THE TOYOTA LAND CRUISER

The Toyota Land Cruiser, in its many sizes and configurations has had a long and successful history of reliable service through the most rugged of conditions. Patterned after the ubiquitous Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser demonstrated that Toyota could produce much more than just economical cars.

Introduced in 1960, the FJ40 and its variants remained in production for a quarter century, the kind of longevity that demonstrates true value, quality and utility. They became indispensible in unsettled and remote areas of the world, hauled safaris through Africa, developed a devoted following among America's off-road culture and have spawned a host of imitators. Toyota itself paid homage to the model in 2004 when it introduced the retro-styled FJ Cruiser to capitalize on the continuing image and popularity of the Land Cruiser some twenty years after the original's production run ended.

The Land Cruiser's popularity and utility is reflected in the number of variants in which it was built. There were in fact so many that it is probably impossible to identify all of them, but they came in short, medium, long and extra long wheelbase, with a variety of roofs, half cabs, soft tops and doors, with four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. They climb mountains, cross deserts, ford rivers, balance their way over rock falls – they are one of the archetypical utility vehicles and today finding a good vintage example can be difficult.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Presented here is surely one of the best-restored examples of the legendary Toyota Land Cruisers available. Like most cars in the FJ40's price-range, it can be difficult to justify a full restoration, but the beautiful example offered here is an exception to that rule. Believed to have had just a few owners from new, this rugged Toyota was recently treated to a thorough restoration to factory specification by the Miami based experts at the FJ Company. Finished in Heath Grey, the FJ is offered with a comprehensive history file from new, and is ready for the new owners adventures.
