Land Cruiser are already a noteworthy sight on the classic car scene, and the FJ55 is arguably one of the rarest seen of them all. This particular one show off its distinction nicely with a two-tone white and green that utilizes the curves and creases of the sheetmetal for natural dividing lines. Even with the uniqueness of this four-door 4x4, it's unmistakably a tough-as-nails Land Cruiser. The big round headlights, large marker lights on the fenders, and sturdy/boxy design easily make them kin to their other FJ brothers. And just like the other Land Cruisers, this one has an instant off-road ready attitude. The tall 4x4 stance, HD push bumper with Warn winch attached, KC lights, full-size spare (on a swing-away mount that includes a ladder and jack,) and the trailer hitch are all part of a package that isn't afraid to keep going when the pavement ends.
Inside you find the true advantages of the FJ55. It features two wide bench seats (with seatbelts), doors that shut solid, and plenty of cargo room. It makes for such a nice SUV for family and friends. So there was even extra sound deadening material added to keep everyone comfortable. And speaking of comfort, there are the right upgrades like R134a air conditioning and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth. And the power rear window with fold-down tailgate makes it the ideal place to do sit while you roast campsite marshmallows.
The engine bay has had a ton of terrific investments. It starts with an upgrade to a 4.2-liter 2F inline six motor. This was rebuilt about 4,000 miles ago, and that includes bored .30 (now approx. 4.4-liters total,) RV cam, port & polished cylinder head, new carb, and wrapped header. Not only do you have a stronger motor, but you also get better control over it all with an upgrade to a five-speed manual transmission from Man-A-Fre. Even the transfer case was rebuilt to keep this a go-anywhere 4x4. But more than just off-road prowess, the improvements also made it great for anytime driving. This includes additions like power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. There's even a large aluminum radiator to keep you running cool in traffic.
This is an impressive classic for on or off-road. So when this nicely upgraded FJ55 Land Cruiser is also so obtainability priced, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call today!!!
