Since it was restored to look like it came off the showroom floor in the 80s, this particular FJ45 looks clean. In fact, the vehicle has only racked up over 600 miles or just 965 km on the clock. Even the interior still comes with the instruction decals for the locking wheel hubs and 4WD system which enthusiasts will appreciate. Bringing some modern amenities inside the classic FJ45 is a 1-DIN head unit with a USB port.
