1978 Toyota Land Cruiser
Up for sale is our 1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser. FJ’s are our specialty and no part of this car was overlooked in this complete restoration. From start to finish, ost of the process was completed in house by our expert technicians. The upholstery and powder coating were the only aspects of this project that we hired out to other professionals.
This car is mostly all original, here are some new parts and components but our preference was to restore over replace whenever possible. This car was finished less than a month ago with minimal drive time since then.
