Fj Company Toyota Land Cruiser Drivers' Notes | The King Of Cool

FJ Company Toyota Land Cruiser Drivers' Notes | The king of cool

The high-end restomod community has been building in recent years. Companies like Singer Vehicle Design, Icon and Gunther Werks are building extremely high-end vehicles with price tags soaring well into the six-figure range. The FJ Company, as the name would suggest, builds some very polished and lightly modified versions of the original Toyota Land Cruiser FJ. Prices vary depending on model and options, but we managed to get a few days behind the wheel of the new range-topper, the Signature model.

This variant is based on the long-wheelbase FJ43 and starts at $200,000 before adding any options. There's a shorter wheelbase FJ40 available. Yes, that sounds like an absurd amount for a nearly 40-year-old Toyota, but a lot of time and effort goes into building these FJs. Look past the iconic sheetmetal and you'll find heated Recaro leather seats, heating and air conditioning, a backup camera, and an Apple iPad in the center console to control the radio. There are LED headlights and fog lights and a custom instrument cluster that adds digital displays into the classic housing.
