    ignore the subject, should be 40 series and not fj 40 as it was being produced with a diesel engine.

    Stumbled across a website of a company that STILL makes the FJ40 and sells it for $80,000.
    I guess people stilll buy it.

    In 2001, someone wanted to buy the closing plant from Brazil & make the same here for the LEAs etc. They wanted to beat Sigma with their LR Defenders, Karakoram with the Gonows, Adam with their Zabadast & Hyundai with their Shehzores.

    Was involved in the feasibility study and at that time the cost analysis revealed a price range between 500k-650k.
    The plan didnt go through as the 'areas' targeted for this didn't show interest in the 'Old' thing.
    Offering to public would have made no sense.

    mate the original toyota dies and steel stamps were shipped to brazil and thus what toyota brazil produced were exact replicas. however, in the beginning the BJ in brazil used the mercedez diesel engine. the only change was to the grill and front lights, the rest was all the same.
