Legendary Land Cruiser Style Meets Contemporary Cool in the FJ Company Sport

Many of us dream of owning and driving a classic car, but reality dictates that older automobiles mean lots of hassle. To operate a reliable classic, you must either prepare for a long, expensive restoration process, or you can go to the experts.

Off-road enthusiasts have plenty of modern choices: the Ford F-150 Raptor, Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, and Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro – just to name a few – are each incredibly capable and comfortable. But none of these vehicles will earn the attention or respect of an iconic off-roader like the Toyota FJ40.

The FJ Company has been restoring 20, 40, and 60 Series FJ Land Cruisers for years, and while their projects have been impressive until now, the latest work is something is on a new level.

With the goal of building a 40-series Land Cruiser to meet the demands of modern driving, FJ Company developed the ‘Sport.’ Embracing the timeless design of the original FJ, the Sport is simple and rugged, yet highly accommodating.

FJ Company started with an original chassis and steel body (model years 1976-83) before layering on modern off-road hardware and cabin comforts. As a result, the FJ Company Sport can be driven around town (prepare for jealous stares) or pushed hard on just about any terrain.

Highlights include a modern Toyota 1FZ inline six-cylinder engine with 210 horsepower, a five-speed manual or automatic transmission, a responsive steering system, upgraded suspension, air conditioning and available seat heating, and a number of optional convenience goodies.

Buyers can customize their Land Cruiser with short (FJ40) or extended (FJ43) body styles, hard or soft-top covers, bumpers, tires, and other accessories.

This is truly one of the most comprehensive restoration projects on the market, and perhaps the best vision of a classic Land Cruiser for today’s roads. Prices start at a hefty $90,000, but when has quality ever come cheap?
