***Drive something that no one else has. There are very few diesel LCs in the US.

***If you're a business owner this is  the perfect vehicle to promote your business because of the head turning classic looks.



For collectors this one will only go up in value. Diesel 40s were made from 1974- 1984 according to Wikipedia.

We have kept the original paint color with accents of the original gun metal gray.

No one in the world needs reminding of the legendary reputation of the Land Cruiser. They go anywhere. they do anything. and they don't break down. This one will certainly go anywhere. but it won't go anywhere fast. That is because instead of being one of the FJ series Land Cruisers we are used to in the states. this one is an HJ. which means there is a pulsing. throbbing (there is no other way to say this) diesel between those elegantly sculpted front fenders.

This particular cruiser comes from Costa Rica. and it isn't alone. Costa Rica has become the hot spot for TLC imports these days. for a couple reasons. First. unlike Aussie imports. they are LHD. Second. a couple of companies have popped up down there in recent years that are manufacturing new body panels for old cruisers. and from what I have read. they are using original Toyota tooling. Considering that there is not much space to hide shoddy work on a vehicle that shows more metal than OzzFest. this particular example looks to have been restored pretty well.

Sure. a modern truck  is faster. and it has amenities. but modern truck  don't look nearly this good. They also don't have that magical off-road combination of solid axles and a diesel motor.

A dear friend  told me once. Modern trucks (like a Tacoma for example) are known for holding value well. When he bought his most recent vehicle. he set out to find a Tacoma. he bought a low mileage British luxury car because it was half the price of a Tacoma that had twice the miles. There is a very real chance. however. that an old TLC like this one would be worth more than you paid for it when you get around to selling it. Prices for vintage off-roaders have been climbing significantly of late. and show no signs of abating.
