1975 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40

MAKE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT!

We've all seen beautifully restored classic automobiles. The body comes off, the enginecomes out, the interior is redone and every part of the vehicle is evaluated, refurbished orreplaced before reassembly. These efforts come with descriptions like "no expense spared"and "better than new". The end results can be visually stunning and financially staggering!

Then there's that "other" genre of classic automobiles. They have the mystique and magicof objects that time has somehow forgotten. You won't hear about the extensive restoration,it hasn't occurred. Like an enigma that has somehow turned back the hands of time,lovingly cared for or, in some cases, sparingly reserved for special occasions.

"Survivors"appear to be experiencing a new found appreciationamong auto enthusiasts. Survivors may not be perfect, yetthat is, in many cases, what makes them perfect. They havetranscended the boundary of time and escaped an onslaughtof use and abuse. Where the others have failed, they havesomehow prevailed. Their owners may have taken them outof the game early or perhaps just had the wisdom to maintain, appreciate and protect whatthe manufacturer designed and built so many years ago. This is a rare occurrence,especially when it comes to rugged utilitarian vehicles that were meant for work!

TLC STAGE ONE RESTORATION

TLC Inspected and Certified Land Cruisers undergo a two day inspection encompassing over 300points so that we become aware of all systems conditions. This inspection follows a 30+ page documentdesigned specifically for Land Cruisers. We find that due to the reputation of the Land Cruiser, even the most diligentowners only repair items when they break. After a decade (s) of reliable service, we think it is time to take a farmore comprehensive approach. Systems inspected range from wiper blades to engine, tranny and transfer case,brake system, cooling system, electrical system and much more. Once a TLC technician completes theinspection process, the service manager reviews the report, then itemizes and prioritizes the discoveries madeduring the inspection. Stage One is the thorough repair based on needs, realized by this inspection. Stage Oneseeks to give your Cruiser a clean bill of health, to get you on the road again with renewed faith in the reliability ofyour rig. After a final quality control check and road test by our foreman, we write a complete repair orderindicating what jobs were performed and warranty information. Trust that a more comprehensive repair processdoes not exist in the business. In fact, the stage one process is far more thorough than any inspection regimentoffered by Toyota.
