Conceived in the African Wild
On a recent trip to Africa, a man from Phoenix, Arizona, ventured out on a Safari. On that safari, he encountered a classic Land Cruiser and took it on a tour of the African wilderness. It made such an impression on him, that when he got back to camp, he pulled out his iPad, searched for “FJ40 restoration” and discovered The FJ Company. Then, a different kind of adventure began.
After a search of our inventory, and some back and forth, our client chose a 1978 FJ43 to transform into his own custom-built 4x4. Then, we embarked on one of our signature full frame-off restorations. As with many of our Classic builds, this FJ43 retains most of its late 70’s features, including a Toyota 2F engine, four-speed manual transmission, front disc brakes, and rounded front grille. To add a vintage touch, we went a little further back in time and brought back some pre-1978 side mirrors and turn signals. A Beige custom soft top provides cover from the hot Arizona sun, while a Vintage Air A/C keeps the cabin from losing its cool. Additional updates like BF Goodrich® All-Terrain tires and Old Man Emu suspension, ensure this classic 4x4 is equally at home on the pavement or trail.
