Icon’s Corvette-Powered 4×4 Baja Land Cruiser Was Born To Off-Road

The Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser is an indelible example of a famed off-road platform that couldn’t be more popular in today’s market. A large portion of its success can be attributed not only to the vehicle’s unique stylings — but to its capabilities — thanks to an illustrious career as one of the most dominant Baja racers of its era. Now, Icon 4×4 has reintroduced one of the company’s first FJ40 variants; and better yet, it’s up for sale.

In 2007, Icon decided to celebrate both the 50th anniversary of Toyota in America, and 40 years of the legendary SCORE Baja 1000, with a run of six limited-edition builds. As the first of its kind, this Baja Edition FJ40 set the standard for the customizer’s renowned project, offering buyers a unique take on the legendary 4×4. They started off the build with the implementation of a 450-horsepower alloy LS6 engine, which would push power to the FJ’s wheels through a modified 4L65E automatic transmission. To give it the gumption it would need for traversal, the Baja was outfitted with a slew of external upgrades, including a racing jack, power tank, ARB air compressor, Warn XP cradle mount winch, and an IPF HID lighting system for increased illumination. A triangulated four-link coil suspension was also introduced, allowing the FJ40 to negotiate a variety of inclement obstacles. To learn more about the limited-edition vehicle, head to Icon’s website, where it’s been listed for sale at $168,000.
