What was the final word on this FJ?
Aftermarket paint. Likely a salvage title at that price which means it probably needed a considerable amount of refinishing after the wreck. They just chose a non OEM color.

The majority of used imported cars in Guatemala come from the States. They are bought at auctions or purposely banged up before driven across the border to avoid paying higher customs/duty taxes. When I was planning my overland, I had a guy tell me to bash in my headlight and cover one of my back windows with cardboard so it looks lower in value. In driving on the main thoroughfares here, you will also often see one salvaged car towing another. So, ETHANEXPLOSION's assessment sounds spot on to me.
