We sell custom built Toyota FJ25, FJ40, FJ43, FJ45, FJ60, and FJ70 Land Cruisers. All of our Land Cruisers are restored to like-new condition, and most include minor modifications to improve driveability and reliability on US highways. For example, power steering, front disk brakes, roll bar, and a more modern suspension. Most of our clients use their vehicles as weekend drivers and a number of them as collectibles.
While our vehicles are delivered looking new and smelling new, they are still considered and registered as classic cars. The year of registration, i.e., 1983, will depend on the specific chassis that we used for your project. In essence, we take an authentic classic Toyota chassis and body and restore those components to "like new” condition. Everything else, including internal engine components, interiors, electrical systems, windows, tires, brake pads, etc. are in fact new.
The FJ Company models like the Sport or Signature have a modern engine and drivetrain, but they do not have modern safety features such as air bag systems or anti-lock brakes. These models will behave as intended back in the 70’s and 80’s, but they will have improved performance in steering, braking, acceleration, overall drivability and comfort.
Yes! We offer a 1 year Service Agreement that has comprehensive coverage on issues that may arise with your vehicle. Once you submit an order online, your sales rep can share details of that program. Apart from that, upon taking delivery of your vehicle, you will be assigned a company technician to advise on maintenance and to source any parts you may need in the future.
Yes! Classic Motors, LLC d/b/a The FJ Company, is a licensed and insured Florida automotive dealer, with satellite locations in Dallas, Texas, and Aspen, Colorado.

The title, bill of Sale, and all documentation will be properly completed and ready for you to re-register the vehicle in your State or country of residence. This helps to protect you and the valuable investment you have made.

Yes! We provide a white-glove restoration service to customers world wide. Ship your vehicle to our facility in Miami, Florida, and we'll take care of the rest. Your vehicle will go through our state of the art facility in Bogota, Colombia and it returns twelve months later in "like new" condition. During the process, you will receive monthly photo updates in high-resolution. Pricing and further details are available here.
We follow the same build process for every custom Land Cruiser that we sell, irrespective of the original vehicle's condition (learn more about the process here). In industry lingo, these are typically called "frame-off" restorations, but we take it one step further and replace most components with new parts.
We don't do partial restorations, paint jobs, engine rebuilds, etc.
The process takes approximately 9 to 12 months from order to delivery. Once you submit an order through our website, your sales rep will advise on the exact availability of production slots. More exotic models will require additional work and will likely take longer. On average, approximately 2000 to 3000 man-hours go into the process.
Our custom built 40 Series Land Cruisers (FJ40 and FJ43) typically start at US $85,000* and can go up to $200,000 for highly customized versions. Please use our online builder to price one out to your specifications. Our pricing includes the donor vehicle, parts, labor, photo documentation of the build process, a 1 year Service Agreement, and shipping the vehicle to you within the Continental U.S.**
Toyota Land Cruiser 60 and 70 Series vehicles have a base price of $150,000. Very exotic or rare models like the FJ45LV and certain 20 Series vehicles have base price of $200,000.
*Pricing subject to change at any time.
* *If you would like your Land Cruiser shipped internationally, additional transport and customs fees will apply. Please note that our 1 year service agreement is void if the vehicle is used overseas.
Yes, significantly more. And it’s because our vehicles are built to “like new” condition. That means most components are new OEM replacement parts or high-quality reproductions. In addition to that, our vehicles are all built with several improvements for comfort and drivability. For example, they all have, at a minimum, a new Toyota 5-speed transmission*, an improved power steering system*, more modern suspension, front disc brakes, roll bar, digital stereo, and a Vintage Air A/C and Heater.
Apart from that, our pricing includes shipping and a 1 year Service Agreement within the Continental US. Try that on eBay :)
* Starting for all orders as of Oct 2017.
Most of the customers that send us their Land Cruiser to restore do so because they have a very unique model or a strong emotional attachment to it. Generally speaking, the restoration and shipping costs will be largely the same as ordering one from our website. Get in touch with us for a more detailed estimate on your restoration!
We offer our clients several ways to own the Land Cruiser of their dreams:
Be warned! Some sellers on eBay, Craigslist, and other used car dealers are selling classic Land Cruisers and saying they were restored by The FJ Company. While some of our builds have been re-sold on other websites, the only way to guarantee that you’re buying an authentic restoration from The FJ Company, is to purchase a build through this website, or to contact us.
If you are wondering if a specific Land Cruiser was restored by The FJ Company, we have records of every vehicle we’ve restored and we’d be happy to check on a particular VIN number for you. Simply send us an email with the VIN number and a link to where it is being advertised.
We source Land Cruisers from all over the world as long as they were produced in the Toyota factory in Japan. Many of them are coming from Latin America, where the high altitude of the Andes mountains keeps these vehicles mostly free from rust. The more exotic models have come from places as remote as Montana in the USA, Saudi Arabia and even directly from Japan. Irrespective of where they come from, they all go through the same restoration process and are upgraded with power steering, front disk brakes, roll bar, and a more modern suspension, unless something different is specifically requested by our client.
Do you have a Land Cruiser you want to sell? You can send us more information about it here.
We do not. We only sell fully restored Toyota Land Cruisers.
Yes! We can build right-hand-side FJs at request.
Yes! We can find just about anything. It may take some time, but we'll find it.
It doesn’t matter. At least not at The FJ Company. We build Land Cruisers from scratch, starting with an authentic steel body and chassis originally produced by Toyota at their factory in Japan. Working with this blank canvas, we build each of our trucks to the specifications of our client. Whether your donor vehicle is U.S.-spec or not, most features can be added or removed to create the classic Land Cruiser of your dreams. Want to know more? Check out this blog post for more information.
We do not sell parts. However, we do source parts for customers that have purchased their vehicles from us.
We divide payment into three installments. We request a first payment (40%) at the time of contracting, a second payment (30%) before we begin body paint work and a third payment (30%) at the time of inspection, prior to shipping the vehicle to its new owner. We also offer a money-back guarantee.
Your vehicle will be available for inspection at one of our locations: Miami, Aspen, or Dallas, Texas.
Yes, we've shipped cars all over the world.
We have a core competence restoring FJ40, FJ43 and FJ45 Land Cruisers. We do occasionally restore more recent models such as the FJ25, FJ60 and FJ70.
