Classic 1972 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 4×4

Classic Land Cruiser restored to factory specifications. No lifts or engine swap here. This FJ40 is true and correct. Toyota brand parts only used in this restoration. This FJ has great metal under the freshly painted Hudson green, an OEM Toyota color. We took a paint meter to it and found no rust and all factory sheet metal and factory welds. One of the cleanest FJ40’s we have ever come across. All the lights, bumpers, emblems, handles, hubcaps, and wheels are in great condition. The same will be said for the interior. Freshly recovered seats, clean and clear glass, clean and undamaged knobs, and nice interior paint. It does have the rear jump seats to haul some friends around too. The engine is in stock form and has plenty of pep. This is one stylish FJ that is in original condition.

The trailer is made from a new steel FJ43 tub and is paint matched in Toyota Freeborn Red to match the tow vehicle.  Trailer has a reinforced frame and axles that match the Toyota bolt pattern.  The custom front storage box and rear tailgate

Volcan 4×4 does Toyota Land Cruiser importing & restoration…the right way!

I am excited to see a brand new company like Volcan 4X4 importing and restoring high quality vintage Toyota Land Cruisers from Colombia into the USA. They are the number one importer of Colombian Toyota Land Cruiser trucks. Check out Volcan 4×4’s website and prepare to be impressed!
I recently spoke to the owner Charlie Guy, and this is what he had to say about the growing business:
” I started Volcan 4×4, LLC which is a Florida and Colombian based business specializing in sourcing, restoring and importing unique classic Toyota Land Cruisers. We are specializing in FJ43 models also.  We have been working since we started the business in early 2014 and are now on our 10th truck in process with 5 shipped into the US so far. We hope to do 20 trucks this year making us the number one importing of Colombian classic Land Cruisers.  We are focusing on trucks in the $30,000 to $60,000 price range”
This is one of our trucks below…

“This one we mostly bought this way from a Colombian airline pilot Land Cruiser enthusiast and did a light restoration. Just a FUN truck I could not pass up.  Most of our trucks we do frame on or frame off restorations and follow an original theme.
I believe that Volcan 4×4 is the only US citizen owned business bringing these great trucks out of Colombia. We are unique in that I speak Spanish and live part time in Colombia and oversee all the restorations. We have some great FJ43s coming soon and a frame off 1961 FJ40. The 1961s were very rare in the US with under 250 imported in 1961.”

1980 BJ41 Diesel Right Hand Drive Toyota Land Cruiser (Expedition Rig)

Here is well loved BJ41 expedition rig currently listed for sale on Ebay

So I have come to the sad realization that I don’t use or drive this truck enough and would like to begin looking for a new home for it. Somewhere where someone will have time to spend with the rig, enjoy it and take it on new fun adventures.

Where to start…

Brief history:

1980 BJ41 (JDM). I bought it in 2009 in New Zeeland and spent a month touring the north and south islands with it. I shipped it back to my home town of Baltimore Ro-Ro and picked it up in Baltimore. It saw lite use there until I decided to take it to South America. In the summer of 2011 it was shipped to Boulder Colorado where my cousin (A Toyota rock crawling advocate and head of a machine shop) spent 3 months converting it to an overland expedition rig. In the fall of 2011 it was containerized and shipped to Buenos Aires Argentina. I picked it up in the opening days of 2012 and drove 5,000km south to Ushuaia inTierra Del Fuego before driving all the way to the very top of South America in Colombia. In July 2012 it was again containerized and shipped to my new home in Houston. It sees weekly use now and lives in a garage.
