Introducing our Signature G45-S. A living tribute to the Toyota FJ45 Troopy, including features from Land Cruisers past and present. Oh, and that “S” stands for "supercharged" – so buckle up and get ready to experience the classic Land Cruiser you’ve been waiting for!
This project began with the authentic chassis and body of a right-hand drive 1980’s FJ45 Land Cruiser, that was then painstakingly restored and rebuilt by our team of craftsmen. Much of what you’ll see on the exterior of this vehicle: the OEM emblems, bolts, hooks, and grille stay true to that classic foundation. But you’ll also see custom touches throughout. To start with, a well executed 4-door conversion adds a new level of utility and comfort to this vehicle. The gas cap ‘delete’, brings a touch of the 70’s into the 80’s body. The custom dual jerry-can and Warn 8274 winch makes it ready for adventure.
While this G45-S is a tribute to the past, it has also been infused with a touch of modern flair. Enter our Signature trim: EvoCorse aluminum wheels, and bumper-integrated Baja Designs fog lights invoke a rally-inspired design, while the CNC-machined aluminum gas cap, door handles, and side mirrors painted in contrasting Gunmetal Gray feel both custom and vintage. The side mirrors in particular, combine the original 1960’s design elements with the larger dimensions of the late 80’s mirrors.
Custom Exterior Highlights:
Under the hood, you’ll find 318 horses, ready to let loose. How did we get here? We started with the Toyota 1GR-FE engine and we supercharged it, because well, why not? So if you’re looking for more power and more torque in a classic package, congratulations, you’ve found it. And now, Toyota’s tried-and-true engine can breathe a little easier thanks to an extra set of gills and a throaty TIG-welded stainless steel exhaust. The engine has been mated to a 5-speed manual with spirited shifting and plenty of coast in 5th gear.
The G45-S may look like a classic 4x4, but it’s a lot more comfortable to drive. We’ve got a coiled suspension up front, and the king of shocks (yes, KING shocks) - now does our bidding. And, to give you more safety and control in aggressive driving conditions, this build is equipped with anti-lock brakes.
Suspension and Ride Highlights:
Classic Land Cruisers have character and craftsmanship - the kind you can’t find in modern vehicles. And the cabin of the G45-S is no different. But here, retro features mingle with the modern contours and custom details of our Signature trim - creating a one-of-a-kind interior that’s bold, luxurious, and rugged - all at the same time.
Interior Design Highlights:
When you get behind the wheel of the G45-S, you don’t have to leave the modern world behind you. With wireless Apple CarPlay and a wireless phone charger, 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, rear-view camera, climate control, and digital displays.
