Luxury became a priority for toyota to ship to the states. The 80s in the rest of the world came in much more cost effective and less luxurious trim levels. Heck, you can get a 100 in aussie with cloth seats and part time 4wd if IIRC.
Sure it is. You can still buy a gxl with cloth seats and pretty stripped down. ok not part time 4x4. I don't remember if that was with the 105 or not.
It's been a slow evolution and you skipped the fj62 and fj80. If you want to make those comparisions you could compare a 1964 fj40 with an F bench seats etc to a 1979 fj40 with buckets, stronger 2F, ac, powersteering etc. one is way more luxurious than the other.
