Auction Block: 1983 Toyota FJ-45 Land Cruiser

The rehabilitation of timeless Toyota platforms isn’t new; after all, the company’s legendary Land Cruiser is one of, if not the most, popular restorative vehicles of the past two decades. As such, the marketplace is inundated with them, leaving little room to stand apart as a unique, one-of-a-kind offering. Luckily, we spotted this impeccable 1983 Toyota JF-45 — a handsome reinterpretation that’s sure to cause a commotion within the automotive space.

The established variant that you see here is a green and black rendition of one of the most lauded pickups of all time. It’s the recipient of a fully-realized, frame-off restoration, and calls upon a freshly-built 130 CI 6-cylinder engine to do its bidding. To accent its period-correct peripherals, a four-speed transmission and knobby all-terrain tires have been implemented, allowing the vehicle to take on everything from the well-manicured streets of the city, all the way to the dusty, downtrodden trails of your favorite off-road area. But the truck isn’t rooted entirely in the past; you’ll find that the implementation of modern power steering gives the FJ-45 a feel all its own, and reinforces the driver’s connection to the roadway, above all else. If you’re looking to secure your own piece of historic Cruiser culture, head over to Mecum’s website, where the 1983 FJ-45 will be available at auction in the coming month.
