The Land Cruiser has been Toyota's longest-consecutively produced model, having officially entered production in 1951. Interestingly, the concept was hatched in 1936, when the Japanese Imperial Army produced the Kurogane Type 95 4-wheel drive spy vehicle. This idea percolated with the military, and in 1941, the Japanese government asked Toyota to develop a light truck for the army, which they began developing on paper. It would be during this time frame too, that the Japanese would confiscate a Bantam GP/Willys MB in the Philippines during their occupation. It was sent to Toyota for production of a similar vehicle. After studying and testing the Bantam/Willys, the Yon-Shiki Kogata Kamotsu-Sha, or Type-4 Compact Cargo Truck was developed, a half-ton truck that looked a bit Bantam/Willys and a bit FJ-40. This would be the springboard for the Land Cruiser, which would compete globally with the likes of Land Rover and the Nissan Patrol, and in the USA with the likes of Jeep, International Harvester, Ford, Dodge and Chevrolet. Needless to say, the stage was set for some exponential competition, however, Land Cruiser always proved its worth and became hugely popular with not only the military, but farms and ranches and off-road enthusiasts alike.
