FOR SALE: Expedition-Prepared Toyota Land Cruiser VX 4.2 TD 80-series

Expedition-Prepared Toyota Land Cruiser VX 4.2 Turbo Diesel 80-series 1991 model with 141,000 miles (227,000km)

Purchased February 2005 for Overland-Underwater.com expedition from UK to Australia, the vehicle jas just cleared customs on arrival back in the UK.

Japanese import model with all differential locks and other gadgets only the Japanese get, plus spare wheel mounted on rear giving space underneath for second fuel tank. Many modifications done to vehicle by Footloose4x4 or by the expedition team making a true dedicated expedition vehicle. Still in great shape, with only a thorough service and a couple of small repairs she'd be ready to take on the world again.

See http://www.overland-underwater.com/forsale for more complete description and many photos.

Includes roof rack, roof tent, auxiliary fuel tank, bullbar, freshwater system, fridge, custom shelving system and many other customisations.

Some cosmetic damage to bodywork, see http://www.overland-underwater.com/forsale for details.

Regularly serviced and well looked-after as I really didn't want to have her die on me. I changed all fluids and filters more frequently than the recommendations from Toyota specify and all belts and brake components are genuine Toyota.

Viewings encouraged in Reading area by arrangement.

Please contact Martin on 07905 508975 or landcruiser@overland-underwater.com

Many thanks for looking.

If you are struggling to sell the car as it stands, do consider stripping off all the kit and selling it seperately - I suspect you will get a much better price for the individual item.

I have seen several people trying to sell a fully kitted out car and getting absolute peanuts whilst individual bits of kit can often go for 70-80% of the original price.

Just a thought.....

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine.
