1990 Toyota FJ62 Is a No-Expense Spared Stunner

This incredible FJ62 was built with a lot of thought, tons of passion, and plenty of cash.

Vintage FJs are essentially a dime a dozen these days. Not because there’s necessarily a lot of them around, but because values have climbed so high those looking to make a dime have unearthed just about every one left in existence. Newer FJs, however, haven’t yet completely captured the fascination of the car chasing set. So when you see a gorgeous Toyota FJ62 like this one, you have to take notice.

Granted, this is no stock 1990 Toyota FJ62. Not by a long shot. The seller has obviously spent a lot of time (and cash) turning it into a restomod worthy of car shows as well as the toughest of off-road trails. And while the asking price of just under fifty grand might seem steep at first, this FJ62 is chock full of parts from TLC 4×4. One of the most renowned rebuilders of the legendary FJ.

The paint on this classic ride is the original color, yet freshly resprayed and covered in Llumar paint protection film. TLC provided the front bumper, ARB the rear. Other exterior goodies include an ARB roof rack, ProComp Xtreme Mud Terrain 2 tires, and a Warm 8,500 lb winch. The original Toyota drivetrain was ditched in favor of a 6.0-liter LS mill and 4L65E transmission.

Underneath, you’ll find ARB lockers, an Old Man EMU 2.5″ lift, and loads of new/rebuilt parts including the axles and brakes. The interior is mostly stock but refreshed, with marine vinyl upholstery and a high-end stereo system.

It’s clear that a lot of thought went into this no-expense spared FJ62 build. But the end result is obviously awesome. If we had the cash, we’d scoop this vintage Toyota up with no hesitation. Because we’d wager that before long, these things might be easier to find, but they won’t be cheap!
