Ladies & Gents,


The time has come and my eminent relocation is underway. So now moving houses, States, schools (children and myself), and all that jazz. The garage (and what I need to move) must thin.

  • 1983 Oz Land Cruiser Troop Carrier RHD
  • Really great condition. Not restored, but one of the best ones out there.
  • ~215k miles on 2F w/ LPG (registered as alt. fuel)
  • H41 (low first gear) w/ Fairey overdrive
  • Full float rear, 4.10s
  • OME F&R

You may recognize this as Hltoppr's old Troopy and it is indeed the same. No major changes to the vehicle since that time, but some minor items. Honestly needed nothing at all, just the fun stuff:

  • Frame and component cleaning and re-paint,
  • Some cosmetic body sand/paint/buff.
  • OEM Captains 40 seats in rear with OEM-style USLC40 seat bracketry
  • 16" Toyota "black hole" steel wheels
  • 255/85r16s
  • Various 2F tune-up stuff, cleaning, full-lube, fan fluid change, et al

This has been my DD since early 2009. The quintessential round-the-world vehicle with unlimited possibilities.

Engine purrs. Video and Audio of truck cold starting in morning.

Gotta love alt. fuel:





Asking $17k. Located in Phoenix, AZ through July. I may be willing to deliver to the Denver, CO area. Please do not low-ball, I am not in foreclosure nor do I absolutely need to sell to eat (yet :), still living on many years' buildup of stored fats).

A/C?

I love the picture. A 2F as a low emitting/ fuel efficient vehicle. For a second, I thought it was a 2H diesel.

edit: Nevermind Saw your ad on Mud. Runs propane too? Nice truck. Good luck with it!

Must take cold shower now. Must not show pix to spouse. Must not check available credit on HELOC line.

Fortunately Cal. emissions laws make this a no go I would imagine for those of us in the Republik.

I passed on this rig the first time it was for sale, I'd hate to pass on it again. I may have to sell the Jeep! :drool:

How easy and how much would it cost to put AC in it?

I can take additional interior pics, yes. It is dual-fuel. Primary gasoline, secondary LPG switched by an indiscreet switch in the cab. The only engine "modification" for this is a small throttle body manifold spacer.

As for AC, it would be a challenge but not horrible. There are aftermarket kits available. My plan was to add an FJ60 AC pump (bolt-on) and use a "hanging evaporator" in the cab. In fact, I had earlier sourced the LC100 hanging evaporator and was going to make a cowling for it to keep it mostly Toyota.

I think those tires and wheels really set that truck off nicely!! :Wow1:
