Velocity Restoration 1974 Toyota FJ Impresses


Velocity Restoration 1974 Toyota FJ ImpressesVelocity Restorations, best known for their Ford Bronco restomods, recently went to town on a 1974 Toyota FJ creating an amazing rendition of the well-known Toyota off-road vehicle. With hours of time put into the project showing how they build all sorts of different makes and models, the craftsmanship is clear in the finished product. The results really do speak for themselves.

After languishing at a hunting camp in Alabama for 20 years the FJ was snatched up by its current owner and brought to the experts at Velocity Restorations in Pensacola, FL. He wanted the vehicle to retain most of its original equipment with a factory-style restoration. “This FJ was remarkably solid for sitting for so long,” said Brandon Segers, Co-Owner of Velocity Restorations.  “It still needed a lot of help though, and I think the end result has brought back the amazing character of this vehicle.”
