The Late Model FJ40 Land Cruiser Market

It is generally accepted that only 1000 1981 model year FJ40s were imported into the USA and only a handful remain. Finding a clean, later model FJ40 in the USA is becoming harder and harder.

Raquel is that rare kind of low mileage, incredible condition, late model FJ40 series that Land Cruiser enthusiasts and collectors go crazy for.
