I managed to find these lovely Land Cruisers that both look ready to strut their executive privilege to the entire world. Enjoy!

I like the 54, and I wish it could 'strut its executive privilege' into my garage, but I have too many other 'babys' to take care of. The 48 is in need of a factory air cleaner. That one looks horrible, on a nice old car.

There was a time that I would not have given either one of those more than a quick glance, but now they are old enough to attract more attention. I really like the 48, but agree on the air cleaner.
Where the door strips a factory option? I don't recall seeing those on that early a model. They look normal on the 54.

That '54 has been for sale for at least two years, if not longer at the same list price. It gets regularly reposted after it doesn't sell. Neat car, I'm just not sure if prices for 4 doors have hit that kind of consideration for the unwashed masses, let alone the CASOs. I'd guess if he dropped it to the sub- $10K range, he'd get some bites.

That 48 looks like the perfect candidate for the convertible, chop top, carson top replacement therapy I was dreaming about on another thread.
Very cool car. Best looking front end of the era. WOW

I agree with the sentiments in previous posts, concerning the air cleaner on the '48. That's simple enough to remedy. I don't think the interior upholstery goes too well with the exterior paint color. It didn't really come that way originally, did it? It would look really sharp, if it was a darker burgundy or maroon color! Or with a dark and light green interior.
