Presenting the1963 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ45 Factory Short Bed in Toyota Heath Grey #113
This was the first year for the FJ45 Pickup Series and this VIN number is one of the few earliest known in the world to still exist. In fact, factory short beds are extremely rare and had unique features not found on the long bed pickups. A fixed hard top version like this one was only available early as later years went to the removable hard top. This rare Land Cruiser was a special order into Costa Rica in 1962 and it arrived in 1963 when it was first titled. Technically built in 1962 but sold in 1963 it received an original 1963 title as was the common practice. The Land Cruiser found its way into Panama from Costa Rica in the 70s where an engineer who worked for the Panama Canal owned it, but it returned to Costa Rica in 1985 where it was used for general errand use for years in the central valley near San Jose before it was rescued by our team and brought back better than new.
