1981 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 Troopy

Feb 8, 2017

Category: Rides

The history of the FJ45 is one that’s as vast and diverse as human history itself, which tends to happen when a worldwide release of an off-road capable vehicle captures the attention of those looking for an all-around reliable truck. The good people over at The FJ Company understand this infatuation and work day in and day out to restore old Land Cruiser FJ’s for our continued enjoyment.

This particular offering, once serving the Columbian National Guard, had at one point been to war, taken children to school, and later shuttled workers to the mines. There’s a lot of history here and, thanks to The FJ Company, this ride will continue to make new memories with whoever is fortunate enough to purchase the beauty. It’s a rare model, known as the “Troopy” that features a refined cabin with ample seating for up to 13 people under the canvas top. FJ Company also gave the Land Cruiser a 3F engine upgrade, installed a premium audio system, a frame restoration, custom vinyl upholstery, and equipped the truck with an Old Man Emu suspension. It’s the perfect off-road vehicle for some off-the-grid fun. The want is strong with this one.
