1979 Toyota Land Cruiser HJ45

Hello! Thank you so much for your interest in our 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser. We are excited to tell you more about this build as it is a very uniquely and well built truck.

What if Toyota had built a 4-door crew cab based on the classic design lines of the original Series 45 Land Cruiser single cab pickup truck? What would it look like?

Before its restoration and rebuild, this Land Cruiser began its life as an ordinary 1979 HJ45 single cab pickup truck from a Costa Rican coffee plantation. This one-of-a-kind transformation was performed and meticulously crafted by WYLD Garage Co., Costa Rica’s leading vintage Toyota Land Cruiser restoration specialists.

Toyota manufactured several different flavors of its legendary Series 45 Land Cruiser pickup trucks for the Central and South American markets. Costa Rica received the HJ45 single cab diesel model, and Columbia received the FJ45 single cab fuel model, while Brazil got the Mercedes/Toyota diesel powered Bandeirantes. However, Toyota de Brazil Ltda. built a very limited production run of 4 door crew cab Bandeirantes that were powered by a Toyota 14B inline 4-cylinder direct injection diesel with a manual 5 speed transmission. It is this version of the Bandeirante that intrigued us and captivated our imagination.

We were fascinated so much so, that we originally purchased several 4 door Bandeirantes and restored them to original specifications, but the Brazilian styling, with the square plastic grills and headlights, and the clumsy design of the convoluted dash and instrument panel, left much to be desired. Even worse was the bulky and ill-conceived square truck beds, which felt like an afterthought and an insult to the legacy of the classic lines that made the Series 45 vintage Land Cruiser pickup truck such and icon of automotive history.

So, we took what we learned from the previous Bandeirante restorations, and we set out to build the Series 45 vintage Land Cruiser 4 door crew cab pickup truck that Toyota should have made! This is an exceptionally built and fully modernized 4-door crew cab with all the modern amenities of a late model Toyota Land Cruiser, but with the rugged good looks of the world-renowned Series 45 vintage Toyota Land Cruiser pickup truck. We hope you enjoy.
