1982 Toyota FJ40 Open Top is Flawless
This 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 might be nicer today than it was when it rolled off of the assembly line.
While perusing the vehicle list of the upcoming Leake auction in Oklahoma City later this month, we came across this flawless 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40. This auction listing states that it received a “comprehensive restoration to factory specs”, but based on the pictures, this classic SUV might be nicer than it was when it was 36 years ago. Simply put, this FJ40 is perfect.
The Unmistakable Exterior
This 1982 Toyota FJ40 has been restored by a company called Marque Specialists, and they appear to have done an incredible job. Every aspect of the exterior looks like it could be new, from the polished bumpers with black rubber pads to the green canvas top to the dark green-painted body, it is hard to find any sort of fault with this classic SUV.
The green was a great choice for this restoration, as it gives the FJ a very military look, especially with the black wheels and off-road tires.
A Plush Interior
On the inside, this 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 has leather bucket seats and a Vintage air conditioning system, but the rest of the cabin looks stock and spotless.
The gauges and all of the in-dash controls appear to be era-correct, right down to the glove box-mounted “gear shift instructions”.
