REMEMBER, IT’S NOT JUST A TOYOTA LAND CRUISER, IT’S A VINTAGE LAND CRUISER! (sm)

This is not just any Land Cruiser restorationit’s another custom, Vintage Cruiser Co., Toyota Land Cruiser restoration!  This simply means that, bolt for bolt, you get the highest quality restoration for the best possible price.  Guaranteed!

Our pricing is the most competitive because all of our restorations are done by our team of professionals, in Costa Rica, where parts are plentiful and labor is more competitive.

The Vintage Cruiser Co. is a restoration company and not a car broker/reseller.

The Vintage Cruiser Co. doesn’t just purchase second-hand Toyota Land Cruisers in Costa Rica, mark them up without restoring them, and resell/import them to/for our customers for a hefty profit without adding value to the transaction.  The Vintage Cruiser Co. sources (purchases) Toyota Land Cruisers, takes them back to our restoration workshop in the mountains of Costa Rica, and properly restores them, frame-off, so our clients know they are getting a newly restored Toyota Vintage Land Cruiser, and not a second-hand and un-restored one that many before have owned and used (possibly mistreated) before them.

Our clients are the first owners of their newly restored Toyota Vintage Cruiser!

All of our custom restorations start with a solid Land Cruiser frame and chassis, from Costa Rica, that we completely take apart and/or painstakingly restore to its original factory condition.  We restore only two Toyota Land Cruisers at a time and have a 60 day waiting list for new clients.  All of our Vintage Cruisers come with clean and clear Florida titles.  We take care of all import related documentation, duties, fees, DOT and EPA requirements, and you get a 100% properly imported vehicle that is transferable in any one of the fifty states or your money back. Guaranteed!

1978 Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser Frame off restoration

LOVE THE MUSTARD!!!

 

1978, the last year of the classic round bezel and most sought after in those models.  The restoration started with a cosmetic overhaul after all mechanical checks and maintenance.  The whole truck was torn down piece by piece and attended to.  The rear tub was replaced with an aluminum aqualu tub upgrade ($5000)……no worries of ever rusting!  (The FJ tubs were susceptible to rust especially at the rocker panels and rear quarters due to poor quality sheet metal.)  All new Toyota OEM replacements were used when available.  Engine bay is all original with the exception of the carburetor which is a Weber.  Engine fires right up without the need of the choke.   The original 2F 4spd engine has less than 100K miles, runs extremely strong, and cruises comfortably down the road.  All cylinders passed compression tests. All smog components are still in tact (just not attached). This can be easily reconnected if your state requires it (CA). 

Tires are all new 33″ BFG Mud Terrains.  Just added a new Optima battery and muffler.  All new OEM weather stripping, emblems, correct stainless steel hardware, door run channels, etc.  Seats have been re-upholstered with all new CCOT leather covers exact to Toyota specs.  Suspension includes a 3.5″ lift kit with OME springs and RC shocks.  The original radio in dash was left for classic appeal and value, but a JVC CD player was added in addition to a Tuffy console box.    All spot weld marks were attended to……..all body lines are smooth like today’s cars (not wavy in the sunlight like original).  No expense spared on the meticulous paint job.  Truck looks and rides better than factory.

This truck has spent 90% of it’s life in Missouri with it’s original owner and garage kept.  I have owned many FJ40’s over the years, and this was probably the cleanest find I’ve come across as far as it’s condition.  I can confidently say that over 85% of the FJ’s I find will not make the cut for restoration.  Climate shows these are becoming more popular in the high end auctions (Barrett-Jackson, Mecum) as they have topped over $100K in less time than predicted (2013).  Pics do not do this FJ justice……it is a showroom piece.

Cool BJ45 truck on Ebay…if I only had unlimited resources…lol!

This super rare Diesel pick up truck has been fully restored, and is in excellent condition. You just don’t find diesel Toyota Land Cruiser pick up trucks in this condition for this price. 


The truck is very clean and rust free. Take a look at the undercarriage and see that it is rust free and in excellent condition. The truck bed is original and also in excellent condition. The interior has all new upholstery. 


This truck will turn heads when you drive down the road. Its 6cyl diesel engine will get down the highway at a good 70mph, and still get 22mpg. With high torque, pull your trailer or boat anywhere. You can drive this on bio diesel and even used vegetable oil. Drive your truck for FREE!

The truck has been inspected by a Toyota mechanic, and he was impressed by everything. There are no problems or anything that needs to be fixed. 


These trucks are only getting rarer and harder to find. We don’t sell just any Land Cruiser, but we sell the best, that have been taken care of and are in excellent condition as this one is.

These are a great investment, because of their increasing value. Don’t miss out on this one before they aren’t available anymore.
