Rugged, iconic, and trusted the world over, the Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser epitomizes the dependability for which the company has become known. Introduced in 1960 and originally patterned after Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser quickly proved itself in some of the world’s most challenging environments.

This FJ40 received a meticulous frame-off rotisserie restoration in 2018, starting with a well-preserved, lifelong Arizona specimen. The body and exterior components were then media-blasted to bare metal and repaired as necessary, and hardware was yellow zinc electroplated. The engine was rebuilt, and mechanical and electrical items were refurbished. A six-page restoration summary, and over 70 photos, accompany the truck at auction.

While NOS parts were used wherever possible to maintain the FJ40’s originality, the truck also features a restored dealer-option Warn M8274 8,000-pound winch.

Revered for its utilitarian simplicity and its durability, the FJ40 Land Cruiser maintains a devout following of owners, collectors, and off-road enthusiasts. This handsome and carefully restored example will surely turn heads and kick up dust wherever the road takes it.
