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.
