The all-new Toyota Land Cruiser 300 is a very impressive vehicle, there’s no doubt about that. However, does it have the same allure as a restored and modified FJ40 Land Cruiser from 1971? We don’t think so.
This particular FJ40 Land Cruiser was recently overhauled by the folks over at Legacy Overland and sticks to the original, iconic design but has been upgraded with a host of modern features.
The most significant alteration made to the FJ40 is the fitment of a 350 cubic-inch GM V8 with Holly 6000 CFM carbs that’s coupled to a four-speed manual transmission. Legacy Overland hasn’t stated how much power the Toyota has but it is certainly much more than standard. The GM-sourced V8 also promises to make it sound much better.
