Post FJ-45 body on new Land Cruiser chassy

OK, I admittedly don't know a whole lot about Toys, so maybe I'm out of my league here. But. . . I just saw a picture of a '99 Landcruiser fitted with the body of a '67 FJ-45 (or so they said). This looks like a WAY cool tow rig, and I'd like to know more about it. Is there a shop that does this, or is it a do-it-yourself deal? Can you get ahold of FJ-45 stuff in the US? I don't know where this picture was taken, but the rig looked brand spankin' new. Sweet!!

What's next? I've already emptied every pocket!

if it's the silver wagon yes the rig is way badd ass but they spent close to if not above 300,000 dollars building it <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
i am sure it can be done for a very small fraction of that .. go for it ...
tubing $2 dollars per foot
welder $800
grinder $70
tubing bender $500

having the skill to actually build something nice priceless

That's Rod Millen's custom cruiser built in tandem with Toyota Motor Co. so they could show it off at the big auto shows a ways back.

If you have enough money you could probably have one built but there was a HUGE amount of custom fabrication done on it.

Personally, I think it is one of the coolest vehicles I have ever seen.
