1982 Toyota FJ45 Land Cruiser, 55,489 miles, finished in correct factory Toyota Pollux orange with gray interior. This truck has gone through a complete frame-off nut and bolt restoration using OEM factory Toyota parts. This example is also a factory power steering, power brakes and A/C truck, a rare combination that is a must for any Toyota collector or enthusiast.
1982 was one of the last years for US FJ style land cruiser production, and the “45” longer wheelbase pickup designation being one of the rarest for the year. Hundreds of hours went into the restoration of this FJ45, with the sourcing of the OEM parts, plus the labor concerning the all metal body work, upholstery, paint, and assembly.
Having dealt with many classic FJ’s in the past, we have found it to be very rare to find a restored truck that is this close to factory spec. Many have some sort of custom element that some buyers may not want, or find unnecessary. This truck has been restored by someone who had an eye for detail and a desire to stay as close to the factory design as possible. Things like the half dome hubcaps, period correct style tires, factory style wiring harness, and correct bumpers are small details that set this truck apart from a lot of the restored FJ’s that ever appear on the market.
