Description for Toyota Land Cruiser 1980

Up for your considerations is my 1983 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ42 and its RARE. This cruiser is one that was originally in the Outback of Australia and found its way with a hop, kip, nd jump to Denver Colorado. I purchased this from the owner in Colorado who only sold it to buy a larger land cruiser. Ihave had the pleasure of enjoying this beauty for over a year. Along the way I added little items that I felt better suited this legend of a sporty utility. Here is a brief description and I'm sure I have left something out so please call and ask if you have any questions. (406) 788-5998 is my cell. Cruiser is located in Glasgow KY 42141. I will assist with shipping once item is paid for in full. I am 1.5 hours north of Nashville TN or south of Louisville KY. Vehicle is sold as is where is with a clear title.

This cruiser is mechanically sound and runs great. I took the liberty of doing all the mechanicalsbefore I touched the cosmetic issues. I wouldn't be scared to drive this cruiser to Alaska and back. Fuel mileage is around 28mpg if you can keep your foot out of it. :) The turbos on these make a huge difference. Night/day to be more specific. This kit is around $2500 plus installation but worth every penny. The boost can be adjusted but I have it relatively low. Easily monitored withthe new boost and egt gauges I installed. The heater will run you out in the winter time which is rare for these land cruisers. New heater core, nsulation, nd hoses make the difference. I installed the Old Man Emu springs, hocks, ushings and stabilizer to make this the very best possible ride on a land cruiser. Kit alone runs about $1800 plus installation. This cruiser is one attention getter.
Nowfor the cosmetic stuff: This cruiser needs a left and right rear panel and paint it the desert beige once installed. There is rust there so I would replace. I was going to use the cruiser this summer and fix the panels this winter but looks like I won't be getting around to it. The panels can be purchased for about $150 each plus shipping from Cool Cruisers of Texas. They are an easy replacement. There are a few dings and dents here and there but I am all about keeping this cruiser out of the mall parking lot. It belongs off the beaten path.
What you see is what you get. I am not trying to hideanything. These things are a tank and a great investment. With proper maintenance they should be the lastoff road vehicle you will ever buy. Be sure to compare all the options when purchasing a land cruiser. You will find these items add up very quickly.
Please call if you have any questions and I will answer to the best of myability. Thanks for looking. 406-788-5998
