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.

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 BJ 40 offered here is a desirable diesel variant that is seldom seen in the states. This Land Cruiser received a comprehensive, body-off restoration in 2016 by marque specialists Legacy Overland. The restoration is documented in a photobook, accompanying the sale of the car. Starting with a healthy example that featured the strong 3-liter B-type engine and four-speed manual transmission, the truck was torn down and meticulously brought back to top condition. The engine was refurbished, 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 in black. The overarching theme of the build was to keep true to the look and feel of the original Land Cruiser icon but sprinkled throughout are improvements for a more enjoyable experience, including LED headlights, power steering, and a Bluetooth-enabled retro-classic radio. Offered from a local Amelia Island enthusiast, this BJ 40 is a top example of the vintage Toyota Land Cruiser that would make the ideal vehicle for events such as the Copperstate Overland.
