Much like the vintage Land Rover, the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser has a devoted following all on its own. Both vehicles were developed in the early-1950s and were based on the Willys M38 Jeep, which earned worldwide respect in WWII. The FJ40 also made considerable inroads into the Jeep market in the U.S. in the 1960s and 1970s. The last FJ40s were imported to the U.S. in 1983, after being replaced by a softer Land Cruiser SUV.

Running with a 4.2-liter, 125-hp inline 2F six-cylinder engine with a manual four-speed transmission and four-wheel drive, this example is completely frame-off restored and completed earlier in 2016, and is obviously offered in excellent condition. This very nice FJ40 comes with additional features include opposing jump seats in the rear, rear-mounted spare, heater/defroster, factory rollbar system, power brakes, factory steel wheels with hubcaps and BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A tires. Restoration documents and invoices will accompany the Land Cruiser as it begins its next exciting chapter.
