Toyota Landcruiser (80 Series) 4.2cc Turbo Diesel (UK Reg) FOR SALE: CAPE TOWN

Toyota Landcruiser Amazon GX (80 Series) 4.2cc Turbo Diesel (UK reg)

Price: GBP 18,750
Available: Now
Location: Cape Town (South Africa)

N.B. All of the shipping and clearing costs have been paid for by the owner. This represents a saving of GBP 3,500.
N.B. The vehicle is UK registered and so is ideal for anyone wanting to drive back to Europe without the expense and complication of vehicle importation.

This exceptional 80 Series Landcruiser was shipped to Cape Town for a trans-African expedition that was cancelled before it started due to injury. The vehicle was prepared for the expedition by mechanics at Footloose 4x4 in the UK and JB Autos in Cape Town. A number of modifications have been made to the vehicle including coil spring suspension, underbody protection, aluminium bull bar, safari snorkel, roofrack, gas/electric fridge, built-in storage system with cargo rails and high spec digital media sound system. The vehicle is now in storage at a 4x4 fitment centre in Cape Town, so final preparation for life on the road can easily be arranged on behalf of the buyer in order that the vehicle is fully equipped and ready to go on arrival.

If you are looking for a clapped-out 4x4 that will cough and splutter from one bush mechanic to the next, this is not for you. If, on the other hand, you want an exceptionally robust vehicle that will get you safely and comfortably across Africa, look no further. The 80 Series Landcruiser has long been the vehicle of choice for overlanders and NGOs alike because of its power, versatility, build quality and comfort. This particular Landcruiser is in immaculate condition with only 100,000 miles (160,000 km) on the clock, the vast majority of it on tarred roads in the UK using high-grade European fuel. The price includes the cost of transatlantic shipping, customs clearance and agency fees, mechanical overhaul and vehicle modifications in addition to the base vehicle. Mechanic's report and work sheets available on request.

The vehicle can remain in Cape Town on the current ‘carnet de passage’ until December 2012. All enquiries should be directed to the owner, James Ricketts, at rikkitz@gmail.com.

A zipped file of photos will be emailed on request.

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 all over the world with the help of volunteers; 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, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
