When it comes to Japanese SUVs, nothing is as classic or Iconic as the Toyota Land Cruiser. Originally based on the classic Willys Jeep, they were once military-only vehicles, before garnering legendary status as extremely capable off-roaders. Nowadays, it’s hard to track down an early model in passable condition — but not impossible. In fact, the folks at Hyman LTD. have just put this pristine 1981 FJ40 up for sale.

A hardtop example, this particular offering is remarkably original. It even still has the same 4.2-liter 2F inline-six cylinder engine it was given at birth — capable of 135 horsepower and 217 foot-pounds of torque. It has, however, benefitted from a complete restoration, though the folks who sorted it were careful not to overdo it. They even managed to salvage the original steering wheel, gear lever gaiters, and push-button “ToCars” AM radio. And, to complete the classic look, they’ve equipped it with beefy, period-correct Firestone Super Traction ND off-road tires. This baby can be yours for $67,500.

Purchase: $67,500
