When it comes to the outfit of history’s most prominent Toyota vehicles, FJ Company has set a standard that’s ill-met by other, less-refined restoration companies. The 1981 Signature G45-S “Troopy” you see here is one such example, calling upon an immaculate visual identity, bespoke modifications, and an overland persona that could inspire any would-be adventurer to get outside for the weekend.
In the hands of FJ’s talented craftsmen, virtually every aspect of this 1981 Signature G45-S has been replicated to mirror that of the original, calling upon period-correct elements like the vehicle’s front grille, bolts, hooks, OEM emblems, and Olive Green colorway. But what makes this Troopy so special is its originality. Taking on FJ’s established four-door conversion, the vehicle sets itself apart from a variety of the industry’s alternative offerings, working alongside bespoke touches like a gas cap delete, dual jerry-can setup, and Warn 8274 winch to give it an aura of off-road supremacy. On the vehicle’s exterior, a set of EvoCorse aluminum wheels, CNC-machined aluminum peripherals, and Mud-Terrain All-Terrain tires enhance its aesthetic presence, while a supercharged, 228-horsepower Toyota 1GR-FE engine allows it to take on any trail. Sadly, this unique variant is already sold, but you can head over to FJ Company’s website to check out their other builds.
