There are a lot of beautiful FJs out there, but this one has to be near the top of the list. 

Imported from Japan and originally used off road in Columbia, this Thatcher-era FJ43 has been completely overhauled. The original 2F engine was rebuilt, along with the power steering and front disk brakes. It also got Old Man Emu suspension and a smooth-shifting five-speed manual transmission. 

If you must have it, clear your schedule: the car goes up for auction in Pebble Beach on August 20.
