We sell custom built Toyota FJ40, FJ43, FJ45, FJ60, and FJ70 Land Cruisers. All of our Land Cruisers are remanufactured to like-new condition, and most include modifications to improve driveability and reliability on US highways. For example, power steering, front disk brakes, roll bar, and a more modern suspension. Most of our clients use their vehicles actively as weekend drivers.
While our vehicles are delivered looking new and smelling new, they are still considered and registered as classic cars. The year of registration, i.e., 1983, will depend on the specific chassis that we used for your project. In essence, we take an authentic classic Toyota chassis and body and restore those components to factory specifications. Everything else, including internal engine components, interiors, electrical systems, windows, tires, brakes, etc., are assembled using new OEM components or remanufactured parts.
The FJ Company models like the Sport or Signature have a new modern engine and drivetrain, but they do not have modern safety features such as air bag systems. These vehicles will behave as intended back in the 70’s and 80’s, but they will have improved performance in steering, braking, acceleration, overall drivability and comfort.
Yes! We offer a 1 year Service Agreement that has comprehensive coverage on issues that may arise with your vehicle. Once you submit an order online, your sales rep can share details of that program. Apart from that, upon taking delivery of your vehicle, you will be assigned a company technician to advise on maintenance and to source any parts you may need in the future.
Yes! Classic Motors, LLC d/b/a The FJ Company, is a licensed and insured Florida automotive dealer, with satellite locations in Dallas, Texas, and Aspen, Colorado. When purchasing a Land Cruiser from us, you will have peace of mind knowing that your vehicle will be titled to a US-based company that has met stringent requirements to sell vehicles. The title, bill of Sale, and all documentation will be properly completed and ready for you to re-register the vehicle in your State or country of residence. This helps to protect you and the valuable investment you have made.

Yes, significantly more. And it’s because our vehicles are remanufactured to like-new condition. In essence, we take an authentic classic Toyota chassis and body and restore those components to original factory specifications. Everything else, including internal engine components, interiors, electrical systems, windows, tires, and brakes, are assembled using new OEM components or remanufactured parts.
In addition to that, our vehicles are all built with several improvements for comfort and drivability. For example, they all have, at a minimum, a new Toyota 5-speed transmission*, an improved power steering system*, more modern suspension, front disc brakes, roll bar, digital stereo, and a Vintage Air A/C and Heater. Some of our pricier models may look similar to how they looked back in the 70's and 80's, but they actually have modern mechanical equipment.
Apart from that, our pricing includes shipping and a 1 year Service Agreement within the Continental US. Try that on eBay :)
* Starting for all orders as of Oct 2017.
Most customers that send us their Land Cruiser to use as the basis for a project do so because they have a very unique model or a strong emotional attachment to it. Generally speaking, the production and shipping costs will be largely the same as ordering one from our website. Get in touch with us for a more detailed estimate on your restoration!
Yes we can, but note the comment on pricing above. If you do want to use your vehicle as the donor for the project, we will coordinate to have it picked up and shipped to our facility in Miami, Florida. From there, we'll take care of the rest. Your vehicle will go through our state of the art facility in Bogota, Colombia and it returns twelve months later in "like new" condition. During the process, you will receive monthly photo updates in high-resolution. Pricing and further details are available here.
We follow the same process for every custom Land Cruiser that we sell, irrespective of the original vehicle's condition (learn more about the process by watching this video). In industry lingo, these are typically called "frame-off" restorations, but we take it one step further and replace most components with new parts, essentially remanufacturing the vehicle.
We don't do partial restorations, paint jobs, engine rebuilds, etc.
The process takes approximately 12 to 18 months from order to delivery. Once you submit an order through our website, your sales rep will advise on the exact availability of production slots. More exotic models will require additional work and will likely take longer.
Even though we've established a robust production process, keep in mind we build custom vehicles using largely manual processes. Estimating exact times for delivery is not possible.
Be warned! Some sellers on eBay, Craigslist, and other used car dealers are selling classic Land Cruisers and saying they were built by The FJ Company. While some of our builds have been re-sold on other websites, the only way to guarantee that you’re buying an authentic vehicle by The FJ Company, is to purchase a build through this website, or to contact us.
If you are wondering if a specific Land Cruiser was built by The FJ Company, we have records of every vehicle we’ve worked on and we’d be happy to check on a particular VIN number for you. Simply send us an email with the VIN number and a link to where it is being advertised.
We source Land Cruisers from all over the world as long as they were produced in the Toyota factory in Japan. Many of them are coming from Latin America, where the high altitude of the Andes mountains keeps these vehicles mostly free from rust. The more exotic models have come from places as remote as Montana in the USA, Saudi Arabia and even directly from Japan. Irrespective of where they come from, they all go through the same restoration process and are upgraded with power steering, front disk brakes, roll bar, and a more modern suspension, unless something different is specifically requested by our client.
Do you have a Land Cruiser you want to sell? You can send us more information about it here.
We do not sell non-restored vehicles. Occassionally we do have customers who want to sell their vehicle previously built by The FJ Company. Please contact us if you're interested in seeing what may be available at any given time.
Yes! We can build right-hand-side FJs at request. Pricing can be $10,000 to $20,000 higher from what is advertised on the website for our standard production builds.
Yes! We can find just about anything. It may take some time, but we'll find it.
It doesn’t matter. At least not at The FJ Company. We build Land Cruisers from scratch, starting with an authentic steel body and chassis originally produced by Toyota at their factory in Japan. Working with this blank canvas, we build each truck to certain specifications that we have developed over a number of years, based on experience and feedback from existing customers in the US. Whether your donor vehicle is U.S.-spec or not, most accesories and features can be added or removed to create the classic Land Cruiser of your dreams. Want to know more? Check out this blog post for more information.
We do not sell parts. However, we do source parts for customers that have purchased their vehicles from us.
We divide payment into three installments. We request a first payment (40%) at the time of contracting, a second payment (30%) before we begin body paint work and a third payment (30%) at the time of inspection, prior to shipping the vehicle to its new owner. We also offer a money-back guarantee.
Your vehicle will be available for inspection at one of our locations: Miami, Aspen, or Dallas, Texas.
Yes, we've shipped cars all over the world.
We have a core competence building FJ40, FJ43 and FJ45 Land Cruisers. We do occasionally restore 20 series, 60 series, and 70 series Land Cruisers.
