1979 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 Olive

This 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 is being restored and customized for a client in Houston, Texas, who will use it as a frequent driver on road and occasional off road.

After it undergoes our full, frame-off restoration process, it will be powered by a Toyota 1FZ engine with a 5-speed transmission, along with front-disc brakes, power-steering, and an upgraded suspension by Old Man Emu. Inside, you’ll find US style bucket seats in the front and rear jump seats in the rear, all wrapped in custom brown vinyl upholstery. For even more comfort and entertainment, we are doing a Vintage Air A/C and installing a vintage-looking digital radio.

It will be finished with a beautiful coat of olive paint, while retaining the timeless classic features of the Toyota Land Cruiser. Extras like the LED headlights and retro steering wheel will make this build extra special when it hits the ground in Houston.
