Description

The Toyota Land Cruiser, in its many sizes and configurations has had a long and successful history of reliable service through the most rugged of conditions. Patterned after the ubiquitous Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser demonstrated that Toyota could produce much more than just economical cars. Introduced in 1960, the FJ40 and its variants remained in production for a quarter century, the kind of longevity that demonstrates true value, quality and utility. They became indispensable in unsettled and remote areas of the world, hauled safaris through Africa, developed a devoted following among America’s off-road culture and have spawned a host of imitators.

The Land Cruiser’s popularity and utility is reflected in the number of variants in which it was built. There were in fact so many that it is probably impossible to identify all of them, but they came in a short, medium, long, and extra-long wheelbase, with a variety of roofs, half cabs, soft tops and doors, with four- and six-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines. They climb mountains, cross deserts and rivers, balance their way over rock falls – they are one of the archetypical utility vehicles and today finding a good vintage example can be difficult.

The desirable and iconic Land Cruiser offered here  was imported by the vendor from Lebanon in 2015 and  received a  very comprehensive restoration. This iconic vehicle must been seen to be truly appreciated. This FJ is presented in striking Freeborn Red over a neatly contrasting black interior, and is excellent in every respect.

With room for plenty of friends to hit the road, this is a top example of the vintage Toyota Land Cruiser, restored with no expense spared.
