The Hudson Valley Daily Driver
Among the busy highways and riverside parkways in upstate New York, this FJ40 rides again. A hardtop with a vintage vibe, it’s sure to turn a few heads in our client's hometown of Westchester.
When it comes to legends, not many compare to the FJ40 with its hard-core steel body, iconic grille, rugged hooks and exposed hinges and bolts. During our full, frame-off restoration process, we reclaimed this ride's innate FJ-ness and equipped it with a few rugged parts and accessories. LED exterior lighting illuminates the road ahead, while the Warn ZEON 8 winch, custom-painted jerry-can and heavy duty tires remind you that the FJ40 was made to go anywhere.
Do classic Land Cruisers do highways? Let's put it this way: When you've got a Toyota 1FZ with 210 horses under the hood, a smooth shifting 5-speed manual, and upgraded suspension like this one does, your answer could be "yeah" or it could be a "hell yeah!" We prefer the latter. But, there's more! All of the 4-wheel drive components on this FJ40 have been completely restored — after all, the Land Cruiser is an off-road legend, and we'd like to keep it that way.
Open the door to this classic Land Cruiser, and you’re greeted with a blend of classic looks and modern comfort. Heated Corbeau Sport seats keep things toasty up front, while classic jump seats stay true to that old-school Land Cruiser look. Entertainment is supplied by the crystal clear sound of our premium sound system - with iPhone® and Bluetooth® connectivity. But let's face it, when you own a Land Cruiser, the real show begins the moment you open the door.
The G40 Expedition brings the classic adventure into new territory with a Toyota 1GR-FE engine and other modern upgrades. Build yours today!
