In America's vast and ever expanding collector car culture you can find many different definitions of cool. There are rarities with long stories and big exclusivity that are bought to be shown, talked about and referenced. There are purpose-built performance machines which are tailored to specific activities or events. There are chrome-laden classics that honor years, eras and even lifestyles which have come and gone. And then there are pieces like this exclusive Land Cruiser FJ43 that are utilitarian, easy to own and just a blast to drive!

Fully-sorted and fully polished, this trail blazing FJ is one of the toughest and most capable SUVs ever built. A rare medium wheelbase Land Cruiser that presents a better-than-factory appearance, the truck benefitted from a detailed, body-off restoration. During that reboot, solid metal was worked bare, promptly re-sprayed in quaint Dune Beige pigment and shrouded in a fresh canvas roof. And presently, that Rhino-inspired shell creates a classy, wet-look profile that mixes searing glares with smooth reflections.

Mechanically, this FJ exemplifies that top-notch restoration with a correct Type F engine, which wears a familiar “2F” assembly stamp. Based on General Motor's stalwart Stovebolt Six, Toyota's famous overhead valve mill isn't a grossly overpowered piece, producing a competent 125 horsepower. But it's certainly proven its ability to get this compact 4x4 out of many tight situations and tow just about any moderately sized toy its owners can imagine. The truck's rugged 5-speed utilizes agreeable gearing to serve up an awesome combination of on-road capability and off-road prowess. Power-assisted steering is a pleasant and equally exclusive luxury in the world vintage SUVs. Power-assisted discs and drums bring everything to a quick halt. A factory chassis rides a factory-spec suspension that mixes a pair of solid axles with a quartet of leaf springs. And at the corners of the floor, Charcoal steelies spin 31x10.50R15LT BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As around Warn hubs and stainless center caps.

Inside this classic, you'll find a spacious and comfortable cockpit that has enough room to be your vehicle of choice for any weekend adventure. Fully restored seats, a split-bench up front and opposing rear jumps, are wrapped in high quality vinyl. In front of the driver, a boxy, body-matched dash hangs restored telemetry above modern air conditioning. Below that dash, a duo of shifters, one for the 5-speed and one for the 4-wheel drive, ride thick floor mats. And the driver stays connected to the road thanks to a factory-issue steering wheel.

Because the extended FJ43 was never officially sold in the U.S. market, this immaculate specimen is a highly desirable classic that headlines an increasingly popular segment of the collector car market. That means this exclusive Toyota is an all-around winner when it comes to restoration and appreciation. So, what are you waiting for? Break out the compass and set your heading to RK Motors Charlotte for your chance to own one of the nicest Land Cruisers on the planet!
