One-of-a-Kind FJ Cruiser is a Real-Life Hot Wheel
Decade-old FJ Cruiser is a steal at $12,000, but only if you truly love this unusual application of red, white and blue.
We’ve all grown up playing with Hot Wheels. While some were fairly tame and looked like super-small versions of the Toyotas we saw on the street, other Hot Wheels were truly out there, the kind of cars we wish were real.
Someone out there has combined the wild side of Mattel’s greatest hit with a 2007 FJ Cruiser, then put the results up for sale on Hiveel. As you’ll soon see, this is one FJ Cruiser you’ll either love with all of your heart, or want to kill with fire.
Somewhere along the way from the dealership to its current owner, this three-owner California FJ Cruiser in Voodoo Blue received more than a few TRD upgrades. The normally silver headlight and grill assembly was covered in red, as were the silver bits on the front and rear bumpers, the side view mirrors, and door handles. The Goodyear radials also gained a touch of red, in the form of the full set of red wheels on each corner, plus a matching spare on the back.
The inside of the FJ Cruiser is not spared this unique treatment, though what is there is seems like the customizer didn’t go far enough. The black and silver dash is trimmed in red, as is the steering wheel. The only hint to the madness outside is the Voodoo Blue center console HVAC and stereo head unit, while everything else is black plastic and leather.
For $12,000, this living Hot Wheel can be the star of your next car show, and/or drive down the property value of your neighborhood. The FJ Cruiser has 180,000 miles on the odometer, and has a clean title. Your eyes, on the other hand, may need some cleaning after seeing what this FJ Cruiser has been through.
