This Land Cruiser is your blank canvas. What will you create?

This new arrival from Denver, Colorado, spent most of its driving days near Albuquerque, New Mexico. Little is known about its history, but it has good bones to work with. The body and chassis are in good condition and have matching numbers. Under the hood, you’ll find the original engine, which has been inoperable for years (maybe decades?).  

While the possibilities are endless on a vehicle like this, our first-thought was to do a custom restoration build with some performance modifications. We're thinking a Toyota 1FZ engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. Want a beautiful leather interior? How about a premium sound system? Air conditioning? Custom wheels? We can build anything.  

About the FJ45LV

This spacious family-friendly 4x4 is one of the most sought-after classic Land Cruisers. Its unique body, featuring a large rear overhang and corrugated side panels, was created by Gifu Body Co. Ltd., a coachbuilder once associated with Toyota. The FJ45LV has plenty of character, lots of space, and is extremely rare. Of the 5,080 produced between 1963 and 1967, only about 1,000 made it to the U.S.
