A bold return.
Our client, a Land Cruiser aficionado, dreamed of one day owning an authentic 1976 FJ40 in one of the most iconic Toyota colors of all time: Freeborn Red (color code #309). As a company that specializes in these kinds of dreams, we were excited to make his a reality.
This project began with an FJ40 with a 2F engine - one of the first Land Cruisers available in Latin America with this type of engine. Its first owner used it to commute into town, while another took it on off-road adventures. Its most recent owner was a policeman who used it as a weekend driver.
Now that it’s back at our shop we’re excited to begin a frame-off restoration. We’ll be doing a total engine overhaul and completely refurbished interior. The chassis and frame will be sandblasted and repainted, and we’ll add new, original emblems, lights, and a custom soft top to replace the aftermarket cabin.
Heading to the Tarrytown, New York-area, this classic FJ40 is bound to turn some heads.
About the FJ40
For over five decades, the FJ40 has been admired and enjoyed by Land Cruiser fans across the globe. While its legacy it built upon its time-tested durability and long production run (1960-1984), its white headlight bezel and iconic good looks stand out in any crowd.
