Having recently toured ECD Auto Design’s impressive facility, where I witnessed firsthand the extraordinary craftsmanship that goes into each bespoke Land Rover and Jaguar, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the latest news from this innovative company. ECD has announced an exciting expansion of their product line to include custom-built Toyota FJ vehicles. Known for their meticulous attention to detail and passion for automotive excellence, ECD is set to breathe new life into the iconic Toyota FJ, transforming it into a modern masterpiece while preserving its rugged heritage.

The Toyota FJ, with its distinctive boxy shape and robust four-wheel-drive system, has long been celebrated as an off-road legend. ECD’s new venture promises to take this classic vehicle to unprecedented levels of luxury and performance. From the exterior design to the intricate details of the interior, every aspect of the FJ will be customizable, ensuring each vehicle is a unique reflection of its owner’s vision. The same high standards and innovative enhancements that have made ECD’s Defenders and Range Rovers renowned worldwide will now elevate the FJ to new heights.

Set to begin production in late Q3 2024, with deliveries expected by Q1 2025, ECD’s Toyota FJ retromods will join the ranks of their other luxury SUVs, benefiting from the company’s decade of expertise in creating best-in-class, one-of-one vehicles. CEO Scott Wallace emphasized the seamless integration of the FJ into their lineup, highlighting the perfect synergy achieved by leveraging their extensive experience in crafting custom vehicles.

ECD’s commitment to excellence is evident in the comprehensive specifications of the FJ retromod, which covers both the FJ 40 and 4-door ‘Land Cruiser’ FJ 60. Each vehicle will feature a Chevrolet 6.2L V8 engine, a 6-speed automatic transmission, and an upgraded high-performance aluminum cooling system. The exterior will boast BF Goodrich All Terrain tires, a slimline front bumper with daytime running lights, and a choice of any OEM color in a gloss finish. Inside, the FJ will offer hand-stitched leather trim seats, a painted dashboard, and a premium sound system, ensuring both comfort and style.

Visiting ECD’s headquarters, known as the “Rover Dome,” left a lasting impression on me. The 100,000-square-foot facility in Kissimmee, Florida, is a testament to ECD’s dedication to quality and innovation. Home to 90 talented craftsmen and technicians, the Rover Dome is where dreams become reality, with each vehicle meticulously hand-built over 2,200 hours. This new chapter with the Toyota FJ retromod is a natural progression for ECD, allowing them to continue their mission of creating unparalleled, one-of-a-kind vehicles that honor automotive legends while pushing the boundaries of luxury and performance.

For those as passionate about classic vehicles as I am, the anticipation of seeing the first ECD Toyota FJ retromods on the road is palpable. These bespoke masterpieces are not just vehicles; they are a celebration of automotive history, reimagined for the modern era. Whether you’re a long-time fan of the Toyota FJ or new to its storied legacy, ECD’s retromods promise to deliver an unmatched driving experience that combines the best of both worlds. Stay tuned for more updates as this exciting journey unfolds!
