The Bandeirante is an extremely rare alteration of the extremely popular Toyota FJ40 from the 1970s. The pairing of the classic FJ40 exterior, with the comfort of Mercedes Benz interior and a notorious Mercedes Diesel (from the factory) motor under the hood! The Bandeirante was only available for certain years through purchase in Brazil, and must be imported to acquire. This one was imported in 2019 and currently boasts a clean NV title and registration.
Since the vehicle has been imported into the US, it has gone through multiple inspections and has had necessary work completed. Everything works, with the exception of an intermittent fuel gauge. Considering how difficult it is to import the Bandeirante from Brazil, the condition is remarkable.
