Though many believe the original Land Cruiser was born as the FJ, post war efforts from Toyota to catch up with the mighty Land Rover from Britain received the BJ badge instead, the J referred to his Jeep capabilities and the B came from the Type B engines they featured.
DID YOU KNOW...
The FJ43 was produced until 1984. In recent years, the FJ43 has commanded a premium from collectors given its more limited availability in the US and other core markets. Nearly the same vehicle as the FJ40, the FJ43 introduced more ways to configure your FJ. It offered a longer wheelbase as well as more space in the trunk for either cargo or passengers.
