TLC Stage Three Restorations.
TLC Land Cruisers are simply the best in the world. On display in Toyota's museum overseas and in service as daily drivers world wide, there are no more comprehensively restored Land Cruisers to be found. Born out of Jonathan Wards life long habit of taking vehicles all the way down to the frame and back up to new condition, these Cruisers surpass even our most demanding customers (including Toyota) expectations. Choose to stay stock with improvements in the suspension, braking and engine systems and enjoy the retro ride, or opt for our conversion designs featuring the best modern fuel injected V8 engines or diesels, five speed or automatic transmission choices, four wheel power disc brakes and much more to enhance the versatility of your Cruiser in the modern world. The process begins with photo documentation of the trucks original condition and quickly moves on to the process of disassembly. In short, the Cruisers are stripped to a bare frame and all parts are rebuilt, replaced, or otherwise restored to new condition, with a higher focus on the details than the original assembly line process ever allowed. TLC has set the standard over the last twenty years, with their Stage Three restorations of Land Cruisers.


This jaw dropping 1974 FJ55 is the quintessential pinnacle of FJ55's. Under the beautiful exterior you will find a 5.7L Vortec V8 Mfg. Part No. 12530282 installed new in 2013 along with a new radiator (mileage 27,635). Auto transmission, custom power steering, air conditioning, upgraded suspension. Rancho 9000 shocks. Custom exhaust with dual 45004 Magnaflow catalytic convertors and Magnaflow Performance muffler (Part# 12588) with one 3" Inlet and two 2.5" Outlets. Four wheel disc brakes. New fuel pump 2019. Every component of this truck was either new, rebuilt or hand crafter by some of the best builders in the USA.

The body is rust free and stunning! According to the appraisal, much, if not all of the finishes are powder coating. There is no orange peel in the finish. It's like a mirror.


New BFG AT's wrapped around Weld Racing wheels. Custom interior featuring Honda Prelude Bucket Seats custom covered in ICON Chilewich and MB Tex textiles that adds surface character and comfort. Seat insert panels absorb heat. Rubber backed floor mats designed to match. Very durable and easy to clean. This build is documented with over 100 pages of receipts.
