FJ40 if I’m not wrong. Don’t know what tyres they are but they look like 33” muddies.
If you want to see real Landcruisers you should come to Australia. Sometime I saw one that I could probably walk under.

Nice catch. Its in immaculate shape. What kind of power unit did it have.

Also the red coat of arms on the grille, looks like the Oman Royal Crest. Do tell more

Nicely done up FJ. A chap in Hyderabad owns one of these 'Japanese Jeeps '. We saw it at the Offroad meet at Munnar, Kerala.

Saw several of these in Australia, many are being used in farming applications apart from off-roading.

The LC looks great, in great condition also. Do you own her? If so some interior and more detailed pics would make us feel better.

Iím sure some people use the old FJs on their farms but Iím talking about 4X4 competitions like Woodpecker, Tufftruck and other winching challenges. These FJs and GQ Patrols are a favourite for most extreme 4x4 comps. I once drove one of these FJ40s with a 351 Chev V8, but it was a 2WD.

Guy was this machine competing with Nissan patrol(jonga) in japan in those days?

Somehow it looks like both have similar body lines

Considering the age of those Land Cruisers it is in great condition. Are these easily available in India and are there any skilled restoration options.
Would love to own something like this
