Footnotes

  • Introduced in 1960 as the J40, Toyota's iconic Land Cruiser is one of the few (possibly the only) 4x4 whose reputation compares favourably with that of the Land Rover. The Land Cruiser's impact has been considerable in the developing world, where its ruggedness, reliability and capability of mounting a heavy-calibre machine gun have endeared it to successive generations of local militia groups. Countless versions, both two- and four-door, have been built over the last 60 years on different wheelbase lengths and with either petrol or (from 1974) diesel engines, while some have been made with two-wheel drive only. The Land Cruiser was also built in Brazil as the 'Bandeirante' up to 2001.

    Dating from 1981, the left-hand drive Land Cruiser offered here is a BJ40, its designation indicating the short (90") wheelbase and 3.0-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine. As such it is a relatively late example of the original Land Cruiser family, which was superseded in 1984 by the J70 series. Noteworthy features include double rear doors and a roll bar, the latter a rarity. The vehicle was imported from Portugal in 2012 and since arrival has benefited from a new battery, new voltage regulator and £435 spent on pre-MoT work (bill on file). Currently displaying a total of 93,000 kilometres on the odometer, it is offered with MoT to November 2013 and Swansea V5C. A 'must have' for the serious 4x4 collector/enthusiast.
