 Relisted due to buyer who claimed he forgot he bought it.
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. the buyer saw it but didn't think he should have to pay it. I offered to cancel the sale and he didn't want to cancel either but left me negative feedback instead. 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.  Youtube video here (copy and paste in your browser). span >

The Cruiser is very original with most of the paint being original. A few spots have been touched up( front of hood. door bottoms and upper side panel corners). The paint shade of Toyota Sky Blue looks so slightly different in these spots but it's very close and only noticeable if you are looking for it.  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. Still has original soundproofing material in footwells.
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.  
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. New brake master cylinder just installed.
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.
