Land Cruiser HZJ77HV
A couple of months ago, my much loved Land Cruiser HDJ80 had an unplanned excursion into a telegraph pole and sadly went off to overland heaven.
I decided to go down the 'import from Japan' route for a replacement one, and have opted to bring over a HZJ77HV as it seemend like a nice change form an 80, had part-time 4wd (which i prefer) and had that nice '70' look. According to the specs/pics etc, this is a 4.2 normally aspirated 6 cyl lwb station wagon with leaf spring suspension and whatnot, that looks a little like a slightly smaller HJ78 troopy. However, try as I might, I'm struggling to find much info about these in Europe - so I'm thinking that determining parts compatability prior to prepping it might be a bit of a chore.
I therefore wonder if anyone out there either has one or knows much about them. Im particularly interested in the availability/compatability of parts and the availability of the 'usual' mod components. Also, any information about the foibles of this particular model would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks - and have a good weekend.
