It’s no secret that overland vehicles have to be built for intensive use on some of the planet’s most rugged terrain, and while a number of custom off-the-grid offerings are filled to the brim with expansive, cutting-edge additions, there are a handful of simple, romp-ready trucks that still meet the status-quo for utilitarian use but won’t break the bank.
This 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ60 is one such vehicle, featuring a perfect blend of aftermarket add-ons and the classic FJ styling that has since made the SUV a prominent choice for overland applications. Utilizing a Man a Fre 4.2-liter 2F inline-six engine and an H55F five-speed transmission, the cruiser negotiates any situation with ease, made simpler by the Old Man Emu suspension, wilderness roof rack, and extra-knobby all-terrain tires. A factory-style brown vinyl interior harkens back to the vehicle’s original 1984 upholstery, while upgraded speakers, an aftermarket shift knob, and a new ignition system round out the burly-build. Sadly, the 1984 FJ60 is no longer available via BringATrailer, but you can still head over to their site if you’re interested in similar offerings.
