American actor Tom Hanks is selling his glorious Toyota Land Cruiser. Tom's FJ40 is very unique because the actor commissioned it "to be competent both in the wilderness and on the highway." It is also signed by the actor.

This Land Cruiser has a GM L35 4.3-litre Vortec V-6 engine mated to a GM-sourced 5-speed manual transmission. Unlike the very rugged Land Cruisers, this one has Warn front hubs, power brakes, power steering and beefed up shockers. The Vortec V6 conversion has been done under the close eye of the California Bureau of Automotive Repair.

On the outside the car sports some lovely Rustic Green paint with a white roofline and a roof rack.

Step inside and you will find Porsche high back seats and an old-school Sony AM-FM-cassette stereo with extra speakers at the back.

Interested? This one-of-a-kind FJ40 is set to go under the hammer at Bonhams will set you back $75,000-125,000. We reckon that's a bargain if you are a Tom Hanks fan.

What are your thoughts on this Toyota Land Cruiser?

  • I have no doubt it will sell because of the previous owner. I don’t know enough about that Vortec V6 to decide if I would prefer that over the standard Toyota power plant. I’ve seen some FJ’s with diesel motors that I wouldn’t mind having.

  • Tom is 'getting on a bit' and those old Landcruisers are bloody uncomfortable contraptions, no matter how reliable they are. Owning a vehicle you can't use has always struck me as a somewhat pointless exercise.
