It's a 1980 short wheelbase FJ40 that was comprehensively rebuilt for Hanks, with significant upgrades throughout to make it a truly daily drivable four-wheel drive.


The vehicle is now powered by a modern GM L35 Vortec V6 with 180 hp, power is sent back through a 5-speed gearbox, it has air-conditioning, adjustable Porsche electric seats, power steering, and a Sony AM-FM-cassette stereo with extra speakers.

FJ40s like this have been skyrocketing in popularity in recent years, with a number of companies now specializing in restoring and modifying them.


Hanks is now selling his Land Cruiser as well as a couple of other personal vehicles at an upcoming auction. The price estimate on this Land Cruiser is $75,000+ USD which falls in line with their rapid increase in value over recent years.
