When it comes to vehicles we love here at Coolector HQ, we’ve got our heads looking firmly to the past truth be told but just because we love older vehicles doesn’t mean to say we don’t want them bought up to scratch a little and there are few better proponents of customisation jobs than the guys at Legacy Overland – a fact they have admirably illustrated with their extraordinary looking 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40.
Legacy Overland are a workshop that take a eye-catching and painfully cool vintage contraptions and transform them into new classic machines, breathing new life back into them in the process. Their obsession with build quality is plain to see in the Legacy Overland 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 and their impeccable craftsmanship skills blend with their affinity for first class aesthetics in each vehicle they restore.
To be honest, the 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser is an ideal muse for creating a stunning work of art and that’s exactly what the guys at Legacy Overland have done with this cracking customisation job which really rejuvenates a classic machine and brings it well and truly into the 21st century. Legacy Overland approach each customisation job with a impressive amount of zeal and entirely unique build objectives. They are a lifestyle-enabling workshop that delivers eye-catching and classic contraptions in a grown up package that will look and perform great, wherever you’re heading.
The Legacy Overland 1979 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40 had a simple enough objective – namely, to breathe new life into a top-notch 4×4 vehicle, whilst simultaneously preserving the recognisable and long-lasting features of classic Land Cruisers from the iconic vehicle manufacturer. This was an “entirely from scratch” job by Legacy Overland and the finished product is ready for any adventure, whether this be autumn road-trip or day at the beach.
Boasting a concours-level Desert Storm Tan paint job, this off-roading colossus immediately draws the eye and there is a thoroughly impressive attention to detail paid to its finish throughout. If you love retro style vehicles with a really modern look and feel, the amazing machines from Legacy Overland are going to tick all of the right boxes from a form and function point of view.
Devilish Design Detail
We’re loving the aesthetics of this restored Toyota Land Cruiser from Legacy Overland and their machine is mighty impressive externally but keeps this up on the inside too. It has top of the range upholstery on the seating, dash pads, doors and floor carpeting for exceptional levels of comfort. They added competition quality bucket seats, ready for harness-type seatbelts and technology is clearly a primary concern too with a brilliant Bluetooth-enabled RetroSound radio for all your listening requirement.
There are a number of workshops out there delivering superb customisation jobs on old-school vehicles but Legacy Overland are seemingly in a league of their own with amazing steeds like the one on show here. Wonderfully well crafted from scratch, you’ll be in awe of just how much skill has gone into the restoration and we can’t wait to see what else these guys have in store for the next few months and beyond.
