Tom Hanks Is Auctioning Off His Tricked-Out Land Cruiser Next Month

First it was his Airstream, now it's his Land Cruiser. Another iconic vehicle from Tom Hanks' collection is up for auction.
The nicest guy in Hollywood commissioned the classic FJ40 for off-road touring in the wilderness. It was also signed by the legendary 65-year-old actor himself. It will go under the hammer without reservation at the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction on August 13, where it is expected to fetch between $ 75,000 and $ 125,000.

Tom Hanks bought this custom Airstream trailer for his movie sets. Now it goes to the auction.
The custom cruiser has a rustic green exterior with a white roof and has been tricked to the nth degree. The model's characteristic in-line six-cylinder was swapped for a General Motors L35 4.3-liter Vortec V-6 that can produce 180 hp. The engine is coupled with a 5-speed manual transmission, also from GM. This new setup meets California's smog requirements so the car can be legally driven throughout the Golden State.

In order to be able to take it with you wherever you go, the standard ride height has been increased with Emu shock absorbers and warning hubs. The one-off was also equipped with a set of chrome rims and thick Toyo Open Country 31 x 10.50 R 15LT tires, which promise to turn any terrain into mince. The all-wheel drive also offers power brakes and power steering for added convenience.
As for the cabin, a pair of high-back electrically operated seats have been added by Porsche, although the originals are also on sale if you want to retrofit them. There is also modern comfort, such as air conditioning and a Sony stereo system with additional speakers in the rear.

Hanks rightly put his esteemed FJ40 through its paces. The interior is lightly used and the chassis has backcountry miles on it, according to the auction house. After all, it is designed for off-road use.
"This FJ40 is ready for its next owner to explore his favorite trails in a well-built FJ40 Land Cruiser," Bonhams said in a statement.
Next month, collectors and movie buffs will also have the opportunity to purchase the Oscar-winning actor's bespoke Airstream trailer. Bonhams will auction the camper, which was Hank's home on the set from 1993 to 2017, on August 13 and is expected to cost between $ 150,000 and $ 250,000.
