1978 Land Cruiser Fj40

Our friends from FJ Company, specialize in performing full, frame-off restorations of the classic Japanese Toyota FJ series. Their latest masterpiece is this beautiful 1978 Land Cruiser FJ40, a build they consider to be their best work to date. The guys performed their trademark frame off nut and bolt restoration, replaced the door panels, windows, dash pads, and headliner, and re-upholstered the seats. They also rebuilt the 4.2-liter six-cylinder engine, four-speed transmission, and four-wheel-drive system. This pristine FJ40 is going to auction this month, you can check the listing at RM Sotheby’s.
