 I include this note with every listing as ebay gave me no choice:
My feedback score has dropped from 100% because of a malicious retaliation by a buyer who refused to pay my dealer processing fee but didn't want to cancel the sale either. The fee was clearly disclosed in large type just as it is in this listing. the buyer saw it but didn't think he should have to pay it. I reported the buyer to ebay for leaving malicious feedback but ebay didn't remove it. nbsp;it is well known if you are a seller on ebay that ebay does not protect sellers against manipulative buyer practices. I am including this statement to explain my recently diminished feedback rating.
This 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser has been imported from Rome. Italy. Reserve is very reasonable unlike most of these types of vehicles for sale on ebay. I always sell my defenders etc for the right price on ebay.  
The Cruiser is very original with most of the paint being original. When it arrived. the paint was probably all original but it did have some mild surface rust on the front of the hood. door bottoms. fenders and the rear upper side panel corners. I sanded it down. used rust converter. skimmed with metal reinforced filler and painted those areas Toyota Sky Blue.  Though the color was matched by the code. it's an old vehicle and it doesn't match the original shade exactly though it's close enough. I also repainted the front bumper Toyota Ash Grey.  I just wanted to treat the surface rust and stop it from getting any worse. It's impossible to match the color perfectly on any old vehicle. VIN number is BJ40016793
Chassis/frame is all solid with some surface rust. I cleaned some of it off and painted it. I didn't bother painting the whole chassis black to cover things up like those Costa Rican imports. there is nothing to hide under the truck. The shocks give it a mild lift I believe maybe an inch or slightly more. It's an Italian truck. Italy doesn't have rust issues like Northern Europe or North America does so any rust on this was minimal. Floor boards are all solid and original without any rust. Tub is also all solid. no issues. Odometer reads 39700 kms. I have no way of verifying if that is original as these have a 5 digit odometer.
Has the front heater which works fine. gauges work fine. I have driven it around town a few times. starts fast and engine is strong. This is a 24 volt. dual battery Land Cruiser. Radio is not working. not original anyway so no point in fixing it. just replace it.
Headliner is all good except for two very minor tears which could be sewn up quite easily. It is sagging slightly but it's not in bad shape at all. Has the unique European side mirrors. Dash pad is in good shape with two spots where some repairs have been made.
Has original Toyota front floor mats. I installed new genuine bumperettes recently. ne tail light lens. genuine rear ambulance door lock cylinder with keys as well as the correct 4 spd gear shifter knob. 4wd works great.
Though it is not power steering. it doesn't feel heavy at all once the wheels are in motion. The Land Rover Defenders that I typically import have power steering and actually feel heavier than this. Only takes a little muscle with the car at a standstill to turn the wheel as would be expected. Drum brakes on all four wheels.  hand brake works great.
Legally imported from Italy. all custom clearance documents available and it's titled in Virginia to my automobile dealer business name. Will be sold with clear Virginia title and customs clearance paperwork. Can arrange shipping anywhere at buyer's expense.

Please expect normal wear and tear for a used vehicle of this year and mileage.
