THE TOYOTA LAND CRUUISER

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.

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 wheelbases, 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 iconic BJ40 offered here is a desirable diesel variant that is seldom seen in the states. The truck has just received a comprehensive, fully documented, body-off restoration by marque specialists. Every aspect of this truck has been gone through and brought back to better than new condition. Beginning with a healthy example that featured the indestructible 3-liter B-type engine and four-speed manual transmission, the truck was torn down and meticulously brought back to top condition. The engine has been rebuilt, along with the transmission and clutch. The body was stripped to bare metal and media blasted prior to paint. The exterior is finished in a stunning and unique Cadet Blue while the interior has been clad with a blend of premium saddle stitched leather and diamond-patterned alcantara. The overarching theme of the build was to keep true to the look and feel of the original icon, but sprinkled throughout are improvements for a more enjoyable experience including items, such as LED headlights, power steering, and a Bluetooth-enabled retro-classic radio. Accompanying the vehicle is extensive photo documentation of the world class restoration. With room for plenty of friends to hit the road or trail, this BJ40 is a top example of the vintage Toyota Land Cruiser that would make the ideal vehicle for events, such as the Copperstate Overland.
