Auction Block: 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45

Although they don’t boast the same kinds of tech or modern conveniences as contemporary vehicles, there’s just something viscerally pleasing about an old-school truck, like this fully-restored 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45. From its floating front bumper to the hideaway spare tire beneath the pickup bed, this is an all-over classic. And, since it’s up for auction, it can be yours.

Although it is a 1971 year-model, this Land Cruiser long bed pickup truck has recently benefitted from a complete frame-off restoration. The work done includes a full rebuild of the 3.8-liter inline-six engine; a bare-metal repaint in Fashion Green; upholstery, body panel, and bed refurbishment/replacement; and more. Despite all that work, this gorgeous truck only ever had one owner (who kept her hidden away in a Costa Rican barn) and has driven just 333 miles since the restoration. As it stands, the current bid is at $40k, but there’s still a couple days to get in on the auction of this pristine classic long bed pickup.

Purchase: $40,000+
