No, it’s not a restored and modded ’66 Toyota Land Cruiser. It might actually be better than the classic safari wagon it’s modeled after. The FJ44 is a new, handmade custom utility machine built by Van Nuys, California’s ICON. Designer/builder Jonathan Ward produces this and other models marrying classic ’Yota styling with new alloy bodies, new engines and a sick array of custom parts. Like a steering wheel from a Caterpillar earth mover, Mercedes softtops, and interior bits from Lear jets.
The FJ45 was only available in the U.S. from 1963-1967. Originally offered as a short bed pickup with fixed or removable top & doors, a long bed pickup with removable top & doors and as a 4-door wagon. However, availability of the these models is quite limited.
