Lot 267 - 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45
|Estimate||£14,000 - £18,000|
- Rare and desirable
- Rugged with great reliability
The Toyota Land Cruiser, in its many sizes and configurations, has had a long and successful history of reliable service through the most rugged of conditions. Patterned after the ubiquitous Jeep and Land Rover utility vehicles, the Land Cruiser demonstrated that Toyota could produce much more than just economical cars. Introduced in 1960, it was available as the FJ40 series (with F engines) but also BJ40/41/42 (short wheelbase), BJ43/44/46 (middle wheelbase) or HJ45/47 (long wheelbase). In line with this, a number of chassis options were also available with half cabs, soft tops and doors and six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. They became indispensable in unsettled and remote areas of the world, hauled safaris through Africa, developed a devoted following among America's off-road culture and have spawned a host of imitators. Finding a good vintage example of these archetypical utility vehicles can be difficult.
This Toyota FJ45 pick-up was originally registered in South Africa and imported into the UK in 2015. Finished in white with black interior, this rugged Land Cruiser presents in good order throughout and is aesthetically improved by the fitment of a bull bar and roll over bars. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a current MoT test certificate valid until 8th October 2018, this right hand drive, rare FJ45 pick-up offers the flexibility of road or off-road motoring.
