Overland Classifieds :: 1994 Toyota Land Cruiser FZJ75

Land Cruiser Troop Carriers are becoming popular for North American overlanders with international aspirations. Unfortunately, current shipping lead times mean getting your hands on one can take months or years. After receiving your purchased-sight-unseen 70-Series, plenty of maintenance and repairs may be required before embarking on your interior build-out dreams.

This left-hand-drive 1994 FZJ75 was imported from Venezuela in 2019 with a rebuilt 4.5-liter 1FZ-FE and underwent a restoration over the next three years. The truck is finished in its original yellow and features ambulance-style cargo doors, solid side windows (Japanese build feature), a new Toyota OEM black grille, new OEM side mirrors, side marker lights, IPF headlights, new ARB front and rear bumpers, Safari snorkel, and locking Aisin hubs. It is registered in Arizona and is a blank canvas ready for Sunday drives as is or further modification for long-term travel.

From the Seller:

“Built in Japan, this vehicle was believed to be delivered under government contract for Corpoelec, a Venezuelan electric utility company, which historically had all their vehicles in this yellow hue.”

Debuted in 1984 and still available in dealerships worldwide (except, of course, in North America), the 70-Series Troopy is the longest-running Land Cruiser in the world. Reliable and versatile, the long-wheelbase troop carrier has been the vehicle of choice for the United Nations, the International Red Cross, the military, police, and fire departments worldwide.

Acquired in 2019 by the seller and imported into the US in December 2021, this Cruiser recently underwent full driveline servicing of fluids, including front and rear differentials, transfer case, transmission, new front, and rear driveshafts, new Aisin clutch, and more.

Ashley Giordano completed a 48,800-kilometer overland journey from Canada to Argentina with her husband, Richard, in their well-loved but antiquated Toyota pickup. On the zig-zag route south, she hiked craggy peaks in the Andes, discovered diverse cultures in 15 different countries, and filled her tummy with spicy ceviche, Baja fish tacos, and Argentinian Malbec. As Senior Editor at Overland Journal, you can usually find Ashley buried in a pile of travel books, poring over maps, or writing about the unsung women of overlanding history. @desktoglory_ash
