This FJ40 was designed for a client in Richmond, Virginia who wanted a reliable weekend driver - a Land Cruiser with classic looks and modern ride quality. We began with well-maintained FJ40 with a solid chassis, straight body panels, and zero rust - the perfect candidate for a frame-off restoration. Once this rigorous process was complete, our client hand-selected an array of classic and custom features, creating an FJ40 made for his kind of weekend.
The exterior of this FJ40 is a mishmash of features from Land Cruisers past, finished in a striking shade of Heath Gray (113). Inside, Corbeau® Sport seats are available for driver and passenger, with classic jump seats in the back. The interior is trimmed in gray vinyl, with an exposed metal dash, retro knobs, and gauges.
Classic Might, Modern Ride
Our team rebuilt the original 2F engine, breathing new life into the carburetor that kept this 4x4 running strong for decades. Ride quality is further enhanced with a 5-speed manual transmission and Old Man Emu suspension. Revitalized power steering and front disc brakes, equip this FJ40 with the kind of handling and stopping power you’d expect from a modern 4x4.
This FJ40 was born in the tradition of classic utility. Yet, you can still adjust the cabin temperature or connect your iPhone® to make a call or hear your favorite tunes. The modern world is always within reach, yet it never overwhelms the enduring qualities of the past.
