1980 Toyota FJ40
Why This Car Is Special
The restored 1980 Toyota FJ40 we have here at Skyway Classics is the perfect mix of vintage and new. It is a classic 4×4 that has an iconic and timeless look but with an engine transformation by putting in a modern Chevrolet V8 Vortec engine, which gives the car plenty of power and acceleration.
This Toyota Land Cruiser is very clean, very solid, and in amazing condition. And a good representation of what it looked like when it was brand new as well as what it has been made into today.
