We absolutely have to show you this rustic oldi. The vehicle comes from the tuner's halls "The FJ Company" which the 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser as complete 'RestoManufactured'Completed some time ago. For example, while the team from ECD Automotive Design specializing in the restoration and modification of the legendary Land Rover Defender, "The FJ Company" is calibrated for the Toyota Land Cruiser. In this category, the Miami-based company belongs to the Creme de la Creme and, for example, presented us at the beginning of the year 1981 Toyota G45-S Land Cruiser with 318 supercharged horsepower shown what the boys and girls are capable of. And the 1984 Toyota Land Cruiser is one of the last projects.
SEMA 2018 exhibition vehicle
Of course, the classic with code name G43-S has been completely restored and set back in the condition of a new car. As a typical Restomod vehicle, however, innumerable components from the present could not be missing. Chassis and body have been significantly revised and in some cases the new 4,0-liter V6 (1GR-FE) including a Manguson compressor and a peak output of 320 hp have not reinforced the chassis at the first gas surge. And of course you have also installed a modern power steering and a high-performance sports brake system goes without saying. The engine is coupled to a manual five-speed manual transmission and the occupants can enjoy amenities such as air conditioning. And so that the Land Cruiser can be moved appropriately, a brand new chassis is also installed and even high-end technology such as traction and stability control or limited slip differentials on the axles are now on board.
Stainless steel sports exhaust system for the V6
Acoustically, the new engine makes itself felt through the stainless steel sports exhaust system and many small components such as the modern LED headlights up to the powerful WARN cable winch integrate perfectly IN and AN the classic. The body, which is largely made up of new components and has a galvanized sheet, is covered in a cement gray metallic paint finish, and the cabin has also been completely redesigned. The most important components here are a brand new leather interior in brown / red and there was also a new sound system, a reversing camera or a digital instrument cluster. And here, too, it is the countless small details, such as the new pedals or the folding rear seats, which, on request, significantly increase the loading area, which make the G43-S unique.
