For Sale: 1997 Lexus LX450 in Savannah, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1997 Lexus LX450 (this is the Lexus version of the Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ80). Finished in black over oak leather interior, this LX450 / J80 has seen a host of desirable upgrades including a heavy duty winch bumper with auxiliary lighting, a 9,000 lb winch and an Ironman 2-inch suspension lift. It's a great looking-truck without any rust issues to note (floors and rockers are excellent) but the black paint has started to fade, especially on the hood and upper portions of the body panels. Bumpers, body cladding, fender flares and running boards are all in excellent condition. Factory 16-inch wheels are wearing 295/75R16 Toyo all-terrrain tires with 2020 date codes (the tire size is equivalent to 33.4x11.6 inches). New headlight assemblies are crystal clear (astute observers will note the grille is a Toyota unit, not Lexus, because the Lexus-specific lights could not be sourced - the fit is perfect).

The LX450 was available with one interior - "oak" leather, which you see here. This truck retains a very nice dash, steering wheel, door panels, carpets and headliner. Front seats are showing some wear (especially the driver's seat) and are fitted with attractive covers. The leather on the rear seats and third row seats remains in good original condition. All gauges, lights, switches and indicators are working as they should and the A/C blows cold. The factory head unit has been replaced with a Pioneer AVH-210EX touch-screen for modern functionality (including a backup camera). The only other deviation from stock is the addition of a custom 3D-printed cupholder on the center console to the right of the shifter.

The 4.5L 1FZ-FE 24-valve straight six under the hood is an excellent powerplant and a nice upgrade in performance over the older 3F from the FJ80. It's mated to a smooth-shifting overdrive automatic transmission. Service under present ownership includes all new exhaust, tune up with new plugs and wires, fuel filter, radiator, thermostat, belts, hoses, tie rod ends, rebuilt front birfield axles, rebuilt front brakes, plus other routine maintenance. Very dry underneath with no significant leaks to note. Runs and drives great with all systems working as they should.

Under present enthusiast ownership since 2020, this Land Cruiser has been used as a nice weather weekend driver including family trips to the Outer Banks and rescuing friends stuck in the mud in less capable trucks. It's mechanically well sorted, and with fewer than 200,000 miles has lots of life left in it for subsequent owners.
