Are you looking for the perfect celebrity owned Land Cruiser FJ40? Well, then the Bonhams auction house has good news for you. This classic Toyota Land Cruiser is currently owned by Hollywood star Tom Hanks. And he put it up for sale.
The FJ40 is not for the Land Cruiser purist, as Tom Hanks has done some tweaking. To begin with, the factory engine was replaced with a more modern analogue of the Vortec V6 with a volume of 4.3 liters and a power of 180 hp. The unit is combined with a 5-speed manual transmission from General Motors. It is important to note that the new engine has all official documents and registrations, in addition, it has passed a strict smog-check in California (emission test).
But back to the improvements that the famous actor ordered at one time. The FJ40 also has increased ground clearance due to the installation of new shock absorbers, as well as enhanced steering and braking system. For better off-road performance, the vehicle is equipped with a set of Toyo Open Country tires.
Inside, there’s air conditioning, a radio with Sony speakers, and Porsche adjustable bucket seats. Tom Hanks did not keep his Kruzak in the garage, he drove it, but not much. The technical condition of the SUV is excellent, so that the new owner will be able to drive it along his favorite routes right after the purchase.
