We first came across The FJ Company’s work at SEMA 2016 and were impressed by their workmanship. The company’s latest promotional video gives a peek inside their shop, showing how much effort goes into building one of their FJ40s.
Unlike some of its creations that use 80-Series FZ sixes, the Classic model uses an original 2F engine, but completely rebuilt with new internals. The rest of the build, such as chassis balancing and paint, is just as impressive. The transmissions are 5-speed units from Japanese or Australian 60-Series.
Basically, they’re the Singer Porsches of the Land Cruiser world — classic vehicles with some modern improvements for comfort and drivability that don’t detract from the style and spirit of the original.
