A Blast From the Past: The 1990 Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota fans looking to add a classic to their garage are in for a treat. This 1990 Toyota FJ-62 Land Cruiser has decades of history dating back to 1941. When the Imperial Japanese Army occupied the Philippines in 1941, they found an American Jeep. They sent it to Japan and ordered Toyota to produce a similar vehicle with an altered appearance. Later that year, Toyota was instructed to produce a light truck and the AK10 prototype, achieved by reverse-engineering a Bantam GP, was developed. In 1954, after claims of trademark violation, Toyota renamed the truck “Land Cruiser.” 

Although the postwar Land Cruiser shares few similarities to the AK10, there were aspects that helped develop the truck we know today. The first generation began production in 1951 and has since then, been produced in convertible, hardtop, station wagon, and cab chassis body styles. The Land Cruiser is Toyota’s longest-running series of models.

A solid truck with a great look

This Land Cruiser sports a grey exterior paint and original grey interior in excellent condition. It also recently had a full glass out repaint for a refreshed look. The 4-wheel-drive means you can tackle your outdoor adventures fearlessly all season long. Mickey Thompson wheels and BF Goodrich tires keep you secure on the road in any condition. The truck also has electronic fuel injection, automatic transmission, and Old Man Emu suspension. It has solid air conditioning, an upgraded Pioneer stereo, and power windows as well. There has also been a recent tune-up and fluid service, so this Land Cruiser is in tip-top shape.

The truck has a clean CarFax and 163,659 miles under its belt. It spent most of its life in Montana and Arizona.
