There will always be a soft spot for FJ60’s in my heart since it was the first model cruiser I ever owned…this is a great looking FJ60 that’s built but not overdone…this sweet ride is currently available on ebay

1985 FJ60 Toyota Land Cruiser

This was the Toyota Land Cruiser that started it all for me. It was our first family Toyota four wheel drive and I never realized that a true obsession with all things Land Cruiser had been sparked. I bought her for $2200 from a my friends brother in law as a 2 owner rig that was originally bought new from the Toyota dealer in Yuba City CA. We owned her for over 10 years and kept her stock with the exception of an Old Man Emu suspension kit as the stock leaf springs and shocks were saggy from the original 190K miles. Many fun trips were had in this rig…from the snowy mountains of Downieville, the north coast of CA and even a trip to 2009 Burning Man…where I slept in the back for 4 days!
Tired of fighting the CA smog laws…I reluctantly decided to sell her to a gentleman named Ted who flew all the way from The Netherlands to pick the fj60 up in person. He then proceeded to drive her cross country from CA to FL and load her on a container ship to meet her new home….Ted has since done some major restoration on the vehicle and uses her as a daily driver…good man Ted! I used the proceeds from the the Toyota FJ60 to pick up a 1972 FJ40 in Oregon…but thats another story for another time…
