The Dauntless Daily Driver

This Land Cruiser is one that finds its courage in contrast and bold details. It is red and black, classic and modern — an FJ40 custom-built for casual driving in the Rocky Mountain town of Aspen, Colorado. 

The Remake of a Remarkable Find

Our client bought this Land Cruiser from a friend in Aspen and sent it to us for a contract restoration. We gave her weathered warrior a fresh start, perfecting its original armor and reviving every classic detail. Its iconic looks invigorated with a bold shade of Freeborn Red (109), a rugged set of 33” tires, and shiny Toyota hubcaps.

  • Toyota FJ40 steel body
  • Freeborn Red (309) color

Toyota-Bred Performance

This Land Cruiser’s classic powertrain is the stuff of legend. And at the heart of it all - the Toyota 2F engine. Here, that ever-formidable classic has been completely rebuilt and fine-tuned for casual driving. A smooth shifting 5-speed and modern running gear, further refine the ride.
