La Aduana: 1971 Toyota Land Cruiser


The 40 series Toyota Land Cruiser is one of those vehicles that could be considered an overlanding icon. Its reliability and longevity in even the toughest conditions has earned it the reputation of a workhorse the world over. But with production ending almost thirty years ago, the 40 series can be a difficult vehicle to track down, especially if you want a truck that runs well and isn’t coated in a layer of rust. Fortunately, there are still some well-preserved examples of these vehicles, such as this pristine 1971 FJ40.

With only 16,108 miles on the odometer, this well restored soft-top looks about as great as it did the day it left the showroom floor. If you are looking to get into one of these classics, without the hassle of doing your own restoration, then this may just be your answer.
