This FJ40 is a real head turner wherever I take it! It will fly down the freeway at 90 MPH with ease or idle down the trail at 132 to 1 crawl speed. This project began with a cherry 1972 CALIFORNIA FRAME & 1978 body. Once all of the parts were on hand, the assembly started to take shape piece by piece.The bumpers, seat brackets and roll cage have all been POWDER COATED. The inside of the tub and all of the wheel wells have been LINE-X'd. All the hardware and brackets are either stainless steel, freshly CHROMED or electroplated!

There are no shortcuts anywhere. This Land Cruiser is one you will be proud to own!
