You are looking at a beautiful 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser HJ45 / FJ45 Diesel pick-up truck that has undergone a complete frame-off restoration. It has had every bolt and component removed and restored to better than original condition. The restoration is flawless and museum collector's quality. This is NOT what is referred to as a "twenty footer" that looks great from 20 feet, but when you get close, its just in good condition.
This is a flawless frame-off restoration at any distance and that is why it has a price in the mid-thirties and not in the mid-twenties!
This HJ45 is originally from Costa Rica and was restored in Costa Rica where FJ/HJ45s and FJ/BJ40s are common and plentiful, although not in this impeccably restored condition. It currently sits at my home in Costa Rica and will be headed to Miami, via shipping container, shortly after the end of the auction to be completely processed and imported pursuant to EPA and DOT regulations (exempt due to 25+ years old). The FH45 will be registered in Florida and the winning bidder will receive a clean Florida title when the transaction is completed.
I travel on an average of once a month to Costa Rica to scout for restoration candidates and have them either restored to original condition (20 footers), or have the 40s/45s restored (frame-off) to better than original condition and in showroom quality when the right candidate is found (perfect at any distance). This HJ45 has turned out to be the nicest pickup truck I have ever seen completed!
This is not the FJ45 (gasoline) but rather the HJ45 (diesel) and is very rare in the US in any condition and almost non-existent in this complete frame-off restoration condition.
Bid with confidence! As the winning bidder you will undoubtedly have the nicest HJ45 in the USA!
Since eBay will only let me place a maximum of 24 pictures on the listing, I have included a link below to our Flickr account where you can see even more high-resolution pictures of this awesome HJ45. I have one other HJ45 for sale that you can also see, which although is not a frame-off restoration, is still a very nice, original, and quality restoration. There is also another impeccable FJ40 that has also undergone a complete frame-off restoration with every bolt and component removed, and that one is priced in the high 40s and worth every penny and is by far the nicest FJ40 anywhere and also in true collector's museum quality condition.
