The FJ Company Did A Beautiful Job On This Classic Toyota Land Cruiser [60 Pics]

Saddened by the discontinuation of the Toyota FJ Cruiser? You’re not alone: it was an epically cool truck inspired by a veritable icon. But we have good news for you, because you can still get your hands on an original FJ-series Land Cruiser and have it restored to immaculate condition by The FJ Company.

The Miami-based outfit specializes in restoring old Land Cruisers, like this beautiful 1967 model – an FJ45LV in Capri Blue and white. It was the pet project of gentleman in Montana, who painstakingly sourced original parts for this most rare of Land Cruisers over the course of ten years.

With his health sadly deteriorating, the vehicle passed on to a collector who commissioned The FJ Company to complete its restoration. The company found it extensively rusted but in highly original condition, right down to the engine and transmission, and supplemented by its former owner’s carefully catalogued stockpile of parts.

The finished product has been sold to a customer in Dubai. But before being shipped off to the Persian Gulf, it will be showcased at the Carmel-by-the-Sea Concours on the Avenue as part of Monterey Car Week, and at SEMA in November.

Like what you see? The FJ Company offers a broad array of restoration and modification for classic Land Cruisers, ranging from the Classic starting at $55,000 all the way up to a fully custom job like this one.

    why is the temperature gauge indicate H?!!

    • Great eye! Don’t worry, it’s not overheating. This is where the gauge defaults when the truck is off. It’s such a rare truck that we are still trying to research if that’s normal behavior or not. If you have any info, please do let us know!

    I’m told there are more of these popping up in Hollywood now there have been in 40 years. Even though there’s something kinda wrong with an immaculate and expensive FJ, this longbody is sooo desirable.

    • How can something so wrong, feel so right?

        Don’t get me wrong, you guys did amazing work on this truck. I grew up in the back of these (and old CJ-5s) and we beat ’em up. Too bad a lot of their new owners won’t even get ’em dirty.

    Dubai?? What a shame. In a month, the vehicle will be abandoned and left to rot, replaced by another shiny new toy.

    Very nicely done. Shame the original owner who sourced all the NOS parts had to let the project go due to bad health. The right company got to do the work though. Great color as well.
