We begging by disassembling the FJ40’s body. The hard top was removed and

dismantled. All body attachments inside and out where removed from the body –

including doors, hood, fenders, hinges, roll bar, seats, bumpers, all attachments, etc.

After disassembling, 108 individual parts were sandblasted to white metal and sealed

with self-etching primer for the ultimate rust protection. Each part was hand sanded

three times before painting to assure the ultimate smooth finish. All body parts where

individually painted before reassembly

The factory acrylic enamel paint for a factory superior finish was use. Roll bar, seat

frames, is repainted as well as the entire interior. Center console, instrument panel,

glove box door, ashtray, air filter housing, Hood hooks, gas line cover are powder

knobs are all refinished as well as rear heater is bead blasted and refinished.

Hardware: All nuts/bolts and much of the FJ40 hardware is re-plated to its original

factory look with a non-corrosive yellow zinc plating. Finished interior looks and smells

Volcan 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 + Matching Trailer

This is awesome!!!
Here is the latest from Volcan 4×4…a restored FJ43 (3rd of 5 inbound for 2014). Truck is in route to Tampa, Florida from Colombia and for sale on Hemmings. Her name is ESTELLA and is named after a lovely family friend in Colombia.
This is an extensive frame on restoration of a strong running, late model FJ43. Truck has a hard top, a custom soft top pickup top and a “coastrunner” open sided beach soft top.
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
were hand made by resourceful Colombian metal workers.
We plan to offer these custom off-road trailers to FJ40 owners in the US for $6900. We can paint each trailer in any classic Toyota color as well.

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.”

1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 (full frame off restoration)

Another very nice restored 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 available from catsexotics.com via Ebay

1970 Toyota FJ40

1970 Toyota Land Cruiser finished in Tan over Gray interior. Having had a meticulous restoration just completed less then 250 miles ago; the rust free body was stripped to bare metal at the start of this no expense spared restoration.

Runs and looks better than when it left the factory. A vehicle to enjoy as its upward value as a collection piece keeps moving forward.

This car has gone through our Cats Exotics 75 point used vehicle inspection and is available upon request.

1973 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 (Factory PTO)

Another dream FJ40 for sale on Ebay!

1973 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 Hard Top with factory PTO winch.  This vehicle is a museum-quality, rotisserie, frame-off, hand built, nut and bolt restoration.  It is exact to original manufactures specifications and appears just as it did when it rolled off the ARACO Toyota production line back in 1973.  You will not find a more original or meticulously restored FJ40.  There are well in excess of a thousand hours in this build, and probably just as many in research and parts acquisition in order to maintain integrity.  As much as the photos show, this vehicle is even more impressive in person.

This restoration is unique in that it began with what’s known as a “survivor” – an incredibly complete and unmolested specimen.  All components are original to the vehicle and meticulously refurbished. The entire vehicle was disassembled and cataloged.  All hardware and adornments were retained, cleaned, yellow zinc plated or re-chromed as per factory specification.

For new parts, every effort was made to use NOS OEM Toyota parts and rebuild kits sourced from the local Toyota dealership or from other reputable Land Cruiser Specialists.  Aftermarket parts were only used when absolutely necessary and only because the originals were no longer available.  No expense was spared and the attention to detail of this restoration is second to none.  Every decal, nut, and bolt is correct in its application.

Refurbished parts:
*   Chassis
*   Frame and respective components were media blasted and powder coated

*   All body pieces were coated with a self-etching primer and single-stage acrylic enamel paint
*   The color is the elusive “Heath Grey”, Toyota paint code T-113, and was available on FJ40s in the 1973 model year
*     The floor and underside of the tub were sprayed with a color matched, tinted raptor liner for sound dampening and durability
*     Electrical wiring harnesses were circuit-tested and re-wrapped
*      The fiberglass top was sanded down, re-coated with epoxy resin, repainted with Toyota’s “Cignus White”, and given a new headliner and visors.
Interior:
*      New, custom-sewn vinyl seat covers identical to the original in color and appearance
*      New OEM shifter boots
*      All glass is original and displays the Toyota trademark in the corners
*      Seat frames, front and rear heaters, doors, console, steering wheel, dash, AM radio, knobs, pedals (including arms and bucket), wiper mechanism and seat belts are original and re-finished

Equally impressive:
*     Extremely rare original tool bag complete with stamped Toyota tools
*     Iconic yellow bottle jack and rods
*     Factory trouble light in its original plastic case
*     Genuine owners manual.

Even the ignition key is brand new OEM Toyota and comes inside a factory key wallet where it shares space with the new front and rear door keys.  As a finishing touch, no true period restoration would be complete without a matching set of license plates of the very same vintage.  It even smells like a new car inside!  No respectable collection is complete without an FJ40 in the stable, here’s your chance. Please visit the following link to be directed to an online photo album containing supplemental images, which chronicle each stage of my process in detail.  The album is organized such that there are before and after comparative pictures, followed by a complete chronicle of the restoration, and wrapped up with additional images of the finished Cruiser.
