FROM THE SELLER

This beautiful 60 series Land Cruiser has been thoroughly inspected, repaired, and tastefully modified by a Land Cruiser specialist. It drives great and you can expect to turn heads and strike up conversations everywhere you go. Everything including the A/C and power windows and locks works. There are no cracks in the original dash, which is rare after 30+ years. Roughly 50 hours of body & paint work were done in 2017 to repair some light rust damage and paint fades.

The current owner found this car in good original condition at a local Cars & Coffee where it was owned by a Land Cruiser specialist at the time. Knowing it was his wife's dream vehicle, the current owner arranged to buy it as a gift and make sure it was not only mechanically sound & thoroughly inspected for reliability, but tastefully modified as well. Some of the mechanical work that was performed included replacing the muffler, radiator, thermostat, and brakes. Everything else was inspected and repaired or replaced as needed. A front bumper by TLC/Icon4x4, Frontrunner roof rack, new stereo, and OME 2.5" lift were added at this time. The goal was to make this a unique and reliable daily driver without going overboard with modifications before gifting it to his wife.

All work including a complete overhaul of the A/C system that has been done since the current owner took possession has been completed by the same mechanic. It has been stored in a climate-controlled garage and rarely driven in the snow, although light surface rust on the undercarriage does show as it's a 30+-year-old 4x4. The only cancerous rust is very small spots on two of the inside bottom door corners and two inside lips on the wheel wells. There is also a tear in the driver's side seat about the size of a lip balm container. The engine bay including the firewall is 100% rust-free and in excellent condition. There are two small fluid leaks.

Compression test has not be done recently. It fires up instantly regardless of how long it sits or the temp. Slow leak from front diff.
