1. Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser (1974 – 1983)
The Toyota FJ40 Land Cruiser was one of the best off-road vehicles every produced. The Land Cruiser is well-known for needing little to no modifications straight out of the factory and its stock four wheel drive was capable of overcoming just about any obstacle placed in its path by the driver. There are still FJ40s found throughout the world with more than several hundred thousand miles on them with both the stock engine as well as a popular Chevy small-block that produced even more power and better fuel economy. The vehicle is able to comfortably fit two adults in the front with two small children or equipment in the back of the auto. Air conditioning and power steering did not appear in the vehicle builds until 1979, and front disc brakes became standard in 1975.
