The Toyota Land Cruiser 40 was produced from 1960 to 1984 and is one of the most well-known 4x4 vehicles in the world. Tamiya has reproduced this classic off-roader as an assembly kit R/C model on the newly developed CR-01 rock crawling chassis. This chassis features a tough ladder frame with aluminum side channels and resin crossmembers, 4-link suspension with aluminum rods, a 4WD system with lockable differentials, massive off-road tires with sidewall tread pattern, and dependable beadlock wheels. The body is of course accurately reproduced in durable polycarbonate material, giving fans a superbly capable rock crawler with scale realism.
