Why It’s Curated: This Toyota Land Cruiser FJ62 for sale is not only a very clean and rust-free example, but the addition of the NEW H55 Toyota 5-speed transmission transforms the vehicle. Because Toyota never delivered US vehicles with a manual, this is a unique vehicle that has had a lot of time and money put into it (over $12k for the transmission upgrade alone). If you are looking for an FJ60/2 and want one that is clean, has many upgrades and refurbishments including the transmission, OME suspension, brake system, and more, check out this FJ62.
