History: these classic Land Cruisers were so accepted that 1973 marked the 300,000 unit worldwide production with the final ones being made in 1983, these were very strong vehicles to be used “in the wild” as well for use in the snow in Austria or Minnesota, these also featured these qualities  along with a great design that is truly automotive investment history, really a Landmark Design, this style was built until 1983 and became a piece of automotive history with great following all over the world, this American production with the uprated build is ready for show and driving in the ‘real world’, this shows 53,300 miles that is not accurate, there are receipts in the file of some $5900 in recent work and maintenance on this restored 1974 FJ, the operation of all the systems is really outstanding.
