The Land Cruiser FJ55 station wagon was introduced in August 1967, featuring a 2,700 mm wheelbase chassis and a newly designed body, and replacing the FJ45V 4-door van with a wheelbase of 2,650 mm. Although the FJ55 was classified as a van (commercial-use vehicle) in Japan, it was positioned as a passenger vehicle in overseas markets where it was principally sold.

The back door was either a bottom-hinged gate (which could be pulled open when its glass window was rolled down) or out-swinging double doors. The power train consisted of a 3.9-liter 6-cylinder gasoline engine (Type F) that developed 125 hp (boosted to 130 hp in 1969), a 2-speed transfer case, and a 3-speed manual transmission. To comply with the emission standards, the FJ55 for the domestic market was replaced with the FJ56V in January 1975, adopting an inline 6-cylinder 4,230 cc 135 hp engine (2F) and a 4-speed manual transmission.
