Midsouthern Restorations

1975 Toyota Land Cruiser

This 1975 Toyota Land Cruiser came to us from Knoxville, TN. The owner purchased this unit has it was, needing restored and bought a few known parts for the next few years. This type of project is of sorts a basket case except all the hard parts were intact. The motor once hot wired and electric fuel pump added it started up and ran smooth. The oil pressure was checked and motor was deemed in very good condition. Not has much could have been said about the body. There was all the typical rust after sandblasting all parts and all the rotted body parts were bought and body repaired correctly. For a top notch job the body was painted through the floors and underside. The suspension and drive train were rebuilt has needed. The motor was cleaned and detailed including polish valve cover and new tune up. A new soft top was fit before paint. The new parts list seems to go on for some time but towards the end the Toyota 4 x 4 started to come together and will soon be cruising around. We learned much on the first Land Cruiser we had done. This made it much easier for this one. Watch for final pictures of this vehicle . The owner had a well thought out plan.
