Though there are modern Land Cruiser models on and off the roads today, we’re much more partial to the earlier models — the ones that were based on the Willys Jeep, but improved through clever Japanese engineering. Today, a fairly large number of them still exist, though finding one in road-worthy condition is a different story. Thankfully, we can always depend on the FJ Company — as evidenced by their latest release, this 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser G43.
Impeccably restored, this absolutely gorgeous 4×4 looks practically brand-new with its stunning matte olive paint job, tan soft top, and black accents. And the retro styling extends to the interior, with 1960s-inspired leather upholstery and a clean, minimalist aesthetic. Of course, it’s not all old school — there’s also a modern dash and high-tech infotainment center to bring the ride into the modern era. And the whole thing is powered by a Toyota 1GR-FE 4.0L V6 engine that’s so clean you could eat off of it. A brilliant blend of past and present, this retro-styled off-roader is a sight to behold and promises a ride to match.
