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 indispensable 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.

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 a 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 and 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

The desirable and iconic FJ40 offered here - A car that has had just three enthusiastic owners from new - has just received a comprehensive, factory correct restoration by the marque specialists - The FJ Company. Beginning with a healthy example that featured the 2F engine and four-speed manual transmission, The FJ Company set out to bring this FJ back to top condition. The engine has been refurbished, along with the transmission and clutch. New brakes were installed, while the body was media blasted prior to paint. Many other systems and parts were reconditioned as needed. This FJ is presented in striking Freeborn Red over a neatly contrasting grey interior, and offered with books and owners manuals, tools, invoices and photos of the comprehensive restoration.

With room for plenty of friends to hit the road, this FJ40 is a top example of the vintage Toyota Land Cruiser, restored with no expense spared by one of the most respected marque experts in the business. It deserves your close inspection today.
