Would some tolerant person explain the main differences between the Toyota HJ60 . HJ61 , HJ62 please .
There is a 1989 HJ60 5 speed manual for sale privately in Perth , according to owner ( one owner too ) has only done 179,000 ks , immaculate inside & out , heaps of accessories etc and the asking price is $17,450 ONO . Sounds rather pricey to me , what do all the "crew" think" Thanks in anticipation

its a bit pricey to my 15000 grand tops for a mint condition.

The difference between the three...
Ive got no idea on the motors but cosmetics are
60 series is the first . Manual transfer case number plate in the right hand side of the of the rear bumper.

61 series is the second and a huge inprovement.... Eletronic H4 selection on the dash.They also changed the transfer case so you cold select H4 up to 40 kph. Manual remote central loocking on the inside of the drivers door. Rear number plate moved back to the rear tail gate. Large wing mirrors. and head rests for the rear seat. This model is a hybrid model before the 62 seies came out.

62 series last in the series and the biggest seller. most came with eletronic windows full central locking other than that its the same as the 61 series in the engine and drive line . Exterior was vasly changed with four headlights new grill ,dash and front guards.

My FJ62 [G July build] had round headlights and manual window-winders. Would there be a difference between diesel & petrol versions?Could be the Saharas had electric windows?

There was a rang of different packs, inluding the farmer pack with barn doors. I can say i have never heard of a 62 series with round headlights thats unusal.... does it have a square cut dash or a gentle slpoing dash from the drivers side to passengers side?

He's dreaming.

He's got hold of himself.

What a tosser.

Maybe you should remind him the car is 16 years old and he'll be lucky to get $12,000 for it. His name isn't Tim is it ?

BTW. I had a 1985 FJ62 with round headlights. That's what it was registered as, and thats what was on the compliance plate. Square dash, wind up windows, central locking, funny button on dash for 4WD activation, 3F motor.

I had a 1986 HJ62 which was a high roof line Sahara with the 12HT motor, electric windows, 2 A/C units, round headlights, manual and I sold it 2 years ago for $15,000. It had done 320k and was in very good condition.

Hi Des,
That model was a HJ61. Had one myself - was a superb vehicle with a great motor.

Cheers

Hi brian
First of all ALL HJ are deisel and ALL FJ are petrol
I have an 89 deisel and its a hj61, mate has 88 petrol and its a fj 62 both have twin headlights, and i always believed the earlier models with single lights were 60's but some other posts here kill that thought, but certainly some or all early models were 60 series.
I dont think an 89 would be 60 series, but stand corrected
The rig sounds great but expensive, maybe 11 - 13 tops !
Best of luck in your search , why not a TD grey import, low milage and usually great buying

HJ60: any model with the 2H, normally aspirated diesel from 1980-1986 with round headlights. Pre '83 models only had 4-speed box and slow glow plugs.

HJ61: Factory TD (12H-T). from early 1986 to late 1989 - considered my many to be one of the best motors ever put into a 4wd. Came either in a normal station wagon or Sahara (high roof, sunroof, fast glass, buckets, 8seater etc)

HJ62: I think referred only to the normally aspirated (2H) diesel from 1987 to 1989 with the square headlights.

FJ60/62 were the petrol equivalents. 2F petrol to '84 then 3F petrol from '85.

Look up Redbook on the net. http://www.redbook.com.au/

Thanks for all the info you bunch of kind buggers !! Yes it does seem that the consensus is that the price is a tad high . How big is a tad ?? !! It seems that he wants $100 for every 1000ks travelled !!
Just a final question you blokes , the 12HT motor that everyone speaks highly of , is it basically the same motor as the 2H but turbo charged or are the dimensions different such as the cc capacity via bore and stroke ??
Thank you all again

basically the same motor but definitly different direct injection for starters differnt fuel pump and plus other differences for the turbo IT IS NOT JUST A 2H WITH A TURBO. Best old school turbo disal ever made and still fetch huge money from wreckers even for "rebuilders" oh bore and stroke are same
