SPORT SERIES - 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43
One of our favorite Sport models, this FJ43 is being custom built for its new owner in Kansas.
For many years, this Land Cruiser belonged to a potato-growing family business and eventually acquired by an expert mechanic who worked with a Toyota distributor for over 20 years. As a hobby, he partially restored the vehicle and used it for weekend trips throughout the Andes mountains.
Given the extensive care it received from its previous owner, we were excited to acquire this vehicle and make it available for restoration. No rust, matching numbers, fully featured, and a highly desirable last-year production model.
As part of the custom restoration, we're changing the exterior color to Venetian Blue, inspired from a 1987 Porsche 911. The interior will wear custom upholstery in tan, our favorite finishing touch. The car will sport 33" BF Goodrich tires on the Old Man Emu suspension. Fully rebuilt, power will be provided by the upgraded 210 hp Toyota FZ 4.5L engine with programmable fuel injection. For highway driving improvements, the vehicle will be upgraded to a 5-speed manual transmission.
We can't wait to get behind the wheel of this build. Stay tuned for updates on its restoration.
