The place was abuzz with excitement. How could it not be? At the Overland Edition of the Gears on the Piers hosted at the Manhattan Classic Car Club (CCC), the place was full of iconic overland trucks, all anchored by four of Legacy Overland’s own arresting 4x4 showpieces.
It's been quite a journey since we started working on our beloved 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40. From its two-decade life as an off-roader in family trips to the months it spent in our garage, under the attentive and meticulous care of our experienced mechanics and upholsterers, this iconic 4x4 has emerged from an in-depth frame-off restauration to become a media star.
