Where do we begin with this rig? We are proud to present this tremendous Land Cruiser Troopy: It’s an all original, beautiful example of a Toyota Land Cruiser HZJ75 Troop Carrier, Australian Spec. This particular unit was ordered new by the Western Australian government and put to use as a defense department hauler and people mover. It saw very minimal use over the years and was always kept garaged. It has a verified only 107,000 original kilometers, or 66,000 original miles. It wears it’s original paint job,  single stage Toyota White 045. The body, paint, interior, exterior, is all 100% original. It presents exceptionally well, and to find one of these Troop Carriers in this original condition is very difficult – as these vehicles like to get used. They are incredibly tough and capable overland, expedition, and off road vehicles. It is essentially a van version of a Land Cruiser 4 door, with immense cargo space. Making it a top choice for overland camper conversions. These rigs can be outfitted and customized in so many wonderful ways. This is the ultimate platform, and an incredible foundation with which to begin your adventures. It is mechanically sound and has had a full inspection over at Land Cruiser NW, in Portland OR. They have given it a clean bill of health. This spec is an 11 seater, 4 seats of rear side facing benches, all with lap belts. These benches also fold up and against the side for extra cargo space. The front 40/60 split bench seats an additional 3 persons. It sports the original set of Toyota two-piece gray/blue steel wheels. Everything works as it should on this vehicle. It is in extremely good condition, you would be very hard pressed to find another in quite this original condition of this vintage. The truck presents with 0 rust, no significant body damage.  This rig is turn key, and simply ready to go.
