Although Toyota is mainly known for building reasonable, reliable family transportation, there have been a lot of special Toyota models over the years. I’ve highlighted four of the most interesting Toyota models currently listed for sale on Autotrader, all of which are unusual, special or downright strange — and all of which deserve to be highlighted as noteworthy vehicles for any car enthusiast to check out.
The FJ40 Toyota Land Cruiser was a special vehicle, as it heralded the arrival of the impressive Land Cruiser — a car that would be loved by enthusiasts for decades to come. The FJ40 lasted all the way to the early 1980s, and this is a very late-production FJ43 model, with a longer wheelbase and a removable soft top for maximum enjoyment. It’s offered by a private seller in Daphne, Alabama, for $33,500. Find a Toyota Land Crusier for sale
Although the Supra is Toyota’s most famous mid-1990s sports car, by a wide margin, the MR2 is definitely impressive. This particular MR2 comes from the car’s most-loved second generation, and it’s a fantastic example: it’s the more powerful MR2 Turbo, it’s finished in a handsome red and it’s traveled just 19,420 miles from new. It’s currently offered by Jerry Ackerman Toyota in Saint Louis for $29,998 — big money for an MR2, but nothing compared to a clean Supra from this same era. Find a Toyota MR2 for sale
After the Supra’s appearance in "The Fast and the Furious," the MkIV model has gained a significant following — and that has caused prices to skyrocket, especially in the last few years. The most valuable Supra models are the best-preserved ones, and this particular ’94 Supra Turbo is pretty nice: it’s traveled just 40,000 miles from new, and it’s clean and stock without the usual modifications Supra models often have. It’s offered by Collector Cars Chicago in the Chicago suburb of Aurora, Illinois, and it’s listed for $105,500 — a figure that would’ve been unthinkable a decade ago, but seems reasonable after some recent sales.

This is certainly one of the most unusual Toyota models on Autotrader: a 2014 Tundra with a supercharged V8 and a wide body conversion kit. The ad notes that "more pics and info are coming soon," and we’d certainly hope so, because this looks tremendously interesting — and surprisingly appealing as something of a modern-day Ford Lightning or a GMC Syclone. This Tundra is offered by Hanover Toyota in Pennsylvania for $126,888. Find a Toyota Tundra for sale
