This FJ40 Just Shed Its Skin and Came Back Twice as Nice

Fly, butterfly, fly

When the FJ Company has an announcement, we are all ears. And eyes. Mostly eyes.

It’s clear to see why. The Miami-based restoration shop has a singular obsession with a very singular car: the FJ40, an iconic series of Land Cruisers that Toyota rolled off the line from 1960-1984.

Every custom Land Cruiser they touch turns to pure nostalgic gold, and that streak continues with their newest release, a toy car- and hot rod-inspired ’72 they brought up to speed with a new 3F-E engine, five-speed transmission, scratch-resistant interior, sport seats and a metallic orange paint job.

They even threw a functional bottle opener on the bespoke front bumper. That’s for use at the destination, of course.

These guys just think of everything.
