The Toyota Land Cruiser 40 Series was produced primarily for model year(s) 1961-1984, with production extended beyond that for a small number of models in specific markets. Consisting largely of the FJ40, FJ43, and FJ45 models and their variants, 40-series Land Cruisers are considered some of the most dependable vintage 4x4’s ever produced. Vehicles produced with the "FJ" designation are gas powered, while those with the "BJ" and "HJ" model designation have diesel engines. In recent years, the classic car market has shown a particular interest in original 40-series Land Cruisers and highly modified versions built by professional resto-mod shops.
