When most people think of classic SUVs, images of military vehicles and those from the ’60s tend to come to the front of the mind. But we think that’s a shame, because there’s plenty to be had from later on, like the ’80s, that – while a bit strange – can be every bit as enticing when restored right. Take, for instance, this 1986 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 by the FJ Company.
Completely rebuilt to near-original specs, this vintage FJ went through a complete frame-off restoration. The work included fixing up the original 3F engine and 4-speed transmission, getting the original A/C unit in working condition, adding an Old Man Emu suspension, swapping out the old headlights for LEDs, putting in a premium sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, and much more. And the finishing touch was adding an olive green paint job with the “four wheel drive” side stripe decals to bring out the radical in this ’80s beast. Unfortunately, this one is spoken for, but you can always reach out to FJ Company to get a custom retro SUV of your own.
