car has been serviced and has history up to 80k then the last owner owned the car for 8 years and serviced it at a independant garage every 6 months or 5ooo miles, engine is very sweet and quiet as is the gearbox, changes up and down with no problems and over drive works spot on as do the 3 dif locks
front windows are a little slow but all landcruisers suffer from this and if i get time i will have a look at it
everything else works fine as far as i know, it is my daily driver and was built by me and a local garage for a big trip i had planned which i cannot now complete, some of the parts listed above are not yet fitted but can or will be as im still working on the car.
if i think of anything else i will let you know and if you can think af anything please feel free to get in touch. im not looking for a fortune for my car just to get my money back would be good.
