If you love classic Toyotas, this truck will probably make you green with envy. It's a low mile rig that's in such great shape we decided it deserved some time in the lime light...
Okay I'll spare you from anymore bad puns; you get it, the truck is green... very green. But setting atrocious colors aside; this 1981 Toyota Land Cruiser is in fantastic shape. It's a HJ45 Troop Carrier, which features a 6-cylinder diesel engine and a heck of a lot of cargo capacity in the rear. Unlike most of the "troopies" you see on the market today that came from Australia, this truck was sold in South America, which means you'll be one of the few people with a left hand drive Troop Carrier.
From the description and pictures, it seems to be almost (95%) rust free with a strong running engine and good condition interior. Fortunately, the seller recognizes that the neon paint scheme isn't for everyone and states that they are willing to repaint the vehicle in whatever color you desire upon purchase. The best part of this truck though isn't the nice interior or even the new paint job (though it's certainly needed) but the odometer that reads just 60,000 original miles. For a current price of just $15,400 this truck is a great deal and won't last long.
Let us know what you think below. Would you drive this green machine?
Here's a look at what the seller has to say:
This auction is for an Extremely Rare Diesel, regular left hand drive Troop carrier. These trucks are rare, but even more so, you can't find a regular left hand drive Troopy anywhere. Most come from Australia where they are right hand drive, but this one is from South America.
Whats even better about this Troopy is that it has only 60,000 miles on the odometer( 102k kilometers) and is 95% rust free.
Anyone who knows Land Cruisers will know that a Troopy in this condition, left hand drive, and diesel, is almost impossible to find.
The engine is strong and fast enough to drive down the highway, yet gets good mpg because it's diesel. It doesn't blow black smoke except at initial morning start(normal for diesels)
This is a perfect daily driver, yet will turn heads because you just don't ever see these on the road.
This Troopy isn't stock color, but if someone wants this beautiful Troopy painted another color, let me know, and I can get that done for you included in the price of the winning bid.
