Todd had brought the vehicle to us after buying it to install a soft-top, restore a set of factory hard doors and addressing misc. mechanical issues. We ended up letting Todd know that The Land Cruiser needed more work, and his plan was to fully restore the vehicle in the spring of 2020. However, with our backlog, he decided to leave the vehicle for us to fully restore it. Once we started to restore the vehicle, we found a lot of old repairs done by previous owners that were not “up to par” with what we do at our facility, and as the build went on Todd wanted one of the nicest Land Cruiser Fj-40s around. So we ended up building the Land Cruiser from the ground up. The only pieces of the vehicle that were left to use were the front grille, hood, frame and axles. Everything else has been replaced with new components or used from our salvage yard. We kept the build kind of what it was with different year components from all various years, making it unique and one of a kind, “The best of all the cruisers”. For example, I personally like the early directional turn signals and hood trim to make it look vintage, but it also has modern disc brakes and vent windows on the hardtop.
