1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 for Scottsdale, AZ

This is bound to be one of our coolest builds yet.  

Heading to Scottsdale, AZ, our client requested a powerful FJ40 that he could use as a weekend driver and for occasional outings through the Arizona mountains.   It will sport the Toyota 1FZ-E engine, Haltech programmable fuel injection, 5-speed manual transmission, ARB Lockers, front disk brakes, and power steering.   The suspension willl be upgraded to Old Man Emu leaf springs on FOX shocks.  

Inside, we're doing a custom interior using Recaro Speed seats and standard jump seats in the back, all re-upholstered in a beautifull saddle color vinyl.   The dash will sport a digital cluster, dash pads, and a Pioneer receiver for the premium sound system. 

The previous owner kept his Land Cruiser in mostly original condition and free from rust, making this 1980 FJ40 an ideal restoration restoration candidate.  We purchased the vehicle with its original 2F engine and many of its original features intact.  The top is not original to this vehicle, but it will built with a proper reproduction hardtop.  

For inspiration, check out some of our previously restored FJ40 projects.
