References to the series in this article will be to the J40 series unless referring to one of the petrol (FJ40/42 – 2WD) or diesel (BJ4#/HJ4#) models specifically.
