Sent to us from Texas, this 1978 FJ40 is going to be awesome!

We're not new to the idea of preserving the family legacy.  After all, that's how we got started in the business of restoring FJ Land Cruisers.  This is why we were pleased to take on this amazing project.  

Sent to us from Austin, Texas this 1978 FJ40 has been a family-owned vehicle for a few generations.  Although it has some heavy rust spots and hasn't run in years, we'll be bringing it back to "like new" condition with a few modern upgrades for driveability and good looks.    The owner's single request:  "We want to drive it!"   

While the overall goal of the restoration is to keep it authentic Toyota Land Cruiser, a handful of personal touches will make the vehicle look rugged and fun.  To that end, the FJ40 will be lifted 2" on the Old Man Emu suspension, wearing 33" BF Goodrich M/T tires on new Toyota steel wheels and hubcaps.  The engine and transmission will be rebuilt to factory specs and the interior will be custom-tailored in a beautiful tan color.   In the front, the new Expedition bumper by The FJ Company will hold a WARN Zeon 8 winch while LED headlights will adorn the front grill.  

Stay tuned to for updates on its restoration.
