This FJ Company Custom Build is Inspired by Hot Rods and Tonka Trucks

It wasn’t long ago that we featured the Toyota Hilux Tonka Concept, now we bring news of an FJ Company custom build that was inspired by a Tonka truck the client had as a child. The FJ40 project represents the fulfilment of two dreams – a father passing on his knowledge and passion for classic cars, and a son who brought his father’s legacy full circle.

This 1972 FJ40 Land Cruiser re-build draws heavily from the world of custom hot rods, toy trucks, and Land Cruisers of yore. FJ Company began with a frame-off restoration before the client hand-picked classic features from different eras to suit their style. This included hot rod-inspired paint, Mickey Thompson wheels, Cooper Discoverer A/T3 tires and a body-coloured jerry can. An incredibly nice touch is the bottle opener fixed to the custom front bumper, perfect for beer-o-clock.

The vehicle wasn’t equipped with its original engine, which gave FJ Company the license to go all-out and fully modernise the driving experience. FJ Company rebuilt the Toyota 3F-E engine and paired it with a 5-speed manual transmission. Add in the Old Man Emu suspension, power steering and LED headlights for a Land Cruiser that’s equipped to handle both rough roads and the joys of reverse parking.

Inside, you’ll find a cabin that’s made for kids and dogs, commutes and camping. Raptor bed liner adds a super-tough coating to the floor, preventing scuffs and scratches, while the marine-grade audio system keeps the tunes coming, even in wet conditions. Cabin comfort is further enhanced with the Vintage Air A/C and heated Corbeau Sport Seats with black vinyl trim.
