G43 Heritage In Progress: October 2019 Delivery

Rough and tough, yet classic and cool, the Toyota 40 Series Land Cruiser holds a very special place in the hearts of auto enthusiasts across the world. At The FJ Company, we share that enthusiasm and love of these iconic vehicles, and focus our craft on bringing to market modern versions of this classic ride for today’s driver.

Our flagship model is The FJ Company G40, an on- and off-road friendly 4x4, custom-built by hand - using an authentic classic 40 series Land Cruiser that has been re-engineered and assembled with modern components from Toyota.

Presented here is the G43 - medium wheelbase - infused with our Heritage trim.  Our most classic looking vehicle, you will notice this in our deep respect for the original lines of the 40 series, the feel of certain components, the sound of the engine, and the overall ride experience.

Start with the Real Deal

This project began, as all of ours do, with the authentic chassis and body of a 1981 FJ43 Land Cruiser, painstakingly restored by our team of craftsman, hot-dip galvanized, and finished in semi-matte black powder coat. Much of what you’ll see on the exterior of this vehicle is OEM: the emblems, bolts, hooks, and grille stay true to that classic foundation. Even the jerry can and the 8274 winch by WARN feel like the kind of accessories you’d put on your Land Cruiser back in the day.

Classic Exterior Highlights

  • Toyota FJ43 steel body, galvanized components
  • Custom steel hardtop
  • OEM emblems
  • OEM 80s-style grille
  • Jerry can
  • 8274 Warn winch

Give it our Heritage Trim

This G43 is a tribute to the past:  Cadet Blue exterior color, 16” FJCO Heritage aluminum wheels, and Retro fog lights.  CNC-machined interior door handles in silver feel both custom and vintage.

  • Toyota Cadet Blue
  • 16" FJCO Heritage Wheels
  • 285/75/16 All-Terrain or Mud-Terrain BFGoodrich® tires

Flex Some Muscle

Under the hood, you’ll find a factory fresh Toyota 1GR-FE engine paired to Toyota’s 5-speed manual transmission.  This is what modern Land Cruisers are made of.

  • 5-speed (H150F) manual transmission
  • Custom stainless steel exhaust
  • BORLA® ProXS muffler

Never Compromise the Ride

The G43 may look like a classic 4x4, but it’s a lot more comfortable to drive. We’ve got a coiled suspension up front, and, to give you more safety and control in aggressive driving conditions, this build is equipped with electronic stability and traction control, and anti-lock brakes. But of course, if you’re one of those enthusiasts who thinks these modern wonders of engineering impede the driving experience, just hit the OLD SCHOOL button and let ‘er rip.

Excite The Senses

Classic Land Cruisers have character and craftsmanship - the kind you can’t find in modern vehicles. And the cabin of the G43 is no different. But here, retro features mingle with the modern contours and custom details of our Heritage trim - creating a one-of-a-kind interior that’s bold, luxurious, and rugged - all at the same time.

With a bluetooth enabled premium sound system, you can make calls, get directions, and access your favorite music wherever you are - no cables required. And features that are largely absent from classic cars don’t hesitate to make their presence known here: modern lighting, rearview cameras, climate control, and digital display.
