We are very pleased to offer this 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40
The first BJ Series Toyotas were created in 1951 at the behest of the U.S. Army, which asked Toyota to build an all-terrain-capable light utility vehicle similar to the newest version of the WWII Jeep. The Land Cruiser name first appeared in 1954, and with its well-earned reputation for toughness, quality, and longevity, the “L-C” would soon become the vehicle of choice for difficult terrain all over the world. It was that same tough use and extreme environment to which Land Cruisers were subjected that also created a noteworthy lack of undamaged original examples.
The FJ40’s reputation and proof of its durability have encouraged first-class restorations that have recently seen record braking results at auctions around the world.
