This customized 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 was commissioned by Tom Hanks and built to his specifications. It's now powered by 4.3 liter GM L35 Vortec
Tom Hanks is selling his FJ40.
Forget Idaho, what does he have to do with cruisers such that he has signed the glovebox as if he were Carroll Shelby signing a cobra?I don’t follow culture, occasionally I make it to a movie every decade. I do know that Hanks is an actor. But I don‘t know what he has to do with Idaho. Can‘t read the date on the license plate sticker, so don’t know how old this pic is or if he just bought the cruiser in Idaho in the past.
Reminds me of George Castanza ridin' round in John Voit's car.Looks like he's gotten too old to drive it.
I don't know if the 40 is worth the asking price but I think the value of a 40 should be based on the condition etc. of the Cruiser and not inflated because of celebrity ownership.
Really $80K? Need to detail my 70. Thought half that would be a good price.Bid for the chance to own a 1970 Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40 at auction with Bring a Trailer, the home of the best vintage and classic cars online. Lot #44,877.bringatrailer.com
Let be honest. This is probably gonna sell close to 80k at least. Look at this BAT auction. Which is the nicer cruiser? I’ll let you take your pick. My pick is the 1970
it was one of the highest sold fj40s on BAT too, so if TH's truck sells for anything near what they say, it is outrageous.TH's truck is worth 50,000 dollar truck TOPS in my opinion. considering the crappy modifications
hood spares just never did anything for me, so
“Bonhams will be offering the vehicle in mid-August at the Quail Lodge Auction with a price guide of $75,000 to $125,000 USD,Is it selling on bat?
That site seems to do well pumping up prices.
A low miles fj cruiser owned by Jerry Seinfeld was sold on there for 68 k last year. At the time I think it was about 8-10k more than the average price for that model package and milage.
“Bonhams will be offering the vehicle in mid-August at the Quail Lodge Auction with a price guide of $75,000 to $125,000 USD,
which is close to what we’d expect a restored and modified FJ40 like this to sell for without the Hollywood A-list former owner.”
again, truck has no business being valued at that price imo. This seems driven, not original at all, weird mods, and just off i think
