1978 Toyota Land Cruiser
This gorgeous1978 Toyota Landcruiser has just completed a professional frame off restoration. Built for the discerning buyer who wants the look of a classic Landcruiser, but with a modern drive and feel. Power steering and brakes mixed with a brand new powerful Toyota Tacoma engine and transmission for quiet and powerful acceleration with Toyota reliability.
The body and axles wereremoved and the chassis was completely sandblasted,primed, sealedand black painted with 2k poly paint. The axles were rebuilt and refinished as new.Complete new suspension, and all new brake system and fittings. The front end was completely rebuilt with new seals, gaskets, and bearings. New battery tray and hold down; new battery. New body mounts, weather stripping, and seals. Replacement of all gear and general oils all around. New doors and associated parts were installed.
The original engine has been replaced with a brand new Tacoma engine and transmission and transfer case and comes with Toyota 1 year warranty. As of the date of this ad, there are 9 test miles. The Tacoma engine gives the Landcruiser lots of power with fast pickup and lots of torque. This reliable engine is a far better replacement than the standard rebuilt motor, and far more holding value than a chevy transplant. Keep itToyota!

Sitting in the FJ40 is like stepping into the past. Its a little taller than most cars, but not so high that a lady has trouble climbing in with a dress. The feel of the open top gives one the sense of freedom mixed with old-school style points. Driving this truck is nearly effortless. With a fast quiet engine and exhaust, it doesn't have the annoying hot rod sound of many restomods. Its a subtle expression of years gone by, with the modern comfort and reliability we are used to today.
