When it comes to Land Rover restorations, Arkonik are normally our first port of call and the same is true of Legacy Overland with Toyota Land Cruiser rebuilds and one of their latest offerings – this superb looking 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 – is one of our favourites to date here at The Status Life. As with all their builds, they’ve started from the ground up with this one and completely rejuvenated its aesthetic, bringing its near forty year old frame well and truly into the 21st century.
The Legacy Overland 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 has the sort of stealthy visual impact we love at The Status Life and it’s going to be a real head turner for whoever ends up getting their hands on it. Greatness is about consistency and hard work and, it’s fair to say, this infinitely eye-catching ’82 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 is the living proof of that fact. Legacy Overland have completely transformed this BJ40 into a rock-solid machine, ready for any terrain, challenge or occasion.
Another Brilliant Build
We’ve featured the quality builds of Classic Overland many a time on the pages of The Status Life and they always leave us mighty impressed with the calibre and attention to detail that goes into all their restorations. The iconic Land Cruiser has been completely upgraded with an array of new features which includes a powerful Toyota 1HD-T 4.2L 6-cylinder turbo diesel. The engine, which has been entirely rebuilt and transplanted from an 80-series Land Cruiser, more than doubles the power of this majestic Land Cruiser. Put simply, the build is made to go anywhere and tackle any terrain.
The Legacy Overland 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 has left no stone unturned in the pursuit of excellence and the power steering and disc brakes were added and it rolls on steel 16×8” wheels with Cooper STT Pro 305x70R16 tires that tackle uncompromising terrains with ease. There is a sleek finish to both the interior and exterior of this glorious looking machine and for those with a love of off-roading style vehicles with plenty of character, this one is sure to be ticking all of the right boxes.
With an interior as striking as this, it is clear that Legacy Overland spared no expense to make it look perfect when you climb inside. The truly unique interior design consists of custom-made grey perforated vegan leather that looks great and provides first-class comfort. To contrast the imposing upholstery and complete the interior design, the footwells and floors have been crafted in custom-made, black easy-to-maintain textured vinyl carpeting and covered in sound deadening matting. Another bold and brilliant restoration from Legacy Overland.
