79 is a cab chassis either single or dual cab, 78 is the Troppy and 76 the four door.

Maybe they should call the dual cab an LC79 2 plus 2. :-)
(This site doesn't seem to acknowledge a "plus" sign?)

It is definitely a 79 and on the same platform as a single cab. The 78 is the troopy and has a shorter wheelbase with the 76 wagon even shorter again

That is what we thought, however our logbook has it classified as an LC78

Hi Alby, Pardon my ignorance, however we couldn't find a model number on the compliance plate. Where is yours located?

Cheers

Should be another plate on the firewall with model, colour, transmission and axle codes stamped on it. Either adjacent to compliance plate, or on other side.

Kor as Bob has posted.
Not near my vehicle at the moment and can't recall exact location but it is there.
Just looked up my quote and they called it a 78 Military but on the invoice it is noted as a LC Military Landcruiser.
On my rego papers they have the variant as a VDJ79R and the shape TTF (whatever TTF stands for)

OK, after contacting Toyota to question this I have been advised that there is no such thing as an LC 76 or LC79.... They are all LC78

Hmmm... interesting, mine also has a sticker on the "B" pillar with VDJ79 numbers on it.

Does it really matter, as long as it is original & not a "Chop" job?

The person at Toyota was wrong (why am I not surprised?)

Check the link here and click on the top photo of each model and read the numberplate.

Back in 2001, Toyota tried to call them all LC78 and realised they got it wrong.
