What is a Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45?
The Toyota J4 Series Land Cruisers were a traditional body on frame utility vehicle manufactured from 1960 to 1984. Available throughout the years in several different configurations, wheelbases and engines. They were available in short (J40), medium (J43) and long (J45) wheelbase versions, with gasoline and diesel engines. The J45 was a long-wheelbase version available in two-door hardtop, three-door hardtop, four-door station wagon and two-door pickup models.
This F45 began its life in Colombia where it underwent a comprehensive restoration, was acquired by its current owner and imported into the United States in 2023.
