1982 Toyota Land CruiserStunning Land Cruiser FJ45 - Complete Professional Restoration
When this 1982 Toyota FJ45 Land Cruiser hit our showroom floor at Art and Speed, we were blown away by its full restoration from Toyoda Restaraciones in Venezuela. Completed in 2018, this FJ had a complete frame-off performed with every nut and bolt new. And the devil is in the details!
The vibrant Solar Red paint is an original FJ color. Buffed to a perfect shine, this one is nicer than it would have been from the factory. To make the red pop even more, the white roof provides a high contrast along with white "TOYOTA" lettering on the grille and tailgate. The custom rollbar adds protection and style without taking away from the classic FJ45 appearance. Custom, black steel bumpers match the rollbar and make it look extra brutish. We wouldn't think of taking it off-road, but you can! And if you do, there is a Dobinsons synthetic rope, remote-controlled electric winch leading the way out front.
Speaking of Dobinsons, you will find the Australian company was also used for the suspension, with upgraded leaf springs and improved gas shocks to give it extra height and strength. Knowing it has front-disc brakes, steep grades won't worry you on overcooking the shoes. Should you choose to off-road this pristine Land Cruiser, you won't have to worry about getting stuck!
During the full-resto, an upgraded electronic ignition was added to fire-off the numbers-matching, 4.2-liter, inline-six engine, which was rebuilt and reinstalled. It breathes through an ARB snorkel if you decide to take it submarining. The four-speed manual shifter isn't what we'd describe as a performance shifter with a pretty lengthy throw between gears, but the gearbox pulls well. Putting the connection to the road is a set of oversized Kapsen 285/75/R16 tires fitted on Red Arrow wheels all around, giving it a more aggressive stance than when stock. You aren't going to win any land-speed races with this truck, but hey, it's a 4x4, it's not supposed to win stoplight races!
The upgrades continue on in the interior, where you will find more better-than-factory upgrades like a cold, modern R134 air-conditioning system and a Pioneer stereo system. Sitting in style, your comfort is upgraded with custom leather bucket seats and door cards. The dash is in stock form, but everything has been refurbished here, including the OE manufacturer stickers, and everything is in working order.
From top to bottom, headlight to taillight, the folks at Toyoda did a fantastic job restoring this beauty. Evidently, it has been babied since getting a new lease on life; it looks like it just pulled out of the shop. If you've been thinking about an old Land Cruiser, this is THE one. It's ready to get in and drive right now, so come check it out. You won't be disappointed!
