Up for sale in our Orlando Florida showroom is a very rare version of a renowned off road legend, the 1978 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ43 6-8 Passenger vehicle. This model was never directly imported into the USA, and this example was built in Japan, shipped to the mild climate of Southern France, and has only 8,032 miles /12,927 kilometers. This “43” is 14” longer than the smaller FJ40 and very few are available, fewer still with the B-Series 3.0L diesel with a 4-speed manual. 8000 miles ago (when new) this truck received a darker red overcoat, a fire station beacon, and a 24V Siren (inop) for a French village Fire Chief. The legendary “B” Series 3.0L Diesel is famous for its large cylinders pumping plenty of torque and often exceeding a half million miles. These trucks are legendary in off-roading circles for being reliable, strong, and extremely agile due to their wheel base. This rare truck is in original unrestored 8,032 mile condition. While late 70’s Toyota have enjoyed increases in market value, finding a nice one can be pretty challenging. This one is extremely clean, with an appealing beautiful red paint job, the original canvas top with new plastic windows, new correct sized tires and new batteries (2). You’ll find that the interior is far more civilized than you would expect in a world traveler like this, with its high-back bucket seats. Twin bench seats in the back with double full height rear doors increase the passenger capacity and ease of access, even if you’re not a French Firefighter. Original, durable non-slip rubber mats on the floor are included. Toyota’s 3.0 liter Diesel powered Land Cruisers were big sellers overseas for decades, and it has proven itself time and time again in sand, mud, snow, and it will just shrug off the elements and keep on truckin’. Around town, it’s smooth and has plenty of torque. The gear ratios are exactly right, and making this Land Cruiser feel quick and agile. The remarkably clean and simple engine bay is highly detailed, and the factory equipment is all intact right down to the original fluid reservoir containers. This Land Cruiser will please the traveler in anyone! Options include; 4x4, PTO, numbers matching, vinyl seats, seat belts and steel wheels.
