Sky Blue: ’78 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

IMG_6879The Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the few 4-wheel drive trucks coveted by collectors. Patterned after the Jeep and Land Rover 4-wheelers, the Land Cruiser proved that Toyota could produce a tough multi-purpose platform and not just econoboxes. In production for a quarter century, the FJ became the “go to” vehicle in remote areas of the world. In standard form, they are capable of climbing mountains, crossing deserts, and, well, doing just about the impossible. Read More


Land or Beach Cruiser: ’70 Toyota land Cruiser FJ40

70 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

Toyota’s version of a Jeep-like vehicle started production in 1954. The Land Cruiser’s reliability and longevity has led to huge popularity, especially in OZ (Australia) where it is the best-selling body-on-frame, four-wheel drive vehicle and considered to be one of the toughest 4X4s operating in environments with extreme temperature and rough terrain.

Grey Poupon: ’76 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ-40

76 Land Cruiser FJ 40

If you are tired of us saying how much we love a particular car, stop reading (although you’ll miss something cool). We are avid Toyota Land Cruiser fans and we are on our third version – the FJ80. One of our all time favorites is the Jeep-like FJ-40. They are rough and tumble bulldogs. In the darkest corners of the world and some say the most beautiful, the Land Cruiser has usurped the Land Rover as the vehicle of choice. In Oz for example, there is a huge following for the Cruiser with some of the stoutest aftermarket parts emanating from there. Hagerty has recognized the surge in vintage SUVs too. Read More


Warm Spot: ’87 Toyota FJ60 Land Cruiser

Land Cruiser FJ60

We absolutely respect a good FJ-60 for many reasons. It is so much more practical than an FJ-40 (don’t write us please) and more reliable than a Land Rover (same warning applies). The styling is early Japanese funk although that isn’t what they were going for back then. Land Cruiser FJ60Land Cruiser FJ60But you have to know how hard it is to keep one in this condition and be lucky enough to find someone who’ll part with it. We had an ’87 for years and he came from Tarzana, California. After our first few days of off-road exploration, we named him Tarzan – King of the Litchfield Hills. Ours was red and this one is in Middle Eastern, rifle toting white. You’ve seen endless news reports with like 20 amped-up militants hanging out of the windows shaking their rifles at some unknown assailant like Coyotes howling at the moon. At least they are smart about their choice of vehicle. You can tell a family-owned Cruiser from a bushwacker by the front seats. If the seats are toast, it has had a hard life. It doesn’t rule one out but it makes you cautious. This one has original cloth seats in fine condition. Truly a rarity. The mileage is ridiculously low too. These will go 300,000 miles easy if cared for. More even. The seller says no rust and it looks like it. Any surface rust can be stopped in a day with a steam cleaning and a bucket of POR 15. If we didn’t have the next generation Cruiser, we wouldn’t be posting this. We would be on the phone making a deal. On eBay with a $10,000 starting bid.

Minty Green: ’71 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser

Toyota FJ40

We pledge our undying admiration of the Japanese interpretation of our venerable JEEP.  The FJ40 is an indestructible bulldog of a truck. Indestructible if they are cared for properly. Like any car, if you can find one that hasn’t been apart and is in great original condition, give it some serious thought. 71 FJ40 engpOne can debate whether you buy a car with a solid body and weak mechanicals or the other way around. We like to get it both ways and that is what we believe we have here –  a solid, unmolested, 51,000 mile FJ and in a nice minty green. Now those 51,000 miles could have been spent crossing the Rubicon or plowing a gas station, but we think that is not the case here. It probably has the 3.8 liter F engine with 105 horse but it could be the 125 horse version too. So check it out. Just look at the photos on our site and journey over to the listing for more. It is the real deal. See it here on eBay.
