To Deliver the Finest Toyota Land Cruiser Restorations in the World!
Our restoration philosophy is really simple. Do one thing and do it really well!
The Vintage Cruiser Company only specialize in the restoration of the iconic Toyota Land Cruiser, so that we can deliver the finest Toyota Land Cruiser restorations in the world.
Our unique frame-off restorations are performed by our dedicated Toyota Land Cruiser experts, and our attention to detail ensures that every new Vintage CruiserTM is completed to original Toyota factory specifications.
Don’t Settle for Just Any Toyota Land Cruiser, Insist on a Vintage Cruiser!®
It all starts with a strong foundation and then we build up form there. Over the years, we have developed an extensive network of contacts and scouts, throughout Central and South America, which are continuously on the lookout for suitable restoration candidates. As part of our rigorous selection criteria, every restoration candidate we inspect must have a solid chassis, little to no body rust, and above all, matching numbers.
Only the Best-Kept Toyota Land Cruisers Are Chosen to be Reborn as Vintage Cruisers!TM
Once a selection has been made, we begin the demanding restoration process by completely disassembling the Land Cruiser down to its chassis. We then hand scrape and/or sandblast the entire body and chassis, as needed, and entirely rebuild it from the ground up. Unlike our competitors, we have the resources to reproduce virtually any Land Cruiser body panel to Toyota specifications, so we never have to use fiberglass (except as Toyota originally used on the roof) and/or bondo to build our Vintage Cruisers.TM Our dedicated team of master mechanics and Land Cruiser restoration experts then ensure that the engine, drive train, electrical components, and interior upholstery are all brought back to Toyota factory specifications.
Your Toyota Land Cruiser is Brought Back to Toyota Factory Specifications!
Once the restoration process has been completed, the newly reborn Vintage CruiserTM undergoes a thorough 150-point inspection to ensure that it it meets our exacting quality control standards. We then test drive (break-in) the new Vintage Cruiser™ for a minimum of 250 miles to ensure that all engine, electrical, drivetrain and suspension components are properly working. Our master mechanics then perform a full mechanical service to ensure that all engine and electrical parts are up to Toyota specifications, and that all drivetrain and suspension components have been fine-tuned and ready for final inspection and local government certification.
Your Newly Reborn Vintage CruiserTM Undergoes a Thorough 150-Point Inspection!
Once a final inspection has been performed and local government certification has been finalized, we carefully load and secure the new Vintage Cruiser™ into a dedicated, fully enclosed container, and take care of all shipping arrangements. We also handle all import/export related documentation, US customs clearance, DOT and EPA declarations, as well as the payment of all US import duties.
Upon arrival, we collect and drive each new Vintage CruiserTM from the Port of Miami directly to the largest regional Toyota dealer in Central Florida, where they perform an independent full service and diagnostic to ensure that nothing has shifted during the oceanic transit. We then deliver the Vintage CruiserTM directly to the client's front door.
