1980 Toyota Land Cruiser
Every now and then we get projects that are more challenging than others. This is a case in point.
Our client from Maryland called in with a seemingly simple request. He wanted us to restore his beloved 1980 FJ40 which he had purchased back in 2012. At that time, the vehicle was in good condition, but the owner wanted it to be pristine.
So what's the catch? Soon after the purchase, the vehicle was sent out for a full frame off restoration (we won't disclose where). Sadly, four years later, the owner had yet to see meaningful progress on his truck. Our job was to fly over to the restoration facility, inventory what was left of the vehicle, pick it up, and start from scratch. We took on the job and committed to doing it on budget and in schedule.
The pictures below will show you the FJ40 after it was partially re-assembled at our shop in Miami. Stay tuned for updates as we start the restoration process soon.
